Up your IG Game at Singapore's First-ever Pop-up emoji™ Exhibit at Marina Square with a Ball Pit & Poo (?!)


If a picture paints a thousand words, how many in an emoji?

I, for one, pepper pretty much every text and social media post I upload with smileys, hearts, stars, poo and various other emoji to convey my feelings the way emoji can.

❤ it or 😩 it, emoji have taken over our daily communication because they represent a universal language that can be understood by everyone and can help with cross-cultural communication. More importantly though, they are just so FUN to use! 😂😁🤣😊😜😆😝😍😉

And because they are so well-loved and popular, Marina Square is the place to be this June school holidays for Singapore's first-ever Pop-up emoji Exhibit! 🙌

From now until 16 June 2019, Marina Square’s Central Atrium will be transformed into the Land of emoji™, with large-scale photo stations featuring some of emoji™’s most popular icons. Sprawling 4,500 square-feet, this is where emoji literally take over! And it's totally FREE!!! 😲

There will be loads of photo opportunities for everyone - young and old, with TEN specially created photo stations which will put visitors in enviably fun scenarios.

In my opinion though, the most crazily fun of the lot will have to be this. 😍

A giant ball pit right in the middle of the atrium! 😱

Do note, however that the ball pit is solely for photo opportunities... and not meant for kids to play inside. 😅

But photo opportunities can also mean like this, RIGHT? 😂😂😂

In addition to the colourful ball pit, visitors can also express their favourite emoji personalities in fun, colourful photo stations that will allow people to go all trigger-happy with their 📱.

Whether is it posing beside 👻, imagining yourself to be among the ☁ with  🦄 and 🌈, or getting behind 🧜‍♂️ in an underwater scene, there will be ample chances to score plenty of perfect photos to populate your IG feed. ✌

Ever harbour that secret wish to transform your face into an emoji? Well, your prayers have been answered. 😳

Head to the two emoji™ giant boards to transform your face into either a facial emoji™.... or if you prefer, a poo emoji™. 🤩

For some reason, the 💩 emoji are ALWAYS the most popular emoji... even for Ale. (Erm, and for me) 🤣

 And just in case you are not that well-versed in the world of emoji, there is also a full-size know-your-emoji™ panel that will help you put a name to your favourite icons. 👍

You want EVEN MORE emoji, you say?

How about 15 more??? 👏👏👏

Say hello to1️⃣5️⃣ life-sized 3D emoji™, all in the form of the world’s favourite expressions! 💪

Pick your fave emoji™ expression and snap away! 📷

Just to add to the emoji fun, there will also be emoji Meet & Greet sessions too! 🤝

On 8, 9, 15 and 16 June 2019, at 3pm and 7pm, the emoji™ ghost, poo and heart eyes will come to life and fans can get up-close and take photos in the first ever meet-the-emoji™ sessions in Singapore. There is no minimum spend required and the sessions are open to everyone.

However, do note that the photo passes are limited to the first 70 families per session, on a first-come-first-serve basis. 🙃

I think they will be super popular with the crowd because for one, how often can one say they have taken a photo with a little piece of poo? 🤭
