Kids’ WB! is teaming up with Hasbro to give away five “BIG Premiere Prize Paks” during the sweepstakes. Each hour, kids will be invited to find a "BIG Clue" on-air in order to be eligible to win. Once the viewer knows all four clues, kids may enter by logging onto www.KidsWB.com by Monday, September 15, or by sending in a postcard with the correct clues by Monday, September 22. Prize packs will include the BIG THINtronix Telephone, BIG THINtronix Radio and an oversized Kids’ WB! inflatable Chair.
During the weekday lineup, Kids’ WB! also will highlight the new sixth season of Pokémon by joining forces with Nintendo to give kids the chance to win 500 E-readers with a deck of sixty EX: Sandstorm trading cards. To win, kids will have to locate the "BIG Pokémon Clue" each weekday afternoon and enter by logging onto www.KidsWB.com by September 22, or by sending in a postcard.
