Father’s Day Book Set Giveaway

1st June 2020

Father’s Day is 21st June this year and with lockdown it’s a bit trickier to find gifts.

So I’ve managed to get a set of books that you could win to give to a man in your life!

Things To Do While You Poo and Things To Do While You Poo 2 are books designed to provide fun activities whilst the man or boys in your life are on the toilet.

Created by Alex Smart, the pocket-size books contain:

  • fart jokes
  • word finder
  • dingbats
  • sudoku
  • mazes
  • dot to dot
  • M.A.S.H game
  • words games
  • finish the doodle
  • poop checklist
  • bathroom quiz
  • riddles
  • bathroom reports

To be fair, I think girls and women would also love them; back in the day when I had time to sit on the toilet without being interrupted I know I would have!

My 8-year-old son is constantly on the toilet reading books, so I doubt his dad will get a look-in before the boy has got his hands on these.


To win a set of these books in time for Father’s Day, simply complete any or all of the things below.

Entrants must be in the UK over the age of 18 and I will verify entries before randomly selecting a winner.

No payment was received for this post. Two books were supplied for the purpose of this giveaway. All opinions are honest and my own.
