Ryland and I were excited to try out KidZania in London, one of LittleBird’s many partners. Kidzania have 24 centres worldwide and offer kids the opportunity to role play in adult jobs, earning and spending kidZos currency.
KidZania is designed as a miniature city, with buildings, shops, theatres, roads and even vehicles. Situated in London’s Westfield Shopping Centre (close to Shepherd’s Bush station), KidZania London has activities ranging from making chocolate, to flying a plane, being a dentist and presenting a show on Al Jazeera!
At check in, kids get an electronic wristband so parents can track their activities, plus 50 KidZos to spend (make sure your child has a pocket or bag to keep these safe!). A session is designed to be four hours long, with the kids expected to try between 5 and 8 activities in that time. Some activities have to be paid for with KidZos, some are free, and for some of them your child will earn KidZos. If your child is 8 or older, they can be left on their own in KidZania – while you enjoy some quality adult time in Westfield!
As Ryland has just turned 8, this was the perfect time for us to visit. On the way to London, we looked at the website and he made a list of the activities he most wanted to do. On arrival he did the Cadbury chocolate making, the flight attendant and the drumming academy. The Fire and Police service were popular, but Ryland wasn’t keen to do those (I did notice that younger kids were excited about the ‘dressing up’ aspect of these jobs!). For active kids, you could play cricket at the sports Stadium, climb through air conditioning pipes or up buildings, and the Let’s Dance pop up disco looked fun.
After taking a few photos I decided to leave Ry for a while whilst I popped out shopping – he felt a real sense of independence being able to explore on his own and make his own decisions. Although when I returned to find him window cleaning, I couldn’t help but laugh: ‘…but Mum, I earned 12 KidZos for doing it!’ . KidZos can be spent in the shop at the exit (Ry bought a banana scented pencil with 30 of his) – or they can be used to open an account at the KidZania Bank!
I asked what his favourite activity was, and he said that being a DJ on Capital FM was brilliant – he was excited that he got to introduce a Dua Lipa song!
