A Pinypon has been spotted on the Eiffel Tower
August 21, 2014  |  Written by Carlota Nelson

We recently informed you about the first Instagram contest created by Famosa. The prize is 2 nights for 4 people at any hotel in the world. To participate, we asked you to take your favourite Pinypon with you on vacation. The contest, inspired by the French film Amelie, has motivated children to take fun photos of their Pinypon in the most surprising of places. Their imagination and creativity have surpassed our expectations. There are pictures of Pinypon at the beach, the pool or in front of important monuments such as the mythical Eiffel Tower in Paris. Today, we´ve been able to speak with this travelling Pinypon, who has made the French capital her favourite vacation destination.

Thank you for taking the time to speak with us. Please, tell us what Paris is like.

PinyPon:  It´s the first time I´m here and it won´t be the last. Paris is so much fun and there are many things to do. If you like eating crepes, it makes it that much better.

You uploaded a picture of you in front of the Eiffel Tower. Tell us about it.

PinyPon: The Eiffel Tower is amazing. Did you know that it´s more than 300 meters high? You can go to the top in an elevator o climbing the stairs and see Paris in 360 degrees. From there you can look down upon the neighbourhoods of Saint Germaine or the Latin Quarter as well as the Versailles Palace and the Louvre. Being up there was a magical experience.

What else have you been up to in Paris?

PinyPon: We spent an entire day at the Science Museum that has a planetarium, an aquarium, a submarine and the City of Children. We also went on a boat cruise along the River Sena.

It sounds like fun. What will you do before you return?

PinyPon: Today we´re having a picnic at the Luxemburg Gardens. We’ve ben told that we can rent our very own sailboat and make it float.

Keep up the good work and don´t forget to upload more pictures.

PinyPon: Thanks. We do have plenty more. The good thing about this contest is that we can upload as many as we want.

Good luck.

PinyPon: Merci. That means thank you in French.

If you´re away or start your vacation now, you still have until the 15th of September to participate. Don´t have your Pinypon with you? Don´t worry. If you´re travelling within Spain, you can purchase them here.

Check out this video with your children and start getting your cameras ready. Since there are not limits to the amount of photographs you can upload, this contest is a great way to have fun this summer.

Participating is real easy. You just have to upload your Pinypon picture to Instagram with the hashtag #PinyponTour and become a follower of @famosatoys in Instagram.  All of them will be compiled in our Facebook page where children will be able to vote for their favourites. The winner will be selected by the app´s most voted.


Remember that the important thing is to participate. Even if your picture doesn´t win the big prize, finalists will receive one of the 10 Pinypon packs (Brazil, France, London and Japan) and a Pinypon airplane.

Remember to take your Pinypon with you on vacation. Next time you travel, they might be paying for the accommodations, anywhere in the world.

Good luck and have a great summer!
