From 9 Mar to 1 May 2018, our favorite Sesame Street friends will be taking over Singapore’s Changi Airport Terminal 3 with bouncy castles, free pop-up exhibits and ginormous Elmo and Cookie Monster gachapon machines.


These world famous puppets have brought us laughter – and missing cookies – for years. So consider us psyched.


Let’s take a quick look at what’s in store for lucky children – and fans of this classic series this coming March.

P.S. There’s also free limited edition merch available.

Current location: Sesame Street

The larger than life Sesame Street Pop-up Exhibition would be the very first of its kind in Asia from 9 March to 1 May 2018.

The pop-up is open to the public and will be located at Terminal 3, Public Basement 2, just opposite Kopitiam.


Children will finally get to hangout with Big Bird and friends in real life.

For nostalgic adults, you’ll also be able to take a walk down memory lane as you recall watching those classic Saturday morning cartoons.

C is for COOKIE

Steal a cookie or two from Cookie Monster and his piles of chocolate chip cookies.

We’ll definitely consider singing along to a song or too with Oscar the Grouch, when we get up close and personal with him.

Giant Elmo and Cookie Monster gachapon machines

FYI, this surprise capsule is called a Gachapon machine.


There’s nothing more we loved as kids opening these easter egg surprises that rolled out from these machines.

But have you seen a giant Gachapon machine before?

Slot-in game tokens for a sure-win spin of exclusive premiums from 9 Mar to 8 Apr.

The word’s out that a $100 Changi Gift Card is also up for grabs inside one of those balls.

These massive machines are located in front of Terminal 3’s departure hall. It’s soooo big you definitely won’t miss it.

Big Bird’s bouncy castle and ball pit

What’s better than meeting life-size Big Bird?

Bouncing around in an inflatable-castle-slide-ball-pit with all his friends of course.


We spy rock climbing walls, tunnel tubes and massive slide into a colourful ball pit, flanked by Big Bird and friends.

Unfortunately, only kids are allowed on this.


Yup, you read that right. Sorry, older peeps. But hey, there’s still something for everyone.

Parents should note that the inflatable playground will be available from 9 Mar to 8 Apr.

Free limited edition Sesame Street stickers

Did someone say freebies? Cue Elmo’s happy dance.
