Dream job for kids: make their own chocolate!
Kuwait: KidZania Kuwait, the exciting kid-sized metropolis, has officially launched the first chocolate factory for children in Kuwait, in partnership with Kinder Chocolate. Children visiting the Kinder Chocolate Factory in KidZania can now indulge in a thrilling choc-filled experience and enjoy making their own Kinder Chocolate bars.
The Kinder Chocolate Factory in KidZania is the only place in Kuwait where children can go through the full process of chocolate making, and learn about something that they love while having tons of fun.
Visitors to the Kinder Chocolate Factory will learn how Kinder chocolate is made under the guidance of the chocolate experts at the factory. Inspired by Kinder’s slogan “Play, Discover, Learn,” children are guaranteed the best chocolate learning experience, from choosing the raw ingredients, to creating the perfect mixture to blend and mold, to finally packaging a bar of mouth-watering delight, to become the best chocolate makers in town.
Fernando Medroa, Vice President of Leisure and Entertainment at M.H. Alshaya Co. said: “We are thrilled to join hands with Kinder Chocolate, one of the world’s most exciting chocolate companies.
“All children love chocolate. Now they can not only enjoy eating it, but can also experience how it is made – step by step – and finally enjoy a chocolate bar that they have created on their own. This is what we’re all about: maximize children’s learning experiences by continuously providing a platform where they can learn while having fun,” Medroa added.
Guido Ferralasco, General Manager of Ferrero Gulf, said: “At Kinder, we care for the joyful growth of children to help make a better world, as a happy child today will be a better adult tomorrow. So we believe that by supporting parents to ensure that their children grow happily, we make our small contribution in making the world a better place.
“We share KidZania’s vision of igniting the hearts and minds of kids everywhere, by empowering them and helping them see how they contribute to building their own future,” Ferralasco added.
Much more than a children’s museum or family entertainment center, KidZania takes interactive entertainment and learning to an entirely new level by combining role playing with real life. KidZania creates a children-centric city experience designed to educate and inspire 4 to 14-year olds – from arriving at the airport, to visiting a city center to exploring the city streets. We replicate the real world in a safe and self-contained over 7,000 square meter children-sized city. As in the real world, children choose activities – such as being a police officer, doctor, journalist or a shopkeeper – and earn money which they can then spend or save. KidZania operates just like a real city complete with buildings, paved streets, vehicles, a functioning economy and recognizable destinations in the form of “establishments” sponsored and branded by leading multi-national and local brands. The facilities are designed to educate through experience, fostering the development of life skills, but from a children perspective – it’s all about fun.
KidZania, Inc., headquartered in Mexico, is privately held. This award-winning concept is recognized globally for its unique blend of entertainment and education for children. The first KidZania opened in Mexico City in 1999. There are eighteen other locations including, Monterrey (Mexico); Tokyo, Jakarta, Koshien, Lisbon, Dubai, Seoul, Kuala Lumpur, Cuicuilco (Mexico) and Santiago, Bangkok, Mumbai and Cairo. To date, more than 20 million children and parents have visited the facilities globally. The trajectory continues with more facilities in development, including locations in Doha, Manila, Singapore, Moscow, London and the United States.
KidZania Kuwait is a (7,000 square meter) facility, located in The Mall – The Avenues and is operated by M.H. Alshaya Co.
