Innovation Means Going Old School


Throwback. And not just on Thursdays. Remember 3D glasses and decoder lenses? Recently, Kidzsmart introduced these nostalgic elements to our Toronto Blue Jays and Boston Pizza programs. Parents and kids loved them—we even won a coveted Parent Tested Parent Approved (PTPA™) Seal of Approval for our Boston Pizza 3D program.

As part of the PTPA™ review process, many parents responded to them with delight and enthusiasm:

One parent recounts: “In fact, one of my kids even ate dinner with the 3D glasses on, saying it makes the food even better. Gotta love kids and honesty, this same child said ‘blue food is just better, looks like lollipops.’”

Our Boston Pizza 3D Program has won rave reviews from parents and kids alike.

Our Boston Pizza 3D Program has won rave reviews from parents and kids alike.

With their 3D glasses, kids (and adults!) saw pictures, games, and even their own drawings pop off the page. In our decoder issues, our custom, Boston Pizza-branded red lens decoder allowed kids to uncover hidden surprises, solve puzzles, and reveal clues. Another issue of books featured collectible holographic trading cards showing the Boston Pizza All-Star characters in “action”.

For parents and kids alike, these timeless offerings are often a refreshing change from digital play. They’re also a fantastic value-add that shows your family patrons just how much you appreciate them.

Kidzsmart can help you elevate your kids’ program and build anticipation, visit after visit. With over 15 years’ experience, our programs offer the best of what you and your family market will love. Impress your family market, whether with modern interactivity or classic innovations from the past!
