Egg farm company Sunny Queen has launched Australia’s first augmented reality collectible cards for families.

Sunny Queen Farms has launched a new limited edition collectible range of augmented reality cards using the latest in animation technology.

The collection features a range of child-friendly egg characters in limited edition egg boxes, with each card having the capability to come to life on a customer’s smartphone.

While the technology itself is not new, it is the first time augmented reality has been used for consumer goods in Australia, which is why Sunny Queen said it is expecting its unique range of cards to become the next big thing.

“We wanted to do something special,” Sunny Queen general manager of marketing and innovation, Julie Proctor, said. “We have gone to great lengths to ensure these are no ordinary collectible cards. The characters literally come to life through specialised animation techniques which will make collecting these cards and eating eggs particularly fun for families in Australia.”

“Certainly we think kids will have fun trying to collect the whole series and we hope this will spark a new trading trend across schools in Australia,” Proctor said. “Together with the augmented reality cards we will also release a very rare Gold series which we anticipate will be very valuable to the serious collector.”

The collectibles idea is a natural extension for the brand’s original range of stickers, which Sunny Queen ran 45 years ago.

“Yes, there are still people that have the original collections and follow the characters to this day,” Proctor said. “The series was revolutionary then, and we hope this new launch will be equally special for the community.”

The cards will be available from Coles and Woolworths supermarkets in May for a limited time only.
