TMNT are Coming to Life at Walmart!
And we couldn’t be MORE excited. Growing up, I was a bit of a tomboy. There wasn’t a day that I wouldn’t wake up early or rush home after school to watch the Turtles on TV. I was always a Michelangelo fan and in my youth, “Cowabunga, Dude, Radical, Bodacious and The Max” was part of my every day vocabulary.
In fact, I still love them now and I am happy that my girls share my love for them.
Starting August 9th, Walmart Canada will offer its customers an exclusive free Turtles app game that allows them to bring the Turtles to life on their mobile phones through Augmented Reality.
Get Your Game On!
You can download the Swappz Augmented Reality game on the Apple App Store or Google Play, available in both English and French. You can head over to Walmart stores in Canada from August 9th to August 22nd and you’ll find special Turtles signage throughout the store. The Exclusive App will provide a map for kids to follow on a treasure hunt throughout the store to find the Turtles signs, which will be placed on Turtles product displays in the Toy, Apparel, and Electronics sections.
How exciting is that?
By scanning the signs with their smart mobile devices (iOs or Android), the Turtles will “come to life” through Augmented Reality onto the customers’ smart phones and perform a variety of ninja moves. Man, how I wish we had this interaction when we were kids, I would have been all over it and luckily, I can now share that with my girls, so–I AM ALL OVER IT! Don’t tell the kids!
Have Fun and Unlock!
You can unlock each of the 4 Turtles heroes, Donatello, Michelangelo, Leonardo, and Raphael. Your kids will be able to play a fun Turtles trivia game to prove just how big of a fan of the Turtles that they are. Customers can also scan the image on the August 9th Walmart flyer to bring each of the Turtles to life through A/R onto the flyer page. So, if you have it laying around, go and scan it!
One lucky Whispered Inspirations reader will win a $50 Walmart Gift Card to go out and get their own TMNT swag! This contest is open to CANADA ONLY and starts today on August 15th, 2013 until August 30th, 2013!
