Stumbled upon this quirky little promotion for Disneyland Paris to celebrate the arrival of the New Generation in the French theme park. Choose either the Incredibles or Toy Story characters and then allow the Facebook connect application access your profile, and the characters interact before your eyes.

Just need to learn French now!

Phonebook has a new meaning.

Problem

In Japan, internet ad spending of the Internet had grown larger than that of newspaper for the first time in 2009. The introduction of the iPhone, Kindle and iPad frightened the publishing industry. If this went on, paper could become worthless in future? Phonebook’s mission was to find or develop new communication value of Print media.

Solution

They focused on the fun of “turning the pages” which is the unique value of print media. Next, they focused on “picture books” for kids and combined the idea with iPhone. That is “PhoneBook”.

Using PhoneBook requires both a children’s book and parent’s iPhone. Children sit on the parents’ laps to flip its pages and the texture of papers as well as actions or music of digital devices. Kindle or iPad will never be able to follow this only with their digital attributes.

Facts

・PhoneBook’s demo movie has been played more than 200,000 times on the Internet.
・Over 100,000 people visited the PhoneBook WEB site since its opened.
・Over 3000 tweet about PhoneBook can be seen on Twitter.
