The little man absolutely loves Kidzania. In fact, he told me once that it is his favorite place. He was actually asking me this morning while preparing for school when we are going back! So it is no surprise that we’d grab every chance or excuse to go back to the awesome place.  And I guess, you can also easily tell who is more delighted to receive an invite from Allerkid to spend a day with them at Kidzania Manila a few weeks back. :-D

Allerkid in a nutshell

I was interested to know more about this brand since this is what his pedia prescribed to the little one whenever he had allergies or sniffles. Of course I would also like to know more about allergies and allergy management as we’ve been plagued by a number of them over the years. It is not only Jared who has them, I also had my fair share of those nasty reds and itches.

It is comforting to know that it is the No.1 Allergy Medicine for kids and is the most-doctor prescribed, too. Cetirizine Allerkid is effective in relieving allergy symptoms of Allergic Rhinitis, including sneezing, nasal itching, watery eyes or what we call in our vernacular “hatsing-singhot-kamot.” It is also used for Allergic conjunctivitis, as well as Atopic dermatitis. Allerkid is known to control allergy in as fast as 20 minutes with the effects that lasts up to 24 hours, thus it can only be taken once a day. Kids also enjoy the great grape taste because of its TasteRite Technology which masks the bitter taste of medicine.

Here Are 3 Ways To Help Manage Allergies

  • Teach the little ones about proper hygiene ~ apart from making sure the little ones take a bath daily, it is a must that we teach them how to wash their hands properly, too. And for added protection, make sure they always carry a handkerchief or hand towel to cover their mouths when they sneeze or cough.
  • Encourage the little ones to exercise and lead an active life ~ regular exercise not only make the little one’s body strong, it also improves his disposition and his mood and boosts his immune system so it can fight off illnesses and allergies.
  • Let the kids have a well-balanced diet ~ eating fruits and vegetables gives the children the proper amount of nutrients and minerals their small bodies need to grow strong and healthy.

The Allerkid Event at Kidzania Manila

Apart from letting the mums and kids enjoy a wonderful time together at Kidzania Manila {yes, mums also got to try the many jobs available and be kids for one day!}, Allerkid also increased everyone’s awareness on allergy education. Dr. Shirley Kwong, an allergist from the Philippine Society of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology {PSAAI}, educated us about the signs, symptoms, and management of allergies. She also spoke about the Allergy Club of PSAAI, which aims to educate patients about their allergic diseases to help them control their allergies and improve their quality of life. And to make the lessons fun and enjoyable for the kids, they invited Mr. Ony Carcamo, a renowned ventriloquist, along with his puppet, Kulas,  to teach us more about allergies and how to manage them.

After the very brief program, it was time for the mums and kids to explore this beautiful city designed for small people. Because it was a special day, mums also gets a chance to be kids for a day and try the many jobs and activities available. Before anything else, we proceeded to BPI to exchange our checks into kidzos, the Kidzania currency.  I was excited to accompany the little man in his itinerary for the day as it was something we’ve never done before. I was only made to watch him outside the establishments as he enjoyed each activities he chose during our previous visits.

at the CSI Lab

After getting our kidzos, I let the little one chose our first activity for the day and watched him as he excitedly waddled to the CSI/Police Station. An avid fan of CSI, the X-Files, and other similar shows on the tellie, I was excited to participate and be an investigator for a day! We followed the case of a missing car at the Car Dealership, as well as the missing medicine from the hospital. After gearing up and wearing our gloves, we followed the trails of the crime at the hospital, the bank, and finally, the car dealership. We collected evidences and pertinent information from witnesses and brought them to the lab for further study. Our panel was successful in pin-pointing the suspect and, in turn, earned each 10 Kidzos for our efforts! Woot!  :laugh:

my little firefighter

We were not as productive as I initially planned, as we only got to try a couple of jobs, but it was well worth it and I was sure the little one enjoyed his visit. He then asked me if he can give the fire department a go and I happily obliged. This is one of his favorite jobs here and loved putting out the fire on our last visit. He was lucky he was able to do this again that day. As soon as the fire alarm set off, the little excited fire fighters made a beeline for the fire truck to reach the burning hotel. The fire was out after a few minutes and my little fireman was beaming with lovely smile. By the way, you have to pay 10 Kidzos to try your hand at being a fireman.

There were other activities I would’ve loved to give a go, but it seemed like my little one was not up to the task that day. We just roamed around and wander at the different awesome things to see and before we know it, it was time for us to leave. Of course, the little man insisted we visit again real soon.

Needless to say, we absolutely enjoyed our Kidzania visit. Thank you, Allerkid for having us! For more information about Allerkid, do visit the Allerkid Product Page, unilab.com.ph/products/allerkid
