Until the 6th of November, shoppers at Esselunga in Italy could collect, build, and create their own Disney Village, co-created by Esselunga, BrandLoyalty and Disney artists.
The campaign’s range consisted of 22 Disney and 6 Esselunga miniatures, all made from 100% FSC cardboard. Shoppers could choose to buy a playing field that included the map of Disney Village, the game ‘Esplora città’, translated as ‘Explore the City’, and 2 limited edition buildable cards. Shoppers could also purchase a backpack depicting “Topolino e i suoi Amici”.
Before the start of the campaign, readers of Topolino comic magazine had a sneak peek of the upcoming program and could get their hands on a first miniature! Excitement for the campaign grew further when a unique comic was published in the magazine. Disney created a special story that was inspired by the village itself. Esselunga even brought excitement to their stores by tapping into the power of Disney, as in-store events took place for 5 weekends across 25 stores. During the in-store events, kids could experience the DisneyVillage in real life, as the miniatures were enlarged, and kids could make coloring pages in a DisneyVillage-themed setting.
The DisneyVillage flatpack also included 1 voucher, ‘Amici di Scuola’ for shoppers to participate in Esselunga’s community program. Over the past 7 years, 104 million of euros have been donated through this community campaign where schools can redeem hardware and software devices and teaching materials. The DisneyVillage campaign contributes to reaching new heights when it comes to social commitment!
