I got a cheque worth 50 KidZos after checking into KidZania’s airport. The cheque is included in the price of each child’s ticket.
The purpose of the cheque is for us, children to spend in Kidzania!
But, first, we need to go the CIMB Bank to convert the cheque into money. Not real money but KidZos which is a currency that is only valid in KidZania.
CIMB Bank KidZania KL is very small and cute. Perfect for kids!
Since KidZania Kuala Lumpur is a town with it’s own economy so bank is a very important establishment. Among the things we can learn and experience are:
- be patient and queue in line
- deal with bank officer
- change a chque into KidZos money
- open a bank account and deposit money
- use ATM machine to check balance and withdraw money
Interesting, isn’t it?
I think the activity of dealing with a bank in KidZania KL can develop a more brave and independent children. Definitely a great early childhood development.
I’m only 4 and already knows how to line and deal with bank officers at the counter. Not easy if you’re a very dependent child like I used to be!
When I entered CIMB Bank in KidZania KL for the first time, I was quite afraid to go inside alone. I pulled my mom’s hand and tried in vain to get her to accompany me inside.
But after that first experience in CIMB Bank KidZania KL, I am kind of having fun in that bank. It was an interesting experience to jump into a queue, hand over the cheque to a bank’s officer and received KidZos money in your own hand.
I managed to collect 82 KidZos during my first visit to KidZania Malaysia. At the end of the day, I went to CIMB Bank KidZania KL to open a bank account.
I got an ATM Bank which mom said looks like a real ATM card!
The CIMB ATM card is valid in KidZania KL only but who cares. It’s my very first ATM card.
I can use the ATM card to check my bank account balance at the ATM machine as well as use to withdraw money for my usage in KidZania KL. Do note that we can only withdraw about 60 KidZos at a time.
So, if you have lots of money in CIMB Bank KidZania KL, you need to use the ATM card again and again to withdraw KidZos more than 60.
It’s very easy to use CIMB Bank KidZania KL ATM card. Just insert the card in the ATM machine and select language to display. No need to enter password!
The ATM machine at CIMB Bank KidZania KL is also small and easy to be used by children. However, the transactions are limited to checking balance and withdrawing KidZos money only.
Not a big deal, though. Kids don’t need to know more than that, right?
I collected 188 KidZos during the second visit to KidZania Kuala Lumpur!
