New Hang-Out Place for Children: KIDZANIA

Yes, this is definitely the talk of the town now. Kidzania, located at Curve IPC. You wont go wrong as you will see a "crashed" aeroplane just right outside the building.

Since they are very new, they were (still are) running promotions to bring in the crowd. So I took the opportunity to sign up, and WAHHHHHHH I got 2 free tickets. THANK YOU SO MUCH.

The sign-up was very cute. They wanted to know what is my kid's ambition. Instead of me, giving the answer, I asked my kid. This was what he said "I want to open 100-yen shop and sell many snackies (snacks) to people" and indeed, I entered the same sentence.

On 3rd March (Sat), the kid woke up on his own, got dressed on his own and off we went to Kidzania. We arrived slightly after 9am. We got ourselves check-in, then off to McD for a quick bite before boarding :)

After the entire event, I asked the kid what he liked best and he said he wants to be a Mechanic and Petrol Fuel-Man now :( I was actually psycho-ing to be a Dentist or Pilot as they earned more salary.  Will bring the kid again to this place. Maybe when his cousins are back or 6 yrs old.

Check-in counter.
Kidzania's concept is to replicate the real life scenario.

Security Tag. 
Parents with children below 8 years old must accompany the child inside the centre. 
The parents will then be tagged too

 We received the boarding ticket, 
cheque of 50 kidzo (money) + map

Checking-out where to go 


 Cashing out his 50 kidzo (cheque to cash)
The security stopped me (parent) 
and said "No parent inside please"

First Stop: He chose to be a construction man 
(following his love for Handy-Mandy) 

Second Stop: Painter and he can associate very well cos Nippon Paint was the brand 
and he saw Bloppy, a gift I won recently. 
So I believe when he wants to paint next time, 
he will surely think of Nippon Paint first 

3rd Stop: Dentist. I like this alot of there was no other kids there. 
So he got 100% attention from the 2 teachers 

4th Stop: Surgeon. Although he met the recommended age, 
but the "teacher" informed he was too young to understand. 
In fact, I asked him a few times if he like being a surgeon, he just shook his head.

5th Stop: Pilot. He said, I fly by KLCC!!! I wonder if its true.

6th Stop: Being a car mechanic. He got to start engine, put oil, water, etc

Last stop: Fuel-man. To put petrol

Around 2+, the little fella cannot take it anymore and wanted to leave. So we left. It was definitely a whole new experience and we still talk about it at home. Before we left, I asked the kid if he wanted to spend his earnings and he said, keep in the bank. So we deposited back all the cash and got an ATM card in return for our next visit.
