  •  Fisher-Price 

CEUyA65WoAAwXGBFisher-Price has  introduced the new parenting awards "festival," The Mommys created by 360i for Mother's Day. The global social campaign rolling out in 15 countries invites Facebook users to celebrate accomplished moms by "virtually" rewarding them with one of six toy-like trophies -- including an airplane with a spoon for a nose ("Super-Sonic Spoon Feeder") and a toilet on a cake ("Potty Independence").Each is based on a familiar stepping stone of early childhood. Users bestow an award on friends by sharing it on Facebook with the hashtag #TheMommys. "The Mommys" are part of the brand's "Best Possible Start" platform centered around early childhood and the idea that kids' best starts begin with Mom and Dad. The awards, launched last week and running through Mother's Day, already have had a side effect of nurturing meaningful dialogue between parents on the Fisher-Price timeline. One of the challenges of the campaign for both client and agency has been staying tuned into the fanbase of 2.9 million Facebook users.
