Graham Saltmarsh, director of Cartoon Network Enterprises for Northern Europe made the following statement about the Ben 10 Alien Party Tour:

“Ben 10 is one of the most successful boy’s properties of all time and bringing it to life through our Alien Party Tour is a great way for fans to get stuck in and experience it for themselves. We know that activities like this, which engage fans of the show in a fun and meaningful way, result not only in a uplift in retail footfall and consumer product sales, but also a feel-good factor that provides fans with a deeper, long-term connection to our brand.”

Smyths Toys was also one of the three national retailers (along with Tesco and Toys R Us) that helped organise Cartoon Network’s Ben 10 Truck Tour last July, where a specially custom-made trailer based on The Rustbucket RV motorhome visited several locations across the UK to help promote the then newly launched Ben 10 toy range which included a toy based on Ben Tennyson’s Omnitrix and roleplay items and action figures based on the aliens of the Omnitrix.
