Please email your entry to by midnight on Saturday 7 January 2012, along with your name and age.

The two winning entries will be mocked up into road signs and displayed on the Scoobits stand at the Toy Fair in January. The winners will also receive three Scoobits of their choice.

Full details of how to enter the competition are available here.
