Merlin’s Magic Wand Foundation teamed up with SEA LIFE at Mall of America to complete the 6th Merlin’s Magic Space in the USA. The highly interactive themed therapy room was installed at GiGi’s Playhouse Twin Cities.

Gigi’s Playhouse is a network of Down Syndrome Achievement Centers, working towards the goal of empowering families and achieving lasting acceptance for individuals with Down Syndrome. The Playhouse offers free therapeutic and educational programming to individuals with Down syndrome, regardless of skill level or ability to pay.

The new Merlin’s Magic Space will be explored by over 150 families each week and includes an interactive submarine, jellyfish hideaway, magnetic portholes and colour changing bubble tubes. Blue light features, wave machines, and lifelike graphics help to put the final touches on this immersive, underwater lounge and play experience!

“We are so thankful for the partnership with Merlin’s Magic Wand and SEA LIFE at Mall of America for creating this incredible space that will impact so many families at GiGi’s Playhouse” commented Kristen Sweet, Site Manager.
