Faber-Castell Malaysia launched its ‘Back to School’ campaign this year with the focus on nurturing the creativity and imagination of children. The company believes that this will in turn, stimulate the brain development of young children.
According to Mr Andrew Woon, Managing Director of A.W Faber-Castell Malaysia Sdn Bhd, choosing the right stationery products is an important contributing factor to the brain development of young children. “A good stationery set will enhance their learning experience and also improve their fine motor skills. Tri-Grip pencils and Grasp Crayon for example, were invented with practicality and grip comfort in mind so that children would love using them and this will also pique their learning interest,” said Woon.
Bearing the quality and the R&D tenacity of a German brand, Faber-Castell products are designed and developed after years of research, resulting in ergonomic designs. With its products, Faber-Castell aims to offer creative experiences that will delight and inspire customers.
This year’s Back to School campaign themed Castle Heroes, features a male character named Bernard and a female character named Cassandra. Both these Castle Heroes characters will inspire children to use their imagination in conquering obstacles and challenges.
Four inspirational Castle Heroes sets are introduced in conjunction with the Back to School launch. They include an essential school set containing complete stationery items that one would need, a drawing set coupled with a set of creative drawing cards, a mechanical pencil set and a 3-piece eraser set.
Apart from the Castle Heroes sets, Faber-Castell Malaysia is also introducing several Back to School sets, promotional sets and gift sets which are ideal as gift for the holidays. Among them are also new innovative products such as the ‘Colour to Life’ Augmented Reality Colouring Book with Connector Pens; My Colour Companion First Grasp Crayons coupled with a colouring book – designed especially for toddlers aged three to four years old; and also an attractive Colour Design Tri-Writing triangular pencils which is perfect for writing and drawing.
‘Colour to Life’ is Faber-Castell Malaysia’s latest digital application to bring colouring and drawing to the next level. The set comes with a colouring book, a set of coloured connector pens and an app that makes the characters in the book come to life with colours. This Augmented Reality colouring book is the first of its kind by a stationery company.
The Back to School launch event also saw the participation of 24 children, aged 4 to 16 from the Trinity Community Children’s Home. The home is also sponsored with a year’s supply of stationery items by Faber-Castell Malaysia as part of their corporate social responsibility programme.
The public can also look forward to several activities, which will inculcate creativity in conjunction with this year’s Back to School campaign such as the ‘Spot, Snap and Win’ contest as well as on-ground colouring activities and creative Tack-It workshops at selected mall locations nationwide.
