A few weeks ago eBay introduced their a new mobile app with ‘The Inspiration Shop’, an interactive window shopping experience curated by artist and interior designer Jonathan Adler. Passersby could scan the QR codes associated with each of the displayed items to be directed to the eBay mobile listing where the items could be purchased.
The same mobile app is being used by eBay to power the ‘Give-A-Toy‘ Holiday campaign for Toys for Tots. Interactive store windows in New York and San Francisco feature a lively environment of animated toy trains, teddy bears, robots and more. Visitors can interact with the display, changing it from dark to night or making it snow and ultimately make their donation by scanning the QR codes displayed on the screen.
For the people not in New York or San Francisco who would like to donate, they can visit ebay.com/giveatoystore to make their donation.
EBay’s Facebook fans can personalize one of the toys from the interactive window and share with their friends. For every completed toy, eBay will donate $1 to Toys for Tots (up to $50,000) and a chance to enter a sweepstakes to win a $1000 shopping spree on eBay.
