Singapore's largest theme park plans to tie up with local food and beverage outlets and allow kids to role play as chefs when the theme park opens in early 2015. So far, they have got homegrown chain The Soup Spoon on board.

The company is just the first of a number of local brands that KidZania Singapore is likely to get on board, said the owners at a press conference on Thursday. About 30 companies are expected to help children to role play in different occupations such as journalists, bankers and fashion designers. Electronics company Canon, financial institution Maybank and dairy product company Yakult will also set-up shop there.

KidZania Singapore, which will be on Sentosa's Palawan Beach, will feature a city scaled down to a child's size where children can role-play life as an adult. It is a children's theme park for those aged between aged four to 14.

Housed in a three-storey building, the theme park will cover an area of 7,600 sq m.
