Five little friends -Hugg, Happy, Fold, C-bot and Vizzle- live at the Juliana Children’s Hospital. They help the children feel that they are not alone. Every character has its own personality, and so there is always someone who tags along, distracts the children, makes them laugh or provides information. Over 4000 m2 of unique graphic wallpaper covers the walls of the corridors, waiting areas and treatment rooms in a magical world of sun, sea & sand. The walls are literally brought to life by moving projections and interactive animations. In the corridor to the operating room, the most nerve-racking place of the hospital, our five little friends walk along to reduce the stress. And when the children wake up in the recovery room, they are there too! The lift is another magical place. An animation in the porthole shows the children where they are: under water (ground floor), on the beach (first floor) or in the air (second floor). At playtime, they can visit the life-size play ship, the beach houses or the lighthouse. The adventure continues in the Ronald McDonald House on the top floor. Children can fly to fantasy worlds in the cockpit of the airship.
