Kiztopia – Singapore’s Biggest Indoor Edutainment Playground In A Shopping Mall
Sat Jun 15 @ 10:00 am - 9:00 pm
Come June 15, children in Singapore will have a brand new place to play and learn as Kiztopia, Singapore’s Biggest Indoor Edutainment Playground, opens in Marina Square.
Covering an area of 18,000 square feet, this fun utopia for kids aged 12 years and below aims to help children develop new skills through active play.
“Play to Learn, Learn through Play”
Building on its motto, “Play to Learn, Learn through Play”, the park also has its own curated educational programmes and facilities. This includes an indoor driving school, role play rooms, Augmented Reality (AR) studios with arts and sports content, function rooms, and even its own themed café.
Liana Raffort, Managing Director of Kiztopia, said: “At Kiztopia, we are big advocates of playing to learn, and learning through play. We have specially designed and curated all our activities and facilities to provide great sources of stimuli and fun, so that children are kept entertained and engaged as they learn. Kiztopia is also Singapore’s first edutainment park that comes with its own unique mascots featured at each multi-sensory play space, with its own dedicated learning objectives. The idea is to encourage free and purposeful play that has an important role in the overall physical, cognitive, and socio-emotional developments of a child.”
11 Unique Characters of Kiztopia
Together with cast of 11 original animated characters, kids can go through 18 play zones where they can learn a skill while performing a task. Each play zone is designed with specific learning objectives in mind for little ones to cultivate social, emotional, and motor skills.
The 11 original characters are developed by Kiztopia – Dr. Chen, Mark the monkey, Chichi the chick, Tiger, Raby the rabbit, Bell the bear, Pepe the pig, Tina the turtle, Pio the penguin, Honey the bee, and Eli the elephant.
Each character comes with its own distinctive personality, profession, and story, that accompanies specific play areas within the park.
For example, Honey the Bee is known to have a sweet voice that can lull her friends to sleep. She loves music and dislikes silence, and dreams to be a star one day. Because she loves to sing, you’ll find her in Honey Notes (the park’s music room) where she encourages children to express themselves through music.
Kiztopia Play Zones for Holistic Learning
Each of the 18 play zones is designed with multiple intelligences and learning domains in mind:
Kiztopia also offers a range of programmes and activities which promote multiple intelligences and learning domains. These are curated by a team of professional trainers. The classes are open to the public and will start in August 2019. They include: rhythmic gymnastics classes, music and movement, speech and drama, cooking classes, phonics and reading, visual arts, science and robotics, just to name a few.
Healthy and Nutritional Eating at the Kiztopia Café
The Kiztopia café, Bell’s Pantry, is named after the oversized bear character, Bell, who enjoys hosting his friends. This cosy space has vibrant colours and boasts a healthy, nutritional menu. All food items are freshly and organically prepared from scratch in the in-house kitchen. They sound delicious too! Children can tuck into delectable menu items such as Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict, Mac n’ Cheese and decadent Stacked Pancakes.
Encouraging Parent-Child Bonding at Kiztopia
To encourage parents to interact with their kids at the park and foster a stronger parent-child bond, each admission pass includes entry for one child and one adult.
From now until mid-July 2019, Kiztopia is offering early-bird and grand opening promotions for all Single Entrance tickets, 15-times Admission tickets, and Annual Passes.
We’re looking forward to Kiztopia! Aren’t you?
