We had been “malls-hopping” this holiday season! The best time of the year for shopping at the malls is Christmas season!
The shopping malls are decked with their Christmas best and there are galore of free shows, characters Meet and Greet and goodies to redeem with minimum spends.
City Square Mall is no stranger to bringing in well known characters, catering specially to the kids!
This school holiday, City Square Mall brought in my boys’ favourite cartoon characters: Dora & Boots, Paw Patrol, Blaze the Monster Machines (at the outdoor playground area) and Bubble Guppies!
No prizes for guessing what is their favourite cartoon channel! NICK JR!
They can shout “Abre” in Spanish, name every single Paw Patrollers, identify that Blaze had a recent makeover in transformation and chant “Outside outside, everybody outside!” with the Bubble Guppies!
If you don’t know what I am talking about, no worries – I didn’t know better as well when we subscribed to Nick Jr..
And if you have a big fan of Nick Jr. characters at home, don’t miss out this “all stars” live show and Meet & Greet sessions at City Square Mall. You can redeem a Meet & Greet pass with $50 spend in the mall.
For a minimum spend of $40 at the mall, you can also redeem a Wonderland Pass to participate at the various stations at the City Green Outdoor Park’s playland. These are very simple games such as bubble blowing at the Bubble Guppies station, a mini playground at Blaze, photo taking at Paw Patrol, catching falling balls at Team Umizoomi and dress-up at Shimmer and Shine.
And a quick note that the playground at the outdoor area had been revamped. It is even better than before with an old-school “turnstile” merry-go-round.
One BIG IMPORTANT TIP: Go on weekdays if you can. We were there on a Sunday afternoon and it was really crowded; with a long queue at the redemption counters and a crowd almost everywhere. Evenings might be better if you want to play outdoors too – to avoid the heat (if any).
There is a daily snowfall playtime at the Outdoor Park if you are there at 8pm and 9pm as well. So evenings are ideal.
|If you don’t want your photos to be blocked (like mine); either be early and chope a seat in the middle. Or head upstairs to level 2 and 3 to sit at those common areas – it will be better views than at the sides. We were lazy to move.|
|Xi En loved to take photos with mascots any time. Eizac isn’t in the picture because he is scared of mascots who are larger than the cartoons he know so well! hahaha|

Enjoy Nick Jr little fans!
