CLEVELAND, Jan. 31, 2012 // PRNewswire // -- Beginning on February 13 – March 18, 2012 every Wendy's Kids' Meal® will include a Creativity for Kids® activity kit created exclusively for Wendy's®. Five fun activities are offered: 3D Drawing Activity Book that comes complete with a set of 3D glasses and crayon, Monster Lab Modeling Dough Set, Character Creator Set, Perfect Tracer Set and Fantasy Frame Set. The activities will provide the opportunity for Wendy's® customers to spend time with their children but are also age-appropriate for a child to create on their own. The promotion coincides with Creativity for Kids® 2012 new products launch at the 109th annual American International Toy Fair® February 12-15 in New York City.
These two Ohio based companies are known for being #1 in quality. When Dave Thomas opened the first Wendy's® in Columbus, Ohio in 1969, quality was so important that he put the phrase "Quality Is Our Recipe" right on the logo. Creativity for Kids® was co-founded in Cleveland, Ohio in 1976 based on the core values of quality and innovation.
"We are very excited about this first of its kind promotion for the Creativity for Kids brand," commented Jamie Gallagher, CEO of Faber-Castell USA. "We really could not have found a better brand than Wendy's with whom to partner. We think families across North America are going to love this promotion."
Wendy's® and Creativity for Kids® know that spending quality time together as a family is important. Wendy's Kids' Meals provide families with an opportunity to take a moment out of their busy lives to enjoy a meal and interact with each other. Research shows that family crafting is on the rise and Creativity for Kids® products enrich that time together.
In 1976 Phyllis Brody and Evelyn Greenwald, the founders of Creativity for Kids®, had a dream that their unique concept of enriching, open-ended creative activities would inspire children all around the world. They are proud to consistently provide award-winning quality experiences in all areas of business, particularly in developing innovative, high quality arts & crafts products for children. Today the Creativity for Kids® Brand has grown into a global manufacturing and distribution business reaching children in more than 35 countries. To learn more, visit creativityforkids.com.
