We had the chance to spend a wonderful afternoon two Saturdays ago at the Robot Zoo, which is located at the 2nd Level of the NIDO FORTIFIED Science Discovery Center. My sister Isabel accompanied me + the little man for this early evening event at the Mall of Asia.

We arrived at the Robot Zoo a wee bit late due to a little emergency, the program has already started when we showed up to register for the event. Many familiar friendly faces are present in the occasion, most of whom are mum blogger friends with their little one in tow. Refreshments were served by Big Chill {I love their refreshing watermelon shake}  along with tasty doughnuts from Krispy Kreme + pizza from Yellow Cab.

Not long after we arrived, the kiddos + grown ups alike are asked to queue so that  we can finally check out The Robot Zoo! The little man looked really excited as he grabbed another mommy blogger friend’s hand to get in line!

The tall robot giraffe welcomes everyone to this electronic menagerie upon entrance, promising only beautiful + interesting things to come! Everyone is excited to see everything that is on display, so we went on to check out the first thing that caught our eyes! Big installations of robot animals, including the platypus, the giant squid, the larger-than-life fly + ant, the enchanting chameleon, the rhino, + the grasshopper, will surely catch everyone’s attention, especially those of the little ones. My son was all over the place in no time, checking out one display after another. I love the idea that this place is really interactive + there are loads of wonderful stuff to get little chubby hands busy! Jared was checking out dials, knobs + bolts. He even had a go at this little racetrack for tortoises, too bad he ran out of turtle shells at the time! 😉

Apart from being totally fun + enjoyable, I also love that this place is also educational + that kids + adults alike will learn loads of new things. The little ones get to check out how chameleon moves his body + head, as well as try to be chameleons for the day, too! The children also discovered how to see using a fly’s vision {I cannot help but try this out myself!}, as well as discover a whole lot of new + interesting things about these animals + how they go about in their daily lives.

The fun + interactive installations of tablets + pads here + there, along with the educational applications + programs found in them, also added another thrill to this place. Even though his little hands can barely reach one of the pads, Jared cannot help but try some of them out. There were educational alphabet, puzzles + number games. There was even an interactive chessboard shown in one of the bigger monitors. I’d say the Php200 admission fee is well worth it!

After we’ve checked out the entire place + took photos of almost everything found in it, including one beside Astroboy, we made a beeline back to where the program was held + while eating + resting our feet, the children are treated to a round of games + prizes, too! The little man particularly had fun seeing all these many kids at one place {you can check out his post, to see for yourself! ;)}. He posed with a lot of other kiddos + tried to participate in the games, too. + even though our group {of course the mums had to pitch in afterwards} did not win, the little man was able to take home a Nickelodeon gift pack, that contains an eco-bag {yey!}, a roller band, and a number of stationery, after all!

Truly a day at The Robot Zoo is a perfect bonding activity for the family. Thank you Geri + Geiser Maclang for inviting us to take part in this wonderful experience! 😉

    My daughter had a great time at the Robot Zoo as well. She learned a lot about how the chameleon and common housefly works. It was truly a memorable experience!
