Confused.com welcomes two new Herbert toys to the family

Leading price comparison site celebrates new toy launch with sponsorship of ITV’s popular show Ninja Warrior UK

Posted on 18 Dec 2015

Confused.com is now offering its loyal customers the chance to choose between two new free toys, Miss Herbert and Stunt Herbert, when they take out selected products through the leading price comparison site.

Following the overwhelming success of its free BRIAN the Robot toy - which launched in February - Confused.com took the decision to not only expand its collectable family of toys, but to give customers even more opportunities to claim them.

Customers who take out car, home, life, van, motorbike or pet insurance or a credit card through Confused.com from December 30th 2015 can choose between one of the three collectable toys: BRIAN, Miss Herbert and Stunt Herbert.

The Herberts were first seen coming to the aid of BRIAN when he was captured by metal scrapyard dealers last Christmas and have been by BRIAN’s side ever since. And due to popular demand Confused.com have now launched two new toys, Miss Herbert and Stunt Herbert.

The new pull-and-go toys are designed to encapsulate the characters’ personalities. Miss Herbert is sweet, sparkly and as hard as nails. Her toy comes with a set of stickers and an activity wheel that helps you decide what games to play with her. Stunt Herbert is the hardest, most daring and most reckless of the Herberts, and his bobble-headed toy comes with a fun target game.

To support the launch of the two Herberts toys, Confused.com have unveiled a new 30” advert, in which Stunt Herbert and Miss Herbert’s sibling rivalry is revealed as they compete to show off their toys.

In addition to the advert, the Herberts are proudly sponsoring the second series of ITV’s popular show Ninja Warrior UK. The show starts in January and features contestants trying to battle their way through one of the world’s toughest obstacle courses in the hope of being crowned the ultimate Ninja Warrior.

Each episode will feature a series of different idents starring Miss Herbert and Stunt Herbert as their sibling rivalry boils over. These idents range from five to 15 seconds in length and feature Miss and Stunt attempting to outdo each other as they try to capture the audience’s attention.

To further support the toy launch, Confused.com are bringing social media to the fore in their new fully-integrated advertising campaign. Consumers will be able to get involved and pick a team: Team Miss, Team Stunt or Team BRIAN via Confused.com’s social channels.

The toys have been developed in partnership with ATOM Marketing, a leading promotional marketing agency

Fiona Creedon, Head of Advertising at Confused.com, said:

“Since the launch of our BRIAN the robot toy we’ve seen his popularity soar and felt it was time to expand his family. The Herberts were introduced last Christmas and since then we’ve seen people’s affections grow for these loveable robots.

“We are delighted to celebrate the launch of our new Herbert toys with the sponsorship of Ninja Warrior UK. It’s the perfect way for our customers to get to know Stunt Herbert and Miss Herbert and see their rivalry unfold. Are you #TeamStunt or #TeamMiss?
