Cotlands is thrilled to announce its participation in the World Play Day celebration on Sunday, May 28. With the exciting theme of “Play the Hero,” Cotlands aims to bring joy and imaginative play to children across South Africa while raising awareness of our mission.
The Cotlands Western Cape Toy Library team will host two special events as part of the festivities. On Saturday, May 27, Cotlands will be at Circle Centre in Somerset West, and on Sunday, May 28, at Centre Point in Milnerton. Both events will take place from 9AM to 2PM, and families are encouraged to join in the fun.
Cotlands will create a vibrant pop-up play area where children can unleash their creativity and engage in various activities. One of the highlights will be the opportunity for kids to decorate their very own superhero masks, allowing them to step into the shoes of their favourite superheroes. The malls will set up a photo booth, adding an extra touch of excitement to the event.
To add to the excitement, Cotlands will host a “Best Dressed Superhero” contest, with fantastic prizes up for grabs. Children who come dressed as their favourite superheroes will have a chance to win these awesome prizes, fostering a sense of fantasy and inspiring imaginative play.
“We are thrilled to celebrate World Play Day with the ‘Play the Hero’ theme and promote the importance of play-based learning. The first five years are essential for a child’s development, and we want to increase the number of early learning opportunities for vulnerable children in South Africa,” said Cotlands CEO, Dr Monica Stach. “By creating a dynamic play area and encouraging children to embrace their inner heroes, we hope to inspire joy and spark their imaginations. We invite everyone in the community to join us, show their support, and positively impact the lives of children in need.”
Cotlands invites families, children, and community members to visit the Circle Centre Shopping Centre in Somerset West or Centre Point Shopping Centre in Milnerton on the respective dates. Together, we can make a difference by supporting a cause promoting play’s importance in early childhood development.
