Role playing is an embedded behavior in children. They perform it naturally without previous learning or adult explanations. In addition to being a natural tendency, role playing is a universal activity that crosses geographic and cultural boundaries. The KidZania concept has taken this enduring behavior and elevated it to its maximum expression to help children be themselves and to be with others, understand reality, establish a relationship with the world they live in, and build their identity and look for their autonomy.
A significant characteristic of the KidZania concept is its ability to entertain children within an educational context that replicates the complexities of real life and instills participants with important virtues such as honesty, selflessness and generosity. Edutainment (education + entertainment) refers to the educational potential of fun in KidZania.
The KidZania Story
It began as a spark that was seeded by the desire from kids to see the world function as a better place. Together, they built a world full of opportunities where all children could assert themselves and be responsible. These kids then defined their fundamental rights, and penned down to paper the Declaration of Independence as a proclamation of their independence from adults. By acting upon their hopes and dreams, a nation called KidZania was born – a land of kids that would span the globe!
Tied together as family and friends, the creation of Urbano, Vita, Bache, Chika, and Beebop as ‘Rightskeepers’ comes from the belief that KidZania’s moral and social values will always be cared for and remembered by kids as they get ready to take on the grown up world. These KidZania values are embedded in the Rightskeepers’ personalities, and through their charm and vitality, they will instill the city’s fundamental beliefs in children of KidZania.
Urbano’s House is an area specifically built for children aged up to 3 years old with various activities that will keep them entertained for hours. Toddlers can enjoy storytelling and puppet shows, making their own meals, jumping on an inflatable bed, or having fun in a soft ball bathtub!
While children enjoy the KidZania experience, accompanying parents can choose to observe from outside the establishments, or go to The Parents Lounge. Located on the top floor, the lounge provides a quiet reading area, computers with free Wi-Fi Internet, a cinema screening room, and a coffee shop.
