The challenge

Help promote the latest range of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles toys to key online retailers whilst making the new iteration of the TV series and characters super cool and aspirational to its core audience of boys aged 6-9 in the UK, U.S., Canada, and Australia.

Nick JR - Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Phil Foden

The solution

tpf carefully planned an influencer marketing strategy with an original creative focusing on “Ninja Warrior”, a globally popular TV show, where contestants are faced with completing various obstacles in the shortest time possible.

We recruited a young super influencer called Tekkers Kid, whose core target audience is boys aged 6-9, to undertake a series of Ninja based challenges that best reflected the Turtle’s hero moves, alongside the world’s best free-runner Tim Shieff, and to give it extra buzz and PRability, we signed ‘teenage’ England football sensation Phil Foden, who is influential in both boys and parents’ lives!
