FCB Chicago, Radio Flyer Introduce Travel Agency for Kids

By Erik Oster 

FCB Chicago launched a new campaign for childhood standard Radio Flyer, introducing “Radio Flyer Adventure Travel,” the first travel agency for kids.

The travel agency’s destinations, which include Mount Puppy and Octopus Shiny Treasure Bay are only accessible via imagination. “Radio Flyer Adventure Travel” clocks in at nearly two minutes and shows the travel agents helping kids pick out their desired destinations and equip them with the right Radio Flyer vehicle for their journey.

The spot concludes by asking viewers to join Radio Flyer for the event, which was held at 4755 N Lincoln Ave, Chicago on March 18. We’re guessing they may have filmed some footage for a subsequent spot there, and that more than a few kids went home with a shiny new Radio Flyer wagon. The campaign also includes a series of posters (visible on the walls of the travel agency in the spot), for the imaginary destinations. We wouldn’t mind heading to Flipping Pancakes Island for dinner.

FCB Chicago’s previous efforts for the brand also focused on its imagination-stoking qualities, such as the “Radio Flyer Super Race Car” spot celebrating the brand’s 100th anniversary last year.
