Malaysia's 1st Personalized Learning Edutainment Park - Little Kingdom

Chinese New Year is around the corner. Looking for a place to spend your time with your kids during the school holidays? Let's visit Little Kingdom.

Little Kingdom is Malaysia’s first personalized learning edutainment park. It is a magical kingdom, a place of imagination, a land where dreams come true. Little Kingdom is all about creating magical moments. It encourages your kids to explore, learn and create memories during their playtime. They can learn through playing.

Little Kingdom is located at Parkson Maju Junction Mall. Featuring 35 Happy Toon World characters from the United States, Little Kingdom targets children aged between 3 – 15 years old.

Here is the map for little Kingdom that is yet to be explored by all of us. There are basically 2 floors which consist of Little Pinocchio Street, Little Aladdin Town, Fairy Tales Wonderland, Tales of Pirate, Tales of Martian, services and others.

I am glad to had the opportunity to bring my kids to experience a day in Little Kingdom. When we reached the Little Kingdom entrance, it has a big magic video ball in front and some little Happy Toon characters. My kids already felt excited before going in to start their journey.

We queued at the Magical Mansion ticketing counter to get our tickets and each of us had to wear the wristband to go in. We couldn’t wait to participate in the activities and games that were going on. The entrance also has a big book which is in the process of applying for Guinness Record The Bigger Book.

There are many things your kids can do in Little Kingdom, so plan your time well. We were given a timetable to schedule our activities from 10am - 6pm. If you go on Saturday or public holiday, then you can play until 7pm. First, we proceed to the friendly Magical Dreamland customer service counter to help us plan our schedule.

All the classes and activities have to register in advanced where the slots are limited and some are only available on certain time. Please check the class schedule at Little Kingdom timetable before you visit. There are only two classes that are suitable for my daughter on that day. I have registered "The law of aerodynamic" class at 2.00pm and "Folding Animal" class at 4:00pm. Each class is around 45 minutes.

There are six classrooms in Little Kingdom for different types of classes : 
  • Little T-Rex Kitchen for cooking and culinary arts classes
  • Little Cinderella Ballroom for dancing, music, fitness and exercise classes
  • Little Alice Wonderland for creative, art, craft and coloring classes
  • Little Beast Field for yoga and sports classes
  • Little Genie House for Pygmalion, science, physic and storytelling classes
  • Little Alien Spaceship for Lego and robotic classes
I also registered the two rides: Fantasy Drive and Amazon Ride for my kids at 3.00pm. My kids are given two Little Kingdom power cards to collect stamps if they complete mission or game challenge. There are total currently 8 stamps to collect from Fantasy Ride, Amazon Ride, Maze Run, Brainy Play, Secret Island, Mystical Forest, Enchanted Town and Mysterious Mars. These are the two cards my daughter and son chose.

After the registration, we proceed to Mystical Forest and Enchanted Town to perform all the climbing and sliding activities. Basically, it is a playground for them to climb up and down, here and there. We spent roughly half an hour there for the kids to explore the playground. It has a big pirate ship, a big ball pool and a lot of sliders there. My kids are happy and play until sweat.

Next, we move to the Secret Island to play the sand there. If you worry your kids to playing the sand outside, then come here to play. All people must wear socks before going in. The sand is black color with a lot of playing tools for the kids to play. My kids were playing happily with their father. Again, here is another 30 minutes they playing.

My kids can't wait to run into the maze, my son is having difficulties to come out when he move in. He just move in when he saw his sister go inside. The parent can guide or monitor from the top of the maze. With the help of my daughter, my son also complete the mission and run out from the maze. They collected stamps here.

Time past fast, it was around 1pm and all of us are hungry. There are few places to look for food in Little Kingdom; Little Pinocchio Hut and Pirate Ship for the grab & go foods and beverages. We are having our lunch at Talking Tom House Cafe, you can play the game on the table where the table is actually is a PC monitor. We are playing while we waiting for food.

After lunch, we managed to watch the Fantastic Clown Show at the Magical Stage. The show is awesome and the clown create a balloon for my daughter.

My daughter and me have to move to Little Genie House for "The law of aerodynamic" class while my husband and son still enjoying the show. A friendly and nice teacher Mia was explaining to my daughter about the law of aerodynamic with the concept of airplane. She guide my daughter to create a paper airplane for her to more understand of the concept. My daughter is learning while playing at the same time.

After the class, it was the time for our rides. We proceed to Fantasy Drive driving school; my kids must learn driving. Before we go in to the ride, we need to watch video for all the driving rules and missions we going to do for our ride. My kids feel excited for the ride, we are ready for the ride. We are given 5 minutes to visit the places mentioned in the video such as bank, candy shop, petrol station etc. and we must park our car back before time up to get the driving license. We playing the game few times to accomplish the tasks. Yeah, my two kids also pass the driving test! Photo already taken and their license only can be collected after 2 weeks.

Here comes another ride which is Amazon Ride, it was a shooting game ride. Before we go in, we need to watch a video explaining what we should shoot inside, the targets are red and green. Collect as much as points if you manage to shoot the target. My daughter likes this game so much and we play more than three time. We really having fun in the game.

Without realizing, the clock already tick until 4pm and my daughter have to attend the second class "Folding Animal" class at Little Alice Wonderland. The animal that going to fold on that day was a spring cat. My daughter really concentrate and focus to fold the animal. First, she color the cat picture, then she cut and glue the color paper, last fold the spring. She shows it to me and feel proud with her own creation. Good job, girl!

After the class, my daughter moving to Little Cinderella Ballroom. It was no class going on that day, they are happy to allow to play all the gym equipment there. All the equipment are specially design for them, small and cute. They are enjoying doing gym there.

Beside Little Cinderella Ballroom, it is Little Beast Field. They just can't stop playing and continue do their sports at there. It is good for them to do sport. They are full of energy and never feel tired.

We heard some music coming from the Magical Stage, it was the time for the special Little Kingdom performance. We go down to watch the performance, they are singing and asking quiz to my daughter. Nice performance. While we enjoying the performance, surprisingly the mascot appear. My kids just said want to touch and take picture with the mascot. I like this photo very much.

After the performance, it was already 5 somethings. We move to our last destination of the day in Little Kingdom: Mysterious Mars. My daughter was playing the shooting activity with her father. My son want to sit the rotating plane. We spend 20 minutes there and going to leave soon.

Before we exit, we visited Little Elf Factory for photo booth, gifts and merchandise. I like the kids cooking equipment selling there. My kids just feel sad to leave but it was already late.

There are some of the games and classes we are not manage to join this time such as Brainy Play and Cooking Class. Since i was visited on weekday, some of the classes are not available, we definitely will visit it again on weekend in the near future. As a parent, I think this edutainment concepts are very good which allow our kids to play and learn at the same time. It really benefits to both parent and kids, we enjoy the time we play together. It really gave my family a sweet memory.
