Jollitown is Back with Season 4!

What child doesn't love Jollibee and Friends? I don't know any kid (or kid-at-heart for the matter) who doesn't enjoy seeing the friendly bee and the other lovable Jollibee mascots in person or on TV.

Last Saturday, a selected group of excited little ones and their parents got to attend a sneak peek of what Jollitown's 4th season has in store for its fans. We were greeted with a very colorful balloon arc at the entrance to the Whitespace hall in Pasong Tamo Extension.

Beyond the double doors was a virtual fairytale land decorated with new and familiar stuff from the hit children's TV show. I love the colorful decorations that really made the place seem very magical.

Before the program proper started, we were offered lunch consisting of some really yummy treats. I got food from the adult's buffet table but was quite envious when I saw that my son had Chickenjoy on his plate. Although our food was good too, a fellow mom and I agreed that we should have lined up at the kids' buffet table instead! :p

At around 1 p.m., Mr. Q appeared to host the event. He guided us through highlights of the new season. Basically, the magical clock tower DingDangDong is broken and it’s up to Jollibee and friends to put him back together. Along the way, they meet new characters like the futuristic Mr. Tom Morrow and his robots that accidentally went out of control.

To help fix DingDangDong, guests young and old participated in cool and fun games aimed to rebuild Jollitown. My son and I joined the the rainbow game and we won! All the credit goes to Daniel  because he's the one who moves very fast and is good at puzzles too :)

More games had parents and their kids having a lot of fun as they bond during the interactive games. We also witnessed some really awesome art performances by the My Masterpiece Movement as they drew and colored Jollitown to life and took all of us on a very creative time-travel journey.

Before the enjoyable afternoon ended, the well-loved mascots -- Jollibee, Popo, Hetty, Twirlie, and Yum  -- treated guests with a much-awaited performance and gamely posed for photos with all of us later.

Remind your kids to catch their beloved characters onscreen every Sunday as they travel across time and rebuild Jollitown. This 4th season starts airing on July 18, 9 a.m. at ABS-CBN.
