Created in-house by Sky Digital Media, the playroom-themed microsite will be hosted on the main www.babycentre.co.uk website.

The microsite provides information on the benefits of play in early childhood development including embedded links to the official Lego Duplo website.

The partnership will also incorporate a competition celebrating Lego’s 40th birthday, dedicated product and where to buy pages, plus a unique branded member forum.

The five figure deal brokered by Sky Digital Media with media agency Carat, will initially run from June 15th to August 15th, followed by a second campaign from September 15th to December 15th, featuring a dedicated Lego Duplo branded interactive flash microsite.
