Press release -
The world’s most famous street comes to Changi Airport
SINGAPORE, 7 March 2018 – Discover the extra fun side of Changi Airport with the arrival of the lovable gang from Sesame Street! This year, in conjunction with the March, June and September school holidays, Changi Loves Kids has launched a series of surprises and goodies galore for the little ones. Elmo, Cookie Monster, Big Bird, Abby Cadabby and Oscar the Grouch will take travellers and airport visitors on a journey of fun and discovery with an amazing line-up of interactive themed activities throughout the year.
Interactive fun and adventures for all
Kicking things off is the first-in-Asia Our Street to Yours Sesame Street pop-up exhibition (from 9 March to 1 May) in Terminal 3 Basement 2, featuring Instagram-worthy thematic zones and favourite scenes from the well-loved television series. From giving Oscar the Grouch some cheer to snapping a photo with Big Bird at his nest, kids will have all the ELMO-tivation they need for a day of fun!
Then, hop over to the Inflatable Fun with Sesame Street at Changi for a bouncing good time. Kids will have a rush sliding down a 4.7m-tall slide that leads to a huge multi-coloured ball pit, and navigating their way through inflatable obstacles like tunnels, a ladder and a climbing wall. This 30m-long inflatable playground will be in Terminal 3 Departure Hall from 9 March to 8 April, before moving to Terminal 4 from 25 May to 1 July. Keep in mind that ‘L is for Luck’ when you try the larger-than-life Gachapon machines with Sesame Street-themed capsules filled with special deals and prizes from shops and restaurants in Changi Airport.
Limited edition Sesame Street and exclusive Changi Loves Kids collectibles
Add a dash of colour to your note-taking with exclusive Sesame Street Mahrker notebooks. These brightly-coloured collectible notebooks are embossed with Sesame Street characters featuring Elmo, Cookie Monster, Big Bird, Oscar and Abby Cadabby, and will be available progressively from 5 March to 1 May.
In addition, as a memento of the time spent in the world’s most lovable neighbourhood, kids can redeem a Passport to Fun to collect stamps for the adventures they complete. Help Cookie Monster find his way around Changi Airport and score a ‘fast pass’ to the June installment of Sesame Street activities. Be rewarded with a special gift if you complete the entire Changi Loves Kids Sesame Street Journey from March to October!
From 9 March, kids will also receive thematic colouring and sticker books with a series of Sesame Street characters and other cute themes to keep them occupied as parents dine in any of the restaurants within the public area. Plus, collect exclusive Sesame Street stickers at participating restaurants or any Information or Customer Service counters in the public areas of Terminal 1, 2, 3 and 4.
Mr James Fong, Vice President for Landside Concession at Changi Airport Group said: “With the Changi Loves Kids initiative, we want to make the airport the go-to destination for families to shop, dine and play. For many of us, Sesame Street was a significant part of our childhood and we grew up learning with these lovable characters. We are delighted to partner with Sesame Street to create fun, endearing and interactive spaces for the children that would also bring nostalgic delight for their parents.”
