If you catch the eye of a child, his or her parents won’t be far behind. Many promotional products that appeal to children also capture the attention of adults or anyone who’s young at heart.
Rebecca A., our toys and novelties expert, shared some of the latest trends—as well as some old favorites—in this fun category. Just add your logo to these promotional toys and share the fun with customers, prospects and staff for an easy-going approach that will take them back to their childhood.
Classic plush animals
“Stuffed animals and plush items are classic giveaways guaranteed to make both kids and adults smile,” Becky said. “I love the oohs and aahs I get from my co-workers when I have samples at my desk. People can’t resist soft, cuddly and cute!” Your logo on one of these stuffed promotional pets is going to land on their desk or go home with someone and continue to attract attention. Your name stays on their mind for months or years.
Check out Sidekick Shorty, a five-star promoter available in 13 adorable animals. “The hedgehog is my favorite!” Becky said. “We have some new trendy animals coming soon, too.” Another good choice is the Sammy Sloth, an incredibly soft and cute new animal that carries your message on its T-shirt. “We also offer a variety of animals with a stylish hoodie instead of a standard T-shirt, like the Koko Koala. Put up the hood and take the cuteness level up a notch,” she said.
Coloring books for kids and adults
“Need a low-cost, simple marketing piece that will win with both adults and kids? We have you covered. Coloring can offer a screen-free way to be creative, relax, focus and possibly even improve fine motor skills,” Becky said. Coloring books for adults are a genuine phenomenon that has been recommended as a way to relax and ease tension.
“Adult coloring was a huge trend a few years ago and we still have a lot of customers looking for an easy, therapeutic and stress-relieving activity,” she noted. Our Stress Relieving Adult Coloring Book is available in five themes—with or without colored pencils. The Coloring Books are available in six titles full of images to color and puzzles to get your message across. And check out our Fun Packs. They offer the same titles packaged with a box of crayons.
Also consider the Kid’s Coloring Book To-Go Sets for travel fun. These are available in five titles and paired with a box of mini colored pencils.
Bright idea: Light-up giveaways
“If you are hosting a nighttime or low-light event, light-up toys and novelties would be a great option to bring extra attention to your message,” Becky said. “Swords and wands are fun printed giveaways for kids and the young at heart.” Check out the Light-Up Dino Sword and Unicorn Light-Up Wand—both fun new additions. Light Up Bracelets help bring your message to their hands, literally. The Flashing LED Bracelet and Tube Bracelet are Becky’s favorites.
Light-up promotional items also are ideal for cheering on your favorite team. Add another layer of fun to basketball or hockey games with the Light-Up Foam Cheer Stick or Pre-Programmed Message Fan.
