Kidzania is an educational family entertainment facility which is a replica of a real city scaled down to kids’ size—with its own history, culture, language, and currency—and teaches kids the value of having jobs in the real world and giving back to the community.

Kids take a first crack at adulting at Kidzania Manila

Children can only aspire to what they know exists.

This is central to Kidzania and its Director of Education Dr. Ger Graus’ philosophy.

When you enter Kidzania, you enter a sprawling but kid-sized edutainment zone where children can explore and discover on their own while learning how to operate in the real world. It is a mini-metropolis, where the kids can fill roles in establishments such as a bank, a school, a hotel and more, while imbibing Kidzania’s culture, economy (it has its own currency – kidzos – that kids get paid with after fulfilling their tasks), and even language (say “Kai!” for “Hi!” and “ZanK-U!” for “Thank you!”).

The fun learning roles kids can take part in at kiddie-fied real-world establishments or brands include:

  • Actor or Street Performer (Star Magic – Acting Academy)
  • Artist or Student (National Bookstore – Art and Design Academy)
  • Pilot or Cabin Crew (Cebu Pacific – Aviation Academy)

Parents accompanying their kids won’t be bored either. They can hang out at the Parent’s Lounge where they can sip of some coffee as they watch TV or surf the net powered by SKYzone.

Hungry little ones can sate their appetites with the Belgian Waffle, Purfood Hotdogs, Goldilocks and McDonalds outlets inside the park.

And here’s something to spur you to visit Kidzania really soon: Until July 31, you can avail of an Unli-Pazz which allows a kid and an accompanying adult to enjoy a month of unlimited visits to Kidzania for only Php2,475. (You can view more details here.)

Kidzania is where kids can take a first fun glimpse at adulting.
