I had been lucky to be invited to an event recently. It was one of those very rare occasions where I am allowed to bring a kid with me, and not only that, it was really an event for kids. It was a media launch of Jollitown Season 4, giving us a preview of their new exciting season. Kyle had been a huge fan of Jollibee since he was about three, so when I told him about it, he was ecstatic. He started preparing the clothes that he would be wearing and he simply couldn’t stop talking about it. In fact, his eagerness towards attending the said event made us arrived really early at Whitespace in Makati that Saturday morning.

Upon entering the venue hall, one is transported right into Jollitown. There’s the Jollicademy, fire engines, the flower store, friendly tree, the magical clock tower DingdangDong and the city hall. Kids and parents got the chance to meet and greet the cute beloved characters of their favorite show. Kyle even insisted that I participate in a game (which I did only because he persuaded me) with him. He was delighted too when his name was called by Jollibee himself. “It made me feel extra special in some way,” says Kyle. We lost in the game all right, but it was fun plus we went home with consolation prizes anyway.

Kyle ate a lot of his favorite Jollibee chickenjoy, cone twirl vanilla ice cream dipped in chocolate krispies and peach mango pies. The adults were treated to a catering by Albergus, although some parents just couldn’t resist the yummy Jollibee products so they hopped onto the kids’ food station to get some.
Guests also had a fantastic time with the unique games where they got first-hand of what it’s like to be in Jollitown. Kyle enjoyed the interactive art performance by My Masterpiece Movement, they drew and colored Jollitown to life with awesome masterpieces and took participants in a time-travel journey.

“Jollitown’s goal had always been to entertain and impart values to children. To further strengthen this endeavor, we made a new season even more zestful and fun to effectively reach out to the show’s young audience,” says Twinkle Aniceto, Jollibee brand manager.

Of course, just like any special Jollibee event, the day ended without the entertaining performance from the talented crew of Jollibee, Popo, Hetty, Twirlie and Yum. Kids gamely danced with them and had their photos taken with them as well.
