A NEW Merlin’s Magic Spaces project has launched in Asia, at the Children’s Hospital of Shanghai!


Jan 2018

Merlin’s Magic Wand and Changfeng Ocean World have teamed up with the hospital to transform an underused, depleted play area into a magical underwater themed fun zone.

The Children's Hospital of Shanghai is a paediatric hospital and specialises in leading-edge pediatric clinical care, healthcare, education, research, and rehabilitation. They have approximately 28,000 patients at any given time. The hospital has a children’s rehabilitation centre which provides therapy for children with hearing, visual, mental health, physical and psychological conditions.
Helping and caring for such a wide range of abilities means that having a suitable space for the children to relax, unwind and play is very important to their recovery.

Changfeng Ocean World has been working alongside the hospital for many years now, taking the magic of Merlin to the children who need it the most. The new play area is an expansion of the unique atmosphere, fun, and magic that the Ocean World has to offer.

Peter Hu, GM of Changfeng Ocean World states: “Today, Changfeng Ocean World has officially opened its first Merlin Magic Space in the children’s hospital. This magical room is an extension of the same spirit but instead of visiting our magical ocean world, we have brought our ocean world to the children.”
From books and toys to digital interactive games, this newly renovated room has everything the children need to feel like they are in another world. Distraction therapy plays a big part in the children’s recovery and what better way to be distracted than being transported under the sea.

The team from Ocean World will continue to work closely with the hospital, visiting on a regular basis to spread the magic of Merlin to the children by reading, face painting and playing games in the newly opened play room.
