About the Work

For 30 years, Lunchables has helped kids build their lunch, their way. But sales had flattened, and Lunchables needed to transform the way kids looked at the product.

We saw how much kids loved building with Lunchables and realized you could build almost anything with them—rockets, robots, Eiffel Towers—using just what’s in the pack. So we designed a range of edible builds and repositioned Lunchables as “The Toy You Can Eat.”

Then we partnered with New York City’s famous toy store, FAO Schwarz, to bring our builds into the toy aisle. We filled its legendary Fifth Avenue windows with larger-than-life pizza UFOs, cracker rockets and pretzel horses, using a mix of 3D constructions and printed backdrops.

We worked with FAO’s in-house creative director and a fabricating company to create massive crackers, cheese and ham pieces that kids could walk around and get their picture with. And inside the store, our giant Lunchables train became the centerpiece.

Also inside, we put our actual food builds on display, just like real toys. Kids could see them up close, take home blueprints or scan the QR code on the box to pull up instructions for each build (color-coded for each product line).

It was FAO’s biggest partnership ever, earning coverage from TODAY, DesignTAXI, Fox News and other media outlets. We handed out 2,500 sets of blueprints and launched premium Lunchabuilds kits on FAO’s site (which sold out in two minutes).

And Lunchables experienced an unprecedented double-digit sales increase for the first time in five years.
