Be A Tealive Junior Tearista At KidZania Kuala Lumpur !


Kai KidZ, do you want to be a Junior Tearista? Bubble Tea, the international beverage sensation which has enticed the palates and captured the hearts of people all across the world, Malaysians included, has officially landed on the steps of KidZania Kuala Lumpur as the award-winning indoor family centre welcomed its newest industry partner, Tealive.


To formalise the partnership, Bryan Loo, Chief Executive Officer of Loob Holding Sdn Bhd, the brand owner of Tealive, was presented with the ‘Key to the City’, a symbolic honour traditionally bestowed by a city upon esteemed individuals by KidZania Kuala Lumpur’s very own mayor, Shahrul Nizar Ahmad.


Aimed at promoting experiential learning and diverting children’s attention away from gadgets, the new Tealive café establishment will expose kids to the ins and outs of being a Junior Tearista through hands-on experiences that promote the development of useful life skills.


Mouse mommy was happy to Welcome Tealive Onboard to allow KidZ to explore, experiment and experience HOW to make their own bubble tea. 

Order a drink is pretty easy. But, if kids want to self-made a nice beverage is not that easy as A-B-C, as in required skill, time and knowledge. Kids can DIY bubble tea by themselves and drink it!

“We’re delighted to have Tealive, one of Malaysia’s largest beverage chains and experts in their own right, partner with us to lend industry insight and work hand-in-hand to equip children with vital skill sets for the future such as self-confidence, attention to detail, independence and communication skills,” said Shahrul Nizar Ahmad.


“In this new world driven by advanced technology and gadgets, parents today face a new challenge of keeping their child away from their gadgets. What we offer at KidZania Kuala Lumpur is an avenue for kids to take a step back from all that screen time and experience real life in a fun and engaging way through one-of-a-kind role play activities that expose kids to real world professions and career possibilities,” he added.


Some of the activities visitors can look forward to at the Tealive café establishment include learning how to brew Tealive’s signature handcrafted teas – the Original Pearl Milk Tea and Mango Juice with Pearls, learning how to work the machinery and tools, manage a store, as well as handlecustomer service. The ingredients involved in making the milk tea and pearls are freshly-brewed tea and tapioca starch. All drinks that are prepared in the establishment are also capped at only half-sugar level.

Commenting on the partnership, Bryan Loo said, “Malaysians already have a strong tea culture. We’re happy to extend this into a modern tea-drinking lifestyle and in the process enabling Tealive to be the leading brand in hand-crafted tea at home and in this region.


“This venture is yet another Tealive Breakthrough for us and we’re excited to be chosen by KidZania Kuala Lumpur for this meaningful activity for our young. We’re confident this partnership will be successful and beneficial to both the children and parents.”

Loo said for the young and curious, their inquisitive mindswould be fulfilled through interactive activities to showcase the fun side of how their favourite beverages are brewed.


“Children at KidZania will no longer be full of awe and wonder at how their pearl milk tea is made. At Tealive, we strongly believe that providing a hands-on experience is much better than watching videos to pick up a new skill.

“Actually, it’s more than just learning a new skill here. This process will boost each child’s self-confidence that they, too, can do something productive – independently on their own rather than depending on others.


“Thus, in this context, making your own cup of Tealive pearl milk tea will carry a lot more weight and significance than meets the eye. Parents will appreciate this character-building and confidence-boosting exercise. Imagine what a milestone it will be for a young boy or girl to make a drink and serve it to customers instead of always being served by others,” Loo said.


This process, he added, would give children fresh insight into the effort, care and attention to quality and hygiene behind-the-scenes before each cup is ready to be served. “They will have a healthier respect for customer-service staff wherever they go and will hopefully grow up to be an understanding customers themselves,” he quipped.

CREATIVE FABER-CASTELL’S BACK TO SCHOOL STATIONERY TO NURTURE CREATIVITY AND IMAGINATION OF CHILDREN



Faber-Castell Malaysia launched its ‘Back to School’ campaign this year with the focus on nurturing the creativity and imagination of children. The company believes that this will in turn, stimulate the brain development of young children. 


According to Mr Andrew Woon, Managing Director of A.W Faber-Castell Malaysia Sdn Bhd, choosing the right stationery products is an important contributing factor to the brain development of young children. “A good stationery set will enhance their learning experience and also improve their fine motor skills." 


Tri-Grip pencils and Grasp Crayon for example, were invented with practicality and grip comfort in mind so that children would love using them and this will also pique their learning interest,” said Woon.


Bearing the quality and the R&D tenacity of a German brand, Faber-Castell products are designed and developed after years of research, resulting in ergonomic designs. With its products, Faber-Castell aims to offer creative experiences that will delight and inspire customers.


This year’s Back to School campaign themed Castle Heroes, features a male character named Bernard and a female character named Cassandra. Both these Castle Heroes characters will inspire children to use their imagination in conquering obstacles and challenges.


Four inspirational Castle Heroes sets are introduced in conjunction with the Back to School launch. They include an essential school set containing complete stationery items that one would need, a drawing set coupled with a set of creative drawing cards, a mechanical pencil set and a 3-piece eraser set.


