'Open House: Tromarama for Kids' opened last Saturday 23rd of May at the NGV and we loved it!! Perfect timing by the NGV for those winter days coming up! 'The Tromarama team built a house inside the NGV Gallery and everyone is invited to play. Inspired by ordinary homes, this one is a little extraordinary'. We definitely agree with that statement!
When you arrive at the exhibition, the house is covered in different wooden panels and televisions showing fun videos. Little Miss' favourite video is of a little girl playing with her cat. Once you walk across the giant doormat, you are invited to enter the house through the bathroom where even a toilet sink and toilet have been installed!
The bathroom tub has been setup with toys that children can use to make their stop-motion videos. The next room is a bedroom with walls covered in pillows, a comfy bed and lots of different stop-motion setups for little ones to use to make their own video. Little Miss started making her own video pretty much straight away and used a little hippo as a prop. Little ones have to move the prop slowly whilst taking pictures of each move and then play the video with different soundtracks etc. You can then share your video by sending it to your email.
The next room after the bedroom is the garden which is colourful and has lots of fun and interactive setups. Little ones can record their voice at different spots in the garden and listen back for a surprise. There is also a pond, a floral mural and a barking dog in his kennel!
You are then invited to break some moves on the dining room dance floor. Little Miss was so obsessed making her little stop-motion videos that we had to bypass the dance floor and kitchen and go straight back to the bathroom where she made a few more! Her dad also enjoyed making a few funny ones so it was fun for the whole family in the end.
Little Miss was definitely hooked by the time we left Open House: Tromarama! This last pic below is of little Miss making her dinosaur stop-motion video. So much fun! Thanks Tromarama and the NGV!
