Sandton City’s kids’ festive programme
Lego playpit, displays and fire-engine build, plus live Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle shows, will entertain kids at Sandton City until 24 Dec.
Sandton City presents Nickelodeon’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The awesome foursome will thrill Sandton City’s young customers with three shows a day, at 12h00, 15h00 and 18h00, and meet-and-greet sessions at 13h00-14h00, and 16h00-17h00.
(On 24 December, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle shows will be held at 12h00, 15h00 and 16h00, and a meet-and-greet session will take place from 13h00-14h00.)
This Christmas, Sandton City is also going to be transformed into Lego World. There will be awe-inspiring, life-sized Lego figurines, such as Buzz and Woody from Toy Story and Star Wars’ Yoda, on show, as well as Lego displays in the passageways around the mall on the Upper Level. The Checkers Court will be home to a large Lego play area, where children will be able to sit and play with Lego and Duplo blocks to their hearts’ content and take part in speed-build competitions.
There will also be a Fire Engine Build, in which children will be able to help build an enormous fire engine, a process that takes about 250 000 Lego bricks and four to five days to complete. The fire engine is then dismantled and the fun starts all over again.
Sandton City’s famous electric train will be offering customers rides around the centre, and one of the most important people at Christmas time, Santa Claus, will be sitting in his sleigh, posing for photographs with customers.
For shoppers pressed for time, there’ll be two gift-wrapping kiosks on the Upper Level where you have all your presents beautifully wrapped for a donation of R 10 per gift. All proceeds from the gift-wrapping kiosks will be donated to Sandton City’s selected charity for 2014, HospiceWits.
