The Green Planet and Mattel Play! Town are hosting an exciting kid's event at City Walk

The Green Planet and Mattel Play! Town have joined forces this World Animal Day to put animal welfare in the spotlight.

By jointly hosting a fabulous animal-focused event for children between the ages of two and eight, The Green Planet plans to educate little wildlife warriors on the importance of conservation.

Barney's Animal Adventure kicks off at Mattel Play! Town where everybody's favourite purple dinosaur – along with some of his pals including BJ and Baby Bop – welcomes little buddies to his house where they will enjoy a special animal-themed picnic. Mini animal-lovers can unleash their creativity at the arts and crafts station and test their animal knowledge in a series of fun challenges, plus sink their fangs into a tasty picnic spread.

Then it's off to the biodome where the expert team at The Green Planet will introduce the pack of nature fans to some of their cutest residents including a slow loris and a sloth. The visit also includes a stroll through the region's only bat cave and watching the pirhanas go mad for their supper.

It's time to make the world a better place for our feathered, furry and scaly friends.
Dhs199 (child), Dhs50 (adults at Matel Play! Town), Dhs115 (adults at The Green Planet). Fri Oct 4 and Fri Oct 11 9.30am-1pm. City Walk, Al Safa www.playtowndubai.com.
