Playmobil Breakfast Takeover idents will run in every morning commercial break on these channels from October through to Christmas, showcasing the brand’s Christmas range.

The breakfast takeover was designed and brokered by the head of AV at Havas Entertainment, Matt Smith, who added: “Gaining competitive standout in a market which has declined 21% year on year is a constant challenge for toys and games advertisers.”
