Get Ready To Travel Around The World On A Hot Air Balloon With Kiztopia Friends At This Year’s Gardens by the Bay Children’s Festival
Up, up and away! This June school holidays, kids and their families are set to be blown away as eight specially-designed giant inflatables, measuring up to 12.5metres tall, take centrestage at Gardens by the Bay. Brought to you by Gardens by the Bay, in partnership with Kiztopia, Singapore’s leading mega-indoor kids’ edutainment playground centre, and featuring Kiztopia Friends, this larger-than-life inflatables installation is part of this year’s Children’s Festival, which runs from 28 May to 19 June at the Supertree Grove.
As travel opens up and we can, once again, see the world, this timely installation brings the world to our hood, without the need to board a plane! Each inflatable features the iconic landmarks of the different countries, such as Mount Fuji in Japan, the Sydney Opera House in Australia and Gardens by the Bay in Singapore. Two of the inflatables allow visitors to “board” the hot air balloon to take photos.
Festival-goers will be greeted at the entrance by their favourite cast of Kiztopia Friends, in the form of an inflatable welcome arch, before they enter to discover the various countries that the characters have “flown” in from. With the lush and picturesque landscape of Gardens by the Bay as the backdrop for the giant, colourful inflatables, they make for amazing instagrammable moments for the whole family.
Gardens by the Bay’s Director of Programming Mr Dinesh Naidu said, “Our team is excited to organise this year’s Children’s Festival as pandemic restrictions ease. As we progress towards normality, this year’s Children’s Festival will also be a richer experience for families, with more activities for children to enjoy. Not only will there be more giant, colourful inflatables at Supertree Grove, kids can also indulge in exciting sports carnival games and have some much-needed fun under the sun.”
Founder and CEO of Kiztopia Ms Heidi Tian said, “Kiztopia is excited to partner Gardens by the Bay to bring our popular characters in the form of giant inflatables to Children’s Festival this year. With the easing of regulations and more borders opening up, the idea of travel is close to everyone’s heart, making our installation relatable to both adults and kids. In addition, travelling helps to broaden our kids’ horizons and encourages them to explore new experiences. We hope that this festival will help to create precious memories and serve as a great bonding experience for families and their kids, even if they are not travelling out of Singapore this school holidays.”
