My husband and I love seeing our kids’ happy, simple lang naman gusto nila eh yung makapag bonding kaming family while playing around and I know that the best way to teach them is through play. Kaya we make sure that we spend more time with them everyday especially during weekends.
We also allow our kids to use Ipad everyday for 1 hour only, yes 1 hour lang (8pm – 9pm) because that’s the time na kakain ako, magluluto ng babaunin namin the following day etc. #MeTime should I say. Anyway, our panganay saw the commercial of KidZania Manila while browsing the videos in youtube and requested us to visit this place soon, super na curious ang bagets and because of this, my husband decided to visit KidZania Manila on his birthday. We used our vacation leave and spend our time with the kiddos, Yes! Kaming 4 lang and this is very challenging for us, 2 kids in tow is not easy kaya we make sure that we have full of energy that day.  
KidZania Manila is one of our bucket lists to visit with our kids as we heard lots of positive feedback about this place however upon checking to their website, children below 3 years old and 11 months are not allowed to try role-playing activities. Good thing we got a great deal at deal grocer that offers Adult Day Pass and Toddler Day Pass which is valid from Tuesday to Friday only. Another blessing in disguise is during our plan trip, they offer “Toddler Time” meaning there are some activities / role-play establishments that has special offer for toddlers only (2 - 3 years old and 11 months during the time of visit) as it was based on the key developmental milestones of children through the general ages and stages approach. . Yehey! Pwede mag role-play si Rhaine!
If you are going to use the deal grocer voucher, you need to make a reservation at least one day before your prefer visit. Every Monday, KidZania Manila is closed and since we decided to visit on Tuesday, walang nasagot nung tumatawag kami. My husband told me to email their customer service about the situation and I’m so happy that they replied promptly.
KidZania Manila is located at Park Triangle in North 11th Avenue BGC. It is so easy to locate using Waze app, there are plenty of parking slots inside the building so you don’t need to worry about this. Since we went there on my husband’s birthday which falls on a weekday, the price is much cheaper and time allotted is longer, the place is open from 9am – 4pm.
After passing through the security checkpoint, we go through a small hallway and emerge in the boarding area, which looks like Cebu Pacific's airport ticket counters. This is where we surrender our vouchers in exchange of boarding pass. We also got a check for 50 KidZos (the official currency that can be used for paying for some activities inside KidZania), which we can encash at the BPI inside KidZania.


Kidzania Manila, here we come!

You and your child will also both be given an RFID security bracelet. Your child's bracelet will be matched with yours. At each activity station, before their cycle starts, the kids have to check in at the station using their RFID bracelets. (For the toddler time, the guardian/parent will also need to check in and check out at the station.)

Employees of KidZania Manila will always greet you “Kai”, as this is how they say “Hi” here. Nice db.  The place is fully air-conditioned, clean and secured, for me this is more than just a theme park, this mini city is really safe for kids to explore and pick up life skills along the way. This is truly where learning is made fun and where children are encouraged to discover their passions and interests.
Ian and I agreed that we need to supervise our kids separately, meaning he will take care of Rhian while I’m in-charge to Rhaine. For toddlers (2 to 3 and 11 months old) are welcome to play here in KidZania Manila as they have two toddler - designated areas at the Mezzanine level and since we they have toddler time the day we visited, Rhaine was able to try and enjoy a wide range of specially crafter activities exclusive to them on selected time (visitors aged 4-17 years old will not be allowed to enter or participate in these toddler activities at the given time from 9-1pm), of course it is a must for one adult companion to be with the toddler at all time to be able to join an activity.

They handed us a Toddler Journey Card in which we need to complete through the form of stamps (12 stamps) and we can only get stamp if the toddler has accomplished a task during the activity. Once the toddlers completed the 12 stamps, they have a special gift / token that can be redeem from the Department Store.
My kids are a little bit apprehensive at the start, maybe because they were overwhelmed with the beautiful place but eventually they enjoyed the activities here.  So let me tour you in this magical place.

First stop is the Bank (BPI), this is where the kids can learn to cash a check and open their own personal bank account, which comes with an ATM card, and start saving their kidZos to gain financial awareness and learn about the importance of saving. They may also work as a Banker and help Clients with their transactions.
Good Job, Rhian for your hard work!
As soon as we received the KidZos, Rhian and her Daddy start their amazing tour on Mezzanine Floor while Rhaine and I on the other hand tried the activities on the Ground Floor. The kids were given an orientation before boarding to their mission / work.  Take note of these guys, adult can’t join the fun / activity, strictly no using of cellphones, tables or any electronic device while inside the establishment. You are also not allowed to take photos inside the activity area. Toddlers will not receive a check or kidZos. Role-play activities are for kids 4 – 17 years old only (except for the scheduled toddler time).

Here are the establishments that we visited and got the 12 stamps within the allotted time.

Supermarket (Healthy Options)
Courier Service (LBC)
Construction Site | Car Design and Leadership (Honda)
Music Studio (Star Music)
Acting Academy (Star Magic)
Product Lab (Pascual)
Since the toddler games are very limited and Rhaine already finished all her task she still enjoyed the kids room with dolls, kitchen, etc. at RightZKeepers’ House . Rhaine is so happy to be in this place, it is designed like a kid-sized house with a kitchen, living room, walk-in closet, and soft-play bedroom.
Here in KidZania, children are given the opportunity to grow up to change the world for the better. The place really teaches the children on how to interact with other kids and learn the value of work. I was surprised that my 2-year old and 4-year old daughters do the task on their own.
There were uniforms and props for each job they tried. The instructors are great and very accommodating too. Here’s my little dalaga doing her given task. Again, no picture taking allowed inside.