Apart from the Castle Heroes sets, Faber-Castell Malaysia is also introducing several Back to School sets, promotional sets and gift sets which are ideal as gift for the holidays. 





Among them are also new innovative products such as the ‘Colour to Life’ Augmented Reality Colouring Book with Connector Pens; My Colour Companion First Grasp Crayons coupled with a colouring book – designed especially fortoddlers aged three to four years old; and also an attractive Colour Design Tri-Writing triangular pencils which is perfect for writing and drawing.


‘Colour to Life’ is Faber-Castell Malaysia’s latest digital application to bring colouring and drawing to the next level. 



The set comes with a colouring book, a set of coloured connector pens and an app that makes the characters in the book come to life with colours. 



This Augmented Reality colouring book is the first of its kind by a stationery company.


The Back to School launch event also saw the participation of 24 children, aged 4 to 16 from the Trinity Community Children’s Home. The home is also sponsored with a year’s supply of stationery items by Faber-Castell Malaysia as part of their corporate social responsibility programme.


The public can also look forward to several activities, which will inculcate creativity in conjunction with this year’s Back to School campaign such as the ‘Spot, Snap and Win’ contest as well as on-ground colouring activities and creative Tack-It workshops at selected mall locations nationwide.


To make things more interesting for its customers, Faber-Castell Malaysia is also collaborating with KidZania to offer special discounts for KidZania entry tickets with the purchase of the Faber-Castell Slim-Flexi or Watercolour pencils. 


A single receipt purchase, entitles customers to purchase up to four tickets with 35per cent discount from 1 November to 31 December 2019 and a 40 per cent discount from 1 January to 31 March 2020.


In addition to that, a colouring contest organised by Faber-Castell will also be held from the 1 November 2019 till 5 January 2020 with the colouring sheet available for redemption at KidZania or simply download from Faber-Castell Malaysia’s Facebook page.

Be A STAR At KidZania Kuala Lumpur | LIGHTS, CAMERA, ACTION!



Lights, Camera, Action! Calling all budding young stars! KidZania Kuala Lumpur’s Be A Star variable school-holiday programme is back for a second season by popular demand, following stellar reception from the programme’s debut last year.


Recently launched, the second season of the Be A Star programme promises to be bigger, better and more glamorous, with the aim  of exposing young kids to the dynamic world of performing arts and entertainment through fun and engaging learning experiences.


Indeed, KidZania Kuala Lumpur’s Be A Star programme is the ideal platform for young ones to shine and express their creative talents through specially curated activities and workshops, including the highly lauded STARZ Talent Contest, which will make a comeback with more alluring prizes such as a Canon iNSPiC C, Canon TS8270 Inkjet PIXMA, one year’s worth of TeaLive supply (52 cups) and also breakthrough prizes from TeaLive, a visit to BFM radio station, cash prizes from Fraser and Neave (F&N), hampers from SUU Balm and more.

Present at the launch were representatives from collaborating partners comprising Canon, TeaLive, Suu Balm, Malaysian Palm Oil Council (MPOC), F&N, BFM 89.9, the National Film Development Corporation Malaysia (FINAS) and Aqademi.


Speaking at the launch, Shahrul Nizar Ahmad, Mayor of KidZania Kuala Lumpur said, “As we are all aware, some of the best and biggest dreamers out there are kids. So this school holiday, we want to give kids the “star treatment” they truly deserve by exposing them to performing arts and entertainment industry based activities like acting, modelling, singing, dancing, grooming and hosting while also exposing them to today’s current technology to truly give them a hands-on, in-depth experience of what it would be like to ‘Be A Star’.”


“The return of the STARZ Talent Contest this year also brings an exciting element to the mix. There are many kids who possess various talents but don’t get the opportunity to showcase them within the four walls of the classroom setting. Not only does this talent contest allow participants the opportunity to discover what they are good at, it also encourages healthy competition as well as equip them with important life skills as they learn the value of critical feedback, both positive and constructive. Moreover, what we offer is a safe, educational, family-oriented way to gain knowledge about the talent industry,” he added.

Submission of entries for the STARZ Talent Contest will open from 16 to 30 November 2019. The four contest categories include Star Model, Star Singer, Star Presenter and Star Dancer.  Aspiring young stars are encouraged to submit an audition video showcasing their talents in singing, dancing, acting or modelling. After which, three finalists from each category will be shortlisted to battle it out at the Final Stage on 28 December 2019.

KidZania Kuala Lumpur’s Be A Star programme runs from 23 November to 3 January 2020 to coincide with the year-end school holidays. Staying true to KidZania’s philosophy of empowering children to “Learn Life Today”, the programme encourages the development of core life skills that will prepare kids for the future such as overcoming shyness, building confidence, and developing positive self-esteem, learning proper etiquette and good manners, and strengthening the ability to interact with others.

Apart from the talent contest, six main activities and six weekend workshops will be featured amidst a special activity exclusively for loyalty programme members and other establishment activities to take place within KidZania Kuala Lumpur.
