Habbi Habbi 2024 Contest

Posted by Habbi Habbi on

Thank you thank you to all of our parents and kids for your amazing submissions. We had so much fun watching the videos - and had such a hard time choosing. We couldn't choose 5 so we expanded to 8 (listed below). We feel so, so lucky to be a part of ALL of your language learning journeys. 



Dear Habbi Habbi family:

We are so excited to be running this again. Last year was SO delightful, watching so many of you share posts of your kids playing and learning with Habbi Habbi. Don't feel shy - whether your little one is just a newborn or in late elementary school. Last year's winners ranged from 2 to 10 years old. We can't wait to see your submissions and recognize and reward our language learning superstars! 

Details on video submission below. Similar to last year, we will pick 3 winners and 2 honorable mentions. Biggest prize for #1 winner is $750 (details below). 

How to enter Habbi Habbi Contest:

1. Make a video of your child repeating after the Wand / reading the book 

    • It can be any Habbi Habbi book (examples below) 
    • Can be any length - but should be at least 30 seconds - and we'd like to be able to hear your little one (not just the Wand!)  
    • Wand & Book must show up at least once in video (e.g. prompt at beginning) but can show up as many times to prompt as needed 
    • Vertical format   
    • While the video does not need to be professional (self recorded on your phone is fine!) - good lighting helps! 
    • Note: We are NOT looking for perfection - see FAQ below about what would make a good video. 
2. Send us the video through THIS form here

3. Deadline: Mid March (March 15, 2023 - NOON PST)

4. Winner(s) will be announced on this page and on social by March 31
    • 1st prize: $750 ($500 + $250 gift card to Habbi Habbi) 
    • 2nd prize: $500 ($250 + $250 gift card) 
    • 3rd prize: $250 ($150 + $100 gift card) 
    • Honorable mentions (2): $100 gift card
Note: Winner videos (& submissions) may be posted on our social channels - e.g. Youtube or used in other forms of sharing and promotion (Note: You can specify in your submission if you'd like to include name in the posting - or - omit name and only include age.) A kind note that Habbi Habbi will own the rights to video submissions; details in below section. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask. 



    • Child: 10 and under 
    • Up to 2 entries per person 

    If I entered last year, can I enter again?

    • Absolutely!!  

    Which book should my child read?

    You are welcome to choose any book you'd like! Some considerations: 

    • Which is their favorite?  
    • How can I stand out? We expect we will get naturally more videos with early vocabulary from Book of First Words. Are there other books you can read? For example - Video of a new years resolution reading a page from Healthy Habits (or I Am Kind) ... Video pairing emotions with facial expressions from Book of Emotions ... Duo-video of siblings having a conversation from Book of First Phrases ... for the advanced child, reading the 7 Wishes for you or describing some months from Book of Seasons ... and more! 

    How long should the video be? 

    • At least 30 seconds - though there is no strict rule on length. We just want to ensure it's long enough, so we can hear your little one - and not just the Wand!  

    What are you looking for? 

    • Videos that elicit JOY
    • We'd also love to be impressed. :) But remember - being impressed means different things at different ages. We recently saw a video with a baby babbling and were very impressed! 
    • Videos that show how your child is using / progressing with Habbi Habbi. We have seen so many fun videos and heard so many stories about how kids have learned and progressed - that we would love to see and share the proud progress they have made. :) 

    Do they have to have memorized the content? 

    • No. They can use the Wand to prompt them - as many times as they'd like. 
    • If they have memorized it (amazing), just use the Wand once in the beginning as a prompt - so the Wand is still included in the video. :) 

    If the Wand is a prompt, should it play only target language mode? 

    • If your child is repeating after the Wand, it might be helpful to have it play Target language only mode. If you don't have that mode on your Wand, see instructions HERE. (Of course you are still welcome to use Bilingual mode!) 

    My child is very young and not speaking clearly - but they are babbling after the Wand - is that ok?

    • We are not looking for perfection - just demonstrations of learning and progress. So if you'd like to show how your baby or young toddler is learning from the Wand, please feel free to submit - even if the words are not very clear!  

    Other FAQ: If you have other questions, DM us on Instagram @behabbi or email us at info@habbihabbi.com. We will populate this as more questions you have come in.
