WALL’S PADDLE POP AND LEGOLAND® MALAYSIA RESORT break a new record in Malaysia Book of Records
If you are on my facebook or Instagram, I bet you might have noticed that last Friday I went to LEGOLAND® Malaysia Resort and great thanks to Paddle Pop for giving us the opportunity to celebrate Children’s in such an awesome way!
This is actually the first time, I am allowed to bring my husband and our baby Sofea for a media trip and we are sooo excited. It is always nice to hangout with blogger peers and get to know people from the main media including their family members. We went there by 2 bus, great work by the PR team for being super thoughtful and accommodating to us thought out the whole journey!
As we arrived, we check in to Legoland hotel and the room blown up my mind. I am planning to write about the hotel experiences as well as the themepark experience in another post. Please stay tune for that ya.. *wink wink*
One of the main reason we were brought to Legoland is to witness and take part in the campaign to break the Malaysian Book of Records. for “The Biggest Painting Assembled by Children”. In conjunction with World Children’s Day, Paddle Pop and LEGOLAND® Malaysia Resort invited 725 children from various orphanages and kindergartens in Johor as well as children guests from LEGOLAND® Malaysia Resort to paint their pledge to have fun as kids. All individual handprinted tiles from the children were gathered to break the record for the largest assembled painting measuring 12.27 metres by 7.53 metres (40.26 feet by 24.7 feet). This broke the previous record of 9.75 metres by 5.48 metres (32 feet by 18 feet).
“I am extremely thrilled that Wall’s Paddle Pop and LEGOLAND® Malaysia Resort have broken the Malaysia Book of Records with these kids while spreading awareness of “Let Kids be Kids”. The breaking of the record symbolizes the pledge by kids to have fun while they are still kids, which is inspired by Paddle Pop’s brand core belief of “Let Kids be Kids,” Shawn added.
Children today may be busier than ever. Their schedules are usually filled with school, tuition classes and enrichment classes such as piano, art and dance classes. Likewise, childhood pastimes are increasingly moving indoor with electronic gadgets like televisions, computer and mobile devices.
In light of this, Paddle Pop and LEGOLAND® Malaysia Resort joined hands to bring the outdoor fun experience to these children.
“We are happy to collaborate with Paddle Pop under our CSR programme of Merlin Magic Wand to celebrate World Children’s Day with this fantastic record-breaking activity. We are excited to display the painting at our Resort as a beautiful reminder for children and their parents on the importance of balancing studies and having fun outdoors,” said Mark Germyn, General Manager LEGOLAND® Malaysia Resort.During the World Children’s Day activity, over 400 underprivileged children from the orphanages in Johor were treated to a fun and exciting theme park experience in LEGOLAND® Malaysia Resort.
I personally believe that it is important to let kids be kids for as long as they could. It is also even more important for adults especially parents to support, spend some quality time with them and just enjoy the fun together. I will definitely bring Sofea to come and visit Legoland another round.
That’s it for now, thank you for reading my humble post. Stay tune for my future post as I will be sharing more about the hotel room and the themepark plus new show by Legoland. Have a great day ahead!
