Power Rangers Kick Off Halloween Safety Campaign

Beginning this month, Saban Brands is launching a multi-platform national Halloween safety campaign featuring the Samurai Power Rangers and designed to reach parents and children at schools, in theaters, online, and at home.

Videos about Halloween safety featuring the cast from Power Rangers Samurai will air in movie theaters nationwide before PG- and G-rated films. Some of the tips include do not eat unwrapped candy, take a glow stick or flashlight along while trick-or-treating, never go trick-or-treating alone, stay in groups or with a parent, and more. Special bulletin board posters reinforcing safety guidelines will be distributed to more than 5,000 elementary schools across the country.

Additionally, the powerrangers.com/Halloween webpage will feature more Halloween safety tips, videos, activities, games, and resources. The Power Rangers will also be reaching parents and kids through parenting blogs, entertainment websites, and gaming portals.
