KidsCon – The first Kid focused festival

Whether you’re a geek/comic nerd, love your movies, or into Disney, we have all heard of Comic Con (especially those Big Bang Theory fans). I’ve always wanted to attend a Comic Con but I either miss the dates or I can’t attend because of my kids. Well now, I have some amazing news for you. Comic Con Africa 2019 is hosting a spectacular four day event. For kids! It’s a family friendly, kids oriented convention. KidsCon is taking the term ‘fun and games’ to the next level by empowering kids to be expressive and embrace their individuality. It’s the first and entirely kid focused convention in Africa and will be hosted at the Gallagher Convention Centre in Midrand between the 21st and 24th of September 2019. The interactive four-day convention is geared to celebrating and inspiring all kids to embrace the superhero within and to cosplay along with the those who are older, but still kids at heart.

To make sure that the kids rule the playground, KidsCon is designed by Kids for Kids, which is why the KidsCon Board of Little Experts was established. As a board of 14 diverse children (ages 5 to 10) the KidsCon experts shared their insights on various trends and products. Their input was used to create an unforgettable, dynamic and modern experience that’ll have parents itching to join in on the fun.

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 Hasbro Nerf 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.

Visitors are in for a number of treats like meeting some of their favourite characters like, Mario Karts’ Mario and Luigi, your favourite My Little Pony and many more. 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. Besides the Mario Kart and Ultimate Dance competitions., there are numerous other giveaways at KidsCon. Families can shop, learn and play to their hearts content while enjoying the ultimate kids experience. Hosting the best fashion, the newest merchandise, a digital universe, and a gaming corner is only the tip of the iceberg. The awe-inspiring exhibitors will keep the whole family on their toes and occupied for hours.
