FOLLOWING its 60th anniversary celebration in Malaysia, Barbie, in collaboration with Sunway Putra Mall, brings its latest “You Can Be An Explorer” campaign which gives girls a chance to be an “explorer” for a day.
Parents and children can visit the “World of Barbie” event at the mall’s Main Concourse, Ground Floor until Oct 20.
There are many fun-filled activities to give children an Explorer career experience, including weekend activities and competitions to bring to life more careers, in line with the brand’s aim to inspire every girl to pursue their dream, ambition and career.
There are several zones, including the “Barbie You Can Be An Explorer” section where children can explore the new Barbie World Explorer App in a camper van setting and be a safari explorer in the AR World of Barbie.
How about being a chef for a day through fun baking games and activities in the “Barbie You Can Be A Chef” zone? Children can test their skills and timing in creating cupcakes, drinks and more in the game zone.
One of the highlights of “Barbie You Can Be A Pilot” zone is a life-size plane slide in Barbie’s iconic pink. Young ones can play on the slide or pose alongside the eye-catching plane.
In the “Barbie You Can Be An Artist” zone, be an artist for a day and try the latest Barbie x Crayola toys. With fruity-smelling Crayola markers, children get to colour-in Barbie dolls’ clothes and accessories.
Over at the “Barbie You Can Be A Director”, children can sing along to one of Barbie’s iconic songs or pose as a movie director with props.
With a minimum spend of RM50, each child will receive a Barbie Explorer Passport (Activity Stamp Book) to complete all the zones and receive a Barbie Explorer Certificate upon completion.
The Barbie Career Dress-up Contest which is being held today from 2pm to 3pm will give children a chance to dress up in their best career outfit such as a pilot, astronaut, doctor or even a princess fairy. The sky is the limit for their imaginations.
Each child will parade their career outfit and will be given two minutes to share their career aspirations. Win exciting prizes worth up to RM6,000.
At the Barbie You Can Be A Scientist Workshop (happening today, tomorrow and on Oct 19 and 20, from noon to 1pm), each child can become a scientist for a day and create a pink slime bomb.
Meanwhile, in the “Barbie You Can Be A Jewellery Maker Workshop” (taking place today, tomorrow and on Oct 19 and 20, from 4pm to 5pm), children can showcase their creativity in the jewellery making class where they can design their very own bracelet.
For both workshops, there will be two sessions per day (for Saturday and Sunday only). Sessions are limited to 20 people on a first-come, first-served basis and pre-registration is required for all contests and workshops.
There will be a Barbie 60th Anniversary Dolls Showcase with 60 Barbie dolls wearing custom-styled outfits specially designed by Limkokwing Fashion Club students and hair styled by the A Cut Above Academy students. Be sure to catch the display ending tomorrow at the mall’s front entrance.
