KidZania Doha, the award-winning edutainment concept, and Jotun Paints Qatar, one of the world’s leading producers and suppliers of paints and coatings, have signed a partnership agreement to create a kid-sized Jotun house painting inside KidZania Doha.

The cooperation between KidZania Doha and Jotun Paints aims to provide children with an excellent opportunity for developing their skills and creativity. Inside Jotun house painting kids can role-play as professional painters and engage in tasks like mixing and matching different colors. Supervisors will show the kids how to properly paint using the karate kid technique and will assign a section of the wall for each painter to paint on.

Ric Fearnett, Governor of KidZania said: “We are excited to partner with Jotun Paints, the world’s leading producers and suppliers of paints and coating to serve our local community, indulging kids’ potentials using both hands and mind while having fun with colors and develop a hand craft.” "We are in the final stages of preparing for the opening of KidZania Doha in 2018 and welcoming children from Qatar and all over the world; we are proud that we will contribute to the achievement of the Qatar National Vision 2030 through the development and empowerment of children,” he continued.

Mr. Shashi Kumar, Jotun Paints Qatar Country Manager said: “As a leading international brand contributing to Qatar’s urban development, Jotun is excited to be part of expanding children’s creativity through our paints, as they are the adults of tomorrow. Being part of KidZania gives us a unique platform to creatively interact with children as a brand and give them the lasting positive impression of the importance of paint and color." KidZania Doha, expected to open its doors in 2018, will be located at Aspire Zone in Doha, Qatar, with a footprint size of over 5,500 square meters. It will provide a unique educational and entertainment experience, offering 42 establishments where children aged between four and fourteen years will be able to role play ‘adult jobs’ in up to 60 pretend roles, learning a variety of values including self-reliance, team work, honesty, integrity and giving back to society.

KidZania is the world’s fastest growing family entertainment brand, with KidZania Doha expecting to welcome over 300,000 visitor year-on-year. The establishment will be able to accommodate up to 1,000 children with approximately 250 employees at any one time.
