Digital advertising and marketing: only the best ideas worldwide, since 2003

Ferrero and the kids’ online paradise

July 25, 2005 at 2:27 by Martina Comments

Pubblicità Italia reports Kinder and Ferrero snacks brands have launched an advertainment website targeting 4 to 12 years old kids. The site is called Animotosi and is built around the ideas of fun and movement. Advergames, e-cards, personalised cartoons create an attractive environment for young web surfers.

The only thing I don’t really like is that there is also a mobile goodies section, where kids can download ringtones and logos. Even though I understand in Italy we have very young boys and girls owning a mobile phone, I’m not sure it’s very ethical to offer them such kind of content. Let’s be honest, 99 percent of the times kids don’t need a mobile phone, so why should we make them desire something completely unnecessary? Am I too radical in my views?

  1. Nice game, but I think 4-6 years old children are young for this games.
