Toy Giant Mattel Aims To Bring Personality Into Play

From Marketing Week:
Toy giant aims to bring personality into play

The outlook is bright for Mattel. Not only has it acquired Thomas the Tank Engine owner Hit Entertainment, the company behind Barbie is using marketing to make an emotional connection with parents.

Already one of the biggest players in the toy industry, Mattel further increased its size just before Christmas with the purchase of Hit Entertainment, owner of megabrands Thomas the Tank Engine, Bob the Builder, Fireman Sam, Angelina Ballerina and Pingu.

But it is not just through acquisitions that Mattel is aiming to maintain its 7% growth in worldwide net sales last year. The business is altering its communications strategy to focus on its brands - which include Barbie and Fisher-Price - rather than products.

Mattel senior marketing manager Jenny Watson, who was promoted to the role in January, says: “Our marketing used to be very functional, telling mum about the five main benefits of a product.”

However, in November last year, Mattel launched a campaign that attempted to rekindle that love for Fisher-Price with a softer, more emotional appeal. Mattel UK PR manager Sarah Allen explains: “The new campaign celebrates the joy of learning, rather than just the development benefit. We’re very good at that but mum approaches it in a completely different way now.”

As part of the new approach, the Fisher-Price website now gets parents to find products based on their child’s age, rather than looking for a specific toy, such as Dora the Explorer.

“Mums now get information from the internet and peer groups, whether that be mummy bloggers, [online portal] Baby Centre or Argos TV. The new strategy has included working out when mums want the ‘aww’ moment [of seeing their child do something] and when they just want to compare prices.”

The advertising has been shot with an intimate feel, which simulates a hand-held video camera. Instead of using models, the new campaign features real families to show the genuine connection between mother and child.
Fashion-led website Barbiewow.com, which also launched last month, aims to encourage girls to extend their play online
Watson adds: “What we’re giving mothers in the TV ad is that emotional connection and just the key words they can search to find products. Fisher-Price is a long-lasting brand but it’s had a bit of dusty feel to it and this has been about injecting a bit of modernity.”

This sense of modernity has also translated into product lines. The Apptivity case, which launched earlier this year, is a protective cover that turns an iPhone into a toy, which lets babies and toddlers play with it safely.

Allen says: “Babies always want what you’ve got. Parents do give their iPhones to their kids to play with and then wonder why they end up down the toilet. It’s understanding that happens and providing a solution for it.”

Mattel has also brought physical toys into the digital space, including Hotwheels cars that interact with the iPad without damaging it.

But Mattel’s modernisation isn’t all about digital technology. Barbie, too, has had an update. The toy is refocusing on fashion, digital extensions and aspirational product launches, such as a presidential doll.

The new Barbie Wow campaign, which launched last month, mirrors the new Fisher-Price strategy by featuring girls imagining their Barbies in a range of different role play situations, rather than promoting one particular product.

Fashion credentials

Fashion-led website Barbiewow.com, which also launched last month, aims to encourage girls to extend their play online, and again reinstates Barbie as a product for older girls because of its fashion credentials.

Tie-ins with fashion leaders such as hair salon Bleach and edgy knitwear brand Sibling at London Fashion Week and a range of T-shirts at Miss Selfridge also emphasise the aspirational heritage of the brand, says Allen.
Family ties: Thomas the Tank Engine is now part of Mattel’s intimate campaign strategy
She adds: “From the 50th anniversary we were able to reintroduce Barbie’s fashion credentials, and reconnect with girls who are probably now 25 and who still have that fond memory of growing up with Barbie. So we’ve almost unlocked another market there, and it keeps new mums close to the brand.”

Mattel has also targeted the adult market by creating a range of high-end collectable dolls, creating figures from the Twilight films, HBO series Mad Men and a William and Catherine Royal Wedding gift set.

Another line that has helped boost Mattel’s portfolio is Monster High, which launched two years ago. The antithesis of Barbie, the line features dolls that are supposed to be the sons and daughters of famous monsters such as Dracula and Frankenstein’s monster.

“We expected this to be an older girl brand and to appeal to collectors, but we’ve discovered that people are really engaging with it, and creating their own monsters,” says Watson.

As a result of this insight, Mattel launched Create-a-Monster, which features wigs, faces, dresses and limbs that children can assemble into their own doll.

Watson says: “We have a lot of content, including a 20-minute episode that aired on Nickelodeon, a website and three-minute webisodes where girls can learn about and engage with the characters.”

Billboard Exclusively Offering "Big Time Rush" Fans The Chance To Listen To Six Audio Tracks From The New "Big Time Movie" Soundtrack A Week Early

The official website of Billboard magazine, a international newsweekly magazine devoted to the music industry, have unveiled a "Big Time Rush" exclusive - they're giving fans of the hit Nickelodeon boy band "Big Time Rush" an exclusive chance to listen to six brand new BTR songs which are from the official movie soundtrack of the upcoming brand-new original Nickelodeon television movie "Big Time Movie", including the songs "A Hard Day's Night", "Revolution", "Help", "Can't Buy Me Love", "We Can Work It Out", and "I Wanna Hold Your Hand", a week before the "Big Time Movie" official soundtrack album, which features the 'Big Time Rush' boys covering six Beatles classics, is released in the USA, which you can listen too here on the official Billboard magazine website!
Exclusive: Listen To Big Time Rush's 'Big Time Movie' Soundtrack

On-the-rise pop quartet and Nickelodeon stars Big Time Rush will deliver their best John, Paul, George and Ringo [John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr (also known as "The Fab Four") impressions in their London-set feature film debut, "Big Time Movie," which premieres on Saturday, March 10 on Nickelodeon. The "Big Time Movie" official soundtrack, which features the BTR boys covering six Beatles classics, will be released on March 6 (you can pre-order the album on iTunes here), but take an exclusive listen to all half-dozen songs a week early [here on Billboard.com]:

In "Big Time Movie," the four Big Time Rush members (Kendall Schmidt, James Maslow, Carlos Pena Jr. and Logan Henderson) head to the U.K. in a mission to save the world that involves jumping out of helicopters, a teen spy named Penny Lane, and a powerful anti-gravitational device named "The Beetle." Maslow tells Billboard.com that the movie is "'Austin Powers' meets 'James Bond,' with the Beatles," and that Big Time Rush did their best to honor the Fab Four with takes on "A Hard Day's Night," "Help" and "Revolution," among others.

"We were all a little nervous -- I mean, they're the greatest band in history," says Maslow. "We weren't trying to replicate them, but wanted to pay homage to them as much as possible."

The "Big Time Movie" premiere and accompanying soundtrack was preceded by the November release of Big Time Rush's second studio album, "Elevate," which has sold 208,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan. On Monday, the band announced the itinerary for its massive summer tour, which kicks off July 5 in Columbus, Ohio and will run through mid-September.

Rachel Crow's first U.S. tour announced: opening act for Big Time Rush

Rachel Crow, the precocious teen who came in fifth place on "The X Factor" U.S. in 2011, is doing her first U.S. tour as the opening act for Big Time Rush on "The Big Time Summer Tour." The concert trek will be at mostly outdoor amphitheaters and will go to major metropolitan areas in the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico.

The news comes soon after it was announced that Crow, 14, has signed deals with Syco Music/Columbia Records and with Nickelodeon. Crow has a recurring role on the Nickelodeon sitcom "Fred: The Show," which is expected to premiere sometime in March 2012.

She also has a starring role in a still-untitled musical show on Nickelodeon, which has ordered a pilot episode and will later decide if the show will be picked up as a series.

In a Ustream chat on February 22, 2012, Crow said that she hopes to film the Nickelodeon pilot sometime in the fall of 2012. She also said in the chat that she hopes to record her album as soon as possible, and she wants to do music that has a "retro" sound.

Big Time Rush, a male quartet, is also signed to Columbia and stars in a self-titled Nickelodeon TV series.

Crow is the second former "X Factor" act be chosen as an opening act for Big Time Rush's 2012 tour dates. One Direction (the boy band that came in third place on "The X Factor" U.K. in 2010) is opening for Big Time Rush from February 24 to March 9. As previously reported, One Direction is upstaging Big Time Rush on the "Better With U" tour, since numerous audience members are cheering louder for One Direction and are leaving the show right after One Direction performs, so Big Time Rush is left playing to half-empty venues.

