KidZania Celebrates Father’s Day With LBC Express In “Daddy, Get Set Go!”

Kidzania Manila is one of my little man’s favorite place to visit. He enjoyed each of our visit and always looks forward to go back {you can read our previous Kidzania Manila visits here}. We were supposed to go there on Father’s Day, but, unfortunately, we cannot make it. We are both crossing our fingers that we can go back very soon.

Receiving an LBC padala always brings joy to every recipient as it never fails to put a smile on a recipient’s face or make the day better. To spread some Father’s Day cheer in their own way, LBC joined KidZania this past weekend in celebrating the man of the house with special activities for kids and their dads.

At the Courier Service establishment in KidZania, designed as a mini-LBC Express branch, kids and their dads worked together in receiving and boxing parcels and shipping them out around the city.

LBC, the Philippines’ market leader in retail and corporate courier and cargo, money remittance, and logistics services, also set up a special booth in the city where kids got to write greeting postcards for their dads. Kids only needed to pay using their kidZos – the official KidZania currency. After writing, they could hand their custom postcards personally to their dads who accompanied them to KidZania.

As a special Father’s Day treat, kids could also surprise their dads by sending their greeting postcards for FREE, with LBC shipping them within Metro Manila right to their doorstep.

With these special Father’s Day activities, LBC hopes to send the message to everyone that they are always ready to send love and happiness by connecting lives – whatever the reason or the occasion.

To say that the little man enjoyed his previous visits to KidZania Manila is such an under-statement, so you can imagine how excited he was when he found out that we were going back there yet again for the launch of the all-new National Art and Design Academy.

the little man with his 50 KidZos

If you read my previous KidZania Manila post, I am sure you know exactly how excited I am to go there again, with the little man this time. We planned to visit on Jared’s birthday but I had second thoughts about reserving our tickets online as they cannot be refunded should we cancel in case of bad weather and since tickets sell like hot cakes, the Kidzania Manila management is discouraging walk-ins especially during weekends. In the end, I had to bring the little one to a play place that have also just opened here in our city and promised to bring him to Kidzania some other time. Meanwhile, he carefully scrutinized the map and planned on the activities he would do once he got there.

I guess the stars must’ve aligned for the little one to visit KidZania sooner as it was one of the places in their school field trip itinerary. It was Jared’s very first school field trip and this mums is way too excited, I woke up at 3am to prepare.

KidZania Manila is the first place to visit in the afternoon after we have taken our lunch at Rizal Park. Good thing traffic was not so bad at the time and we were in The Fort just a little after the scheduled time of arrival. It took a bit longer for us to get in but it was well worth the wait.

mum’s RFID {Radio Frequency Identification} security bracelets

We went and checked in at the airport to have our RFID {Radio Frequency Identification} security bracelets. Before entering the premises, the kids were also issued with 50 KidZos each.

As usual, the place is packed with children raring to give each activity a go. It was a good thing that there was a very short queue when we lined up for the Aviation Academy. As I have previously known, mums and dads will not be allowed to accompany the children inside the activity areas, and while our little man trained to be a pilot, we excitedly waited for him outside, hoping to get some decent photos while he enjoys his first KidZania activity.
