Why Your Should Use Promotional Slinkys In Marketing
Slinkys are a classic toy built for travel, and children can take these pieces anywhere with stairs to watch them do what they do best. A slinky is a toy that is able to “climb” down a flight of stairs on its own, and these have been a long-time favourite toy item for children for many generations. By placing branding on a traditional toy, such as a slinky, a brand will be able to market to the child audiences they want to please as well as their parents who remember their years of enjoyment with them in their childhoods.
When a child takes their slinky out to try it on a new set of stairs, the branding on the item will remain visible for all to notice. Other children, parents, and passers-by alike will be able to recognise the branding placed on the item, and this will allow a company a way to be seamlessly noticed while simultaneously enjoyed. The fun experience of the slinky will place the brand into a positive place in the audience’s mind, thereby creating an invaluably good impression.
Branded slinkys may be used by toy brands, children’s clothing manufacturers, and those in the hobby industry for appropriate marketing purposes.
How Do They Manufacture Promotional Slinkys
Slinkys may be made from many different inexpensive metal or plastic materials, and the shape, colour, or finish used on a slinky is up a brand’s decision. Slinkys can be manufactured to have a classic appeal, a flashy appeal, or a unique appeal, and the message a particular brand wishes to send to their recipients is what will determine which slinky is the most appropriate choice.
Circle slinkys are the most common shape chosen, and these have the traditional slinky look that many generations are accustomed to seeing. However, slinkys of other shapes, such as hearts, may be branded to add a bit of an extra attention grabbing element.
The branding area on a slinky is best seen when the product is not in use, and this will often take up the side area of the product. When a slinky is not in use, its shape resembles a long tube, and on the side of this tube is where a print area will be located to reserve optimal space for a design.
Whether a plastic or metal option is chosen, pad printing is used to place branding on these toys to allow images to stand out in bright colour.
Slinky Spring Case Study
During a local business community event, a children’s toy store handed out branded plastic slinkys to children and parents who visited their shop. These toys could be seen being carried all throughout the day, and more potential customers began bringing their children into the store for their slinkys after seeing them travelling with other recipients. The gift brought a great deal of new attention to the store, and this lead to these new customers shopping with the brand more often.
Slinky Manufacture & Branding
Slinkys are small, and both metal and plastic versions remain lightweight, allowing these products to be shipped or carried easily.