One Direction (which is also signed to Syco/Columbia in the U.S.) is rumored to be in talks to star in its own Nickelodeon TV series. One Direction also made a guest appearance on Nickelodeon sitcom "iCarly," in an episode that will premiere on a date to be announced.

Crow and Australian teen idol Cody Simpson are doing select dates on Big Time Rush's "Big Time Summer Tour." Tickets go on sale on March 9 at 10 a.m. Eastern Time, and can be puchased at www.ticketmaster.com or by calling 1-800-745-3000.

Here are the tour dates:

Rachel Crow will not be on all of the tour dates. Check with the venue box office or ticket agency to verify who will be the opening acts.

They are a big-time deal to fans of Nickelodeon, and now Big Time Rush is out on their own headlining tour and playing tonight at the MGM Grand Theater at Foxwoods.

It was nearly five years ago when Nickelodeon began auditioning for their new teen series, “Big Time Rush.” More than 1,500 teens auditioned for a part on the show and in the end producers chose Kendall Schmidt, James Maslow, Carlos Pena Jr. and Logan Henderson as the main characters.

The show revolves around four hockey players from Minnesota chosen to form a boy band and the misadventures they have in Hollywood. And though the adventures may be scripted, the music they make is very real.

The Nickelodeon network has a partnership with the Columbia/Epic Label Group, which is why music is incorporated throughout the show and why Big Time Rush managed to land a TV deal and record deal at the same time. But it’s their talent and likeability that have made both ventures such a success.

Their show debuted in January 2010 to 6.8 million viewers, making it Nickelodeon’s highest-rated live-action series. They have already been signed to a third season, which has started filming and should debut later this year. But between takes on set, the guys hit the studio.

Big Time Rush’s debut album, “B.T.R.,” dropped about nine months after their show first aired and their fans were clearly excited. The record debuted on the Billboard 200 at No. 3, selling more than 67,000 copies in its first week. It later peaked at No. 1 on the Top Soundtracks chart and became certified gold by RIAA. But Big Time Rush didn’t stop there.

Since the show first started, the guys have done four TV movies for Nickelodeon, recorded two albums and a Christmas EP and sang the national anthem at the Dallas Cowboys Thanksgiving Day game. Now the guys are tackling their first headlining tour.

The Better With U Tour started in February and saw some dates sell out in a matter of minutes. On the road with Big Time Rush is Irish boy band One Direction, so parents should be warned to bring along some ear plugs. With two groups of young guys taking the stage for thousands of fans at the MGM Grand at Foxwoods tonight, it’s tough to tell which will be louder, the music or the screams from their fans.

Big Time Rush made the girls go wild [Music]

If you were in downtown Louisville this past Friday and were worried by the loud girly screams, fear not, it was just the very expected reaction to the Big Time Rush summer tour. For those of you non-rushers, Big Time Rush is a boy band formed in Los Angeles in 2009 after Nickelodeon signed them. They are also the stars of their own television show on Nickelodeon and the Big Time Movie, which was released in March 2012.

Big Time Rush came to Louisville on Friday, August 3 to perform for a huge crowd at the KFC Yum! Center. Opening for them were Rachel Crow, 14-year-old star from Colorado who got her big break from Disney after being eliminated from The X Factor in 2011; and, Cody Simpson, originally from Queensland, Australia who will be releasing his debut album, Paradise, this October. They definitely rocked the stage with their amazing fresh voices and dance moves, however, all the anticipation was for Kendall, James, Carlos and Logan—the members of the BTR band.

Fireworks, glow sticks and of course stage lights were just part of what brought the performance to shine. The crowd was wowed by the set and not to forget, the impressive flips that the members did off of the trampoline on stage!

Every pre-teen girl in Louisville seemed to be screaming, “oh my gosh, marry me” at the Yum! Center on Friday. And if not, she was hoping to win a ticket so she could do just that. The BTR boys broke hundreds of hearts but won four by each bringing a girl from the crowd on stage. They soon made up for it though by going into the crowd, which made the floor of the Yum! Center look like a giant mosh pit of little girls.

