4. Tree House Catcher (Redemption Required)
Ready for a fun team challenge? Pair up with a family member or friend and choose one person to be the human ‘controller’ who will direct the human ‘crane’ (the other person) suspended in mid-air to pick up a gift from the gift pool.
It’s sure to loads of fun and a fun test of communication and coordination! Who knows, you could be the one walking away with the top prize of a one-metre tall Sanrio character plush toy!
5. Handheld Maze Games
Lazy Egg Gudetama is late for his party! Try this handheld maze that requests visitor’s help to get Gudetama to the party with his friends! This game, though simple, is especially attractive because of its beautiful illustrations.
6. Yo-Yo Tsuri or Water Fishing (Redemption Required)
This is a fun Japanese festive game where kids will need to use a metal hook attached to the end of a paper hook to catch colourful Christmas balls in the water before the hook disintegrates! Upon fishing out a ball, players will receive a character card which will allow them to redeem prizes in the Ferris wheel station!
7. Ferris Wheel Prize Collector (Redemption Required)
After getting character cards from the Yo-Yo Tsuri game, cross your fingers and give the wheel a BIG spin! Get ready to win exclusive and cute prizes ranging from travel bags, gelato vouchers, stickers and plush toys!
8. Tote Bag Stamping
Redeem a tote bag at the registration counter (whilst stocks last) and bring it over to the stamping area to spruce it up! There are stamps with many different designs that feature characters from Hello Kitty and Friends. You can be as creative as you want and customise your bag!
If they run out of tote bags for the day, try doing it on a piece of paper and framing it up after!
9. Hello Kitty-themed Children’s Playground
So kawaii! The Changi Airport Terminal 3 Basement 2 children’s playground has been transformed to the first-ever Sanrio-themed children’s playground at the airport.
With a variety of mazes to run through and over, as well as a see-saw and many adorable character figurines on display, it’s no wonder that many adults were also joining in the fun, using the different structures as backgrounds for pictures!
