From there you will be prompted to sign into a Google, Yahoo or Twitter account to verify your request. If you don’t have any of these accounts, you can create a Google account on that page… and it takes two seconds.

Once you are officially a “follower” you can email your name, address and the promo code: Mamma Mia to PLAYGROUND (click on PLAYGROUND for the email or email subscriptions@playground-magazine.com) and they will take care of setting you up for your FREE 2010 subscription. Capish?

This is an amazing opportunity for Central Florida parents!
