Prioritising the importance of play.
The LEGO Group has released a global brand campaign celebrating the power of play and the creativity of its fans in the lead up to its 90th Anniversary on August 10.
Four years after the launch of “Rebuild the World, the company’s latest effort will highlight playful inspiration, activities and collaborations after new Lego research reports that play is fundamental to wellbeing and happiness for the whole family.
The campaign invites fans to come together and prioritize play for nine weeks this summer in the company’s first full takeover of LEGO.com, social media, e-commerce channels, stores and LEGOLAND parks with the LEGO Foundation and LEGO House’s support.
The campaign’s hero film celebrates the impact that playful building and creation has made on the world in the last nine decades. The new ‘We Are All Builders’ film starts and ends with children and their boundless imaginations and optimism reimagining the world around them with LEGO bricks as they rebuild it into a friendlier, more inclusive and more playful place than before.
Julia Goldin, chief product and marketing officer, the LEGO Group, said: “Play has always been the cornerstone of humanity. It’s not only fun, but it’s crucial to helping children develop essential life skills, strengthening family bonds and building communities. But with competing pressures on the lives of parents and children, play is often deprioritised.
“To mark our 90th Anniversary this summer, we’re launching our largest ever celebration of play to inspire people around the world to play more; whatever their age, location or interests. We’re delighted to be joined by a host of the world’s most creative brands and personalities that are just as passionate as we are about play and reminding the world how easy, fun and beneficial it can be.”
The fully integrated global campaign will run across a variety of channels including TV, digital, out of home, cinema (UK), e-commerce channels and in the retail stores in over 25 countries. It will also be supported by a series of local activations and playful events in markets where the LEGO Group has a presence.
