Independent media agency Nunn Media has been appointed, after a competitive pitch, by global children's entertainment company Spin Master and its portfolio of brands in Australia, including Bakugan, PAW Patrol, Hatchimals, Kinetic Sand and Air Hogs.
Nunn will manage integrated strategy, planning and buying across all media channels for Spin Master Australia’s more than 25 brands as part of a multi-year engagement.

Chris Walton, managing director at Nunn Media: “Spin Master creates and manages some of the world’s most popular children’s entertainment properties, I mean who doesn’t love Ryder, Chase, Everest and Rocky from PAW Patrol??!
"Starting in November, we’ll work closely with the team to amplify all of the Spin Master portfolio in Australia.”
Geoff Oliver, marketing director of Spin Master ANZ: “We have ambitious plans to continue growing our business in Australia and creating exceptional play experiences for children with our range of toys, entertainment franchises and digital games.
