MERKSEM – The countdown is on to the Great Sinterklaas Show in the Sportpaleis. On Saturday 2 and Sunday 3 December, not only Sinterklaas and his Soot Petes, but also many Studio 100 friends will visit: Samson & Marie, Nachtwacht, the Gamekeepers, Maya, Bumba & Bumbina, Mega Mindy, K3, Piet Piraat and Bertus Bandit, and Plop and his friends.
As if the party wasn’t big enough already, Santa Claus is going the extra mile this year with the help of Bebat and Recupel. Bring your old, unused or broken electronic toys or gadgets to the Sinterklaas show. That deserves a present. Do you also have empty batteries? You’ll get one more for that. And your brought-in stuff could just play a role in the show. Call: bring empty batteries and old electronics, receive gifts in exchange and help your Studio 100 friends. In addition to a huge party with all Studio 100 figures, and of course Saint Nicholas and his Soot Petes, Studio 100 wants to give an important message to all good children.
Anja Van Mensel, CEO Studio 100 Benelux: ‘By joining forces with Bebat and Recupel, this year’s show revolves around sustainability. After all, not all presents that Sinterklaas brings have to be brand new. If the children help recycle by bringing used batteries and unused electronics to the show, they will receive gifts in return. And they might even become the heroes of the show…’
From last Saturday there will also be a video series in which all kinds of Studio 100 figures teach you something about your empty batteries and unused electrical equipment. As icing on the cake, youth heroes such as the Night Watch and Mega Mindy call on you to bring your empty batteries, broken electronic toys or other unused electronic gadgets (think of an old tablet, headphones, electric toothbrush, etc.) to The Great Sinterklaas Show. . Does it still work? Then it will definitely be a gift for someone else, because after the show it will go to the local thrift store.
Eric Dewaet, CEO of Recupel: ‘Learned young is old, and this also applies to the sustainable use of your electrical equipment. Make sure they don’t break, have them repaired, donated or recycled. Children quickly pick up on this, participate enthusiastically and also encourage their housemates. Studio 100 is of course the ideal partner to plant that seed in the world of children. And if Santa Claus also supports it, then we know that everything will turn out fine.’
Peter Coonen, CEO of Bebat: ‘Children are the future. How do we teach them that collecting batteries is important? Simply by making it fun from an early age and setting a good example. And with Studio 100 there? Then, just like their Studio 100 heroes, they also want to hand in their empty and/or discarded batteries. This is how we make a difference together. Because we recycle together, not only for nature, but also for each other.’
Hoofdpiet and Pakjespiet want to surprise Santa this year. Santa Claus hands out presents every year on his birthday, so now it’s his turn: they’re going to give him a present. Fortunately, Pakjespiet has brought along the ideal invention for this: the PROT machine. The Practical Recycle and Clean-up Transformation machine. You plug old toys into one part of the machine, and new toys come out the other end. Ideal for making the most beautiful presents, for good children and Sinterklaas. So the message is to collect broken toys. Hoofdpiet and Pakjespiet travel through the worlds of all kinds of Studio 100 figures to collect enough broken toys. But that turns out to be easier said than done. Will they get their gift ready for Santa in time? More info and tickets here (EM / Photo Studio 100)
