From dancing with their favourite cartoon characters to getting clicked with them, the fifth edition of the World Children Expo gave the young ones a platform to celebrate India’s 69th Independence Day in the company of their toon friends.

Apart from shaking a leg and clicking pictures with their favourite characters like Kisna, Pokemon and Angry Birds, the children also showcased their talents in several competitions including dance, fashion show and paintings.

The three-day event held at Ambience Mall, Gurgaon acquainted children to an all new dimension of fun and entertainment together. It was an attempt to redefine digitisation with physical fitness of children.

Kidzania edutainment zone and Robotic zones were created at the venue that provided the little ones with an opportunity to learn new things.

The event’s major attractions included Discovery Kids’ famous character Kisna and his hometown of Anandnagri, an Angry Birds zone and the Pokemon gaming corner.

There were also several learning programs by Klaverkid.com - which had set up stalls, allowing kids to learn science through different games, keeping them engaged.

Kunskapsskolan and Kingdom of Kids stalls provided the children with a new way of learning with toys, paints, art and craft.

Aakriti, a 12-year-old sixth grader says, “This expo is really nice, but what I liked most is Anandnagri. I clicked many pictures with Kisna, Pokemon and Angry Birds and danced with them.”

Commenting on the initiative, Rahul Gupta, organiser of the show tells Metrolife, “World Children Expo 2015 witnessed thousands of ticketed footfalls. It was really overwhelming to see how children actively participated in the competitions and other activities. I think our purpose is attained to entertain and educate kids and at the same times nurture their skills.

We plan to come up with more such innovative expos which will help in the growth and development of the children through riveting programmes.
