Super smooth kids’ porridge Ready Brek and Walker Books’ popular children’s brand We’re Going on a Bear Hunt are embarking on a joint adventure from now until July.
The two brands will come together to serve up a nutritious helping of outdoor fun in a bid to help parents and kids adopt a healthy, balanced lifestyle. Ready Brek will be inviting kids and families to create their own bear hunt featuring fun activity ideas to try at home on their packs. The promotion will be supported by a heavyweight social media campaign reaching up to 3m consumers with a media value of £250k.
The free We’re Going on a Bear Hunt guide, inspired by the hit Channel 4 animated film produced by Lupus Films, will appear on more than 1.8m Ready Brek packs. Featuring artwork from the film, each guide suggests games and activities showing kids how to go on their own bear hunt. Packs also include three recipes to collect; Bear Hunt Banana Muffins, Protein-packed Bear Hunt Bites and Bear Hunt Blueberry and Apple Flapjacks.
