CBeebies Live! comes to Asia for the first time, and makes Singapore its inaugural stop. Starting 29th November and ending on 15th December 2013 at Plaza Singapura, the young and young at heart will be able to get up close with the Zingzillas and the Teletubbies as they sing and dance to familiar tunes from their own shows.

CBeebies Live! (StarHub Channel 303) is a television channel for pre-schoolers, owned by BBC Worldwide, with emphasis on the concept of “learn through play’.

At the CBeebies Live! You’re a Star this Christmas event, pre-schoolers and their carers will get to meet the ZingZillas, a band of four primates (Zak, Tang, Panzee and Drum) who live on a tropical island where music is everything; and of course, the Teletubbies, Tinky Winky, Dipsy, Laa Laa and Po which everyone should be familiar with.

The event is free to all visitors of the mall and is produced by Millennium Entertainment International (MEI) for Plaza Singapura.

I brought Asher to a special Zingzillas “Meet and Greet” media preview last Saturday morning and he had a blast of a time:
