Comic Con 2019 is happening soon. And this year they are doing something new. This year, KidsCon is happening – the first kid-focused convention of it’s kind to be held on African shores.
KidsCon promises to be “…the most exciting family-friendly, kids-oriented convention! As the first and entirely Kid focused convention in Africa, KidsCon is taking the term ‘fun and games’ to the next level by empowering kids to be expressive and embrace their individuality.” I can’t help but think that my 4-year old would be in his element at this convention.
Picture it. There you are, in this huge convention centre, and suddenly you see some of your most favourite characters. First you see Mario and Luigi. Turn a corner, and there is Bumblebee (at this point, my Noah’s mind would be blown). Never mind all the My Little Pony’s mingling with the crowd. Your kid + all their favourite characters = one happy child!
KidsCon is guaranteed to be jam-packed with some awesome activities and things to see and do.
“Children attending the festival will be stimulated as they engage with different interactive areas. Their creative flair will be sparked by the BIC Artist Corner then their imagination will surely run wild as they create new worlds while immersed in the Play-Doh Creations space. Visitors can also team up and face-off as they show off their blasting skills in the HasbroNerf Zone, and experience the Nerf Fornite blaster range, or play it safe by challenging mom to a game of Monopoly or taking a photo with dad at the Nintendo selfie wall and win wonderful prizes…Other activities include building a RC Car with Nintendo Labo and competing at the Transformers Speed Station to see who takes home the prize for transforming a Transformer in the least amount of time, and a chance to take a pic with Transformer Bumblebee.”
KidsCon will be from 21 to 24 September at the Gallagher Convention Centre in Midrand. You can book your tickets by clicking here or here. You do not want to miss the first annual KidsCon!
