Pick ‘n Pay’s Stikeez are Splashing back into Action!
[Partner Content] 25 OCT 2016

Oh dear. Those hit squishy toys from Pick ‘n Pay that so enthralled the kids so last year are back… and this time they’re rising up from the depths!

Right. Same story as last year, if you head out and do your shopping at Pick ‘n Pay then for every R150 spent, you will receive one free Stikeez figurine.

This time around there are 24 sea-themed monsters/Stikeez to collect, and just as before, they come in sealed pods, so you never know who will pop up next.

In addition to the toys which no doubt your kids will now beg you incessantly for, there is also a free app available on both the iPhone and Android platforms.

And yes, just like last year, we are already sitting on a mountain of these things. One of the perks when you work at a guest house and pretty much have to shop every day!

Also: Available at Pick ‘n Pay from 24 October for eight weeks, or while stocks last.

Hasbro’s Monopoly, which has now celebrated its 81st brand birthday, has been enjoyed by over a billion people worldwide and now South Africans will have the opportunity to “own” their piece of this beautiful country.

Ever fancied purchasing Kruger Park or Kimberly’s Big Hole or daydreamed of building a hotel on Cape Town’s Boulders Beach? Monopoly Mzansi could make these dreams come true – just make sure you have enough Mzansi moolah in the bank, and a handy ‘get out of jail free card’ in your stash… especially for when you land on a friend’s property and the rent is due.

Over the past few years numerous regional country versions of Monopoly have been produced and to date the game is licensed in 103 countries, with Monopoly Mzansi being the latest addition.

The special localised Mzansi edition features 4 transport hubs and 22 landmarks.

Excitingly, the newest transport hub to make it on board is the Sandton Gautrain station. V&A Waterfront and Table Mountain scooped the most expensive spots followed by Boulders Beach, Chapman’s Peak Drive and Kirstenbosch Botanical Garden. Other locations highlight South Africa’s natural heritage with the Big Hole and Addo Elephant Park making it on board.

Additional beautiful nature landmarks highlighted on the Monopoly Mzansi board include The Cradle of Humankind and St. Francis Bay with Durban Beach front (The Golden Mile), Florida Road and uShaka Marine World also joining the in the fun.
