Sentosa Playcation

Media Invite

Seems like we parents need to look too far for activities to occupy our kids this year-end school holidays because there are many interesting events happening on Sentosa! The Sentosa Playcation, which will take place from now till 30 December 2012, has a series of fun events lined up for both the young and old. There are art & craft sessions, life-sized Playmobil experience on Palawan Beach and lots of photo-taking opportunities at the Merlion Plaza, etc.

We were invited to check out the Playmobil Bazaar at Palawan Beach last weekend, and it was the first time we came face-to-face with life-sized Playmobil characters!

I thought Baby Jayne looked like 'her', and so a photo was a must. Now, if only Jayne wore orange that day. =P

Lots of knights, canons and pirates everywhere! The whole place was nicely set up, and I thought it was nice seeing the usually small Playmobil characters standing so big in front of me. That could have been the kid in me talking.

This castle immediately attracted the kids when we arrived, and before I knew it, they were no where to be found.

Then, I realised there was a playground beyond the facade of the castle! And of course, the kids were there. Nice to have a knight guarding the slide.... No?

Then the kids were finally pulled away from the playground because the games were starting!

The kids were told to put on masks and go around searching for 'treasures' hidden all over the place.

They were not looking for this box of 'treasure' apparently. =P

The girls didn't manage to find any treasures, so they retreated to the stations where Playmobil toys were set up for the kids to play with. It was the first time my girls played with Playmobil - It was definitely a good introduction to them.

 

The figurines were very cute and made in great detail. Very amazing.

Just before we left, we met a super friendly pirate! :)

After visiting Palawan Beach, you might want to check out The Merlion Plaza where there's a Christmas tree made out of transparent capsules with playmobil characters inside each of them.

Have fun checking out Sentosa Playcation! Thanks, Sentosa, for the invite!
