Roary the Racing Car is skidding into MarketPlace Leichardt to take toddlers on the ride of their life!

The Centre’s Toddler Time event will take place in Centre Court on Thursday 17 June, and will feature popular children’s television character Roary the Racing Car.

‘Mechanico Fantastico’ is the lively stage show that explores the adventures of Roary and his friends in a high octane mixture of fun, emotion, mishaps, and mayhem! Three FREE sessions will run at 10am, 11am, and 12pm, with children able to sing along to their favourite Roary tunes during the show.

MarketPlace Leichhardt Centre Manager, Michèle Brett said, “Keeping young children entertained while shopping can be challenging. Toddler Time is a great way for parents to spend quality time with their children, and provide them with a fun and interactive activity, which we hope will make shopping more exciting for the whole family!

Roary the Racing Car is one of the most popular kid’s characters around, and we are thrilled to be able to provide our customers with this free opportunity to see Roary and his friends up close,” she said.

The animated show follows Roary’s adventures with his friends at Silver Hatch race track, where despite the little red racing car’s best efforts, his enthusiastic and curious nature often leads him into trouble.

“As well as the exciting song and dance routines, Roary the Racing Car will also provide fun lessons about road safety, positivity, problem solving, and the importance of healthy living”, said Ms Brett.

Toddler Time is a regular event at MarketPlace Leichhardt and provides a great opportunity for children to join the MarketPlace Leichhardt Kid’s Club and be the first to hear of news and events, just for kids! Membership is open to all children 12 years and under.

Date: Thursday 17 June 2010
Times: 10am, 11am and 12pm
