As part of its ongoing mission to blend fun with education, KidZania Kuala Lumpur recently welcomed Royal Canin, a leading brand in health through nutrition for cats and dogs, to its child-sized metropolis.
The partnership details
True to KidZania’s philosophy of “Learn Life Today”, the new partnership enables young minds to gain valuable knowledge on animal care by role-playing as veterinarians themselves. Through fun and interactive hands-on learning, the Royal Canin establishment at KidZania Kuala Lumpur aims to help children understand the various aspects of keeping pets happy and healthy, including proper pet nutrition.
Royal Canin is the latest Purpose Partner to bring real industry expertise to KidZania’s unique edutainment world that replicates a functioning city. With over 60 role-playing activities, KidZania Kuala Lumpur enables children to gain hands-on experience and insights on future careers, financial literacy and other aspects of the real world while developing valuable life skills.
With World Veterinary Day coming up on April 29, the launch of Royal Canin’s establishment served as a springboard to showcase the important work that veterinarians do, and spark children’s curiosity on what it takes to care for animals.
