DreamLand Toy Store Launches Online Store with AR

Chris Cameron November 18, 2013

DreamLand, Belgium’s largest Toy Store and part of Colruyt Group, is helping to promote the launch of its online webshop with a cross-media brand activation campaign across Belgium.

The multi-faceted campaign also included a TV commercial, a flyer, a pair of websites and more! The work was even two-fold due to Belgium’s two main languages - French and Flemish. A brochure in both languages featured Layar’s interactive print technology to bridge the gaps between the print and digital elements of the campaign.

The cover of the brochure, which reaches 4 million households across Belgium, comes to life with an excellent example of AR video. Readers can scan the cover to watch the boy (and some of his toys) come to life and share his wish list with Sinterklaas (the version of Santa Claus celebrated in Belgium as well as the Netherlands and Luxembourg).

The video grabs readers’ attention and directs them to a campaign landing page where kids can interact with Sinterklaas, asking and receiving video responses to their questions. Parents can also order a personalized letter from Sinterklaas himself to surprise their kids.

“We believe AR still has a strong ‘magical touch/appeal’ by bringing visuals, characters and text to life,” said Fred Goffin of Colruyt Group. “From a customer journey perspective, AR brings print closer to the digital ‘gate’ which was a key objective of the campaign.”

Visit DreamLand’s pages (one in Flemish, and the other in French) to learn more about this terrific cross media campaign with Layar.

Layar 7.2.2 - Interactive Print in Your Language

Chris Cameron April 2, 2013

It’s no secret that interactive print is exploding across the globe.

From real estate agencies in Australia, to big brands and publishers in Canada and the United States, to the biggest publications in France and the Netherlands, and even a boom in downloads of the Layar App in Saudi Arabia – Layar is a truly worldwide company. We’ve even taken it upon ourselves to make sure content is distributed across dozens of servers worldwide for greater speed.

As the international market for interactive print emerges, it’s time for us to take the next step in providing the best possible user experience to as many people as possible. Available today for iOS and Android, version 7.2.2 of the Layar App  includes support for the following languages:

Combined with English, these languages make up a large portion of Layar users around the globe, but this just the beginning. To provide the best experience to more users, we will add more languages based on usage and demand over time.

The inclusion of native language support within the Layar App makes it easier for publishers to create seamless and engaging experiences for their readers. Publishers could already tailor their interactive print content into the language of their choice, and now the Layar App itself follows suit to provide an immersive experience in a user’s native language. It’s simply a better all-around experience for users.

Want your language supported in the Layar App? Let us know in the comments section which one we should do next!
