Kai! Lovely Mommies and my dear readers!
If you are parents to a 4-14 year old something, chances are that you have –
a) already been to KidZania /
b) are planning/
c) under coercion to do so ASAP!
But take my word for it, its worth your while! Oh and KAI is HI! in KidZania’s language (wink, wink).
KidZania Delhi/NCR. is the latest “IT” place to hang out in Delhi, especially Delhi under the age group 14 years. A 96,000 sq.ft. standalone structure that imitates working of a real city, KidZania is a mini city where kids are in charge.
Located in Noida, This mini township is easily connected to every part of the city and one can literally spend a day and more here. I recently took my 10 year old for our doze of fun and learning, basically a #ZuperDayatKidZania and she hasn’t stopped raving about it since! Its been over a week and given her short attention span, this has to be an achievement.
‘With more than 90 real life role-play activities including banking, job search, courier services, fire fighting, art, fashion designing, bakery, newsroom, radio station, hospital duty, social service, on stage or fighting crime on the streets as a police officer, each experience is crafted to empower and teach a child essential life skills such as financial literacy, teamwork, independence , problem solving and a lot more.
This real life role-play experience for the young ones, blends learning with entertainment and gives them the confidence to challenge themselves and inspire them to explore the world of opportunities.’
Kidzania has worked closely with real-world brands to create a city that is as realistic as possible. So you will see real names and brands. BIG BAZAAR, YES BANK, DHL, PEPPER FRY etc are some of the familiar names you shall see your child being employed in.A child is allowed to choose between occupations and activities through role-play, and learn about key values and life skills in the process. A stadium space and an archaeological site space are special to the KidZania Delhi NCR.
Thanks to KidZania, my little one has a little know how about having a resume, handling bank transactions, fire safety, printing press and what not! Aren’t the little joys of learning as you play so much more fun than pure theoretical knowledge?
Each activity takes up about 20-30 minutes so schedule a day to it, that’s what I would recommend and one word of caution to the parents- YOU STRICTLY WILL HAVE TO PLAY AUDIENCE. Its a city ONLY FOR KIDS and parents have nothing to do except eat maybe and revel in the glory of the set up and also their kid’s capabilities. Honestly I came back with a little more trust and satisfaction in my child’s abilities and am a little more proud of her knowledge and common sense now. Watching her learn to do her tasks independently, squandering to make enough money(her kidzos) to spend more on learning more…its surreal and beautiful.
I hope the pics do justice to this amazing kid’s township and the wonderland that it is. Get your first hand experience soonest. Your child shall come back enlightened and entertained..away from the gadgets and away from the routine.
KidZania is refreshing. Be there and you shall agree with me.
A happy Parent
