Shaun the Sheep expands digital offering with Funwisher collaboration
Aardman has teamed up with funwisher.com, a unique wish-fulfillment platform, which offers personalised wishes from sports stars, actors, influencers, musicians and now animated characters! From today, fans can order completely customised wishes from Shaun the Sheep online at https://shaun.video.
The 5 minute episodes, which are set on the farm, will be sent to the lucky recipient to enjoy again and again with fun and laughter guaranteed. All that users will need to create their bespoke videos are some photos of the lucky birthday person along with providing basic information about them: their name, age, interests and Shaun will come up with a script and, together with his friends, they will develop a unique video greeting. The clip will be ready within 24 or is available in 1 hour if you choose the quick turnaround option.
Rachael Peacock, Senior Brand Manager at Aardman said: “We’re delighted to be working with Funwisher to offer our fans something truly unique with their very own personalised Shaun the Sheep episode. What a baa-rilliant birthday gift!”
Initially, it will be birthday messaging available for personalisation, but in the coming months fans will be able to have Shaun and his flock deliver bespoke videos for every occasion: name day, Children’s Day, exams, end of the school year and the holidays.
Through this innovative platform, not only will consumers receive an exclusive gift but there is also the added benefit of supporting a charity that Aardman support at the same time. A percentage of sales from each video will go to one of the following charities; The Grand Appeal, The Children`s Sleep Charity or Brake the Road Safety Charity, and can be selected by the consumer on purchase.
Custom wishes from Shaun the Sheep will launch in English-speaking territories around the world from Friday 21st August. Polish and German language versions will also be available soon.
