To celebrate the most joyous season of the year, SM Megatrade Hall will be holding the "Manila Toys and Gifts Show" on December 16 – 21, 2008. The six-day event will be held at Megatrade Hall 2, SM Megamall and will feature programs and exhibits that will cater to the rush of shoppers and other interested participants.

The event aims to reach not just children, the usual targets when it comes to toys, but all ages, especially the young at heart who enjoy giving and receiving toys and gifts. Products that will be showcased include toys, apparels, shoes, fashion accessories, home accessories, kids' accessories, novelty and other gift items, food, and a lot more.

Visitors will witness not only showcases of toys and other items, but also different activities that the whole family can enjoy. Featured activities include magic shows, storytelling with kids, Holiday Cooking Demos, Meet and Greet Santa, cosplay, and other exciting games, gifts and surprises.


Another event highlight will be the 3rd Annual Toys and Collectibles Christmas Fair, co-organized by Collectibles Unlimited, which will run from December 19 – 21, 2008. This highly anticipated part of the event is the target of many collectors and hobbyists, as the fair features collectibles, hard-to-find toys, toy auctions, and other exciting and cool stuff that collectors and other interested visitors will take pleasure in.

The main feature of the event will be the "Light the Tree, Light a Hope" project, a fund raising activity for the benefit of Bantay Bata 163. With this activity, Megatrade hopes to give back to the community by selling special Christmas items to visitors, which will then be displayed in the giant Christmas Tree in the Hall. Proceeds of the sales of these products together with other donations will then be awarded to Bantay Bata 163 on the last day of the event.

This is not an official program or activity for the Manila Toys and Gift Show, but I got request from our Cosplay models to have a cosplay costrip at the 3rd day (last day) of the event, since most of them aren't available on the 2nd day for the Cosplay Xmas Catwalk Show.

everyone is invited to come in their costume at the ground.

many kids will be there on the 3rd day, and I know they will enjoy when they see these sparkling people in colorful costumes and anime character attitudes.

* registration not required
just blend your costume with a Christmas theme.
gory and nude costumes are not allowed.
