Robertís Opinion on the Business Potential of TJ&Pals:
"TJ & Pals is a wonderful new brand for kids. It is fun, the most important consideration for
successful introduction of a new way for kids to play. It is interactive, online and designed to
be an exciting, expanding series of apps for play, learning, teaching and exploitation of the
brand into a major cash machine. Kids will easily relate to TJ and friends and will have fun
while subliminally benefiting from the wonderful format that has been developed. Parents
and teachers will love the medium as a way to reach and interact with children in a warm, safe,
friendly and fun way to play and learn.
Once TJ is well established online, on iPads and mobile phones and TV it will grow exponentially
into a major kids brand with enormous commercial rights flowing naturally from the
brand. Unlike the new wave of internet sites that generate great traffic but don't have a
business model that lends itself to generating large revenues, TJ has built in many direct money
making by-products, such as toys, games, e-books, videos, movies, franchised "learn as you
play" centers, theme parks and other products. Even though I am not an expert on ESL, using TJ & Pals to
teach English internationally to young children has a huge and profitable potential.
As a former toy company executive it seems to me to be a homerun as a new brand."
