The first-ever “Carnival Playtime” event featuring fun activities and games inspired by the MY LITTLE PONY and TRANSFORMERS brands recently kicked off aboard Carnival Imagination and runs through September.

An expansion of the collaboration between Hasbro and licensee Carnival, the interactive, fun-for-all “Carnival Playtime” activities are patterned after popular MY LITTLE PONY and TRANSFORMERS characters and include midway-style games including Rainbow Dash’s cupcake toss, Knock out the Autobots and Target the Enemy, along with face-painting, prizes, music and more.

Character meet and greets are also featured, providing kids and parents alike with unforgettable photo opportunities with TRANSFORMERS characters Optimus Prime and BumbleBee, as well as MY LITTLE PONY characters Pinkie Pie and Twilight Sparkle.

A special screening of Transformers: Age of Extinction movie is also being shown on board, with all-new MY LITTLE PONY and TRANSFORMERS-inspired activities taking place in Camp Ocean creating special memories for younger cruisers.

“Carnival Playtime” are held on the Carnival Imagination’s three- and four-day cruises from Long Beach through the departure of Sept. 17.  Three-day cruises departing Thursdays call at Ensenada while four-day voyages departing Sundays visit Ensenada and Catalina Island.
