Eveready Torchlights & Batteries

Energizer Malaysia

In today's digital world, Eveready set out to do what conventional, obsolete batteries have never done: Bring Malaysian families with young children closer together.While overworked parents and busy children meant less bonding time, we realised that current forms of entertainment didn't reflect the heritage or traditions of what parents grew up with themselves.So what if we could tap into Malaysian parents' own nostalgia and childhood?

Eveready was inspired by the lost art of Wayang Kulit, the traditional Malaysian art of storytelling using shadow play.We created a shadow play bedtime storybook for children, 'Sang Kancil Cari Cahaya' (The Mouse-deer's Search for Light), featuring the iconic Malaysian folktale character: The Mousedeer. Children can even create new stories with the characters, so every night brings a new experience.That's how we created a new reason to buy Eveready torchlights, using light and shadow to light up a child's imagination, and bring families closer together.
