Urban Play In The City

Excited for the Winter Season?
Thinking of what to do during this holidays?

For Autumn-Winter 2012, sports lifestyle brand PUMA takes PUMA Social out of the after-hours and into the everyday moments of joy. Enter the PUMA Social ‘Playmates’. PUMA believes that life is meant to be played and it’s during times when daily life becomes too mundane that Playmates are inspired to break out of the norm and transform the city into an urban playground.

Each Playmate brings a unique trait to the team. The Captain, the Kung Fu Dancer, The Food snapper and Dynamic Duo - It’s when they are together that the outing gets more fun. Without a doubt they've got the city all figured out with their favorite places to play. But surely there’s always something new to discover.

This season, PUMA created the ultimate Urban Play Kit and a series of pop-up challenges around the island to inspire Social Playmates to get more fun out of the city and discover more reasons to play.

PUMA Social Play Machine

The Play Machine is a Facebook app that aims to inspire people to play in the city. It generates a variety of everyday play tips and phrases that’s worth sharing with friends. It also creates a Play Team for the user based on their recent Facebook activities.

The user takes on the role of the Captain, the leader of the team. Once the user clicks ‘Play Now’, the app generates three Playmates from the user’s Facebook friends. Each Playmate is assigned a fun monicker or Playmate trait based on their social activities in Facebook with a suggested PUMA footwear, accessory or apparel fit for play. The user can also tag these Playmates so they can join the action and try the Play Machine themselves.

The user also has the option to ask Facebook friends if the suggested PUMA Play gear suits him.  By clicking ‘Ask My Friend’, a message with the product image will appear on his or her Facebook wall and friends can like or give their comments – initiating a fun, light-hearted conversation among friends.

PUMA Social Official Play Guide 

Introducing the PUMA Social Official Play Guide, it’s a fun and interactive mobile city guide that lets Playmates discover the places to play, eat and to have fun in the city, day or night. Playmates’ city know how will be put to the test as some never been uncovered play spots are also thrown in this urban map.
