It’s always sad when Christmas decorations get taken down as the holiday season comes to a close. But we’re not ready to say goodbye to the festivities just yet.
Toys“R”Us is doing everything they can to keep spirits high with their first-ever Toy Fair at the Ocean Terminal branch in Tsim Sha Tsui.
The store has been transformed into a large indoor playground, featuring 18 massive installations, ranging from the ever-so-popular Hatchimals, to the one-of-a-kind, slime from Slimy. Here are five of the best.
DIY Lego portrait
The Lego Mosaic Maker landed in Asia this week for the first time. The gadget offers Lego fans the chance to build a personalised mosaic portrait of themselves, made entirely out of the colourful plastic bricks.
Customers must take a photo inside the Lego photo booth (the funnier the face, the better). After that’s done, the machine prints your photo on a piece of paper and feeds you the kit of Lego bricks needed to assemble your portrait. It’s amazing how similar the resemblance is!

Pick up major speed
You’ve probably played with a toy car before; but have you raced one down a mini racetrack? Not only is there a variety of different coloured cars to choose from, but the track also comes complete with exciting fixtures and crazy obstacles for an added element of difficulty and fun.
Go check it out and challenge your friends to a race.
Dinosaurs may be extinct but the Dinosaur DNA kit brings them back to life. Kind of. Using the excavation tools provided, chisel away at a block of plaster to unearth a detailed T-Rex skeleton, plus a bottle of dinosaur DNA.
When you’re finished, someone will scan the DNA for you, and a remarkably detailed dino will appear on the screen, positioned as if it’s standing right there in front of you. It’s pretty amazing!
There’s very little as satisfying as getting your fingers into this gooey mess. The fair features a huge slime zone where you can play with slime of all textures, and in a range of different colours. It took us a while to walk away
from this zone ... we may have gone home to play with more slime afterwards ...
Up in the air
It’s a bird! It’s a plane! No, it’s the Mystery Flying UFO! This model unidentified flying object can be made to fly around you, without using any electricity or powered assistance. How does it do it?
You’ll get shown how to control the UFO, then get to show off your best aerial moves as your stunned friends watch.
See these attractions and more at the Toy Fair until this Sunday. Free entry.
