Opportunity
Audio branding for a new generation of Parennials.

The Story

What could have been.Together with Lippincott, we imagined a new Toys"R"Us brand. Targeting "Parennials", we used sound to capture nostalgia and reinvent the aesthetic for a modern audience.Toys"R"Us Today We Play.

Toy Factory

The whirring and pitter-pattering of toys being manufactured is actually created with mouth clicks and pops and mallet percussion.

Racecar

Driven by pocket-sized servo motor sounds, this animation evolves into roars of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Mobile

For parents of younger children out there, we created a Mobile soundscape that is more "rock" than "Rock-A-Bye Baby" for Babies"R"Us.

"TRU" To Life

The audio branding blends true-to-life found sound with larger-than-life sound design. Here, dreams meet reality.
