The SM Supermalls gathers together forty well loved cartoon characters as it celebrates summer with the biggest and only gathering of cartoon characters in 44 malls nationwide. Dubbed “SM Toonfest”, the summer-long festival that ends May 31 features exciting activities, cartoon-related toys and interesting finds for the whole family and the cartoon-lover to enjoy.
Kids and kids-at-heart, of course with their families, will also be delighted to Meet and Greet some of their favorite characters in SM Toonfest. These are cartoon friends generations of children have grown up with: from classic characters like Bugs Bunny, Tom & Jerry, and DC Comic Heroes to modern hits like Angry Birds and Despicable Me Minions. There are also characters from well loved television series like Sesame Street’s Elmo, Cookie Monster, Bert, and Ernie; Spongebob and Patrick, Dora and Boots, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Ben10, and Garfield.
Girls will love meeting Monster High, Barbie Ballerina, Polly Pocket, and Hello Kitty; while boys will have fun with friends from Alex the Lion, Lorax, Hop, and Robby Rabbit.
Fun activities include face painting, coloring contests, exciting raffle prizes, scrapbook making, cartoon film showings, arts and crafts shows and one-of-a-kind play centers and game areas. Special discounts will be available for toys and other character items on sale.
The SM Toonfest was recently launched at SM City Fairview, with 25 of the 40 participating cartoon characters in attendance. Thousands of shoppers joined in the fun, including kids from the Autism Society of the Philippines Lagro Chapter and Kids Act Philippines performers.
SM’s Toonfest is supported by Bates/Nickelodeon, Richprime, Pacific Licensing, Honeybarn, Solar, Click Licensing and Astroplus/Magnavision, among others. With all the beloved cartoon characters in the malls this summer, SM can truly say, Everything’s Here.
