Gruffalo toys

1st November 2014 marks 3 years since the Junior ISA was introduced by the government.

JISAs, as they are also known, are today firmly established as a popular way to save or invest for a child resident in the UK who didn’t qualify for a Child Trust Fund.

To mark this special occasion, Scottish Friendly is running a Facebook competition called #SelfieAt3. You could win a set of 6 Gruffalo cuddly toys including the Gruffalo himself as well as other popular characters from Julia Donaldson’s marvellous book series: the mouse, the squirrel, the owl, the fox and the snake.

How to enter the competition

It’s easy to enter – here’s how:
