So today was the day, the monkeys and I got up early and were on the train by 07.30 to London's Leicester Square. We had a very important date with Dora the Explorer but first off a breakfast date! Along with other bloggers we were invited by Evolution PR and UKMumsTV to a pre-opening event at the new flagship Nickelodeon Store, in London's Leicester Square.
Breakfast was almost right next door at a fab eatery, Muriel's kitchen. We got to choose off the breakfast menu (there was even one for kids), sip coffee and shakes and chat about the imminent store event! The food was amazing and the service fabulous. They even provided us with little lunch bags to take home later with us.
Moving onto the store which opens to the public for the first time ever Saturday 30th May, We were greeted by Dora who took our exclusive invites off us, posed for photo's with the kids as they went in and then handed us over to the team looking after us!
The monkeys and I were given a tour of the 2 storey store with mezzanine on the first floor. Sponge Bob merchandise features highly with lots of stuff exclusive to the store. There was also Dora the Explorer merchandise, Ninja Turtles, and some Paw Patrol. Large screens showed exerts from the shows, kids will be able to play on state-of-the-art multimedia and interactive devices. The slimy stairs are awesome! There are selfie walls and lots more! A sea of bright colours and something for every kid (big or small) that loves Nickelodeon.
We decorated hats, older kids took part in a treasure hunt and all those who wanted to played pass the parcel!
As we left, utterly enthralled by the store and all it has to offer, we were handed mega goody bags with a fab selection of the new Nick Store merchandise inside.
Thanks Nickelodeon, Evolution PR and UKMumsTV, we had a blast!
