Nelvana Enterprises’ popular characters Max & Ruby and The Berenstain Bears will be heading to luxury resorts across the Caribbean and Central America this year.
In a new partnership with Memories Resorts and Royalton Luxury Resorts, Nelvana will be offering live character experiences and themed amenities based on the two brands.
Max and Ruby will be on hand to entertain children with a host of live experiences and interactive activities at Royalton Luxury Resorts in Dominican Republic, Jamaica and Mexico.
Meanwhile, The Berenstain Bears are making appearances appearances at Memories Resorts in Cuba, Dominican Republic and Bahamas.
“We are thrilled that our beloved characters will add an extra layer of fun for families during their memory making holidays,” said Andrew Kerr, co-head, Nelvana Enterprises.
“These resorts are an excellent space for kids to connect with characters that they love.”
The costumed characters will make appearances for breakfast sittings, storytelling sessions and kids’ dance parties. Families will also be offered the opportunity to view the animated TV episodes and purchase merchandise on site.
Janine Chapman, vice president of marketing for the resorts, added: “It is heart warming to see the emotional connection that children and parents alike have when seeing these popular characters that have become a part of their household.
“This is a great addition to our tremendous children’s programme which includes a state of the art supervised kids club and free use of our on site water park or splash pad facilities.”
