Bedtime is the only time of day when parents and children are really spend time together. We have turn this precious moment into a magical moment.
We invent a new discovery medium, an accessible, fun and innovative way to tell stories to children: THE MAGIC WALLPAPER, the first wallpaper that gives access to innumerable adventures.
"Casto c’est castoche", "Chez Casto, il y a tout ce qu’il faut" : selling lines that all the French quote spontaneously. This shows the attachment they have for the brand and the place that it has in their hearts. Because Castorama is not just a DIY brand but a source of inspiration for improving everyone's daily life, the brand has complete legitimacy to offer innovative products.
The creation of THE MAGIC WALLPAPER is part of an interview with a psycho-educator, Sole?ne Bourque, that evoked the very active development of children's imagination between 2 and 6 years, notably through the stories we tell them. We first worked on 5 character designs in order to attract as many children as possible.
The Artistic Directors and the illustrators have called on specialists in drawing for children to adapt their work to the specificities of early childhood. The writing of the stories was done with the help of children's writers. They were tested directly with the children at school. The stories were read by the mistresses. They were then optimized according to the reactions observed.
The application was also thought for children: its design, animations and user experience were worked to be the most child compliant. The design of the application is based on the standards of child imagery: simplicity, clarity, animation. Whatever page you are on, the child can follow the navigation with his father or mother. Each action or functionality has been thought out for the attention of the child to be captured and his or her imagination to be stimulated.
