Kidzania, Jakarta Review

Playground we have been to many, but Kidzania is indeed one of its kind. It is not only a fun place for the children but at the same time let the children get a feel of the adult working environment. Lyn and El were often puzzled with the concept of 'working' and no matter how we explained, they can't seem to get it quite right. This is just the right place for them!

Upon entry, one is given a map of the city, and a 50 Kidzos (the official currency of Kidzania) paycheck.



First thing first, bank in the cheque to get some Kidzos cash!


Oh how I wish these are real.



With the cash, one can spend on the taxi rides, bus rides, getting driving license etc.. To earn more money, they can 'work' on over 70 different professions. Dentist, firefighter, policeman, factory worker... just to name a few. 



Now who wants to be a dentist? The children first went through a educational clip about oral hygiene and now doing their practical. We were surprised at how realistic everything are. The children are supposed to 'dig' out some dirt/plaque from the teeth and then clean the teeth by spraying water. Quite a task ya!


Bee-do-bee-do-bee-do, the little fire-fighters are working hard spraying water.


The trio window-cleaning-crew were as busy as bees.


Making sandwich by spreading chocolate, cut the bread and make a bear (or panda?) imprint on the sandwich.


Look good?


You can buy some magic props here, using real money though.


And maybe you will be allowed to perform here.


Dancing with flags I guess?


You will need at least 2 children to play this, one as cashier and another one as shopper. The more people the merrier. 


To get yourself a license, you will need to get a body check-up. Upon completion you will be issued this slip.


Simply bring the slip to Honda and...


Tadah! Your driving license is ready!


You can now drive around, and pump some petrol.


The little make-up artist is serious at work! The staff told me those are just baby powder, so no worries.


Chocolate factory! Simply sprinkle some nuts at the bottom of the chocolate mold, pour the melted chocolate over, cool down the chocolate in the fridge, and it is time to enjoy the delicious chocolate!


At the end of the session, there are still many other professions that we hadn't get to try. Here are only some of it:






Kidzania
Pacific Place L6 - 601 Sudirman Central Business District
Jl. Jend Sudirman Kav. 52-53
Jakarta Selatan 12190 - Indonesia
