Skywriter inks deal with new kids restaurant tablet


Canada’s Skywriter Media and Entertainment has signed a non-exclusive deal with Las Vegas-based kids and family-focused restaurant marketing company Family Hospitality Group to provide kids content for its SPUDnik 1 tablet and kids entertainment system for restaurants.

The tablet, which is available in English for the North American market and attaches to restaurant tables by a retractable cable that simultaneously charges the device, features age-appropriate eBooks, tutorials, art simulators, syndicated cartoon episodes, and games.

It also features a pre-loaded proprietary operating system and customers can use their iPhone or Android mobile phone devices to access a link on the company’s patented crayon packages that unlocks additional content.

Family Hospitality Group is currently in negotiations with Denny’s restaurants and several other foodservice chains.
