    Celebrity Connected Helps Small Brands Network At Event Celebrating The Kids' Choice Awards®

    Jubilation hung in the air at the 2014 Celebrity Connected gifting suite Celebrating The Kids’ Choice Awards®. The amazing whirligigs, toys, and foodstuffs on display, in addition to the consistently stellar line-up of stars, made this the place to be leading up to the KCA. Overall, this celebration had a more youthful vibe compared to their other events and it showed through the roster of talent from Disney and Nickelodeon dominated the day. Although there were still some older stars among the youth, this was for the kids.

    The brands on hand were electric! Hex-Bug’s robotic bugs and goldfish were a hit, but unsurprisingly they weren’t the only robots in attendance. Rolling Robots also offered up their educational toys for the crowd to experiment with, much to the delight of stars like Jack Griffo, who was nominated for favorite TV actor at this year’s Kids’ Choice Awards® for his role on the hit show The Thundermans. There were also toys of the non-electronic variety as Safari LTD brought the jungle to the SLS Hotel with their wide selection of rubber animal figurines. Their life-like nature made them a very popular item, which, at one point, actress, stuntwoman, and martial artist Caitlin Dechelle balanced several at once while in an impressive Sagiashi-dachi stance.

    The celebrities kept rolling down the red carpet as the day continued. Hollywood icon Eric Roberts took a special interest in Ocean’s Halo, a brand of seaweed chips. Roberts noted the positive elements of seaweed, a food he’s incorporated into his own diet for its healthy properties, and how the innovative approach to the snack-food could benefit people from all walks of life. Soulja Boy stopped by the impressive display from Stuffies, which featured an entire neon lit wall of their stuffed animals, also doubling as carriers. Not far away, the Sharbino sisters fawned over the beautiful dresses from Deux Par Deux and their classy take on young girls’ attire. At every turn, celebrities interacted with products now getting the adoration they deserved.

    The entertainment didn’t stop there. As always DJ Danny kept the mood upbeat, personalities like Pandora Vanderpump and Sheana Marie learned about the benefits of organic products from #MPWR Skincare. Comedy legend Penny Marshall was stunned by the elegance of Katice’s Boutique, while America’s favorite boy band Midnight Red perused the creative, sports themed wallet options from Zumer Sports. When it was all said and done, over one hundred and fifty celebrities came through the Celebrity Connected gifting suite, networking with a multitude of companies from every industry imaginable. Although considered an event for the kids, every person in the crowd benefited from the exciting, entrepreneurial ambiance exclusive to these gifting suites. Once again proving that attending a Celebrity Connected event is an invaluable experience.
