Yesterday, we attended Smart Kids Asia Philippines. It is Asia’s largest educational kid’s fair. Smart Kids Asia, bring together interactive booths, engaging classes and exciting stage perfomances and many other innovative activities for the family to enjoy. It is a two-day event offers opportunities to help parents discover the potential and strength of their child – whether it is in music, arts, sports , culinary arts or in other fields – while at the same time create memories that include play and learning.
Each family ticket is worth P250 and admits two adults and two kids (12 years old and below) or one adult and three kids. Additional passes are available for P50 each for either adults or kid. We went straight to the complementary ticket lane as I had won at Mommy Bloggers Philippines giveaway, so we had a free entrance to the event.
This year’s Smart Kids Asia Philippines is co-presented by Skechers Kids, Nestle Nesfruta, Nido Fortigrow, and Polaroid Philippines. They will be joined by event partners Diwa Learning Systems Inc, DreamWorks’ DreamPlay, Lima Park Hotel, Milna, MindGuru, Moringa-O2, Microdata, and Paracetamol Tempra. All prepared exciting activities and giveaways in their booths.
Also joining Smart Kids are media partners GMA, Manila Bulletin, Manila Times, Manila Standard, Smartparenting.com.ph, Inquirer.net, and wheninmanila.com, as well as sponsors Arla, Bubi, Jollibee, Permethrin Kwell, and Pascual Creamy Delight.
There are various interactive stage activities and performers from the sponsors. And according to the Quest Guide, Nesfruta’s brand special guests – the Kramer family, will join the fruity fun in the afternoon.
My husband and I decided that he will be the one to complete the Quest Guide Stamp page since its getting crowded and so that my daughter can join in the activities.
Kids are also given a chance to meet and greet famous cartoon characters on stage and some booths also have their product mascots like in Gardenia’s booth.
Smart Kids Asia Philippines have “Smart Classroom” wherein kids can have fun activities and workshops inside a small classroom-like venue. They have music, arts, sports, culinary arts classes.
And because my daughter is just turning 2, she didn’t join booth’s interactive activities, but she did enjoy the art activities provided by Arla and Dreamplay booths.
I let Eliana play at Gymboree Play & Music for thirty minutes. They have entrance free of P50.00 per 30 minutes. She played with other kids inside the Gymboree. Gymboree Play and Music provide an environment where children are free to move, play and explore safely. They also provide classes designed by experts in both education and in play, our age-appropriate activities help develop the cognitive, physical and social skills of children as they play.
Quest Guide Stamp Page completed
The first 1500 families that complete the Quest Guide’s Stamp Page get a special goodie bag at the event’s redemption booth. Getting the Stamp Page completed is not easy, you need to obtain a stamp or signature on the booth’s individual box meaning you need to visit each of 38 booths included on the SKAP Stamp Page.
Luckily we take home goodie bag, there are only less than 100 goodie bag that time. If you’re just alone with your kids at the event, I would suggest to just enjoy the fun activities with them rather than roaming around getting stamps/signatures of 38 booths.
Smart Kids Asia Philippines was indeed a fun-filled family event, and I can’t wait for Eliana to fully enjoy by joining each booths’ kids activities and attending Smart Classroom. Thank you so much Mommy Bloggers Philippines and SmartKids Asia Philippines for the wonderful experience.
