KidZania Partners with TNG Digital on Cashless Payments

KidZania today officiated their partnership with TNG Digital in collaboration of launching the Touch 'n Go KidZania eWallet app in KidZania Kuala Lumpur upcoming this 2019. A truly new remarkable collaboration that I am looking forward to in the near future (implemented maybe later in May/June 2019) because these days as we move into the era of digital technology, being cashless is cool!


With that in mind, KidZania never fails to also think for the benefit of our children to educate them as well on today's trending market on the cashless economy that is growing fast. As a parent to 2 kids and 1 more on the way, and with my previous working experience in the mobile and technology industry for the past 9 years. I am one of those parent who is generally tech-savvy in today's modern-age where technology is concerned; However, I am also one of those parent who is adamant to introduce gadgets to my children at a young age.


As much as possible, I would love to keep them away from gadgets for as long as I can hold them off for. However, I knew it would only be about time where, they will be exposed to technology today and of course I wouldn't want them to be left behind as well. But with that in mind, if I were to introduce technology to my kids one day, it would be not for them to learn how to play games or watch YouTube. The first thing I would love to educate my children on technology and gadgets, is how to be a responsible user and the responsibility of the pros and cons that comes with it.


Thanks to KidZania, this would be even more easier for me to teach my kids the proper way to use a gadget through technology and the responsibility with it. Through cashless payments, there will be a separate Touch 'n Go KidZania eWallet application that can be installed into the parents device or in a gadget that will be provided by KidZania during their visit to KidZania Kuala Lumpur, to teach kids to utilize the app via a simple username login (which will be their unique username for them to be used again in the future when they come back to KidZania Kuala Lumpur).


This technology will eventually teach kids how to utilize the app and Touch 'n Go when making purchases inside KidZania with their KidZos money that is stated inside their eWallet. This will allow the kids to check their balance in their eWallet and enables them to plan ahead of how to earn more and save more, to be more financial-savvy. Along with this, it will also gives parents a chance to educate their child how to save and not simply Touch 'n Go just for the fun of it because it will spend up their KidZos money instead. This is good because the currency in this dedicated app is not in RM (Ringgit Malaysia) where am sure you wouldn't allow your kids to go around spending your own hard-earned money in the real world now would you? So you will definitely educate them on the Dos & Don'ts and whatnots when using the eWallet as well as remembering their username and keeping it safety protected to avoid from other people from abusing it.


It's basically a win-win situation for both parents and children where parents are given this chance to teach their kids on today's technology as their kids learn to experience it for themselves and realize that there's more to that than just watching YouTube or playing games. They would also have to look after their device properly so they don't lose it! So a responsibility will come with looking after the gadget as well as their own account privacy, and this is one responsibility that would be one of the first few things that I already have in mind to educate my child when they one day learn about all these technology and gadgets.


As the Touch 'n Go KidZania eWallet app is using only KidZo currency, kids will also be able to enjoy perks through the app, like how we adults enjoy them everyday on our TNG eWallet app with rewards, discounts and offers but only for use in KidZania.
