Little Explorers Partners with National Geographic Kids to Create the Excitement of the Rainforest in Playnation, Mirdif City Centre

Dubai, United Arab Emirates, June 4th, 2012 – As the buzz of Dubai Summer Surprises hits the malls of the UAE this June, Little Explorers at Playnation and National Geographic Kids will bring the life of the Amazon to the UAE while leaving the heat of the desert outdoors.

Unique to Little Explorers until September, families visiting Playnation at Mirdif City Centre can experience the call of the wild. National Geographic Kids will build a unique exhibit inside the venue that will offer kids and families the opportunity to see, hear and simulate the inspiring experiences of the Amazon rainforest and invite adventurous children to climb aboard the Safari Elephant and a Safari Adventure vehicle. This special new addition, can be experienced with a Little Explorers day pass (worth 130AED) giving visitors access to this exclusive mini-jungle and unlimited time inside the attraction.

 Little Explorers currently offers five distinct zones designed specifically for children between the ages of two to seven.
This summer, the Little Explorers shop will also have a toy range from National Geographic for those wanting to take home their very own piece of this new jungle zone. The range includes a whole host of safari-themed toys and pint-sized animals.  Visitors can also buy their own personalized photo from the Little Explorers shop to remember their experience.

“We are delighted to able to partner with such an esteemed organization that joins us in our ambition to bring interactive and dynamic educational experiences to families in the UAE - this is a wonderful opportunity to work with National Geographic Kids to raise awareness about breathtaking environments and unusual animals. We look forward to welcoming guests to experience this innovative new offering at Little Explorers and working with National Geographic kids to offer a unique, fun and memorable experience that can be enjoyed away from the heat of the outdoors ,” added Omar El Banna, Marketing & Sales Director, Maji d Al Futtaim Leisure and Entertainment.
