Kids can also have fun at the Dubai Shopping Festival
Although the Dubai Shopping Festival (DSF) is one of the best times of year to literally shop till you drop, it’s not exactly the most thrilling for the kids. Luckily, starting from this Thursday up until January 26th, there will be tons of fun activities available for the young ones.

From this Thursday, head to the Mall of the Emirates to find the wonderful world of Masha and the Bear, the recently popular cartoon that all the kiddos seem to be watching. The pair will play with the kids through various creative activities and workshops. If you want to go off and really get into the sales, you also have the option to leave the kids in specific supervised zones to enjoy interacting with Masha & the Bear… instead of following you around from store to store and proclaiming how bored they are.

Some of the older kids who might not jump at the chance of hanging out with Masha & the Bear all day, might prefer to chill in the gaming station that includes several Transformers related PlayStation games (10am-midnight). There’s just one catch, but considering these weeks are all about getting the biggest bang for the buck, it shouldn’t be that hard to achieve. Just show up to Masha’s World/the gaming area with receipts totalling Dhs 450 in order to be able to get your kids inside.
