Children at the recent Kidxy.com treasure hunt at Farm In The City.

The Kidxy.com website, which offers information on fun-filled children’s activities, gives parents plenty of options.

IF you have small children, you will know how important it is to keep them occupied. Most parents hunt high and low for such activities. But after a while, it can start to get boring and uninspiring. Children naturally like to explore new things and they want a variety of activities, not the same old stuff all the time.

Kidxy.com allows parents to book children’s activities in a variety of fields including sports, language, music and rhythm, science, technology and culture, arts and crafts, cooking, indoor gyms and playgrounds.

Kidxy Technologies chief executive officer Yong Mien Dee explains the concept behind this innovative website.

WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF KIDXY.COM?

People generally comment that they don’t know where to take their kids for activities and always need to ask around to find out about the best places for them. We thought it would be a good idea to help parents solve this problem and bring together vendor partners to help them gain revenue as well.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Parents can search for activities by price, date, time, age, category and location. Once you have found an activity that you want your child to attend, purchase the discounted activity and you will receive a confirmation email on doing so.

The activity partner which provides the activity will also receive a confirmation email of your purchase.

Next, attend and enjoy the activity! The additional benefit of booking activities through Kidxy is that parents can cancel the booking up to two hours before the event.

WHAT ARE ITS ADVANTAGES?

We have negotiated a discounted rate with the vendors who are listed on Kidxy, so our price per activity will always be cheaper than the vendor’s walk-in price. Kidxy also offers packages from our vendors at discounted prices.

IS THERE A MEMBER’S FEE?

Joining Kidxy as a member is free. To register, visit Kidxy.com and sign up using your email. As a Kidxy member, you will be the first to know about its latest services and sales, and promotional activities.

WHO ARE YOUR VENDORS?

We have over 100 vendors in the Klang Valley. View our listing at https://kidxy.com/vendor/listing

WHAT ACTIVITIES DO YOU OFFER?

Parents can choose activities for their kids from six categories: Indoor and outdoor playgym; arts, crafts and cooking; sports; science, technology and culture; music and rhythm; and language.

ARE THESE ACTIVITIES ONLY WITHIN THE KLANG VALLEY?

Yes, currently we cover activities only within the Klang Valley. We would like to expand and have more vendors on board Kidxy and cover more locations in the future.

WHAT PLANS ARE IN THE PIPELINE?

We will be launching the Kidxy community where parents can share information related to kids and parenting. We will also provide more services within the ecosystem of kids to help make parent’s liveseasier.

For example we have partnered with Riding Pink (Malaysia’s first women’s only transportation) to organise transport to and from school/home/activities, Happy Fresh for fresh groceries to be delivered to your home, BP Healthcare and Doctor2U for convenient medical care and all of these at a discounted rate for parents who purchase an activity with Kidxy.

We recently also launched :

* Kidxy Party: parents can organise birthday parties leveraging on our vendor’s locations that are child-friendly and equipped with fun activities.

* Kidxy Gift Card: This is the perfect present for anyone. Kids will have tonnes of fun with the more than 100 activities available – from swimming to coding. Learning has never been so easy.

Kidxy E-Gift card:

* Kidxy Play More Credits: Buy activities and save with our “play more” credits. By purchasing our “play more” credits, you'll pay less and earn more discounts. With six months to use them, you can enjoy the best activities and work it around your schedule.

* Shop Products: This is an exclusive partnership with Atom and the Dot, a pioneering children's monthly subscription service that provides unique hands-on arts and science projects for kids aged five and above.
