Brand 1: Playmobil• Playmobil (pronounced play-mo-beel) is a line of toys produced by the Brandstätter Group (Geobra Brandstätter GmbH & Co KG), headquartered in Zirndorf, Germany• New products and product lines developed by a 50-strong development team are frequently introduced by Brandstätter. Some of these, such as promotional products, are only produced in limited quantities• There exists a sizable community of collectors for Playmobil. Collector activities extend beyond collecting and free-form play with Playmobil and include customization, miniature wargaming, and creation of photo stories and stop motion films.• Adult Playmobil people are approximately 3 inches tall and are a 1:22.5 scale
Market Communication• As Playmobil happens to be a Toy manufacturer, the advertisements shown are very vibrant and appealing to kids• The product is main focus of the advertisements and kids are shown highly engrossed in the toys• Lego and Playmobil together are coming up with a Convention event in Kleve, Germany in Dec 2011• Although, Playmobil does not have a celebrity endorser, Hans Beck their inventor sometimes plays a role in endorsements• Playmobil in association with Growing Tree toys have come up with a contest for teachers of grades K through 3, currently working at an accredited elementary school in the U.S., to develop an imaginative lesson plan around a specific Playmobil product theme
Tactical v/s Long Term Brand Building• Playmobil has made use of occasions in the short run• An example would be increase in promotional spend on Army toys during time period of American Independence day• Also, they are in practice to come up with promotional products as well. Example: Limited Edition airplane sets sold aboard flights and in duty-free shops• Over, long term it comes across as toys which help in building imaginative power of children and a fruitful play time as well
Brand Extensions• As a part of Brand Extensions, Playmobil is venturing into Amusement Parks• After opening in Florida and New Jersey, they are planning to open in Greece, France and Germany
Suggestions for India launch• Toy manufacturers like Fisher Price and Lego have already established a firm foothold in India• It may get difficult for Playmobil to compete solely on superior quality as the others offer the same• Playmobil must thus, stick to its image of a child development toy company and launch in India• In the ever burgeoning middle-class households and increasing attention to child development, a product like Playmobil is sure to succeed
Brand 2: Cascade Dishwashing• In 1953, Cascade entered the automatic dishwashing market with claims of “spotless dishes” to the 4% of households with dishwashers.• This fast-moving world of household innovations was just in its beginning stages, and Cascade stayed at the forefront for the next 50 years by developing a range of automatic dishwashing products perfect for families, needs, and lifestyles.• Today, with decades of experience and dishwashers in more than 60% of households, Cascade continues to grow, striving for immaculate dishes every time with its brilliant automatic dishwashing powders, gels, tabs, and additives.

Brand Extensions• As a dishwashing solution, Cascade started off with Cascade Powder then eventually ventured into gels and finally into tablets
Brand Prism Analysis• Physique: Dish Cleaner• Personality: Strong Cleaner on delicate dishes and cutlery• Culture: Dynamic• Self-Image: Cool and Smart• Reflection: Reliable cleaner• Relationship: Trusted with all kinds of dishes
Suggestions for India launch• Cascade is into Dishwashing solutions primararily for Dishwashers• Before venturing into Indian markets it must understand the Indian consumer’s take on dishwashers• In India, average households employ maids to do dishes rather than purchase a dishwasher• Add to it the water cuts in major parts of the country makes the situation even worse• Thus, to make an entry in Indian markets it is essential for Cascade to understand these risks and develop a solution for niche market or go for masses with handwash of dishes as a product
Brand 3: Klondike• Klondike is a brand name for a dessert generally consisting of a vanilla ice cream square coated with a thin layer of chocolate-flavored coating.• The first recorded advertisement for the Klondike was on February 5, 1922 in the Youngstown Vindicator.• They are generally wrapped with a silver-colored wrapper, upon which the mascot for the brand, a polar bear, appears.• In the UK, the generic name for this type of dessert is choc ice.
Market Communication• Klondike is positioned as a desirous brand• All the advertisements (Print/TV) make use of the tagline “What would you do for a Klondike bar?” in them• The product advertisements portray the desired target audience as young males in age group 25+• Unlike many similar frozen treats, the Klondike bar does not have a stick, a point often touted in advertising
Tactical v/s Long Term Brand Building• The tagline of Klondike bar has remain unchanged over the years• It has been quizzing consumers on the extent till which they are ready to go for a Klondike bar• Klondike has made use of this concept in many promotional activities wherein it runs a contest to come up with innovative ideas to achieve a Klondike bar• In the Long Term, it has kept al its communication confined to this concept has been doing quite well
Brand Extensions• Originally, Klondike was available in six Flavours – Vanilla – Strawberry – Chocolate – Grape – Maple and – Cherry• Later, it came with may new flavours like Rice coating on bars, Caramel, Mint chocolate etc• Many Ice-cream bars were also introduced in the name of Klondike such as – Minis Snack Size Vanilla Ice Cream Bars – Slim-a-Bear Premium Fudge Bar – CarbSmart Ice Cream Bars – CarbSmart Fudge Bars

Then logo without the mascot was created to stress more on name. Since it targets kids, an improvement in form of more colorful logo was introduced. The reverse "R“ imitates a small childs backward writing of "R", which is short for "are". The "R" is the most distinctive part of the retailers colorful kid-friendly logo. Letter R is reversed to increase recognition n registration the stores
Changes in Brand Identity Prism: Reflection• Customers see Toys R Us as specialty retail outlet for kids having games and toys for children of all ages.• However later the store started keeping other products like nappies, electronic games, apparel for kids, food products, movies, music books, puzzles, outdoor games, etc• This enabled it to grow from a mere toy store to a store which fulfills all the requirements of children of all ages.• Also to compete with Wal-Mart, Toys R us had started offering discounts. Eventually it ended up offering discounts on every occasion. This led to its image dilution from a specialty retail store to a discount store. The company has realized this and reduced the frequency of its discount offers.
Changes in Brand Identity Prism: Personality• Geoffrey the Giraffe conveys the brands personality.• As we see In the 1960s, an anthromorphic giraffe cartoon character was introduced as mascot.• In 1973, Geoffrey was given a family with the addition of his wife Gigi.

To that effect, 90 "Holiday Express" stores across the United States and Canada were opened .These are much smaller than regular Toys "R" Us locations, often located in malls, and offer a more limited selection of merchandise than would be available at a normal sized standalone Toys "R" Us store. The original plan was to keep the Holiday Express stores open until early January 2010 and close them shortly thereafter, but the success of many of them prompted the company to reconsider and several were kept open.• Kids "R" Us : A store chain no longer operating independently as of 2003, Kids "R" Us sold childrens clothing. Kids "R" Us stores now are co-branded with some Toys "R" Us stores, located inside most Toys "R" Us locations. Kids "R" Us is also the brand name label of kids clothing found at the Geoffrey Stores.
TOYS R US: India Launch• The company can open a spacious store like its Times Square store to provide an experience to kids. At a location like Phoenix mills in Mumbai• Also it must promote itself through print ads, on cartoon channels and tie- up with schools and kinder garden.• The market and preference in India is quite different. It is not possible for parents to take their kids for shopping toys and games after travelling long distance. So Toys R Us Express Stores, which are the Mom n Pop stores should be opened up more and extensively to targets different pockets throughout the country while restricting Toys R Us spacious stores to Metros areas.• Other Videos for reference:• http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VJJ-ZLdrTwY• http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fxw_ioDUN0Y&feature=related• http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zLkHxpVFm0k&feature=related• http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E9fAjGR5y_k&feature=related
