Ben 10 touring in Africa


Cartoon Network is pleased to announce that Ben 10 is here to stay for the festive season! The animated phenomenon, that had children across Africa wanting to transform into their favourite alien, will come to life this December! To engage all the next-gen Ben 10 fans, Cartoon Network has prepared plenty of new, exciting content to be enjoyed on and off screen this holiday season. Not only will children be able to view their favourite characters on the channel, viewers can look forward to meeting and engaging with Ben and his alien team in person, through a series of live, action-packed, extraterrestrial events that promise to captivate families across South Africa!

Cartoon Network will be bringing the aliens to you through an epic Ben 10 Mall tour which will host multiple activations and activities for kids to engage in. With elements such as Virtual Reality entertainment, character meet and greets, drawing and gaming stations, photo booths, chill out screening areas and more, there’s no excuse not to bring your children to come engage and play! The tour will start in Johannesburg and Pretoria with activations at both Menlyn Park Shopping Centre and Cresta Shopping Centre from 1st to the 3rd of December, followed by Gateway Theatre of Shopping in Durban and Canal Walk Shopping Centre in Cape Town from the 8th to the 10th of December.

Shoppers at Eastgate Shopping Centre in Johannesburg can expect a Cartoon Network pop-up event area to celebrate creativity from the 8th to the 24th of December. Families across Johannesburg can look forward to interacting with Cartoon Network characters, watching non-stop entertainment on and off the stage, participating in a Ben 10 obstacle course, creating their own avatar at The Powerpuff Girl “create and print” station, drawing in a dedicated craft area with iPads and interactive walls as well as getting digital with a special augmented reality experience that will have you wanting more and MORE!

For those of you who cannot make it out to the malls this December, not to worry, Cartoon Network has you covered! The channel will be airing some fresh new content including a new Game Show: Ben 10 Challenge, along with a special episode, where for the first time ever, a new alien will be revealed! The live game show, based on the animated series, will follow two teams of fans – two children up against one adult as they are put through the ultimate physical and psychological Ben 10 challenge! In addition to this, the channel will bring their little fans the ultimate digital experience in an attempt to beat boredom and combat the holiday blues, with a brand new app and micro website to support their “on the ground” holiday activities and activations. The Ben 10 Augmented Reality App, to tie in with the live gameshow, Ben 10 Challenge, will utilise AR technologies to bring viewers at home an authentic, action filled hero experience – kids across Africa will be able to save the world at the simple flick of a hand or kick of a foot! Cartoon Network has packed more punch into the festive season with a series of fun quizzes and games your little ones can find online on the dedicated Ben 10 Challenge micro-site, which promises to keep kids entertained for hours on end.
