On November, 26th, 2017 the capital’s shopping center "Dream Town 2" will host a family festival Roboland Kids Fest for children from 6 to 14 years old and their parents.

The Roboland Kids Fest event plan will please both children and parents:

• Practice teamwork and pass a fascinating and educational quest on "Secrets of robots?"; 

• Win the battles of robots 

• To gain experience as a puppet theater actor setting a classical fairy tale about Little Red Riding Hood with robots in the lead roles; 

• for selfie lovers or simply those who like taking photos, there will be a photo zone with a photographer and a giant Alpha robot; 

• there are also child psychologists’ consultations for parents. 

After the end of the event young visitors will receive encouragement from Foxtrot and partners.
