FCB Brasil Unveils Nivea Doll to Teach Kids About Sun Block Protection

By Kiran Aditham Comment

In an effort to enlighten kids who normally couldn’t care less about wearing sunscreen while running around on the beaches of Rio de Janeiro, Nivea–with the help of FCB Brasil–decided to use the little ones’ moms and a couple of cute dolls to raise awareness. With the Nivea Doll, brand and agency essentially turn kids (ages 3 and up) into caretakers thanks to a UV-sensitive product that essentially gets sunburned.

Regarding the Nivea Doll effort (which is a follow-up to the Cannes Mobile Grand Prix-winning “Protection” ad that also promotes the Nivea Sun Kids line), FCB Brasil creative vp Joanna Monteiro says:

“Protecting and caring is something we learn from an early age. This emotional bond is what this NIVEA action offers. Through the magic of technology, children can see the sun’s effect on the skin of the doll.”

No word yet if the sunscreen-friendly dolls will be mass-marketed, but perhaps we’ll just have to wait for the next phase of the campaign to find out.
