It seems like our city has been taken over by the tokidoki creatures this year. From a tokidoki pop-up café, to a tokidoki-themed cruise along Singapore River, to exclusive tokidoki merchandise at this year’s STGCC – we can’t get enough of the cute and funky Japanese characters.

Riding on the tokidoki wave, River Safari is introducing a month of maritime wonder this September, to celebrate the arrival of the tokidoki Mermicorno creatures to our shores. Teaming up with the Japanese lifestyle brand, River Safari will debut 10 life-sized Mermicorno sculptures, including three new additions to the Mermicorno family: Submarino, Jade and Fortuna. The unique and totally Instagrammable sculptures will be stationed at different points of the park.

These mermaid-unicorns are just the perfect magical companions to River Safari’s own resident mermaids – the manatees! Join the special Mermicorno Trail around the park to learn more about our manatees. Bring some of the magic home with you by shopping from the various tokidoki collectibles at the retail store. Want something more exclusive? Complete the trail, and you’ll stand a chance to win limited edition tokidoki x River Safari pins! Five different weekly designs (shown in the following image) will be available over the five weekends in September.

To witness the manatees in all their beauty and grace, head to the enormous aquarium they call home, the Amazon Flooded Forest. During the weekends of September, visitors can meet not just the adorable manatees there, though. In a mesmerising collision of myth and reality, mermaids will be swimming over to pay a special visit to the manatees, as well as the aquarium’s other marine creatures. Catch the 20-minute mermaid performances at scheduled timings on weekend afternoons. Scheduled tours will also be held at the Amazon Flooded Forest to satisfy all your curious questions about the fascinating manatees.

When you’ve fallen in love with the creatures – and who can blame you? – get up close and personal with them in their daily activities. On the Manatee Mania tour, visitors can feed the manatees and take part in their target training! Sign up at the River Safari Visitor Services Counter for this unique opportunity, and get your cameras ready for some amazing shots.

The River Safari activities are only available on the weekends and at scheduled timings. For the schedule and more information, visit the park’s official website.
