2. Transformers Animatronics
The exhibition’s scale is itself worthy of the Transformers themselves. A minimum of 2,500sqm of floor space is needed over a 20-day build-up to bring the sculptures and statues to life, displayed against the scenery of the legendary planet, Cybertron, all brought to life through eye-popping performance technology.
In addition, an arsenal of weapons used by the Transformers characters will be showcased. Fans young and old can immerse themselves in the incredible universe of these otherworldly creations, from their origins in comic books to the television series and blockbuster movies that have garnered billions of dollars in revenue.
Autobots and Decepticons will also feature prominently, accompanied by the latest Dino Bots and famous Rescue Bots, the famed pre-school series that has expanded the Transformers fan base. Kids (and those young at heart) will get to enjoy a dedicated kids’activation zone, where they can build their own Transformers using waste materials.
Following the sold out South American tour Transformers Animatronics: The Exhibition is currently travelling to South Africa in 7 shipping containers. After a 90 day transit from port to port Transformers Animatronics: The Exhibition will be in South Africa for 11 months, exhibiting in three cities, Johannesburg, Centurion and Cape Town.
Keep an eye out for the school competition! Pick ‘n Pay School Club in association with Transformers Animatronics: The Exhibition wants to see schools recycling. The school class with the best recycling campaign will win tickets to see Transformers Animatronics: The Exhibition.

3. Easter Chocolate Workshop
Easter may still be a few weeks away, but do we really need an excuse to have fun with chocolate? Kids can each make a chocolate figurine from modelling chocolate, finger-paint chocolate flowers and create chocolate leaf templates. The highlight of the workshop is when each child decorates their own chocolate bunny.
You’ll appreciate Pooh’s sunny nature and his love of honey. Pooh and his friends go on expeditions, muse about honey and birthdays, tell jokes and sing songs. There are two shows daily: 9am and 11am during the school term and 10:30am and 11:30am on weekends, public holidays and school holidays. Bookings essential.
