Keeping our boys and girls engaged in activities outside school is at the top of most parents’ list. It is during our children’s formative years where their minds are open to new challenges, and signing them up for afterschool activities help to hone in on their passions. Luckily for our youngsters, Dubai and Abu Dhabi…Read More
If you are in Abu Dhabi and are looking to take your child to a very hands-on, multi-activity, unique experience venue, then you would really enjoy Kidz Factory!
Located in Dalma Mall, their concept is where Imagination Meets Art! They are an Art, Hobby & Edutainment centre who boasts some amazing desserts that my kids and I got to try. One being their freak shake! Which was HUGE by the way! So, if you’re looking for a day to spoil your child, this would be a great place for that!
They have a cute café set right next to the play zone where you are able to sit and watch your child in all their fun. You can order anything from a simple cappuccino, to gourmet burgers to decadent cakes. My kids and I got to try their Peppa Pig Oreo freak shake, which is loaded with chocolate goodies like Oreo cookies, Choco sticks, M&M’s, Malteser balls, a mini cake muffin all placed perfectly on top of an Oreo shake.
I don’t know what child doesn’t like to pretend to bake, so what better idea for a birthday party idea than a Bake & Build Birthday! They offer 3 different packages, you choose your menu and your theme. Some sample themes would be Unicorns & Rainbow sprinkles, MasterChef Minion and Peppa’s Pizza & Pudding Party!
And if that wasn’t enough, they also offer party food boxes for kids!
Ok, enough about all this deliciousness because it’s seriously making me want to go back just for the desserts!
Apart from all the food, they boast a pretty awesome art play centre. I would say their main theme being painting. You can choose (depending on which package) an item from their art shop, to paint. My kids chose their names spelled out in mini wooden letters that attach to make a train. But you can choose ceramic items, plain white shoes (yes shoes!), wooden items and even coffee mugs!
For their play packages, they have two Tiny Tot Worker packages for under 4 years old (accompanied by adult) that you pay per hour, the second one being 1.5 hours. They both include their play yard, which includes their trampoline, block pit, construction pit (that they can operate!) and then what’s called Zumba’s Tiny Mill. This includes a colour craft or modelling clay, sensory exploration, story time and splat station (which my kids loved!)
I almost forgot to mention the slime making! My kids made slime for the first time there!
A special favourite for my son who was SUPER into it!
Above 4 years old can be left unaccompanied, and you have the choice between 5 package options, ranging from 75aed per hour (the more expensive the package, the longer the times) to their VIP which is 190aed at unlimited play and basically includes everything! They have weekday offers as well as add-ons.
Over all, my 2.5-year-old twins loved it, as they are really into activities like this at this age. I would say anything under than 2 years old, they might be a young for it, but I guess as long as you are there guiding them, they can very well enjoy it! Now if only I can convince them to open up one closer to where I live!
