2010 Video Contest Winners

After a much closer contest than we ever anticipated, the results have been tallied and the winners are:

First Place:

Are We There Yet?
We loved the sweetness of these 7 daughters and that the whole family worked together to show how Timberdoodle products can transform traveling from downtime to productive fun!

Second Place:

Intelligent Play
What a delight to see second generation homeschoolers with such a zeal for learning. With 5 little ones 6 and under, we were impressed not only with these children’s excitement but also their sweet spirits toward each other.

Third Place:


Homeschool Bunch

Returning contestants from last year, the Jones family pulled off a very nice Timberdoodle version of the Brady Bunch Theme song. Nicely shot and well-edited, this one is a pleasure to watch!

Runners Up:

(in order of entry)

Legos Love Timberdoodle
This was the only video to feature Mashoongas, and we loved the clever stop-motion!

Timberdoodle Contest Entry
Being horse-lovers ourselves, we don’t think this family could have picked better stars for their first-ever stop-motion film.

The Package
Great voices and use of different products in this one. Having the Stickfas assemble the Snap Circuits was a great touch!

A Day in the Life of a Timberdoodle Preschooler
A family favorite here, it is very obvious that this family enjoys spending time together and that little Hope is learning a lot, every day!

An Ode To Timberdoodle
The research and well-timed visuals on this musical production are very impressive, good job!

Arrival of Timberdoodle Products
Amazing is an understatement here. The lighting, painstakingly precise stop-motion and professional use of camera focus combine into a very, very nice commercial.

Timberdoodle Sleuths
We were blown away by the top-notch filming, clever storyline and amazing acting in this video. It is an absolute pleasure to watch these five siblings work together!

Timberdoodle ABC’s
This filmmaker took a creative approach to the contest, and used Timberdoodle products her family owns to spell out Timberdoodle!

Timberdoodle Birthday
This 11-year-old shows how Timberdoodle’s products make great birthday gifts-even for stop motion figures!

Our Timberdoodle Genius
A personal favorite, this older brother has made an outstanding documentary showing just how his younger brother has become the genius he is today.

Timmy Doodle’s Vocabulary Lesson
This video has been the most quoted at business meetings, and our video team has been asked by the boss why we never use sparkly things like they did. Hmm… I think we’ll have to work on that!

The Search for the Timberdoodle
Since a Timberdoodle is a rare game bird, this hunting video was a perfect fit. Thorough planning, great acting, filming and editing combined to make a really nice film, worthy or rewatching!

Techno-doodle!
Fast-paced and filled with bouncy, joyful children; we’re not sure it is possible to watch this video without smiling! Most impressive of all though, was the elaborate domino sequence spelling out Timberdoodle.

Bring Home Timberdoodle Catalogs!!!!
The only film written from a graduate’s perspective, we loved the whole-family involvement. While we loved seeing the firefighter in the kitchen (many of us are or have been firefighters) probably my favorite scene was when little Judah imitated his big sister in correcting the hillbilly’s grammar!

Math Madness
An excellent dramatization of the real-life story we’ve heard from multiple families: What happens when a younger student just can’t wait any longer to move into Teaching Textbooks? Very professionally filmed too.

Fighting The Flames
It is obvious that this filmmaker put hours into this wonderful production. Since many of us either are or have been members of our local fire departments, the storyline was as captivating as the action. Excellent work.

Timberdoodle Learning
There are so many different types of media in this film! From computer-drawn animated paintings to stop motion with construction kits to real-time action, this video includes them all!

My First BrainBox
If you’ve ever wondered how BrainBox is played, wonder no longer. This clear video will let you pull up a chair and watch a round!

We Love Timberdoodle!
These young ladies are exceptionally poised and do an excellent, well-thought out job of explaining what they like about the Timberdoodle products they use.

  • (I recognize I’m about to further support Mike’s argument with information that Mike’s previously provided, thereby technically bringing nothing new to the table but) it’s been well documented by Mike that the Big 12 has been burnt multiple times by a championship game when a team with National Championship aspirations has been upset in a conference title game. The fact that they would add one when as of now they’re under no obligation to, simply doesn’t make sense.
    This is simply a step to avoid being in a weaker position relative to other conferences based simply on the number of teams in the conference.

  • Thank for sharing your childhood story.

  • I have been a big supporter of RVCA from day one and considered it to be my favorite labels until RVCA began supporting UFC and the metro meat heads that follow it.

  • Why is it that most other power conference commissioners seem to say things of substance and Bowlsby says nothing? We would like a championship game but we wouldn’t. We are discussion expansion but don’t want to. We are stable but we are discussing scheduling alliances to fend off further expansion. Obviously speaking in absolutes isn’t possible with these topics, but c’mon…..say something or say nothing, not both.

  • I simply couldn’t leave your website prior to suggesting that I actually enjoyed the usual info a person supply on your visitors? Is going to be back frequently in order to inspect new posts

  • How about typin quotes’ in google..
    References :

  • just look at the dagger gt then youl forget the bugatt,you cant even compare the bugatti and the dagger gt

  • Mack: The Forbes article, which I have a link to on one of my articles, dealt with conference payout. The Big 12 pays each member an equal amount based upon conference income. The ESPN/FoxSports contract pays each team $20 mil per year for 1st and 2nd tier broadcast rights.

  • i like all the cars

  • Why is the Dodge Viper Hennessey venom 1000 Twin Turdo ever mintioned it is in probuction it can be dought and it beat out the Vernon in 2009 hitting 258mph then Vernon came with the SS Vernon bearly deating the new production Hennessey…So could some one please tell me why its never mintioned in these fastest cars ever strings…

  • Vodka in my life.

  • I’m a San Francisco native born and raised in San Pancho. Orale! I find your website kinda addicting ese.

  • Hi again It seems I can’t read, as I just checked your site and saw your notice on on-site camping. Sorry about that. Will check in later in the year for all the registration information. Thanks again.

  • They have been reporting potential alliances w ACC, SEC and PAC 12 to replace the FCS games w quality OOC games for SOS purposes.

  • VA means ballence of oppisites

  • no
    Haven’t you heard or noticed, the market is glutted with too many models, and we only have enough petroleum to last another eighty years (damn americans and their gas guzzlers).

  • Hi I can volunteer for Saturday of the August long weekend….

  • I actually like the round robin and no championship game. Everybody plays everybody else and the regular season champ represents the conference. Of course cash will rule. If there are more $$$ to be made with a game, they will play it.

  • What a softcock !!!

  • Vodka in my life.

  • The question I have about the recent internet postings that say that the Big 12 brings in more money per school . . .

  • via Arduino Blog

  • The question I have about the recent internet postings that say that the Big 12 brings in more money per school . . .

  • Replacing FCS schools w quality competition will result in stronger SOS, more tv demand and more tv money but will some see this as “the club” getting smaller when the powers that be are calling for equal access to a NC? Could the Big East cry COLLUSION if they are by and large excluded from the schedules of the top conferences?

  • It’s not going to matter anyway … eventually, the SEC will have a scenario where two teams from each division will play during the season, it’ll work out they meet again as #1/#2 in the SEC championship game, #2 will win and they’ll swap places and meet a third time in the national championship.

  • The question I have about the recent internet postings that say that the Big 12 brings in more money per school . . .

  • I’m a little ahead of this given the stance, but I think I want to wait and hear a little more about how th e schedule would function if there were a championship game. A couple options:

1 · 2 · 3 · · 13 ·
