One of YouTube’s biggest stars is this year’s signature kids promotion for Carl Jr.’s and Hardee’s restaurants.
Ryan’s World, the most popular kids YouTube channel featuring Ryan Kaji and his family, is returning to the restaurant chains with new games and puzzles in the StarPals Kids Meals. This deal was made through the partnership of pocket.watch, the leading kids and family creator content company, and Sunlight Entertainment, the Kaji-family-owned production studio.
The StarPals Kids Meals will feature the beloved animated character Red Titan, who makes appearances on the YouTube channel as the superhero alter ego of Ryan. Red Titan stars in the Ryan’s World Titan Universe episodes and content specials distributed across 41 streaming platforms in more than 80 countries. This character has paved the way for many brands born on YouTube, with appearances on the cover of Kellogg’s cereal boxes and as the first Spanish-language character on Cameo Kids through the use of AI voice technology. Red Titan is also a holiday staple in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade as the first and only balloon based on a YouTube star. Last month, players chose to play as Red Titan mre than 200 million times in the TAG with Ryan mobile game that has more than 30 million downloads.
Available for a limited time through Aug. 8 at the more than 3,800 Carl Jr.’s and Hardee’s locations, the Ryan’s World Red Titan games and puzzles in StarPals Kids Meals include a bingo game set branded with all the Titan Universe characters and Happy Star branded tokens; a search-and-find game of discovery that includes stickers; a Titan scramble puzzle that turns into a colorful poster of Red Titan; and a competitive Titan race board game for interactive play with family and friends.
