It’s been announced that KidzMondo, an amazing scaled-down city where kids rule, is coming to Mall of Qatar (MOQ) in early 2016.  The region’s largest leisure, entertainment and shopping complex, when it opens its doors,has entered into a unique partnership with Kidz Holding to bring KidzMondo, a world-renowned child edutainment (education + entertainment) concept, to Qatar for the first time.

KidzMondo, an impressive miniature city, accurate down to the last detail,is built just for kids between the ages of 2 to 14.  The 25 million US dollar project,that will be prominently featured as part of Mall of Qatar’s family entertainment zone,covers over 8,000 square metres on multiple levels.Design on its more than 70 mini-business establishments is in the final stages, with many of the structural elements already in place. When open, children will be able to engage in real life situations and professional role play,under the supervision of a highly competent educator staff.

“We are delighted to announce this partnership which will bring the ‘first city’ of education and entertainment to Qatar, allowing children to truly immerse themselves in a highly stimulating environment,” said Mr. Ayman Al Jamil, CEO of Aura Retail Company, owner of KidzMondo Doha.

KidzMondo Doha will cooperate with more than 70 corporate partners to sponsor various activities and bring the city to life. Children will be able to play all the traditional roles such as firemen, bankers, doctors, pilots, actors, beauticians and earn salaries in KidzMondo’s currency that they can spend in the KidzMondo stores. The architectural layout is much like a real city with a central plaza, clock tower, fire station, police station, hospital, theatre and many other establishments spread throughout in two story buildings all under one colossal roof. In addition, KidzMondo Doha is being carefully planned to include many features unique to Qatar and introduce new jobs in space, energy and technology that will challenge children in the future.

“We are excited to introduce this intellectually stimulating venue to Qatar, and in doing so, bring our younger visitors a little closer to a grownup’s world. We feel that allowing children to immerse themselves in a miniature version of the world around them will spark their imagination in a fun and interactive way,” said Shem Krey, Managing Director of Mall of Qatar. “This is only one of the many new and exciting entertainment concepts we will be introducing in Mall of Qatar in the coming months”.

From its first location on the Beirut Waterfront in Lebanon, Kidz Holding has been actively growing its global reach, engaging with partners in many countries across the Middle East, including, UAE, Kuwait, Turkey, Jordan, KSA, and Egypt, as well as in other countries. The KidsMondo concept is designed to meet a growing need to combine education with entertainment by providing relevant learning experiences which expose children to age-appropriate activities in a dynamic and safe atmosphere.

When complete, Mall of Qatar, with over 500 stores, will be the nation’s largest mall.  It will offer visitors a wide selection of major international brands, dining options, a 5 star luxury hotel, part of the Curio Collection by Hilton, and an impressive array of unique entertainment experiences, including the largest IMAX Laser 3D projection system in the world. It will also feature a professional live theatre in an eight story high central glassed dome, complete with resident performance troupe and animated water features. The Mall of Qatar will open in early 2016.
