"Beginning in June, parents will have a new opportunity to invite the popular Sesame Street characters into their homes and to the dining table," said Steve Jungmann, Solo Cup Company senior vice president of consumer sales and marketing. "With the Sesame Street product line, we have created a partnership between two trusted brands that will enhance mealtime for parents and their children by encouraging learning and increasing parent/child interaction."
To celebrate the launch of the Sesame Street product line, parents can go to a dedicated web site where they will have an opportunity to learn more about the product line while their children can take part in a fun, downloadable activity starting June 1, 2008. Beginning this fall, parents will be able to call a toll-free number printed on the packaging to hear a special message from Elmo.
