With over 2000+ hours of content, 8000+ videos and 125+ characters, Voot Kids has the largest digital repository of premium kid’s content, since the platform’s launch a year ago.

We all know that parents often have their kids come along with them while they go about their regular activities like shopping, socializing, doctor appointments and even at times office work. Kids find themselves stuck in an adult world that is boring and devoid of fun & excitement. This is where VOOT Kids comes in. VOOT Kids understands this predicament and empowers both kids and parents by becoming the kids best friend, transporting them into an entertaining and imaginary world brimming with excitement and delight. This is the world of their favourite characters and wonderful stories.
This above message is delivered through a very creative and engaging film that will captivate and catch the attention of both parents and kids.

Commenting on continued focus on understanding kids and their needs, Akash Banerjee, Head – Marketing & Partnerships, Viacom18 Digital Ventures, said, “Kids live in a universe of their own – their toys, favourite toons, games/activities with their friends, their possessions, etc. make up a large part of the world they relate to. The concept of #NoMoreAtakoing is fundamentally rooted in the compulsions of nuclear families and the resulting situations where kids find themselves in dull and un-relatable situations – here is where Voot Kids swoops in to save the day and makes them smile. We’ve delivered this message through an anthem and several relatable situations. Our endeavour at VOOT Kids is to ensure that fun, entertainment and development continues uninterrupted for kids through engaging characters and immersive storytelling. The campaign is set to make Voot Kids’ every child’s best friend, always & forever.”
The music video depicts the everyday stories of kids stuck in awkward situations in the adult world. A young boy yawning behind his father in a hair salon, another awesomely bored boy stuck in a saree shop with his mom, then there’s this girl who finds herself out of place in her sister’s pre-engagement function. Many such stories showcase how Voot Kids can be your child’s best friend by presenting to them their favorite cartoons anytime anywhere. The campaign will witness a high decibel 360 degrees marketing outreach that will include home as well as cross channel promotions, digital platforms and innovative social media outreach (for the parents) and amplification initiatives. The campaign with its emotional connect and category relevance is sure to start high decibel conversations around VOOT Kids.
Speaking about the creative process and relevance behind the campaign, Ayyappan Raj, EVP-Mullen Lintas “Voot is one of the leading brands in the Digital Video space and we are very proud to be associated with it. The brief for this particular campaign for VOOT Kids was based on a simple but powerful insight of ‘kids being stuck in an adult world’ and we really enjoyed coming up with this creative solve for this message. We made the entire product pitch as a charming appeal from the kids to the adults. That’s what “No more Atakoing, Latakoing” is all about, a jolly anthem of kids being stuck in different situations and Voot Kids coming to rescue. “
Speaking about the thought behind the campaign Garima Khandelwal, ECD-Mullen Lintas said, “Kids being lost in their own creative & wonderful world is anyday more fun than them trapped in ours, was the starting point of this brand film from Voot Kids. We used a simple mnemonic of a rotating chair to tie together all the normal and everyday places for adults, but boring places for kids to be in. We are confident of the campaign cutting through very effectively to both parents and the kids.”
