Boony's back! And this time he's got company....
With the Ashes upon us at last we're giving you the chance to enter the fray, so rediscover your competitive edge and enter our competition to win the star of the last Australian summer and his new pal.
We've got five Boony and Beefy dolls to give away courtesy of the nice chaps at VB, so answer the question below correctly and you could have the pleasure of their company for the whole of the Ashes series... and beyond!

Enter our competition and you could find out for yourselves what makes him - and now Beefy - tick....
