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.
