I received a lovely email recently from 12 year old girl asking if she was allowed to enter giveaways that are hosted on

The official policy on (and you and your parent or guardian can find more information on the Privacy Policy) is that we do require that minors have permission from their parents or guardians prior to entering giveaways. I do not require individuals to mail in identification to validate their ages and honestly, I don’t want to take that route either. The moment that anyone enters a giveaway on, the person is declaring that they have read the giveaway information and other relevant (read: Privacy Policy) information on the website, and thus agreeing with having either permission or being in the age of majority.

If you would like to enter a giveaway on and you are under your own country’s age of majority, please ask (and receive!) permission first. This is especially important as if you were to win a giveaway, you would be required to provided your mailing information (name and a valid mailing address) to the person/people sponsoring the giveaway.

If you are the parent of a child who loves Blythe and would like more information regarding how giveaways are handled, please contact me.
