THE smile of one local girl has shot her to a winning position in the 2014 Bonds Baby Search.

Three-year-old Lyla Rose Graham and her mum, Emma McDonald, of Modanville, were over the moon to find out yesterday that Lyla Rose had been selected as the winner for the three to five years Bonds Choice category, in a competition that had drawn a total of 62,970 entries, followed by a staggering 500,000 votes.

"It's all very exciting, it's been a very exciting morning in this house," Mrs McDonald said yesterday.

"You don't expect it to happen when you enter.

"Everyone thinks their own kids are beautiful so we thought we'd enter her. We were just very surprised, there were that many entries.

"You never really know what they're looking for in competitions like this."

With a beaming smile and beautiful red hair, Mrs McDonald may not be that biased when it comes to her daughter's beauty.

Despite that, she said, there are no plans to get Lyla Rose into modelling - they simply entered the competition for some fun.

However it's certainly very exciting for Lyla Rose and her family.

"I think she (Lyla Rose) was pretty excited because we were excited, I don't think she understands but the excitement rubs off on her," Mrs McDonald said.

Lyla Rose loves to dance and enjoys playing outside with her siblings Tayah, 6, and Coen, 18 months.

The 15 little winners of the competition get the chance to be a part of the Summer 2014 Baby photographic campaign, return flights and accommodation for the shoot (if needed), a Bonds gift card to the value of $300 and a framed photograph of the entered bub.
