Friday Fragments January 9th
I was visiting Mommay's Mayhem blog today when I happened upon Friday Fragments, what a…
No …. it’s WAT-AAH! A completely different thing, right? Well yes and no. To the kids, yes. To me, no.
The day of my two sons birthday party had arrived and the cases of WAT-AAH! were ready in the cooler with lots of ice to make sure the children and adults at the party were replenished during this hot Summer day. The sun shined down hard on this past Saturday when we hosted a birthday party for the boys. It made all of us sweat and grab for more and more water, but the thing is, WAT-AAH! being the only option in our cooler was not taken by the kids very well … at first.
Aj and K-man both, almost in unison were like “oh man” when I showed them where they could find drinks for their friends and their own self. I laughed, because I know my boys love WAT-AAH! but given a choice obviously they are children and would much prefer a sugary drink. I firmly believe that the label on the WAT-AAH! is what gets the kids interested and not to mention the way to spell it. While I am not 100% sure how it was meant to be pronounced, WAT-AAH! sounds really appealing to young children when you say it in an “argh matey” type of pirate voice. That is how I was able to get the kids to drink up their WAT-AAH!
WAT-AAH! became a fun conversational piece because of their label design and the way I pronounced it with my best pirate voice, the kids also pronounce WAT-AAH! in that tone so it was a way to intrigue their friends to take a bottle or two while in attendance at the birthday party. I felt a little like a marketing girl, promoting WAT-AAH! because most parents were asking me about “WAT-AAH! is” and checking out the label. I had a great time promoting this brand during the birthday party because I am convinced it’s worthy of my time to promote. While WAT-AAH! did send me their product for free, and I did disclose that to the party guests, I firmly believe that more parents may start looking for this on our local stores shelves. I know of one local convenience center that sells WAT-AAH! and I was super excited to see it there. I let the parents know where I had seen this locally and to check it out. It’s such a great way to encourage water drinking with the kiddos!
You can find the locations near you that sell WAT-AAH! so that your kids can feel STRONGAAH today on the WAT-AAH! website. Also be sure to connect with WAT-AAH! on Twitter and Facebook to keep up to date with their latest fun & news.
