Have you ever wondered how the name Big Bad Wolf originated? The co-founders had an interesting story to share.
“Our main target market is children,” “We wanted a character that would appeal to them. A character that is classic. We realized that most of the people in our generation knew the Big Bad Wolf from the story Little Red Riding Hood. However, a lot of younger children didn’t know the character. So we wanted to introduce it to them. Also, I feel like we always remember the villains or bad characters of a story more than the heroes.”
said Andrew Yap, co-founder of Big Bad Wolf.
“We also did not have any budgets for advertising and promotions,” “So, we decided to use a cheeky name that would also be memorable. We wanted something that captivated the kids’ hearts and to be honest, I think we have succeeded to a large extent.”
added Jacqueline Ng, co-founder of Big Bad Wolf.
Founded in Malaysia in 2009, the Big Bad Wolf has toured 34 cities in 13 countries around the world.
