Moonpig has released a pastel pink-hued ad that sees the return of its cute piglet mascots.

The campaign was primed to launch on September 10, but had to be partially paused due to the death of Queen Elizabeth II.

It will run fully from today (September 26) across TV and radio.

Developed by Creature London, the spot sees the nosey animals sniff their way through various boxes that contain Lego, balloons and mugs to try and find the perfect present.

It comes at a disruptive time for the online gifting brand, which has been impacted by ongoing Royal Mail strikes in the UK and has warned customers to order early to avoid delivery delays. Two more days of action are scheduled for the campaign’s launch week, on September 30 and October 1.

The brand introduced its sweet mascots last year and claims they have helped push sales to £304m – an increase of 76% compared to 2020.
