Fun and Adventure at the Robot Zoo

 The Robot Zoo

With my siblings and two house members at the Robot Zoo

Three weeks ago before Christmas Day,  we were at the Mall of Asia and we happen to pass by the Robot Zoo and decided to check it out.  We were like children once again.  

Developed by Evergreen Exhibits and designed by the United Kingdom’s Marshall Editions, the Robot Zoo is actually a traveling exhibit.  It has toured science and natural history museums and zoos in Europe, North America and other parts of the globe.  It was officially opened to the public last June 2012 at the Science Discovery Center Exhibit Hall , Mall of Asia and will run for a limited time  and then it will be moved to Kuwait this year.

The zoo featured eight animatronic giant animals that simulate how they move in real life.  The robotic animals were designed with cutaways that exposed their mechanical interior and can be controlled by the guests.  Highlighted in the exhibit were the following animals : Giraffe, platypus, grasshopper, chameleon, squid, fly, rhino and bat.  Each animal in the Robotic Zoo included some trivia and inteactive games for the kids.

The Giraffe

The Platypus

The Grasshopper

The Chameleon

 
The Zoo is not only a fun and exciting learning tool for children but also a great venue for family bonding

- What? Mall of Asia? I don’t remember seeing this when I was there. I would have loved to experience this uncommon offering.

>It was officially opened to the public last June 2012

- Aha. I visited the Philippines 5 years ago i.e. January 2008.

I tried to do something different when I was at the MoA in 2008, but the choices were limited, so I landed up going for a horror flick. Just to experience something different in a foreign country, you know? The movie was dull as heck and not scary in the least, which was a good thing. Because my reactions to scary scenes in scary movies are, well, scary.

>We were like children once again.

- That’s the best way to be; not just in fun settings, but in many areas of life, too.

- Hi Elvie’s Siblings and Two House Members!

>The Zoo is not only a fun and exciting learning tool for children

- And for children who refuse to grow up. Yup, me. :-)

Another enjoyable post. Good work, Elvie!

Thanks for all your comments Kate and for letting me know that the "Post a Comment" portion of my blog doesn't work. I was able to fix the setting.
