Design a Squeeble - May 2020 - The Winners!

After a huge amount of deliberation, we have finally chosen our winner and four runners-up in our latest "Design a Squeeble" competition. The standard of the entries was quite simply amazing, with some incredibly creative, imaginative, funny and heart-warming designs. Well done to everyone who entered. We've tried to feature as many entries as we could below in addition to the winners. If yours isn't included, we're really sorry... there were just so many amazing designs that it wasn't possible to fit all of them in.

WINNER: Goggles, by Alice, 9

Favourite food: 
anything, as long as it is in pairs!
 joking with his friends
fruit salads
Interesting facts: 
Alice wrote that Goggles dislikes fruit salads, although enjoys eating anything else as long as it's in pairs; collects underpants, although fears a pant thief stealing them; and takes his name from his love of swimming, sporting a single goggle over his lone eye. 

Why we chose Goggles: We absolute love the creativity behind Alice's marvellous Squeeble, who is based on a pear and likes things in pairs! Not only did Alice draw her Squeeble, she went one step further and made a model of him, out of a pear - this was one of our favourite entries of all time and we can't wait to get to work animating Goggles and sharing him in one of our apps soon! Well done Alice - we think Goggles is "pear-fect"...

RUNNER-UP: Luna, by Anoushka, 9

Favourite food: blackberries & dragon fruit
Interesting facts: Luna likes trying to find all the constellations with her friends. She's a friendly Squeeble who just wants to have fun. Her spots start to glow every full moon night and she collects stars to light up her path.

Why we chose Luna: Our resident teenagers helped us judge this competition and there was a collective 'Ahh' when we came to Anoushka's entry - her drawing seemed to convey a gentle soul with her kind, expressive eyes, and delicate colouring. Indeed, Anoushka says Luna is 'a friendly Squeeble who just wants to have fun. Her spots start to glow every full moon night and she collects stars to light her path. Her hobby is trying to find all the constellations with her friends, while eating blackberries and dragon fruit.' We thought Luna would be a magical addition to the Squeebles family. Well done Anoushka. What an amazing creation! 

RUNNER-UP: Natur, by Montgomery, 8

Age: 300 million
Favourite food: home-grown cherries
Interesting facts: Natur loves to bake, especially for his friends' birthdays. He bakes the most delicious cherry cake with lime icing, and cherry sauce on top. The cherry antennae on his head allow him to seed new forests, which is an incredible super-power to save the planet.

Why we chose Natur: Eight-year-old Montgomery designed Natur, who wowed us with his brilliant colour and mass of tentacles. Natur is an environmentally-minded Squeeble, whose 'cherry antennae allow him to seed new forests, which is an incredible super-power to save the planet.' Natur is 300,000,000 years old, but still loves to bake, especially for his friends' birthdays.

Perhaps you've seen her flying through the sky and mistaken her for a real rainbow? Well done Catherine - what a brilliant Squeeble.

RUNNER-UP: Graylie, by Franky, 11

Name: Graylie
Age: 56 years, 5 months, 5 days
Favourite food: apples, oranges, lemons, pears, blueberries, grapes and dragonfruit
Interesting facts: Graylie has some white spots in him. These are in fact holes, not white spots, and the cause of these holes is because there is so much black-and-white television missing. Graylie’s hope is that it will all turn up at some point, and he can be full again.

Why we chose Graylie: the brief details above are about 5% of the information Franky sent us about Graylie. Never before have we received so much detail about a Squeeble. You can read the full story behind Graylie here and see his greyscale home to the West of Squeeble Island on our map here.

She has a great compassion for every animal, but owls, which she fears. She can put her legs into her shell if she needs too . And Dottie has a great love for gardening and tries her best at everything. 
Why we liked it: We loved what Shepherd said just as much as the accompanying artwork - tenderhearted just feels like such a beautifully descriptive word and Dottie seems to embody this in so many ways. Keep writing and drawing, Shepherd - we love your work. 

Jump, by Anthony, age 6

Age: 9.5
Favourite food: He loves Brussels sprouts because they give him energy to jump.
Interesting facts: Jump can jump higher than an aeroplane and he is the best! He loves to play rugby and scores lots of tries.
Why we liked it: How could we not love a Squeeble who is jet-propelled by Brussels sprouts? What an amazing idea, Anthony. And what fabulous artwork too. 

Ringo, by Toby, age 9

Age: 10
Favourite food: exotic fruit
Interesting facts: Ringo likes flying through rainbows while drinking smoothies. 
Why we liked it: We liked Ringo's soft stripes, and most especially the spikes along his head where the colours reminded us of the exotic fruits Ringo likes to eat (specifically, dragonfruit!). Great work, Toby! 

Stormy, by Grace, age 8

Name: Stormy
Age: 8
Favourite food: Chocolate ice cream 
Interesting facts: Stormy is like a mirror. If you shine a light at her, it reflects back! She doesn't look like a mirror though. Also, Stormy was struck by lightning. It made her look like a thundercloud. It also made her super strong! 
Why we liked it: We really loved the description - this is exactly the kind of magic we like in a Squeeble - thank you, Grace! 

Viney, by Daniel, age 5

Name: Viney
Age: unknown
Favourite food: Honey
Interesting facts: Viney's hobbies are playing with his vines. His colour force is green.  
Why we liked it: Viney has great visual impact and we loved his hobby of playing with vines - he sounds like a very gentle creature. Thank you for sharing your wonderful artwork with us, Daniel! 

Safe Sammy, by Charlie, age 7

Name: Safe Sammy
Age: 8
Favourite food: Apples 
Interesting facts: He is from the NHS to keep you safe. 
Why we liked it: In this odd time of lockdown, a rainbow straight from the NHS feels wonderfully topical - we loved Safe Sammy's extra legs, which we imagine would help him rush around the hospital keeping his patients safe! Thank you, Charlie!
