Mirza Baig, Director IP, Tribe Asia, said, “Windmill Festival was started with a vision to make it a global property. Windmill Festival came to the audiences at the right time, and the experience was overwhelming for the first year in Bengaluru, with the focus on getting children outdoors.

KidZania Delhi NCR Celebrates the 206th Anniversary of Mexico’s National Independence Day!

KidZania Delhi NCR hosted the Mexican Ambassador H. E. Melba Pria to celebrate the 206th National Independence of Mexico.

KidZania is a concept that originated from Mexico with the launch of their first KidZania facility in the year 1999. With the success of the first KidZania in Mexico City, they now have three centers in Mexico. KidZania has since spread globally, with 24 centers in 19 countries. One of the fastest growing kids interactive edutainment brands in the world; KidZania currently has two facilities in India, ‘Mumbai’ operational since 2013 & KidZania Delhi NCR (operational since May 2016.). It is known for its unique concept where kids have fun while enjoying real-life experiences in a city scaled down to kids’ size. I have been to the place twice myself and I am dying to take my son for this thrilling experience.


KidZania offers a great concept of making children familiar with different professions especially, and these professional experiences involve real life experiences in terms of functioning, monetary transactions, payouts etc. So while children enjoy multiple activities, they also learn the nitty gritties of those professional experiences.
