Ducky is sad, because baby doesn't need to bath after every nappy change.

ivan is right, i think. replay this ad, i can find many details to demonstrate it. i don't think the idea is same to ikea, just the role of the lovely ducky is same.
i like it!

Without Ivan's explanation I would never get it (thx Ivan!). And now that I do, well, I don't give a Duck!

I like the idea. Unfortunately I don't think the execution gives it justice.

i had to watch it twice to get it, must be the fact that huggies is a diaper brand first and foremost. that blocked my brain to a certain wipes product (OH! it's a wipes ad!).

It's a nice spot! But people will feel too sorry for the duck - and won't care for the product. IKEA thought of that at their ending.

This would be in fact a really good ad for baby-soap or shampoo

Good point. I kept thinking "poor ducky" and wished the mother would give the dang kid a bath already. And what's with the knowing evil look the kid gives the duck at the end? Yeesh.

This spot may not be the most highly-creative, or potentially award-winning material; however, it's rooted in an untapped, consumer-relevant insight from moms (and caregivers): no need for tub-time if the wet wipes can get rid of dirties easily. I'm a mom, so it made sense to me.

I have two young girls. My girls must have their ducks in the tub when we bath them so I got it right away and it appealed to me.

The concept is fantastic, it just isn't executed as clearly as it needs to be. I love the idea of the ducky "missing" the child, I think that really taps into a great sort of reverse perspective (i.e. Pixar), but this is trying to say something else, to the product, and it gets a little lost. But great music!

I have two boys so I know a thing or two about changing diapers ... and seriously did not get this at first.

Who in the world normally give their child a bath (in a tub with a duck) every time they change the diaper? Or every time the child has eaten? Or got paint or dirt on their fingers?

Come on this is just far fetched. You can't use wipes as a substitute for bathing, and the places where wipes do come in handy, there wouldn't normally be baths with ducks anyways. So the idea is just flawed.
The execution isn't too good either, but the whole spot just dies flat on it's ass from the idea not working.

On TV the spot ends with the kid looking at the ducky and a vo saying "Till we meet again, little ducky"

That really helps the spots and makes it stronger.

How about the fact the kid in the first shot is NOT the same as the kid in the rest of the commercial...light brown hair, different face and chubbier...AND the hand shot looks like a different kid...could have used a baby with more energy and SOME type of expression it takes away from the commercial...i agree with teenie the kid looks evil not your All American Baby

Looks like the same kid throughout the spot to me.
