If you catch the eye of a child, the 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, our toy and novelty giveaway expert, shared some of the latest trends—as well as some old favourites—in this fun category.
Just add your logo to these novelty promotional products 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 20 adorable animals. “The hedgehog is my favourite.” Becky said. “We have some new trendy animals coming soon as well.” Another good choice is 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 Mystic Unicorn. Put up the hood and take the cuteness level up a notch,” she said.
Colouring books for kids and adults
“Need a low-cost, simple marketing piece that will win with both adults and kids? We have you covered. Colouring can offer a screen-free way to be creative, relax and focus,” Becky said. Colouring books for adults are a genuine phenomenon that has been recommended as a way to relax and ease tension.
“Adult colouring 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 Colouring Book is available in five themes—with or without coloured pencils. And check out our Fun Packs. They come in the same titles but are packaged with a box of crayons.
Also consider the Kid’s Colouring Book To-Go Sets for travel fun. They are paired with a box of mini coloured pencils. Help make those road trips less stressful with this handy giveaway.
Light-up novelty 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 novelty promotional products 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 favourites.
Light-up promotional items also are ideal for cheering on your favourite team. Add another layer of fun to basketball or hockey games with the Light-Up Foam Cheer Stick or Pre-Programmed Message Fan.
Super Kid brand giveaways
“We created the Super Kid brand just for children, and it’s loaded with value. These inexpensive and fun branded items are perfect for any organization that works with kids or provides services for families,” Becky said. Here are a few of her top Super Kid picks:
