Toy Adoption Ads

Hasbro is Promoting Its Plush Toy Dog with the Battersea Dogs & Cats Home

— August 29, 2017 — Life-Stages
To promote its plush toy dog Chatty Charlie The Barkin’ Beagle, Hasbro teamed up with the Battersea Dogs & Cats Home for a unique campaign that also spotlights the importance of animal rescue centers.

Chatty Charlie The Barkin’ Beagle is a talking dog toy that boasts a special "collar [that] translates barks to phrases." In the ad from Hasbro, the chatty plush toy is taken into the care of Battersea, one of the UK's oldest and most well-known animal rescue centers.

As one of the newest additions to the FurReal Friends family, the ad shows Chatty Charlie The Barkin’ Beagle quickly finding his forever home, just like many other dogs that are adopted from animal shelters. As Battersea Dogs & Cats Home's Ali Taylor says: "This partnership is a great way to educate children and families alike on the importance of rehoming rescue dogs."
Trend Themes
1. Plush Toy Promotion - Collaborative marketing campaigns with NGOs and animal welfare groups can promote toys and raise awareness for animal welfare simultaneously.
2. Interactive Toy Innovation - Integrating technology into classic toys provides an opportunity for interactive and educational experiences for children.
3. Pet Rescue Advocacy - Marketing campaigns for pet toys can also help raise awareness of the importance of pet adoptions from animal shelters and rescue centers.
Industry Implications
1. Toy Manufacturing - Toy manufacturers can collaborate with animal welfare organizations to promote interactive toy lines with messages supporting pet adoption and animal welfare initiatives.
2. Pet Product Manufacturing - Pet product manufacturers can look into developing smart toys to provide interactive and educational experiences for owners and pets.
3. Animal Welfare Organizations - Animal welfare groups can collaborate with toy manufacturers on campaigns that promote pet adoption, responsible pet ownership, and raise funds and public visibility for their cause.
