Kia hamsters

Yes, you’re completely right, that’s 2 human sized hamsters you’re looking at and, if you’re wondering what on earth they’re doing on my blog, read on and hopefully it’ll all make sense!

So Kia Cars got in touch to tell me about an event they’re running at Westfield Shopping Centre, Shepherds Bush, London, to promote their new Soul model.  In fact, they’re taking over the entire Westfield Atrium for the whole week.

But first of all, if you haven’t seen it already, I must just show you their current TV ad … it’s one of Dexter’s favourites.  OK, it’s MY favourite!

Kia’s ‘Ready to Roll’ event is very interactive and lets visitors participate and interact with Kia through a variety of activities.

Sounds good so far right?  They may have lost me slightly at the  ‘X-Box Kinect Health and Fitness Challenge’ (although that’s what Dexter is looking forward to) – but at the weekend, there’s a stand that includes a ‘Restyled Makeover Boutique’ – (for men and women) and Hershesons Boutique will be on hand to offer styling and fashion tips with make-up tutorials, a hair stylist and a fashion style expert.

I think I probably need all three.

There will also be a ‘Digital Graffiti Pod and Design Studio’ which will allow visitors to style their own Kia Soul, and a ‘Driving Experience’ with Kia Soul radio controlled racing cars.   Got a feeling we’ll be spending a lot of time doing that too!   But the one thing I’m really looking forward to is this … the ‘Power to Surprise Dream Chute’!  The name alone is amazing but it’s a chute which allows visitors to enter the Kia stand – on the ground floor, from the first floor – and then a laser system triggers a camera at the bottom of the chute allowing visitors to upload their pictures to their social media!   Now the only potential pitfall I can see with this is whether the girls can fit in, but there’s only one way to find out!

Dexter and I are going to go along this Saturday coming (9th August) so watch out for lots of photos of me looking equally silly and glamorous and follow the #ReadyToRoll hashtag!   If you’re around, and not too far away from Westfield London, why not come along?  We’ll be there for a few hours so it’ll be lovely to see you!
