What I love in being a blogger is when I get the chance to go somewhere that I haven’t been before.
Last month, I was invited in the opening of a new establishment in Kidzania Manila – The Art and Design Academy. My family and I were given passes so we can have a tour after the event. This is where my “work meets leisure”. I’m glad that I was able to enjoy the place with my family.
Kidzania Manila opened last year and became one of the top destinations for kids in the metro. It is a safe and unique environment where kids ages 4 to 14 years old can discover, explore and learn about the adult world in a kid-sized city built just for them. It has 8,00o square meters of play space, kids can explore and experience their interests through over 70 immersive role playing activities.
We just had a quick tour around the place since Cloud is too young for the role playing activities, he just turned 1 last January. But that did not stop us to enjoy Kidzania Manila because there are few establishments where babies 1 to 3 years old can play and enjoy.
We found the RightZKeepers’ House located at the mezzanine level. It is a house that mostly consists of toys that are safe for toddlers to play.

These kitchen appliances are perfect for kids who love to play “lutu-lutuan”.
Cloud’s most favorite part of the house. How I wish our bedroom looks like this lols.
RightZKeepers’ House welcomes parent or adult companion to supervise their toddlers while playing. I love that the Zupervisor is very friendly and accommodating. You can also use RightZKeepers’ House as a venue for your future parties.
Next is the Kindergarten just right across the RightZKeepers’ House.
Activities like reading, drawing, and coloring are perfect for 2 years old and above to showcase their talents and creativity in arts.
I also spotted their Breastfeeding Station located at the mezzanine level as well.
This is way too far from what I expected, this looks more of a comfort room to me. And to tell you honestly, I prefer nursing my son in public rather than nursing inside this cubicle. 🙁
Still looks decent though and I love that it has a mini-refrigerator.
This is better than nothing. I do hope for improvement to make it more comfortable and relaxing both for the mommy and the baby. Breastfeeding is like feeding food on your baby, no one eats in the comfort room. Right? *Breastfeeding advocate here* Anyway, you can find this breastfeeding station at the right side of RightZKeepers’ House.
You can also find the Sky Lounge at the mezzanine level where parents can stay and relax while their kids enjoy the fun activities.
