If your children are fans of the popular cartoon characters in PJ Masks and Robocar Poli, they are in for a great treat! Not only will they get to meet their favourites like Catboy, Gekko and Owlette, they stand to win prizes and surprises to do with LOL Surprise!, Hello Kitty and so much more at the Sunway Putra Mall this November.

Here’s what to expect at the Surprise Wonderland held at the Sunway Putra Mall’s Main Concourse (Ground Floor) from November 9 – 18th:

1. Meet and Greet the PJ Masks

If you haven’t been able to get the PJ Masks’ song out of your head and your child keeps saying she wants to be Owlette, you know you’ll have to bring them to meet their favourite characters! There will be a Meet & Greet Session with these masked heroes on the 11th of November at 12pm and 2pm, so bring your kids along for some special photographs and a little walkabout.

2. Dance Along With Robocar Poli

It’s time to boogie with the adorable members of the Robocar Rescue team! On the 17th and 18th of November, your children will be able to dance with the characters of Robocar Poli, so come around at 12pm and 2pm for some fun times.  Dancers will guide the children to dance along, so you can take those precious photos of your little dancers.

3. Snap & Win with LOL Surprise

Best of all at the Surprise Wonderland? Just with a simple snap of a photograph, your child stands to win LOL Surprise! goodies they are bound to love. LOL Surprise! won the prestigious Toy of the Year Award from The Toy Association last year and was the Number 1 Toy of 2017 in the US, UK and Canada, so it’s no surprise they are an unboxing favourite.

From the 9th – 16th November, just post a picture of your child with any LOL Surprise! character at the Surprise Wonderland on Instagram.

Hashtag your photos with #lolsurprisespm on your (public) Instagram account, and you may just win the amazing MC Hammy or Eye Spy, along with a Fashion Crush or two. The contest starts from November 9 – 16 (11.59 pm), and the finalist shall be notified on November 17th. Prizes will be given out at the wonderland on November 18th at 12.30 pm.

4. Fun Daily Activities

There will also be plenty of exciting daily activities for families and children at Surprise Wonderland. Children will get to play with sand art, as well as partake in colouring activities there. There will also be 9 x 9 cube puzzles for children to try and solve, an interesting and brain-boosting way to spend their time!

As for adults, there will not only be a dim sum booth for passers-by to subscribe to dim sum (yes you read that right!), but various promotional sales on selected items. If parents are looking for a bargain, they will also get free Tobot Premiums with purchases above RM80 on Tobot items, as well as free Robocar Poli Premiums with purchases above RM80 on Robocar Poli items.

Colourful times with fun sand art.

With so many opportunities for your child to have fun at the Surprise Wonderland, remember to mark these dates down and come over to Sunway Putra Mall in November! For more information, visit their website here.
