Kids celebrate RightZKeepers’ birthdays at KidZania Manila

At KidZania Manila, the only kid-sized play city with over 100 role-playing activities, loyal visitors and newbies don’t just develop skills to build a better future—they also learn how to unwind, have fun, and celebrate milestones.

Recently, the kids came together for the different surprise birthday celebrations of Vita, Urbano, and Bache, the RightZKeepers of the Rights to Care, to Know, and to Play, respectively. During these special days, eager misters and misses were treated to fun and engaging activities, as well as a chance to surprise their favorite KidZania characters.

At each party, guests were provided with special IDs and lanyards, while Vita’s attendees were given beautiful flower crowns. KidZania CitiZens, or those who are currently KidZania paZZport holders, also received a canvas bag with coloring sheets inside, while the newbies were issued free paZZports at the Immigration office. At the Star Magic acting academy, the kids enthusiastically rehearsed their surprise, special dance numbers for the birthday celebrators before gathering all together, with their parents and guardians, at the play city’s Main Square to await the arrival of their beloved RightZKeepers.

Upon the arrival of the celebrators, excited misters and misses surprised the RightZKeepers through a lively dance number. Once they got to personally greet Vita, Urbano, and Bache, the guests were treated to cool giveaways, delicious birthday cupcakes for Urbano’s and Vita’s birthdays, and pizza for Bache’s birthday, an Acting Academy paZZport stamp, and kidZos for their special performances. 

To be able to participate in the birthday events, the kids engaged in take-home challenges that were part of KidZania Manila’s Kids for a Greener World program which ended last June 15, 2016. These tasks, created by Vita, included eating a sustainable kind of seafood, creating an upcycled product, and carpooling with friends. The misters and misses then documented their activities and shared them on KidZania’s instagram account.

The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) also played a vital role in every RightZKeeper’s party by encouraging the kids and their parents to creatively express their dedication to creating a greener world on the mural wall by the Main Square. 

To participate, kids just have to donate any amount of kidZos or Philippine Pesos. Apart from the art mural, there are donation boxes at select KidZania establishments and the National Store. The total amount in pesos will help fund UNICEF’s child education programs. During a RightZKeeper’s birthday, 20% of proceeds from character-themed merchandise also go to UNICEF. Watch out for the upcoming birthday celebration of RightZkeeper Chika on July 30!

By fostering positive values through fun learning and celebrations, the play city is truly helping kids become better citizens, tasked to build an even better world tomorrow. So hurry, come celebrate your family weekends at KidZania Manila and let your kids create a better world for everyone!
