Instagrammable Fairytale Rooms with 22 Stories

"Another OOTD opportunity!" 

Yep, that's my reaction whenever I stepped into every insta-worthy room at 22 Stories. While kids were excitedly queueing and waiting for the storytelling to commence, I was grasping every single opportunity for photos. 

Suitable for both the young and young at heart (and those who just wants to take photos), 22 Stories provides a brand new immersive theatrical experience from ANDSOFORTH Jr. With 4 lands and 22 unique rooms filled with wonders, families can enjoy an interactive adventure as each classic story comes to life right in front of your eyes. 


It was a free-and-easy experience and you have to queue for the different available showtimes of each individual room. 

We just randomly stepped into an available room (Genie) as we didn't know what to expect. Well, it was underwhelming, sad to say. But to be fair, it was a one-off situation partially due to the lack of participants entering the room. Since it was an interactive experience with minimal photo opportunities, things can get a little awk...ward, especially when there was only ONE kid inside.

BUT WAIT.

Starting the magical adventure with the least interesting room doesn't seem so bad after all, as our excitement level increased each time we visited the next one!


With familiar characters from classical fairytales such as Snow White, Jack & The Beanstalk, Princess & The Pea and many more, every room is bursting with nostalgia as I recalled the storylines that I've read on books as a little kid.

If you're more interested in taking photos for the gram, one tip is to enter the rooms during the breaks between showtimes. We stumbled into one of the rooms to realise that it was completely empty and it was a breeze to take the perfect shot.

My brother actually brought along a DSLR, but we found that certain shots were better with our phone cameras instead.


Without having to travel to another country to visit Disneyland, kids can now come up close with Princesses such as Snow White! Both our ages are definitely off the charts for such exhibitions, but no doubt it is a great bonding family activity for those with young kids. 

I can totally imagine bringing my little kid to such events in the future, and watching him/her with brimming wide smiles as they explore around. (not that it's happening anytime soon though!) 




There are many stunning backgrounds for photo opportunities if you're the elder sister/brother of the family and don't find interest in any of the storytelling tales. Just look at this gorgeous backdrop filled with paper crafted red roses! 


Or how about this Moroccan inspired mosaic printed wall?








And wow, it was so much fun playing in this "Little Mermaid" themed ball pit. Can't miss out on the slow-mo and boomerang actions! 



22 Stories is a magical fun-filled exhibition that retells fairytale stories from a lively perspective. It's a great bonding weekend activity for parents and kids as they are able to experience real-life characters from story classics, which helps to expand kids' imagination beyond their limit.

Thank you 22 Stories for allowing me to relive my childhood once again!
