Here at LoveCrafts we’re coming together with our friends from Portico books to offer you a fantastic prize. 1980s Bumper Activity Book by Mel Elliot of I Love Mel is full of fun activities and some great crafts from arguably the greatest decade ever. When we saw the Pong duvet set inside we just couldn’t believe it! All those hours spent knocking a dot across the screen recreated. So we convinced Mel to make us an awesome, double Pong duvet cover with score keeping pillow cases and we’ve decided to give it away to you, our fans!

To win all you have to do is tweet your favourite 80s memory, mentioning @LoveCrafts_CB and adding #Pongduvetcomp by the 31st of January. (We might even give extra points for a picture. Side ponies and mullets get extra extra points.)
