Packaging idea

Parents like to enjoy eating together with their children. But with so many phones around the table, it’s harder than ever. How do we start paying attention to each other again? And how do you get a good dinner table conversation going? We transformed the good old custard carton into a modern conversation starter.

The leading idea became: Vlablabla (vla being Dutch for custard). We came up with an editorial concept headed up by Professor Vladimir with lots of jokes, games and puzzles. This increases the time taken for dessert at the table, and makes the experience more fun.



Together with children from the target group, an editorial board is compiled for Vlablabla. The kids help determine the topics, check whether the jokes are actually funny, and test the games. This is no childish undertaking: there are six different cartons, each with their own on-pack magazine. Every four months, the magazine content of all cartons is renewed.

From the very first cartons, the sales effect of Vlablabla was clearly apparent. This led to expansion of the concept to the entire dessert range. Under the moniker ‘DessertChat’, all other Campina dessert cartons were successfully restyled.


One of the favourites appears to be the character Vladimir. With each new release, Vladimir undergoes a metamorphosis and in doing so adjusts to the new theme.
