When’s the last time you were able to dive straight into a ball pit? For most of us, it was at a first grade birthday party, but for me, it was just a few weeks ago.
A couple CanCulture editors and I took a trip to see the highly talked about exhibit, The7, an installation geared towards Torontonians who are battling cabin fever during the cold winter months. We weren’t disappointed with the bright backdrops or giant props and we were snapping insta-worthy pictures in no time.
Hidden away on the seventh floor of the Hudson’s Bay on Queen St., The7 consists of eight wildly wacky rooms, each with a different joyful theme, for anyone to come and have a fun mid-winter photoshoot. The rooms range from the absurd to the trippy, but all of them are sure to give you some great content for your Instagram feed.
With so much variation, there is sure to be a room that fits even the most rigid Instagram theme. There are unicorns, dinosaurs, giant cake, flamingo legs coming out of the ceiling and much, much more.
While our trip was fun, you’ll have to be prepared for crowded rooms and patiently waiting for strangers to walk through your shot, which can be a little frustrating. Once you claim your stake though, you’ll be on your way to some picture perfect shots.
