This year, toys-for-girls startup GoldieBlox won a rather expensive prize: a $4 million commercial during the Super Bowl.
Thanks to Intuit, their 30-second ad reached millions of viewers and helped raise GoldieBlox’s profile. The GoldieBlox line of toys can now be found in stores nationwide, including Toys ‘R’ Us.
GoldieBlox VP of sales Lindsey Shepard joined us on Saturday at our SXSW Startup Celebration sponsored by .CO and CEA. She talked about their goal of “disrupting the pink aisle” for girls’ toys, and what it was like to get a Super Bowl commercial. Here’s the video.
