Engadget UK giveaway: win an Ollie bot and spine ramp courtesy of Sphero

Forget about those disappointing festive socks and try to win one of these things instead.

The leftovers have been eaten and the games put away, but don't let your festive spirit dwindle just yet. We know all too well what Christmas can be like for big kids. Sure, everyone likes a nice scarf and fresh underwear to see in the new year, but functional presents just aren't the same as fun ones. Well, lucky for you, our friends at Sphero have supplied us with four of their smartphone-controlled bots to send out as belated Christmas gifts. We've got two of the white Ollie bots and two Darkside models up for grabs, with each winner also receiving an Ollie Spine Ramp for getting their trick on. As per usual, you can enter the competition up to three times via the Rafflecopter widget below, but don't forget to give the rules a quick scan first.

  • Entries are handled through the Rafflecopter widget above. Comments are no longer accepted as valid methods of entry. You may enter without any obligation to social media accounts, though we may offer them as opportunities for extra entries. Your email address is required so we can get in touch with you if you win, but it will not be given to third parties.
  • Contest is open to all residents of the UK, 18 or older! Sorry, we don't make this rule (we hate excluding anyone), so direct your anger at our lawyers and contest laws if you have to be mad.
  • Winners will be chosen randomly. Four (4) winners will receive either one (1) Ollie or one (1) Darkside Ollie with one (1) Ollie Spine Ramp.
  • If you are chosen, you will be notified by email. Winners must respond within three days of being contacted. If you do not respond within that period, another winner will be chosen. Make sure that the account you use to enter the contest includes your real name and a contact email or Facebook login. We do not track any of this information for marketing or third-party purposes.
