    It was pretty bad. Typical tall poppy syndrome in Australia.

    I entered for the 40% off but now think I shouldn't have bothered. I'm not against voting per se but I'd everyone votes for everyone else's baby then those votes cancel each other out don't they?

    All they win (apart from being in the Bonds ads, etc) is $300 worth of clothes! How tight is that of Bonds??

    What I think is really pathetic is the Facebook business pages bribing people to vote! Giving them a discount or putting everyone that votes in the draw for a prize. Seriously so desperate!

    I have never been tempted to enter my child in the Bonds competition. I think that sort of thing brings out the worst in some parents and I want no part of that.

    But then, I also don't find Bonds baby clothes all that cute. Is that unAustralian?

    I think anyone would have to be lucky to win a competition like that with so many entries. I don't need to enter my boys to proove they are the cutest

    DD1 was approached to be a Bonds baby when she was under 12 months (before they started the competition. She was in a stripey Bonds onesie at the time and looked adorable (and also a bit like a jailbird). DH and I refused it in the end as she was too little and it wouldn't have been much fun for her. Can't believe what a circus it's become.
