KidZania Kuala Lumpur 8th anniversary in “City of Infinite Possibilities"

Happy Birthday, KidZania Kuala Lumpur! Mayor Shahrul Nizar Ahmad (centre) officiates KidZania Kuala Lumpur’s 8th Anniversary celebration in “A City of Infinite Possibilities”.

It’s time for infinite fun and madness! Celebrating its 8th anniversary this year, award-winning indoor family centre, KidZania Kuala Lumpur is committed to making the city a place of infinite possibilities, one that will inspire and challenge children to dream big.

The enthusiastic ‘zupervisors’ of KidZania Kuala Lumpur made sure the children and their families had oodles of fun with an exciting selection of infinite-themed activities, edutaining workshops, entertaining performances and parade, where the children got to discover their potential and dreams to the fullest.

Four main activities and three workshops were featured around various establishments within the city, exclusively for visitors today. The main activities include a Tealive Infinity Cups Challenge and Nips Straw Challenge by Kodomo Lion to improve the children’s movement and accuracy. Both activities are a form of sensory play to develop and improve their gross and fine motor skills. Meanwhile, kids had the opportunity to join the Colouring Contest activity run by the Malaysian Palm Oil Council (MPOC), and participate in the Infinity Bracelet Race where kids won prizes by making bracelets in an infinity shape.

The infinity shape also featured in the three workshops. The Infinity Tuna Wrap workshop by Mission Foods saw the the kids making infinity-shaped wraps while Faber-Castell’s Infinity Colouring Party workshop enabled kids to use their creativity in colouring their own version of the infinity symbol. Last but not least, the DIY Infinity Mask workshop resulted in creative infinity-shaped masks.

Said Shahrul Nizar Ahmad, Mayor of KidZania Kuala Lumpur, “It’s been eight year since we were established. Since then we’ve seen increased visitors year on year, making us a much sought-after family destination in the country. We have also been certified as a co-curricular partner with the Ministry of Education and worked with numerous industry partners and collaborators over the years, for only one goal – to ultimately equip children with an understanding of the real world while empowering them with a variety of development skills, from creativity, financial literacy, critical thinking and the ability to dream and dream big!

“Most children have dreams of what they want to be when they grow up. It is so important to promote that positivity in encouraging kids to chase after the path they dream of. We always desire to motivate the children to dream big! At KidZania, we advocate the ‘Learn Life Today’ approach by offering real-life job experiences in different industries to develop important life skills and values. We are committed to help the kids broaden their horizons, recognising and identifying the path or things they are good at. We hope to turn every child’s dream into reality at KidZania,” concluded Shahrul.
Moving forward, KidZania Kuala Lumpur aims to regularly roll out new activities and continuously collaborate with more partners in creating additional career opportunities for the children to experience first-hand.

KidZania Kuala Lumpur’s 8th anniversary event was made possible with the help of collaborative partners which include Faber-Castell, Kodomo Lion, Mission Foods, Tealive and Malaysian Palm Oil Council (MPOC). As part of the celebration, KidZania Kuala Lumpur will also be presenting special prizes from the collaborative partners to the kids after winning the challenges and contests.
