I think it’s wonderful to introduce the children of today to the colourful characters of Sesame Street where generations of youngsters were educated in identifying the alphabets, counting numbers, friendship and good family values through play and fun.

It was like reliving my childhood again when I was at R&F Mall JB to see the entertaining and interactive activities for children and to meet with live-size character mascots for Elmo and the Cookie Monster.

The main concourse of R&F Mall JB was transformed into a giant Sesame Street playland that features popular Sesame Street 3D characters like Elmo, the Cookie Monster, Bert and Ernie, and even Oscar the Grouch in his dustbin!

Recognize these familiar Sesame Street characters?
There is a giant inflatable playground where kids aged between five and 12 years may enjoy the slides and dive into a colourful ball pool.

Every weekend in June, visitors may look forward to meeting with Elmo and the Cookie Monster live-size characters at their appearances at 1pm, 3pm and 7pm and grab the opportunity for photos with these lovable mascots.

There are kids colouring activities to enjoy and exclusive Sesame Street merchandise on sale during this celebration month.

On Level One, located just next to the entrance to the CIQ Link Bridge, meet the largest Elmo inflatable display in South East Asia, who is ready for more photo opportunities.

“We are delighted to partner with Sesame Workshop in celebrating Sesame Street’s 50th anniversary this holiday season,” said R&F Mall JB Marketing Director, Daphne Tan.

“Sesame Street has been on air for half a century and we believe that this evergreen TV show will not only appeal to kids but also to adults who are young-at-heart,” she added.

R&F Mall JB, the first shopping mall opened by R&F Princess Cove Malaysia, officially opened its doors in March 2019.

The mall is strategically located close to the Singapore-Malaysia Customs Immigration Quarantine (CIQ) in JB and just one km away from the causeway that links Singapore and Malaysia.

The young-at-heart cannot resist a photo opportunity with Elmo and the Cookie Monster!
The CIQ Link Bridge is a fully sheltered and guarded 8-minute skywalk that connects R&F Mall to the CIQ checkpoint.

R&F Mall JB is located at Jalan Tanjung Puteri, 80300 Johor Baru, Johor.
