KidZos (the currency in Kidzania) is for spending on different products and services inside the play city.

Tip: It's safe to leave your Kids inside KidZania, your child can't go out of the premises without the RFID bracelet of the guardian.

 Kidzania ManilaTip: There is no easy way for getting more kidZos. You can't buy them with pesos, you can only get more by earning them through a job.

 

4. What job should I take?

Kidzania ManilaYou are free to be whoever you want to be!

But if you're a little lost, head on over to the employment center, where they can help you find a job that suits you.

One kid said he wanted to be "youtube celebrity", so the employment center helped him find jobs that matches his needs...

or if you don't know what you want yet, you can take a short quiz for 10 kidzos to see which jobs suits your personality!

 

Tip: Parents are encouraged to let the kids choose the jobs on their own, to encourage them to make their own choices.

9. Tips to earn more kidZos: KidZania Citizen PaZZport

If you plan to go back to KidZania again, getting a KidZanian paZZport is a plus. But for one time visitors it might not help you that much.

A KidZanian PaZZport can help you earn more KidZos when you do a job, give you better roles on certain activities and gets you discounts in the Department store and National Bookstore.

Each activity you finish earns you a stamp, the more stamps you collect the more kidZos and benefits you get.

The one time fee costs P250.

11. Where can my parents and baby brother/sister stay?

Kidzania ManilaIf you're 8 years and above, you can go around KidZania without a parent or guardian. Your parents can stay in the Sky lounge where there is free wifi available. But we strongly suggest you bring your parent along to capture your fun moments inside the city.

12. Shop using your kidZos

Kidzania ManilaPay with KidZos at the department store and cash in National bookstore.

Kidzania ManilaI'm eyeing on the costumes they are selling...

 

Z-U soon!

Kidzania ManilaExit Via the Immigration center and Don't forget to keep your KidZos for your next visit.

Kidzania ManilaKidZania is an awesome place where kids can find their passion in a playful game-like manner. It teaches them the value of improving skills, how to spend and save money, teamwork, and being part of a community.

We personally aren't a fan of the activities having brands and sponsored companies. But according to KidZania, it gives kids a simulated experience of an actual city, plus they get advise from industry partners to make the jobs as realistic as possible.

I love KidZania, I kinda wish I was a kid again and maybe had the chance to be a doctor or a pilot. I heard they are planning to make an activity to help kids become entrepreneurs and not just part of the workforce.

I hope our guide helped you a lot! Z-U!
