For the first time in Singapore, visitors to The Shoppes can enjoy an interactive Christmas experience at booths where they can have fun with animated 3D Santas via a holographic screen boasting an 8K display resolution. Titled Looking Glass, three of these booths will be located throughout the shopping mall, to allow visitors to interact with a different themed Santa at each booth – Dapper Santa, Gourmet Santa and Joyous Santa.
Inspired by the spirit of spreading positivity during this festive period, these holographic screens are controlled via motion sensors, enabling visitors to select outfits for Dapper Santa to wear, dishes for Gourmet Santa to whip up in a kitchen, or receive virtual gifts of luck, love and health from Joyous Santa, depending on the booth they visit.
Little ones can start penning their letters to Santa on a Shoppes postcard and drop them into a magical Santa’s Box located in front of Hamleys of London toy store. Available for pick-up at the Santa’s Box and retail concierge counters, these postcards contain a wish list of handpicked gifts (worth up to S$300 each) from The Shoppes’ children’s boutiques, where little ones can check off and stand to win. Four winners with the best letters will be picked over four weeks leading up to 20 December.
