Who would not love Madagascar’s King Julien? He is the perfect combination of naughty and nice. Even as a grown-up, it puts a smile on my face when I see him dance.

Kids and kids at heart would really enjoy watching King Julien and his crew in the upcoming events in DreamPlay.

DreamPlay is also treating its guests with a limited-time 1 year celebration activities such as:

• DreamWorks character photo-ops including a souvenir printed photo
• Weekend fun with Shrek and Donkey making some hot air balloon-shaped gingerbread cookies
• Weekend flash mob celebration
• Interactive arts and crafts workshops

Asking City of Dreams’ Property President on how he thinks DreamPlay can affect the Filipino youth, he gave an example on how he visited an orphan and brought a girl named Tricia to DreamPlay. Starting out as a very timid girl, he saw her imagination unlocked when she was in the interactive playroom. “I saw her confidence grow. I saw her from being timid to being enthusiastic. She never would’ve had that experience if she didn’t come here and that experience unlocked different parts of her mind.”

DreamPlay is more than just a mere amusing place for children and the child at heart. It is a studio centered in making the young ones happy while also contributing to their growth and development. After all, isn’t that the best thing about being a kid?
