How do you ello?

Berry Sweet Launch

The goals of the "Berry Sweet Launch" campaign were to successfully launch the Strawberry Shortcake brand and become a key player in the doll and mini doll categories within the first three months of launch. Our goals were met and exceeded with a campaign that simply introduced "Strawberryland" as a relevant, fun place that let little girls be little girls without provocative teen "aspirational" messages used exhaustively by our competitors.

Bandai faced the challenge of introducing a confusing new hybrid toy -- based on the Gundam entertainment brand -- into the declining model kit category. By leaving the brand's underground appeal, the $1.2 million advertising campaign helped Gundam capture 29% of its market while handily beating Bandai's $20 million sales goal by several million dollars.
