eOne announces partnership for PJ Masks

Published on: 3rd March 2017

The property will become a brand ambassador for the Youth Sport Trust.

pjmasks480Entertainment One has announced a new partnership with Youth Sport Trust (YST) that will see its popular animated TV property, PJ Masks, become a brand ambassador for YST’s work with young children in the UK.

eOne will collaborate with YST on a PJ Masks branded initiative that will introduce an early years day to the charity’s popular annual National School Sport Week, which will be rolled out to over 9000 schools and early learning venues across the UK from 26th – 30th June 2017.

The initiative, entitled Power of 3 to reflect the trio of PJ Masks heroes, aims to encourage young people to be more active and take part in regular physical activity and school sport. Power of 3 will specifically target young children between the ages of 2-5, in primary schools, and pre-school settings such as nurseries, who will be encouraged to take part in 30 minutes of daily activity, as recommended by the UK Chief Medical Officers in 2016.

During National School Sport Week in June, every primary school or nursery setting that registers will get free access to the PJ Masks Power of three activity pack full of branded activities inspired by the strengths of the three main characters: Catboy, Owlette and Gekko, a superhero trio of friends who embark on action-packed adventures using their superpowers of agility, strength and flight.

Rebecca Harvey, head of global marketing at eOne Family, commented: “The partnership with Youth Sport Trust is a great fit for PJ Masks, as kids love replicating the athletic abilities of Catboy, Owlette and Gekko in the show. We’re pleased that this appeal can be channelled to positive effect during National School Sport Week, and we look forward to working together to make Power of 3 an inspiration for young children throughout the UK.”
