Kidzania – an amusement park that gives children ages 2 through 15 the chance to try on up to 70 different career options and get a taste for real-world commerce in a pint-sized replica city.
Kidzania offers all the hustle and bustle of big city life, with buildings and shops and pedestrian-filled streets. Under the supervision of adult instructors, kids can try their hand at police work, firefighting, medicine, banking, pizza and fast-food joints, utilities and public services, fashion and retail, TV and radio, newspaper journalism. The role-playing list goes on and on. To reward them for their hard work, children earn salaries in Kidzos – the official currency of Kidzania – which they can spend on goods and services throughout the park. And since a penny saved is a penny earned, they’re encouraged to put their Kidzos into bank accounts which they can access through special ATMs.
