Inflatable Cartoon Replicas: How to Use Them to Increase Your Business

In our blog last week, we discussed the various industries IDG has worked with and the cartoon characters our skilled team has replicated into amazing, highly detailed custom inflatable replicas.  This week we are going to tell you ideas on how to use your inflatable cartoon replicas.  

Inflatable Cartoon Replicas to Promote Movie/TV Premieres

Custom inflatable cartoon replicas can be used for all types of events or activations.  They help build a personal connection between a viewer and their favorite cartoon character.  This is why inflatable cartoon replicas are often used to promote new tv shows, tv show seasons, and movies.

In 2020, AdultSwim, a popular TV network, picked up the show Tuca & Bertie after it was canceled by Netflix.  The show premiered on its new channel in June 2021.  To promote the popular adult cartoon and make sure everyone knew its new home, IDG brought the show’s two title characters to life in the form of giant custom inflatable cartoon replicas.  These inflatables were set up on a giant barge and pulled along the coast of Los Angeles and through New York harbor.

These custom inflatable replicas were a great way to grab the attention of those familiar with the show and those who had no idea what the show was.  The giant floating activation was seen by many people and posted all over social media, creating a buzz for the show’s premiere. 

IDG has also created inflatable cartoon replicas for the movie premieres of The Simpson Movie, Kung-Fu Panda 3, and more.  Like Tuca & Bertie, these custom inflatables helped build buzz for the movie premieres.

Pop-Ups Breathe Life into Cartoons

Ever wished you could visit a restaurant from a cartoon you watched or a video game you played?  The popular online game Fortnite has used inflatable cartoon replicas to bring many of their online restaurants off the screen and into real life. 

Recently, Fortnite partnered with basketball player Lebron James to bring the restaurant El Rey’s Taco Tuesday out of the game and into real life as a pop-up event.  This pop-up took place in Los Angeles for three days during July 2021.  To help enhance this pop-up experience, IDG created an inflatable cartoon replica of the restaurant’s taco mascot.

IDG has also created inflatable cartoon replicas of Fortnite’s other popular restaurants Durrr Burger and Pizza Pit.  Like the El Rey’s Taco inflatable, these cartoon replica inflatables helped bring the video game’s restaurants to life so fans could visit in the real world.
