Shopping malls always be mommies BFF ;D Hahaha true isn't? Yet, since we always do shopping on weekend, and pretty sure it will be with my best companion of my 2 active boys. For us, we always put safety on top of everything. Even most of the parents as well. What we did, we always ensure one of them to be in the stroller while the other one walking with us, but yet most the time tangan sure tak lepas punya. Happened to be now, si active Ryan always wanted to escape and let the big bro on the stroller. Grrrr!! But Adam pun we have to ensure he was being fully monitored as he can escape in blink of eyes. It was so scary nowadays. At the end of the day, the problem wasn't solved when we only put "avoiding" as the solution. I always think that, the big brother should be exposed to safety info when we were at mall or even outside.The prevention would be more effective, right?
When I received invitation for A Safety Rangers Workshop happened during recent school holidays at Sunway Pyramid shopping complex, I'm so happy to attend. It really a good session indeed and I hope to be invited for more kids workshop like this in future. Thanks alot Sunway Pyramid!!
Sunway Pyramid has exclusively collaborated with Disney Pixar’s Monsters University, recently released 3D computer-animated comedy cartoon, to provide lots of exciting programmes and activities for the school holidays including the Safety Ranger Workshop. I have been informed that this is the 2nd year activities and children from selected kindies at Klang Valley have been invited to attend this workshop. The Safety Rangers Workshop is tailored to provide some safety aspects and tips that young children can practice while they are in the mall. The fun mission in which the children have to go through in order to become a full-fledged Safety Ranger includes learning about escalator and lift safety, knowing the steps to take if they got separated with their parents in the mall and being safe in the car.
Hey Mike and Sulley!!
Once we arrived and registered ourselves under Media registration, Adam was set in Safety Rangers suit, ala2 boy scout dah. So cute!!
I'm ready mommy!! yeha..
Adam joined the rest of children to listen on briefing given by the emcee on safety aspects when they were at mall. Tell you, it such a great session. The kids were explain on exact ways to use the escalator, lifts, and even the emergency buttons. They even being taught on how to face the moment when they lost their parents at mall and who they should get for help. The emcee always reminds them to be as close as they can to their parents.
After the short theory briefing, these soon to be flagged rangers were also have to go for practical to ensure they really understand what they been taught. Divided into few groups, the kiddos were line up in pairs and walking to few stations around the mall. Such a cute and informative session! Adam was enjoyed the session so much..
Bawak briefcase ok..=)
They learnt on how to cross the road to the parking area..
And safety action while in the car..
Learnt on how to use the emergency call button..
Yeap, they are short, but they have been taught to get help from adult as well..
And correct way to use escalator too..
Do not play while using the escalator and only used emergency button when needed!
Plus, kids were reminded to remind the parents not to use strollers at escalator as well..
Finally, the children were introduced to safety team where they can get help when they lost or during any emergency..
By providing this platform whereby parents can ease their minds knowing that their children will be able to stay safe should anything happen during their shopping trip, and with the tips given in the workshop, these children can also fend for themselves outside the mall too. Thumbs up!
Graduated Safety Ranger..
Show us ur scary face Adam!!

"Great workshop, thank you Sunway Pyramid"
As prevention is definitely better than cure, children should be encouraged and taught on ways to keep themselves safe, especially in public places. In return, they can also teach and remind the adults on some safety precautions that we need to be aware of when going out for a great day of shopping.
Thanks also for a great lunch we had at The Garden, yumss!!
This is what Adam got in that cool briefcase..
Yup, he got the ranger suit as well..weee!!
We had so much fun there..

Some useful tips while shopping at Sunway Pyramid Mall..
Sunway Pyramid has also come up with the Child Safe Shopping Info Guide and video on “Safety Tips when Riding the Escalators” to provide information to parents and children on some safety tips at the mall. Check out YouTube channel and Sunway Pyramid’s Facebook Page and played constantly on plasma TV at various locations in the mall, reminding parents and guardian to ‘lead by example’ in practising the safety tips.
Sunway Pyramid’s Customer Care also provides Wristbands and Child Distance Monitor to keep parents and guardians aware of their children’s whereabouts in the shopping mall. A free Child Safe Shopping wristband can be collected from any of Sunway Pyramid’s Concierge Counters on Ground Floor and Lower Ground One. Parents can write their contact numbers on the back and the child can wear the wristband, just in case they get separated during their shopping in the mall.
The Beeper (Child Distance Monitor) is used to make sure that the children do not wander too far off from their parents. A ‘sender’ will be attached to the child, and the parents or guardians will get the ‘receiver’. If the child strayed within a certain distance, the ‘receiver’ will produce beeping sounds and vibrate to alert the ‘receiver’. Shoppers can get the Child Distance Monitor at any of the Concierge Counters located on Ground Floor and Lower Ground One.
Sunway Pyramid has also issued some reminders, which inform the parents on what to do if the child is lost. These include staying close to the last location, in case the child comes back to the same spot or contact Sunway Pyramid’s Emergency Phone Number at 03- 749 43101 and the Customer Care personnel and Auxiliary Police will provide immediate assistance.
There is also the Parents Kitbrochure which can be obtained from the mall. It comprises of Sunway Pyramid’s services and amenities for parents and children, making their shopping experience stress-free. These include baby room, buggy rides, child-friendly basins in the washrooms, diaper changing shelves, children stroller, Kiddy Cab and playground, besides the numerous outlets and cool places for kids to have fun at.
