During their school break, children can participate in the country's first edutainment fair at Impact Exhibition Hall 3-4, Muang Thong Thani on Oct 24-27.
Organised by Rukluke Group and Worldex, the "Kidscovery World: Tales & Toys" aims to enhance the learning process and imagination of children between the ages of three and 12.
This world of creative education is divided into two zones. The Toys zone gathers several fun games and activities, including a giant board game and Doraemon and Disney activities. Children will meet their favourite mascots and watch cosplay shows. More than 100 booths will offer an array of toys.
The Tales zone is presented under the "mini indoor theme park" concept, which invites children to enter the world of fairy tales, have an adventure in the magical mirror forest, meet Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, visit the confectionery house and dessert garden of the Wicked Witch, and see the giant beanstalk, slider, giant eggs and hens.
There will also be a parade of clowns, magicians and a daily stage show of four classic tales _ Little Red Riding Hood, Jack And The Beanstalk, Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs, and Hansel And Gretel.
Another highlight is a kids' fashion show where young models will transform themselves into little princes, princesses, superheroes and cartoon characters.
Visitors are encouraged to donate toys in good condition to disadvantaged children in the orphanages under the supervision of the Ministry of Social Development and Human Security.
After the Bangkok stint, the fair will move to Central department stores in three major cities _ Chiang Mai on Dec 27-29, Udon Thani on Jan 10-12, 2014, and Surat Thani on March 28-30, 2014.
