It's Man Time!

Wednesday 7 November 2007

Competition Ends: Friday 7 December 2007

What with a live army exhibition, BMX biking, hot rodding, top live bands... petrolheads should already be feeling the testosterone which will be on display at the Big Boys Toys Expo 2008 in Auckland. However, the ladies will also be catered for in the now infamous GirlZone - so it really is one to ensure the relationships stay healthy!

And as if that wasn't enough, we can get you to the show... win one of 5 double passes by leaving a message on the event page telling us why you so richly deserve tickets.

A firm favourite on the social calendar, the 3 day expo from the 9th to the 11th of November has added some new ideas this time around - and we've taken a look at some of the best of them.

The Life.Style zone gives you the chance to have some real man time, like in the Tui’s Big Backyard. A 40ft container has been converted into a bar, and is jam-packed with fine amber nectar for a refreshing drop to quench your thirst. Tui will also be providing a continuous stream of entertainment including hot bands, competitions and comedians. And in the festive spirit of Movember, the Tui Brewery Girls will be there judging you on your manliness by the size of your mo!

This year BP Ultimate Big Boys Toys shows off amazing vehicles you’ll wish were yours. For the latest elite motor vehicles, you can’t go past Lamborghini, Aston Martin and Bentley, including the newly released lightweight Limited Edition Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera - all of which will be on show on the Independent Prestige stand. Nearby see the all-new H3 2007 Hummer, designed for the extreme off-road with a Vortec® 3700 engine. And don’t miss the amazing Carver 1, which combines the agility of a motorcycle with the comfort and safety of a car, in which Jeremy Clarkson from BBC's Top Gear admitted he’d "never had so much fun in a car.”

For the first time, the Vans Skateboard Nationals, presented by Cheapskates and World Industries, will be part of the show. Competitors will demonstrate their moves on the ramps and half pipes in the specially designed arena, with $6000 cash up for grabs.

The New Zealand Army will be also be performing in the arena, showcasing state of the art equipment and the many full and part time career options available. And a perennial favourite at Big Boys Toys is the wonderful miniature world of radio controlled car racing. Toyworld Manukau, St Lukes and Sylvia Park will be showing a range of Nikko Radio Control Cars, Boats, Motor Bikes and Helicopters and giving visitors the opportunity to win a Radio Control Porsche Kayenne with a camera on board valued at $599.

But ladies - there is really no reason to feel left out as the GirlZone looks set to keep you amused while your bloke wanders about, drooling. You get the chance to be waited on hand and foot (for once) as the Cut Above team offers you a complimentary mini-manicure, hairstyling and fresh makeup. Pole Dancer, Emily Knowles will be demonstrating the art with prizes for those game enough to give it a go. You never know, you might learn something new to take home!

You could also pop down to You Photography, a professional studio that specialises in glamour and beauty images, with makeup artists and hair stylists to get you ready for the camera. Or if you’ve ever wanted to ask a question about your car, make sure you go and have a friendly chat to the all-girl Pitchix team and pick up tips to impress next time you’re round the men.

So all in all, both women and men could benefit from this Expo - and let's face it, there's nothing cooler than looking at fast cars really is there?
