The campaign was strategically launched to capitalise on the appeal of Quby characters, integrating them into everyday consumer products. This approach was aimed at generating excitement and engagement among shoppers, thereby boosting brand visibility and loyalty. 

The choice to use Quby characters was pivotal. Designed to be adorable and visually appealing, these characters resonated well with the target demographic, enhancing the attractiveness of the merchandise. The versatility of the Quby design also meant that it could be seamlessly adapted across different Unilever brands, maintaining a cohesive promotional narrative.

By utilising a uniform character across various products and brands, Unilever was able to maintain a consistent thematic presence in trade outlets, making their campaigns more memorable.
