Good news Sanrio fans, you’re in for a real big treat in the next few weeks. From May 26 to June 26, you can look forward to catching all your favourite Sanrio characters like Hello Kitty, Pompompurin, and Gudetama in life-sized action as they take over the Departure Hall at Changi Airport’s Terminal 3 as part of a “Nordic Adventures” showcase.
The showcase will feature a total of seven Sanrio characters, with a slew of cool activities lined up for fans to experience the “Nordic” lifestyle. For instance, there’ll be a video display on the Northern Lights, a Viking ship-inspired gallery, as well as an indoor snow luge by Snow City, so there’s plenty to look forward to over here.
Of course, each Sanrio character will be dressed in their best Nordic winter outfits; and you can get to take photos with 3-D displays of them. There’ll also be exclusive meet-and-greet sessions with all of the characters, while limited edition gift redemptions can also be made at the exhibition.
The main highlight of this month-long showcase however has to be the character-ranking contest, where you can vote for your favourite Sanrio character online. Six lucky voters (one for each character) will be chosen to witness the unveiling of Changi Airport’s most popular Sanrio character on June 26. But what’s even cooler is that the winner will score a free trip for 4 to Puroland Japan!
Kicking off the festivities will be a Song & Dance opening ceremony by Hello Kitty & Friends on May 26, while for the meet-and-greet sessions, a minimum of $60 has to be spent at Changi Airport on the day itself to redeem a pass. In other Kawaii-related news, 7-Eleven has launched a series of super adorable Sanrio and LINE mugs in Singapore.
