One day fun in Kidzania KL

We spent 1.5 hours queuing up to enter Kidzania despite buying tickets online. And spent the rest of 7+hours before they close in there!

Upon entering Kidzania, Noelle repeatedly says โ€˜this is SO real!!!๐Ÿ˜ต๐Ÿ˜ต๐Ÿ˜ต๐Ÿ˜ต๐Ÿ˜ตโ€™ while both hubby and I : โ€˜oh ๐Ÿ’ฉ look at the number of people here!!๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑโ€™

We sort of regret coming here upon seeing the queue at the entrance but we bought the tickets already – no u-turn or burnt. ๐Ÿคญ๐Ÿ˜† but at the end of the day, seeing both Noelle and Nikki enjoyed so much; surely worth the wait. I think it was also a good choice not to come on one of the Sundays we initially wanted to – or else, too tiring for Noelle – the next school day.

Summary of roles and things they did:

1. Journalist (only Noelle)

Journalist/reporter

๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„

๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ Coincidentally, the first role play Noelle chose was journalist! ๐Ÿคญ๐Ÿคฃ But I think she was rather clueless in what she needed to do. I followed her around with the other players – I asked her what she needs to do; she says โ€˜dunoโ€™๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜† Luckily there was this elder girl who guided the whole team. They found what they need to do – I.e. asking one supervisor some questions, and jot the answers down. It turned out that I wrote the answers for Noelle because they need to be fast – and I canโ€™t be spelling for her one by one! ๐Ÿคญ (at that point of time, I felt like I am one of the participants ๐Ÿ˜‚)

Back at the newsroom, they were required to key in some information onto the given layout. Noelle struggled as she has never been exposed to this. While we were waiting outside, it is enlightening to see how Noelle asked or the other girl willingly helped Noelle in completing the task.

2. Jewellers

Jeweller

For this, they have to pay 6 Kidzos each and they get to bring back their โ€˜jewelleryโ€™ ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

Nikki managed to attempt half of it; and then Noelle helped!

Noelle: Mum, you know how many beads we can put in?

Me: ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

Noelle: 16

3. Traffic police

4. Making of moon sand

Kidzania is having Science and Space programme. Noelle wanted to take part in this making of moon sand!

Just mix sand, corn flour, water and food colouring.

Ratio of sand and corn flour seems like 2:1

They get to bring home the moon sand.

No kidzo earned and paid for this.

5. Disco lounge visitors (hubby and I love this most ๐Ÿคญ๐Ÿคฃ cos we can be seated on the sofa while waiting – and they easily get 42 kidzos in total)

6. Window cleaners

7. Medical assistants in endoscopy room

The place was covered so I asked Noelle what they did – briefly: a โ€˜fakeโ€™ body lying down, and then mei mei was told to hold the bodyโ€™s hand. Then another participant started crying, so she took over the job of putting liquid injection. They also look through the โ€˜microscopeโ€™ and saw inside the body. Noelle also said she looked around and found some other people were bathing the baby – I think she saw โ€˜nurseryโ€™ in another room. I didnโ€™t expect Noelle telling me she wanted to try this because she has this โ€˜phobiaโ€™ of seeing injuries – in television. ๐Ÿ˜‚

8. Beautician and customer

9. Shopper and cashier (they did both respectively)

10. Delivery man – courier

Courier service ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

Noelle: Whatโ€™s courier?

Me: There….like papa ALwAYS buy things, then Mr Postman come deliver ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜†

But they were told to collect parcels instead; Noelle did a great job by remembering the script and has confidence to approach the people in charge.

Nikki, as most role plays, has been a helper. It was great they two can pair in most activities! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

11. Petrol pump attendants

Although they seem like did โ€˜fewโ€™, after listing down – well, 11 is not few though there are really more to role play! They repeatedly says they like being cashier the most! ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿคฃ (all choices made by Noelle – Nikki just followed)

I do think Kidzania is a good place for kids to learn about real life – how things works, etc. One thing for sure – Noelle did learn about journalism – though she was clueless on what she was doing initially.

I think we will be back some other day – we told Noelle โ€˜after we save money, ok?โ€™ – and she said she prefer Kidzania than Disneyland and our recent beach holiday (but hor, she very short sighted one laaaaa๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜†…only papa heart ๐Ÿ’”- โ€˜bring so far, drive so long, prefer Kidzania๐Ÿ˜’โ€™)

Norrah didnโ€™t get to play anything in Kidzania; but she patiently waits….Cos she had a good time wandering around too! ๐Ÿคฃ
