Hello Kitty fans in Singapore, rejoice! The famous feline is coming to Singapore, and bringing her posse of cute friends along for the ride.
Held for the first time outside Hong Kong, the Hello Kitty Go Around!! carnival will feature Hello Kitty and friends in its many booths, where you will get to play interactive games and win yourself a limited edition prize while at it.
WAttention Singapore was invited to get an exclusive first look at the event, and BOY were we excited to be there!
From the moment we stepped into the carnival area, we were greeted by an assortment of adorable characters from the Sanrio family which are guaranteed to induce loud exclamations of “Oh my God so cute!” from both the young and the young at heart.
The entire carnival area consists of many strategic photo points, including a gorgeous mini Ferris wheel and huge UFO catchers that you can crawl into and be photographed while surrounded by Hello Kitty in a variety of beautiful dresses from her extensive closet.
There are also 6 game corners, including Tiny Chum’s Ring Toss, Sanrio Baby Race, and my personal favourite ― Save The Goldfish, a surprisingly challenging game requiring a good sense of timing, dexterity and luck.
There is even a booth where you can channel your inner creative cat and customize your own tote bag with Hello Kitty stamps. Well… we tried our best (#suchkitty #muchcreative).
Other highlights of the carnival include the Apple Temple where you can write down your wish on a wooden plaque (絵馬) and hang them up. You can also stop by the Post Office and mail out an actual postcard with an exclusive postmark to your loved ones, or get yourself a temporary Hello Kitty tattoo at the Tattoo Kiosk as a souvenir.
And if these are not reason enough to make a trip down to spend the day with Hello Kitty and friends, you can even get your hands on never-seen-before memorabilia, stationery sets and collectible figurines exclusive only to Hello Kitty Go Around!! In Singapore.
Hello Kitty will also be celebrating her birthday here on 1 November, so book your ticket early to stand a chance to win a photo session with her!