Among the many songs they sang were “Elevate”, “Invisible”, and “Windows Down” from their newest album. They also performed “No Idea” which caused much controversy when released as some accused the band of “stealing” the title and chorus from All Time Low’s song “No Idea”.

The crowd consisted of cute little girls all dressed up with poster board signs and lit up arrows, and parents with a much-needed drink in hand. One thing is sure; they all had an experience that will not be forgotten for years.

Here are some pictures from the concert [click here to view on the official Louisville.com website courtesy of Lucky Bunny Photography]:

Big Time Rush Caters to 'Two Separate Audiences' With Live Performance

The Nickelodeon pop sensation attempts to prove that they're not the average boy band, balancing their television characters and real-life personalities while on tour.

Despite the heat -- and with no air conditioning in their dressing room -- pop band Big Time Rush invaded the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater in Irvine, Calif., Thursday night with tons of energy -- and plenty of confetti to boot.

In light of the extreme temperatures, the boy band, comprised of Kendall Schmidt, Logan Henderson, Carlos Pena, Jr. and James Maslow, joked about taking their clothes off to a mostly female audience. As is to be expected, the crowd responded in kind with thousands of ear-shattering shrieks.

Most of the audience (an expecting Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green among them) was decked out in neon homemade shirts and carrying signs that read “Dibs on James” or “Marry Me, Logan,” as well as the obligatory "It's My Birthday!" proclaimations. But the fans, dubbed Rushers, were surprisingly not all teenagers.

“If you look at the crowd we’ve kind of got two separate audiences,” James told The Hollywood Reporter before the show. “We’ve got the young kids who pretty much watch the TV show and so they know us as the characters, and they still enjoy the music. But then you have a lot more now -- more and more growing -- of just the pop audience. 18 and up.”

Big Time Rush formed in 2009 as an extension of the Nickelodeon TV show of the same name. Now in its third season, the show airs new episodes Mondays at 8 pm.

“People don’t see us -- not every person -- but they don’t see us as real people. We’re these characters that come to their living room every single night at 8 o’clock,” Logan explained. “Then they see us in real life and they’re like, ‘wait a minute.’ We each have pieces of our characters in us, but we’re actual real people who have certain personalities and we like to do certain things and they start to realize that.”

Rachel Crow (of The X Factor) and another boy band called New Hollow served as the night’s opening acts, earning a respectable reaction from the audience, but all that paled in comparison to the deafening screams that would follow.

After New Hollow exited the stage, a massive timer appeared on screen in the center of the stage to count down until the band came on. On either side of the stage, tweets and pictures were posted from the fans.

When the band did come out (belting the title track of their second album, “Elevate”), the audience got their first look at the set. Comprised of poles the boys could slide down, ramps, platforms (one literally elevated the band into the air) and a trampoline in the center of it all, the set looked more like a massive jungle gym than a stage. BTR used every bit of the set in their performance, and even ventured out into the audience for their performance of “Halfway There.”

More screams erupted when the guys brought four girls up on stage with them to sing “Worldwide.” They tugged on some heartstrings when Carlos brought attention to a diehard fan who had been to dozens of their concerts -- too many to count, she confessed -- and had expressed on Twitter how she wanted them to call her up to the stage if they saw her. The band, who claims to read every single tweet directed at them (one even inspired the song “Invisible”), proved why they have such a loyal following.

Despite several slower paced songs (“Worldwide,” “Cover Girl”) the band kept their energy up throughout the entire show, which lasted just over an hour. Towards the end, the band also performed covers of the famous Beatles songs “Hold You Hand” and “Help,” set to images from the band’s film Big Time Movie. The highlight of the evening, though, was during the band’s latest song, “Window Down.” The audience -- if possible -- got even louder when the band lead the audience in the chorus.

The band bounced off stage -- literally -- before returning with their fourth costume change. Keeping the encore short, the boys belted out the show’s theme song, “Big Time,” leaving a big time impression amidst pyrotechnics and confetti.

Viacom To Relaunch Nickelodeon Turkey Back On Digiturk On 1st March 2012; Nickelodeon HD Turkey And Nick Jr. Channel Turkey To Launch Soon

From C21Media:
Viacom nets back on Digiturk

MTV and Nickelodeon [MTV Turkey and Nickelodeon Turkey] will relaunch on Turkish pay-TV platform Digiturk almost two years after going dark during a carriage dispute.

