It’s fair to say that one of the key focal points of Hungary’s EXPO2020 pavilion, was the enticing and exhilarating mammoth ball pit that formed the centerpiece of the exhibition, drawing thousands of visitors during its 6-month long tenure at the ‘World’s Greatest Show’.
Though the pavilion has now closed its doors, UAE residents can still enjoy a slice of the ball pit action with 2,000 balls being given a new lease of life and a home at parent and child concept store, Maison Tini. A major attraction at EXPO2020 and a true favourite of all children visiting, recycling the plastic balls was a no brainer for the founder of Maison Tini, Mona Jaber, who, conscious of wasting plastic, struck an agreement with the Hungary pavilion manager to donate 2,000 balls and give them a new permanent home that the children of Dubai can continue to enjoy.
The Maison Tini ball pit may not be as big as the Hungary pavilion, but it is certainly as fun and leaves a little piece of EXPO2020 in the hearts of all who come to play. Now officially open, are you ready to dive in?
