I remember when I was a kid, I love to pretend that I was a Model, News Reporter, Cashier, Flight Attendant, Dentist, Doctor, Nurse, Waitress or Chef.
As part of our play, we would get clothes and find things to make-believe to the role we play.
When I heard about KidZania, I was very excited for my kids to experience this to empower them in a fun way through interactive role play & learning. I wish we have this when I was a kid.
KidZania is an educational theme park coming soon here in Manila, it is an interactive kids city with over 100 different role playing activities with more than 70 replicas of real-life establishments scaled-down to a kid's size.
Well, here's a YouTube Video to see what to expect with KidZania.
My kids was astonished watching this preview.
Just like real life, they go to work and earn with KidZania's own currency called "KidZo" that they can use inside the theme park to purchase goods and services. There is even a bank where they can open a bank account and deposit their earnings to save KidZos and withdraw them using KidZania ATM cards.
To provide excitement and authenticity to the experience KidZania partners with real-life brands and McDonald's Philippines is happy to announce its partnership with KidZania Manila and be the official Burger Shop.
Get Ready for a Better World!
This partnership strengthen McDonald's commitment to children's well-being as it continuously paves way to provide enjoyable and enriching experience for families, the McDonald's way.

KidZania Manila will feature McDonald’s Burger Shop where kids age 4 to 12 years old will learn the ingredients that go into every McDonald’s Cheeseburger and each step of the process in making it.
The training that kids will undergo is the same standard procedure that ensures Quality, Service and Cleanliness delivered to every customer and each meal enjoyed in any McDonald’s around the world. It’s definitely a fun experience where kids develop their skills and teach them the values of responsibility, hard work and discipline.
McDonald’s Philippines President and CEO Kenneth S. Yang shares, “We are definitely excited about this partnership as it strongly adheres to our commitment to Filipino families especially kids. We have existing programs that are especially designed for our youngest customers such as Kiddie Crew, a summer program wherein kids are trained like a McDonald’s crew and enjoy fun activities and creative workshops.
We have Family Fun Days that we regularly hold in-store and the annual McHappy Day that encourages families to go out, play and enjoy a morning of fun run and various activities. Now that McDonald’s Burger Shop will open at KidZania Manila, it is yet another innovative way to have a fun activity for kids which at the same time teach them essential life skills and values. We are looking forward to hear their good stories as they enjoy their experience at the Burger Shop.”
“Like KidZania, McDonald’s is a brand that loves and is loved by kids around the world,” said Maricel Pangilinan-Arenas, Governor of KidZania Manila and President and CEO of Play Innovations Inc. “We’re very excited to have them as an ally in giving children a truly realistic, immersive experience. Our goal is to empower kids in a fun way, by letting them experience how a community works, how to make and manage money, and how to cooperate and work with other people—all of which are necessary for success in the adult world.”
Eugenio "Gabby" Lopez III Chairman, ABS-CBN and Chairman of Play Innovations Inc., shared that when he was a kid, he wants to be a cowboy and he would put on his cowboy hat, bubble gum cigarette and took off with a horse. One thing that followed that step was somebody who makes his own decision and be independent :-)
KidZania is locally franchised by Play Innovations, Inc., a subsidiary of ABS-CBN Corporation.
The inspirational quote that KidZania lives by:
"People will forget what you said, forget what you did, but will never forget how you made them feel."- Maya Angelou
