At some point in our lives, we’ve probably encountered The Adventures of Tintin in bookstores and on our television screens – and its historical and heroic stories often remind us of childhood fantasies we’ve always wanted to come to life.
Well, let’s just say my imaginative self yearns for things like these, even if I’m already 21 years old, lol. I remember watching Tintin in my younger years, and as I got older and embraced my OCness for design, I started appreciating the beauty of how Hergé illustrated his characters. And and I got to visit the original location where Tintin was based from during my trip to Belgium last year – which is why I got more ecstatic when Fully Booked invited me over to the #TintinShopMNL launch last June!
The Tintin Shop is located at the ground floor of Fully Booked’s BGC branch, which is my favorite – obviously because the titles here are more complete than the other branches (+ there’s Starbucks and the 4th floor aka art books floor is my favorite!).

We were greeted with Tintins – yup, lots of them! There were scheduled tours throughout the event for guests to know more about Tintin and his adventures.
They have a huge selection of Tintin merchandise – from postcards, prints, figurines, shirts, mugs and all things book lovers will definitely go crazy for.
They also have the complete collection of comic books available. More reasons to read and catch up on the series!
Spent some time trying out the activities as well – one of which is a Fold Your Own Snowy – super cute!
Plus points for the adventure themed set-up at the mini buffet area! It really captured the feel of Tintin’s adventures.
Stumbled upon my high school friend Nicole as well, 1/2 of The Twins Read! Do check out their blog for YA reviews or if you’re looking for something new to read.

Got to spend the night meeting new people and catching up on old friends – always a good time talking about life, food and of course, adventures. ;)
