Special Character Appearances throughout the week (at London)
- Meet Monstro City’s number one Moshling conservationist, Buster Bumblechops.
- Say ‘hi’ to Katsuma, the clawsome king of the karate chop!
- Snuggle up to super-cute Poppet for a furry photo opportunity!
On Sunday 16th March we was invited along to the London Sealife Aquarium by Moshi Monsters to do a bit of exploring and to sign up to the Moshi Marine Force
The boys were excited as we have never been to the Sealife Centre and extre excited to be able to meet some of the characters again and becoming a Buster’s conservation hero. As we arrived at the Aquarium we was given an activity book which had a quiz trail inside, we was to find the missing marine moshlings figures hiding in the tanks, write down where we found them and then at the end of the visit we would be able given a secret code in order to unlock a virtual Lubber in the online moshimonsters game. The activity book also has marine jokes and facts inside, something for the children to read on the way home maybe 🙂
It wasn’t after walking around the Aquarium that we spotted our first Moshling hiding in a tank, the boys were really excited and it was nice to see Joseph reading all about the marine animal that was inside the tank. Joseph was showing interest in the information, something he doesn’t normally do, he was enjoying learning about what he was reading. I love how something that he is interested in is helping him with his reading.
Not only did the boys get to find the hidden moshlings but they also spent time looking in all of the tanks at the different marine animals that the Sealife centre had to show
I asked Joseph if he had enjoyed himself and he said “Some people might think that a Sealife centre is boring, but I don’t! I found it very interesting. I had a great time and really enjoyed myself”
“The activity will take place throughout the year at all UK SEA LIFE centres starting at the SEA LIFE London Aquarium on Sunday 16th March and ending at the Brighton SEA LIFE Centre on Sunday 9th November. Participating kids can nose dive into the world of Moshi Monsters where they will be able to meet Buster, Poppet and Katsuma and also bring in their Moshlings to swap with other collectors.
Sarah Taylor, Head of Conservation at SEA LIFE, said about the activity; “We’re really excited about the creation of the Moshi Marine Force. It’s a great chance to get kids involved with all the fantastic conservation work we do and to reach out to them through the medium of Moshi Monsters.”
Commenting on the partnership, CEO and founder of Mind Candy, Michael Acton Smith said: “SEA LIFE is a great fit for us. We already have the Fishies and Sploshies Moshling sets, so it’s great that we can add Salties and Lubber the Whimsical Whale to the collection! We know how important it is to protect the environment, so we hope the Moshi Marine Force will help!”
SEA LIFE has a rich history in marine conservation, from rescuing and rehabilitating dolphins and turtles found along the UK coast, to leading research and campaigning against whaling. The Moshi Marine Force and SEA LIFE’s partnership with the global kids brand, aims to inspire the younger generation to get involved with marine conservation.”
