“ToyMakerz” Television Show Launches New Digital Experience
“ToyMakerz” has partnered with Source Digital to launch a “ToyMakerz” companion app and website that connects fans to exclusive behind-the-scenes content, specs about builds and deals. Available now in the iTunes and Android stores, the “ToyMakerz” app enables fans to interact with the cast, score exclusive deals on anything they see on the screen while they are watching the show live, and share pictures of their own rides, along with a chance for viewers’ photos of their toys to appear on the show this season. With the sync feature, the app can be used simultaneously while watching the show, to recognize specific scenes or anytime when not in sync. Viewers can engage with brands and products they see on screen by pressing “sync,” or by looking in the “Meet the ToyMakerz” section.
