HOLLYWOOD, Calif., Sept. 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Just under a year after becoming Agency of Record for Mattel Games, managing national promotions, product placement, marketing partnerships and strategic alliances, Allied Integrated Marketing has announced a lineup of national promotional partnerships with food and beverage industry leaders for Mattel Games.

Partners include Arby's, the second largest quick-service sandwich chain in the U.S.; STOUFFER'S®, the well-loved Nestle brand best known for creating quality frozen meals for families since 1954; Tyson Foods, one of the world's largest processors and marketers of chicken, beef and pork as well as prepared foods; Post Alpha-Bits, the classic alphabet cereal enjoyed by generations of children for over half-a-century; #1-selling refrigerated pizza MaMa Rosa's; Langers, producing quality juices for over five decades, and Pik-Nik Shoestring Potatoes, an all-American snack which has been a consumer favorite for 75 years.

Mattel's games portfolio – encompassing family, women, kids and tech innovations – includes such household names as UNO, Magic 8 Ball, Rock'Em Sock'Em Robots, Whac-A-Mole and Othello to new brands including Apples to Apples, Mad Gab, Imaginiff and Loopz.

"Our strategy was to secure promotional programs to ensure an ongoing, year-round marketplace presence for Mattel Games through mass media, on-pack, retail, print, radio and social media efforts," stated Erin Corbett, Senior Vice President, Strategic Marketing & Branded Entertainment, Allied Integrated Marketing.

She continued: "At the same time, we focused on clever regional marketplace approaches by teaming with partners who share similar personalities with Mattel Games."

In the latter category, partners include Edible Arrangements, which offers a fresh fruit bouquet for every occasion, and frozen dessert chain Tasti D-Lite.

"These alliances speak volumes about how Mattel's family of best-selling brands is truly a fit with consumers of all ages and interests. We look forward to announcing additional promotional programs for Mattel Games with leading national brands in the very near future, as well as product placement deals," Erin Corbett added.
