Observe children and remind ourselves about good parenting. Sunday was spectacular watching children join Nickelodeon Dora's Best Friends' Picnic event at SM Megamall. I felt the same amusement observing students' aghast at every school task last Sunday watching kids try to get their parents' attention, gaze at the mascots, jump for joy at games, haggle in line getting a face paint and more. Little Nicksters aged 2 to 7 participated in fun-tastic games and surprises with their family with Dora the Explorer and Friends.
Booths to enjoy were Dora and Boots Friendship Rings booth, Diego's Face Painting Corner, Benny's Smart Art Ballons and BFF's Looms Factory for some swags to play with. The other side were treats courtesy of Purefoods Fun Nuggets, Zesto Juice Drinks and Alaska Nutri-Build 345 Milk which also allowed participants to register for discounts.
There were also toys, mugs, bags, shoes and shirts that can be purchased at the event. Nicksters also played a game of trivia showing off their knowledge of Nickelodeon's famous characters and other games with each playing bringing home a lootbag after the event.
What was most fun to watch was the dancing with the mascots. I loved the event observing the children and reflecting on how simple joys parents can actually give bonding on weekends. I hope there'll be more fun exciting events like these by Nickelodeon, celebrating their 35th year globally and 16th year in Asia. We have a lot to learn being a Nickster belonging to the young at heart. For more information about Nickelodeon in Asia, visit www.nick-asia.com.
