"As an innovative publisher of children's content, we consider it our mission to help facilitate kids' creativity and ignite their imaginations," says Susan Katz, President and Publisher, HarperCollins Children's Books. "We see working with HONEY MAID on MADE CO. as an excellent opportunity to introduce kids to creative book-making with our author, Dan Gutman, of the popular My Weird School book series."
"Miniclip itself began when our founders dreamed up an idea for a simple, yet entertaining game," says Eric Wachs of Miniclip America, Inc. "The rapid growth of our company is testament to the fact that when combined with the right support, creativity and passion can result in fun, entertaining games enjoyed by everyone. We're excited to encourage creativity amongst kids through MADE CO."
Developed by Droga5 New York, the launch of the MADE CO. initiative also coincides with a series of television commercials created by the agency for the brand's newest snack, HONEY MAID GRAHAMFULS Filled Crackers. In keeping with the ethos of the initiative to encourage kids to create, the national advertising campaign features real kids rather than child actors bringing their ideas to life with the help of the HONEY MAID team. One television spot made using stop-motion animation was concepted and developed by an 11-year old filmmaker and another spot features a 14-year old fashion designer who created a dress line inspired by HONEY MAID GRAHAMFULS flavors. Both spots highlight the fact that with the right support, kids can make almost anything.
HONEY MAID is as dedicated to childhood innovation as it is to innovation within its own product line. In addition to HONEY MAID GRAHAMFULS, the brand has recently expanded its range to include HONEY MAID ANGRY BIRDS TM Honey Grahams and HONEY MAID LIL' SQUARES.