The new agreement covers six Viacom International Media Networks' (VIMN) channels over six years and begins with MTV, MTV Live and Nickelodeon rolling out on March 1.

Nickelodeon HD and Nick Jr will follow later and music net VH1, which was already carried on the Digiturk platform, is also part of the deal. Furthermore, the Turkish company will take on ad sales for MTV and Nick in the territory.

The deal comes after C21 reported MTV and Nickelodeon had ceased broadcasting on Digiturk in May 2010 following a dispute with local channel operator Multi Channel Developers (MCD).

Both sides took out lawsuits against the other, with MTV claiming MCD was refusing to pay for content for Nick and MTV and had breached agreement terms.

In return, MCD alleged VIMN (formerly MTV Networks International) had broken terms of their distribution agreement and got a temporary injunction that banned Viacom from distributing the channels direct to broadcast platforms.

C21 later revealed the pair had reached an out-of-court settlement to end the cases in the UK and Turkey and would cease their relationship in August 2011.

“We’re pleased to announce our new partnership with Digiturk for the distribution of our channels across Turkey,” said Antonio Campo Dall’Orto, VIMN’s executive VP for Southern Europe, the Middle East and Africa. MTV first broadcast in Turkey in 2006.

Former Nickelodeon UK Presenter Sy Thomas To Perform Stand-Up Comedy At Special Under 18s Comedy Night At New Wolsey Theatre In Ipswich

According to this news story on the official The East Anglian Daily Times website, stand-up comedian and former Nickelodeon UK and Ireland presenter Sy Thomas (The Crunch, ME:TV, Summer On Nickelodeon, Slime Across The UK And Ireland, Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards 2007 UK) has joined the line-up of comedians who will be putting on a special "Under 18 Comedy Night", which will be presented by The Duke's Headliners Comedy Club, on Saturday 3rd March 2012 at the New Wolsey Theatre in Ipswich:
Return of comedy for the under 18s

Making kids laugh is child’s play for The Duke’s Headliners, who return to the New Wolsey this week with more comedy for under 18s.

“The thing I’ve encountered with stand-up comedians is they’re all just big kids really; I think that’s why they can relate to them so easily and not patronise,” says the club’s Neil Grainger.

It’s not their first visit to the theatre, but this time they’re staging two events - one for eight to 12s, another for ages 12-plus.

“We do lots of adult gigs; we just feel kids shouldn’t miss out. Stand-up doesn’t necessarily have to be mother-in-law jokes or about rude things. Kids really respond to stories, tales and a bit of silliness - that’s what stand-up is.”

“A lot of it [the success of the New Wolsey gigs] is down to who we book. Getting the right comedians down for the right kind of audience. There are many comics who have two sets, their slightly bluer set for the adults and their kids’ set.”

It also helps, adds Neil, that comedy’s changed lately. Funny, sweet, observational comedians are taking the place of stand-ups who take the Mick out of their audience.

“So there’s a lot of comedians who have material which doesn’t alienate children; put Michael McIntyre in front of a ten-year-old and a 50-year-old and they’ll both laugh equally.”

The under-12 event is a great introduction to live stand-up.

The kids come alive and, says Neil, “it’s the only time where you actually think you really want people to heckle.

“It’s a nice feeling to watch kids at the under 18 event be in an environment where they’re trusted to have a bit of fun. There’s a naughty element to it as well, parents aren’t allowed in so the kids can kind of do what they want.”

The under-12 event, at 3.30pm, Saturday, March 3, will be emceed by Luisa M Omeilan, a comedy actress graduate and a semi-finalist at this year’s Laughing Horse New Act competition.

The 20-something newbie is already causing a stir on the UK comedy circuit, having performed at Banana Cabaret, The Comedy Store, The Vauxhall Tavern and The Cottage Redhill.

Presenter and comedian Sy Thomas has appeared in countless shows on Nickelodeon and CBBC and is a regular on the comedy circuit and Patrick Monahan, at the Felixstowe Spa next Friday, will complete the line-up.
