The Campaign

To respond positively to this real need for families, Renault in partnership with Chicco, the largest baby brand in all of Europe, developed "The Dream Cradle": a base, on which to place the cradle, that mimics the movement of the car enabling parents to lull the baby at home, without having to leave the house and drive, especially at night. The Dream Cradle is activated through an App that allows to adjust intensity, direction and slope.


The inspiration came from a commercial posted on the Renault Argentina FB page where a couple was planning a cradle that replicated the movement of a car at home. After watching this, several parents enquired whether the cradle could be produced for real. That’s when Renault looked for a partner, specialized in baby products, to work on a product that could satisfy the desire of many parents. The Dream Cradle was revealed on 10 March 2017, during the Six Nations Press Conference in Rome, with Renault as the Italian Rugby Team Official Sponsor. Soon after the news spread to the web, magazines, newspapers and TV news. The content video was posted on YT and social media; a landing page was developed for info and preorder of the product: Three weeks later, during Milan Design Week, the Dream Cradle was shown in the Nhow Hotel alongside the Renault Range Test-Drive.

Over 270 press clippings (press, online, radio, tv), equal to 2.400.000 € of free media space. Total views video «The Dream Cradle»: 1.700.000 Reach: 5.600.000 (Youtube, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) Interactions: 10.700 Rugby match Italy vs France: 60.000 people watched the video content aired during the halftime Test Drive Activity: Lead: 1.000 People Reached: 100.000 Test Drive: 2.500

The Situation

Renault with its customer promise ''Easy Life" wants to build not just ideas for a better life inside the car but also outside. Because Renault believes that cars are still able to make our life easier. Especially for a target that's particularly relevant for the brand: young families. Born from a consumer demand the Dream Cradle is a product developed to make lives of families everywhere easier. Consumers, journalists and bloggers were affected by the message and spread it further in social media and media coverage.

The Strategy

Renault with its customer promise ''Easy Life" wants to build not just ideas for a better life inside the car but also outside. Furthermore, Renault has always been a brand with a strong sport vocation and has recently become sponsor of the Italian National Rugby Team. With The Dream Cradle, Renault with the expertise of Chicco gave concreteness to its brand promise using the Rugby sponsorship to amplify the message. The Italian rugby team player George Biagi, who recently became father and often struggled to put her daughter to sleep, was chosen as testimonial.All these factors supported the PR activity, which was thought to hit different media target: sport, childhood, female and male, lifestyle, tech and automotive magazines. Different contents were exploited depending on the media, in order to get a large and diversified coverage.
