Who Won the Mariuca Teddy Bear? *

As much as I love having one of Mariuca's famous contests here at my blog, I always have a difficult time when it comes to choosing my winner. I'd dread the closing date simply because the next step requires me to make a final decision, something I sometimes find hard to do, especially when I receive so many wonderful entries.

Now that my 2nd Blogversary Contest is officially over, it is time for me to bid farewell to my adorable Mariuca Teddy Bear as he sets sail to his new destination. Though I've had the best time hanging out with my Teddy Bear this month, I am thrilled that he is headed for an exciting new life with his new family.

THANK YOU to everyone who took part in the Mariuca Teddy Bear contest, you guys made my 2-year anniversary celebration much more fun and exciting with your participation. Some of you put in so much effort into your entry, which made it almost impossible to single out just one winner. I also love all the names you've suggested for this adorable teddy bear. I was much impressed by your earnest creativity in trying to impress me with the best name for Mariuca's Teddy Bear. However, the agreement remains that there will be only one lucky winner and I have to say that this is the hardest selection I've ever had to make for any of the contests at Wishing On A Falling Star so far.

So are you ready to hear the new name I've chosen for my teddy bear? Without further ado, I am truly happy to name the Mariuca Teddy Bear with his new name - BEAR-iuca! Congratulations to Roxy of Roxiticus Desperate Housewives for coming up with the most perfect name for this adorable bear! Looks like BEAR-iuca is going to the USA! :)

With the name BEAR-iuca, Roxy has cleverly combined the bear with his master Mariuca, resulting in the cutest, most unique name appropriate for an adorable bear. When you hear BEAR-iuca, your thoughts will definitely turn to Mariuca right? I thought this was an excellent name choice, thanks Roxy! :)

Roxy's two lovely daughters, which is one of the reasons Roxy wants to win, even came up with a catchy cheer for BEAR-iuca and it goes a little something like this.

BEAR-iuca, BEAR-iuca,
Amazing teddy cheer
BEAR-iuca, BEAR-iuca,
BEAR-iuca come live here!

The other reason Roxy would like to bring home BEAR-iuca is because she plans to share this lovely bear with everybody in the blogosphere. She has made a solemn promise to share BEAR-iuca by sending him around the globe to make an appearance on hundreds of blogs! I love the idea of BEAR-iuca having his own little adventure, making new friends, spreading love and cheer, which ultimately moved me to select BEAR-iuca and Roxy as the winner for the Mariuca Teddy Bear contest YAY! :)

Once again, congratulations to Roxy and thank you very much to the rest of my participants. Don't despair if you did not win this contest for you still have a shot at bringing home BEAR-iuca's sister from MPG! Isn't she adorable? You have until the 18th of December to send in your entry so hurry! To find out how you can WIN the MPG Teddy Bear in pink, click here.

Thank you to all my participants, Mariuca loves ya!

Oooh, BEAR-iuca is coming to live with us...I just turned my computer back on as London and Maddie were reading bedtime stories in my bed, and they are now so excited they can hardly get to sleep.

Thank you, thank you, thank you Genie Princess. You know we will give BEAR-iuca a happy home here in the Roxiticus Valley...

Now we just have to get to work on sending him on a magic carpet ride around the blogosphere!

Hi Debbs! Thank YOU for ur lovely Mac entry, it was really very moving, love ya lots! :):):)

Bobby Revell December 06, 2008 8:32 AM

Congratulations to Roxy in this big win! To be honest, I knew she would win as soon as I saw her entry. I almost participated, but I knew there was no way I could top that creative name and I was hoping she would win, even though I don't really know her. This is a fantastic name Roxy!

I almost went with Maribeara, which is also a cool name. I'm a little surprised no one else thought of it. I won one contest already and wanted someone else to win. Next time, all bets are off and I'm going for the win!!!!!

Mariuca December 06, 2008 6:10 PM

YAY! Thanks Bobby, so you were secretly rooting for Roxy yes? He he, how could I NOT love a name like BEAR-iuca??? It's da best, congrats again to Roxy! :):):)

Ooooh Maribeara is kinda cool too he he, you still have time to win the MPG Bear if you like Bobby! If you win, will u be keeping her for urself or give her to someone else? ;)

Nessa December 06, 2008 8:06 PM

Heartiest congratulations Roxy! Take good care of BEAR-iuca aka Randy Rover ya... hehe

Mariuca December 07, 2008 4:52 PM

Awwwww thanks Nessa! Don worry, BEAR-iuca aka Randy Rover will have a great life in the US! Thank you for joining my contest too sweetie HUGS! :):):)

Mariuca December 07, 2008 4:52 PM