Hospital: ER
R&D Center
Bottling Plant
Cookie Factory | Clean Energy Center
Bakeshop
Gas Station
Fire Station
There are few food choices in the area so we had Mcdo for lunch and ate hotdog and chips while waiting for their turn. There are lots of customer lounge around the area where you can relax, the comfort rooms are clean and well-maintained

This is one of their lounges where we ate our free popcorn and relax for few hours.
Enjoy na enjoy ang mga bagets kakatakbo dito sa room na to.

Overall, KidZania Manila is one of amazing and great playground for the kids. I really love the place because kids here learn how to be independent and in some ways will have an idea of what they want to be when they grow up. The rates are quiet high but with superb facilities, set-up, freebies and service, it’s justifiable and the overall experience is so worth it. I remember Rhian told me that this is her dream playground. We will come back here again when Rhaine turns 5. Promise!

Time flies so fast and I know super gasgas na talaga yung salitang yan but when I became mother, time ang kalaban ko lagi. Ang bilis ng oras! Ang bilis lumaki ng mga anak ko. I can still remember nung baby pa sila but now I have 4 year old and 3 year old daughters who have different personality with each other. Pareho silang unique and talagang lumalabas na yung ugali nila. I cannot say that I have perfect kids but I’m proud to say that we raised them to have a happy heart, to be humble and god-fearing children. 

Today, I just want to share how beautiful they are inside and out. Super proud ako sa kanila, from very shy type kids to very jolly and outgoing person. Sharing with you their latest photos and talaga naman nakakatuwa silang magkapatid.

By the way, one of our friends asked me last week if we are ready for #BabyNumber3 baka daw kasi baby boy na yun if ever. Hhhmmm… honestly, I wish to have baby boy in the future but not now maybe after 5 years as we’re still enjoying our two kiddos. Plus the fact na magastos manganak and madami pa kaming need isettle so wag muna but if God’s will na bigyan kami ng #BabyNumber3, we will be forever grateful and thankful for him as baby is always a blessings from God, right? :)

Manila, August 20 – The Asian Games are here, bringing with them a flurry of excitement to fans all over the continent! But while we expect the best athletes to show up, we keep overlooking the most skilled players - our babies.

It’s no secret that babies are unstoppable at play. In fact, they can run the equivalent of a marathon in a week! The only thing hampering their fun: wet, lawlaw diapers.

To showcase our babies’ prowess, Southeast Asia’s biggest e-commerce portal Lazada and the world’s top selling diaper brand Pampers, are joining hands to produce the first-ever virtual #babymarathon.


This one-of-a-kind feat is part of the Pampers x Lazada Super Brand Day, which will take place on August 29. For one day only, Super Brand Day allows consumers to discover the best of what a brand offers, which includes exclusive gifts, limited offers and even offline experiences.

Be Part of the Record-Breaking #babymarathon

The 42-minute #babymarathon video montage, which will be aired on August 29, will feature hundreds of babies and toddlers in the Philippines, Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam and Singapore, all “running” in a relay race. In the final video, parents may even find their children racing alongside Seve, son of Filipino celebrity and Pampers ambassador Toni Gonzaga.

Ready, get set, go!

All diapering babies aged 5 months and above are welcome to join Lazada and Pampers in creating this one-of-a-kind record! The virtual #babymarathon featuring the little athletes who joined across Southeast Asia will be aired on Lazada on Super Brand Day on 29 August.

You can join the fun in two ways 
  • Take a video of your baby walking, playing or running about in their Pampers diaper and post it using this link, with the hastags #babymarathon and #PampersxLazadaPH
  • You can also join our professional crew at Gymboree Greenbelt 5 on August 27, 2018, to film your little one in action during the #babymarathon celebration. Register in advance at this link.
Not all videos can be featured in the 42-minute video montage. But the most liked videos will win a cash prize of PHP30,000 or 6-month supply of Pampers diapers.

Join a marathon of Pampers Deals on Lazada

To help babies enjoy their weekly marathons free from wetness and the discomfort of lawlaw diapers, Pampers has put together a series of exclusive offers on 29th August 2018:

Starting from 12am midnight, there are promotion offers up to 35% off on Pampers Baby Dry Newborn Diapers and PHP100 discount vouchers for minimum PHP3000 purchases, which are limited to a 1000 units only.

Lazada’s Group Chief Business Officer Robin Mah said: “We are proud to be partnering with Pampers, one of the world’s leading diapers brands for Super Brand Day to showcase the unstoppable energy of babies while offering moms exclusive offers and delight. It is also a chance to spotlight their babies through fun experiences. ”

Akhil Meshram, Pampers Philippines Brand Manager said: “Pampers recognizes that one of mom and baby’s biggest frustration are sagging diapers, and how this can affect babies’ ability to move and learn from their surroundings. The #babymarathon is part of our My Baby Can Do That Campaign, where we hope to show how babies can do nakaka-WOW and amazing things when they have the freedom to move, especially in a less lawlaw diaper. Lazada, given its massive footprint across Southeast Asia is the ideal platform to amplify our efforts.”
