Festive Thrills At Sandton City
At 700 square metres and featuring exclusive activations by brands including Hamleys, Build-a-Bear, Toy Kingdom, LEGO® and Checkers, Toyland at the Centre Court will be everything that dreams are made of for young hearts this festive season. Live acts by The Cirk acrobatic artists (daily at 12:00 and 16:00 from 09 – 24 December 2021) and ballet dancers (daily at 14:00 and 18:00 from 16 – 24 December 2021) are set to enthrall shoppers or those who’d like to pause and enjoy the wonder of these complimentary performances.
Santa Claus Is Coming To The City
Santa Claus himself will usher in the festive season with his much-anticipated arrival! From 09 December, children will not only get to meet the legendary man in person, but also to treasure these special moments forever with an array of photographic packages available. He can be found in Toyland daily from 09:00 – 18:00, except on 24 December from 09:00 – 14:00, when he needs to leave early to start delivering gifts.
O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
The Disney Christmas Tree will give shoppers an opportunity to pay it forward by supporting the Smile Foundation, a non-profit organisation that works to improve the quality of life of children with facial conditions. At 10 metres high and adorned with over 400 Disney plush toys, the tree will serve as an invitation to pledge R50 towards this wonderful cause. After the festive season, all of the plush toys and the pledges will be donated to children that have undergone corrective facial reconstructive surgery and treatments, because every child deserves to smile.
Extended Shopping Hours
Knowing that selecting the perfect gifts takes time, Sandton City has extended their trading hours. Visitors will be able to shop from its over 300 prestigious stores from 09:00 – 20:00 from 09 – 15 December 2021; from 09:00 – 21:00 from 16 – 23 December 2021, and from 09:00 – 18:00 on 24 December 2021. Also, the centre has recently launched an online gift card service which provides a new gifting solution, perfect for gift-givers wanting to give the gift of choice to their loved ones. The online gift cards may be purchased at sandtoncity.com.
Gift Wrapping Made Easy!
Two convenient gift-wrapping stations will ensure that nobody gets a sneak peek at what’s inside the shopping parcels before Christmas. These stations allows shoppers to have their purchases beautifully wrapped in a bespoke wrapping paper and to donate to the Sandton Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) in lieu of this service. You can find these gift wrapping stations outside Queenspark and Jet.
"From our immersive Toyland installation to captivating live performances, exquisite décor, extended trading hours, wrapping services and more, there is no better place to enjoy the splendour of the festive season this year” says Preston Gaddy, General Manager of Sandton City. “We can’t wait to welcome visitors of all ages to Sandton City and look forward to making this holiday even happier,” he added.
