KidZania teams with Spin Master for Christmas charity initiative this season

KidZania London, the indoor city run by kids at Westfield London is teaming up with Spin Master Toys for the second year to spread festive joy to children across the country this Christmas. 

The giant Spin Master Advent Calendar returns to the city on December 1 this year, this time promising to be "even bigger and better than before."

Each day in December, one lucky child who visits the city will get to open a door on the calendar, which stands pride of place in KidZania’s airport. Inside each of the 25 doors is a Spin Master toy to be won instantly.

This year, the advent calendar is linked to a series of UK charities. Each day, when the door is opened, £1,000 worth of toys will be given to a different charity – a donation totalling £25,000 throughout December – helping to spread the festive joy to children and families in need this Christmas.

The calendar launches on Saturday 1st December and will see a host of celebrities helping to donate the toys and spread word of the good cause. Last year’s advent calendar was unwrapped by Saira Khan, Linda Robson and Stacey Solomon, along with their children and Linda’s grandchildren, in support of the Alexander Devine Children’s Hospice and KidsOut charities.

Along with winning prizes, the event will also give kids the opportunity to enjoy some festive fun, with many exciting real-life activities to try – from learning to be a pilot with British Airways or a radio DJ with Global Radio.

Parents take advantage of KidZania’s new Westfield London one-day VIP pass. Children who are aged eight years and over can be checked in to the city to play, learn and discover in a safe and secure environment, while busy mums and dads hit the centre to do their Christmas shopping.
