So what do you want to be when you grow up? In Kidzania, they can do these things NOW. There's no need to wait for the time the kids grow up. The time is now - in the kids world.
Kidzania Jakarta is the very first one in Southeast Asia. (The Philippines will have Kidzania soon and we are all so excited about this too.)
There are over 70 professions for kids to try out in Kidzania- Jakarta. All these professions can't be experienced for one session. There's usually two sessions during the day, morning and afternoon session - need to be really early to maximize the time.
As for us, we did enjoy what we had experienced. Well, at least the kids did for sure. They earn money, they spend money to earn money -exactly like the real life! Valuable lessons there for sure.
Our three-year old Kerim just felt a little out of place sometimes because most of the professions are for 5 years old and up. No wonder kids his age pay half the entrance fee. But still, it is worth the experience. He did get to experience some professions as well anyways.
Kids were so dead tired by the time Kidzania closed for the morning session. Dead tired and more knowledgeable about the real life and their "future."
