Tomy Sky partnership

With over 100 years of combined games experience, Tomy and Drumond Park have announced a brand new partnership with Sky to build on its success in the adult and family games category this Christmas.

The partnership sees a six-figure investment and includes a series of TV adverts across Sky channels, video on demand and digital campaigns via Sky Advance, reaching an estimated 19.7m viewers across the nation.

The animated adverts will run from 26th October to 21st December and will kick start with Drumond Park’s newest launch Sketchy, continuing with additional campaigns featuring Logo 2, Drumond Park’s number one adult game, Articulate and Rapidough, all featuring voiceovers by Harry and Jamie Redknapp.

Mary Wood, general manager UK and International at Tomy, commented: “Last year was a big year for the Drumond Park adult and family games. We secured the number one position in the adult games category and placed five out of the top 10 adult games with Articulate, The Logo Board Game, Articulate Phrases, Best of Christmas and Articulate Your Life. We’re delighted to be working with the Redknapps to continue to grow our brands and increase our fanbase across the nation. The partnership with Sky will offer us a fantastic platform to really help drive demand during the peak Christmas period across four of our hero games for 2020. Utilising a popular British family duo in partnership with our classic British board games fits so perfectly. The Redknapps bring their wit and charm to the advert like no other and we can’t wait to see people’s reactions to it.”

Tomy continues to invest significantly to support the Tomy and Drumond Park games through PR and digital channels, in line with consumer behaviour and trends, but will also look to ensure consumer reach at every touch point.
