Teletoon conducts four online contests
Specialty television channel Teletoon began four online contest promotions with various advertisers on Nov. 12. Ubisoft has begun a contest at Teletoon.com in support of its Petz line of video game. Visitors to the site can download one of two digital pets for their computers and enter a draw for a prize package consisting of a bedroom make-over, a collection of Petz games and a Nintendo DS video game system. Nintendo has begun a contest of its own at the site to promote its new video game Super Mario Galaxy. The winner will receive a gaming party for eight at a local movie theatre. One runner-up will receive a Nintendo Wii and a copy of the game. Hasbro is promoting its My Little Pony toy line with an online card-matching game. Visitors who win the game will be entered in a draw for a themed birthday party for 20 along with a collection of merchandise. Hasbro is also promoting a toy robotic dog called Mio Pup with a contest called "The Future of Friendship." Teletoon viewers who see an icon on the screen can go to the channel's website to play a game and enter a draw for one of 50 of the toys. Each contest will run until mid-December.
