POKKA x POP MART Sweet Bean Festive Collaboration

Brand: POKKA  


In a strategic and creative partnership, Pokka collaborated with POP Mart to amplify its Chinese New Year campaign in early 2024, engaging DTC World to bring a beloved licensed character directly into the promotional mix. This collaboration, leveraging the festive allure of the Sweet Bean character, not only charmed Pokka's customers but significantly heightened brand visibility during one of the busiest retail seasons. 

The Pokka x POP Mart collaboration was the centerpiece of Pokka’s Chinese New Year promotional campaign. Utilising the widely adored Sweet Bean character from POP Mart, the campaign aimed to offer unique and memorable festive promotional merchandise. These gifts were available through a special redemption offer, targeted at major supermarkets, retailers, and roadshow events.
