McDonald's WWC22

McDonald’s WWC22 : Kylii Kids introduces its Virtual Reality Tower for kids at the McFamily!

Kylii Kids has exhibited at its first McDonald’s international convention : McDonald’s WWC22 ! It was an opportunity to introduce our Virtual Reality Tower for kids to McDonald’s franchisees around the world. It was such a wonderful experience to have both children and grown-ups play and have fun with our McDonalds approved interactive game.

McDonald’s WWC22, the international and major event of the golden arches brand

McDonald’s welcomed more than 12,000 McDonald’s franchisees, suppliers, team members and employees from all over the world to its convention. It was at the Orange County Convention Center (OCCC), one of the largest and most prestigious convention centers in the United States!

The McDonald’s WWC22 reunion was highly anticipated. The participants were looking forward to be re-united after such a particular time.

And for Kylii Kids, it was a premiere! We were very happy and proud to be part of this special event. It was an opportunity to present to the entire McFamily our virtual reality tower for children, approved by McDonald’s for their indoor PlayPlace areas.

The Virtual Reality Tower Kylii View®, a game approved by McDonald’s

With its super cute robot design, which reminds us of a hero from a famous cartoon studio, Kylii View has melted the hearts of the franchisees at McDonald’s WWC22.

Approved by McDonald’s, Kylii View is a virtual reality tower that rotates 360 degrees. It’s a bit like a tourist telescope, but with this one, children can interact with two buttons and discover extraordinary virtual worlds.

Both sizes were available at the Kylii Kids booth at McDonald’s WWC22. There was a baby Kylii View for ages 6-9 and its big brother for ages 9-12.

A 3rd Kylii View was also available at the other end of the convention at the Kompan Commercial System booth (We thank them again for this temporary adoption 🙂 )

Shell children's playgrounds

Shell children’s playgrounds are going phygital!

A new design, a new concept, and of course… new Shell children’s playgrounds! For a few months now, the Shell stations have been wearing their most beautiful shades on their motorway areas!

The Kylii Kids interactive tables and touch desks are shining in Shell stations in a lovely sunny yellow! The new children’s play equipment shines in the motorway areas. And even when it’s raining outside 🙂

To meet families’ expectations more efficiently…

The same old song in the family car! ” How long?”, “I have to pee”, “I’m hungry”, “I’m bored”… That’ s why families are looking for the best motorway service areas before starting their trip. The ones with dedicated services… Like the Shell children’s playgrounds for example! That’s why they are deployed!

And, because children have new digital expectations, these corners mix physical wooden games with the new interactive Kylii Kids games.

 Shell Kinderspielplätze

Make friends during the stopover!

On the menu at the Shell motorway service area: stretch your legs, shop around, have lunch, drink a coffee before setting off and then, most importantly… let the children make new friends around the Kylii Kids touch table!

The Kylii table is a collaborative game that can welcome up to 6 players simultaneously! A new interactive activity to play together, make new friends or have fun with your parents. It offers a catalogue of games on intelligent themes such as science, nature or the environment…

The Kylii table takes a central role in the Shell children’s play area. Next to it are two touch desks. These desks are equipped with more than sixty interactive games on playful and intelligent themes (sport, food, nature). The first desk is equipped with a seat. And the second is adapted for children with reduced mobility (PRM).

Finally, a wooden game hanging on the wall adds a physical touch to this Shell children’s playground concept.

Shell children’s playgrounds: a deployment that is fast growing!

You can now find our Shell children’s playgrounds in the Les Haras area, the Villeneuve Vauluisant area, the Keskastel West area, the Villeneuve l’Archevêque area and the Vémars EST area 🙂

And in other Shell motorway areas very soon!

Interactive floor Tivoli UHC

Interactive floor Tivoli UHC : Welcome children with games in the hospital

After almost two years of work in La Louvière, a whole new building is opening at the Tivoli UHC (University Hospital Centre). A new structure dedicated to children’s care: “La Polyclinique de l’Enfant”. In this clinic, everything is done to ensure that the visit of the little children is a stress-free experience. This is why Kylii Kids has installed an interactive floor  Tivoli UHC to help them wait in a comfortable environment.

Interactive floor Tivoli UHC : Several interactive games for children

With the Kylii Kids interactive floor, children’s imagination can be alive! They are free to invent stories, explore and dream of adventures… Thanks to a video projector and a 3D camera, the floor is animated under their feet! Exploring a treasure island, playing hide-and-seek with forest animals or observing the ocean abyss… Young patients can immerse themselves in a virtual universe with a very wide range of themes.

Put kids at the center of the clinic and provide waiting areas designed to be child-friendly.

Thus, the objective of the building is to keep the child at the centre of attention in order to increase the comfort of these little patients.

We want to make the building live over the years and seasons around the world of the child. What drives us is to see the young patients and their parents happy… We have made sure that the waiting areas are fun for the children, and there will be entertainment modules adapted according to age. We have made sure that the waiting areas are fun for the children, and there will be entertainment modules adapted to the different ages”, says Dr Roxane Rossignol, Head of the Paediatric Department.

After Nancy Laxou, the KFC Furiani interactive play area has been set up by Kylii Kids. Augmented Reality games and a tactile table are now available for little corsicans in this amazing brand new interactive play area ! 

A phygital concept for upcoming share moments

In this fully phygital concept, KFC has chosen to offer mixed, complementary, varied and collaborative experiences. In the play area, we find both a traditional tubular structure and digital games made in France by Kylii Kids.

First, on one side of the KFC Furiani interactive play area, children will have fun with their body movements thanks to the Kylii Air Totem. An augmented reality solution that turns a simple screen into a magic mirror. You can fly a plane just by lifting your arms, put on all kinds of virtual garments like magic… Or even perform a new sporting activity… In total, nearly 40 games available to play, move and stimulate the imagination of young people from Furiani.

Then, on the other side of the digital play area, children will also have the opportunity to play around the Kylii Touch Table. The Kylii Kids Table is multiplayer and allows up to 6 children to play simultaneously. More than 24 cooperative and collaborative games are available on themes both fun and smart. (ecology, fashion, science, nature…)

KFC Furiani interactive play area, a way to get ready to prepare the upcoming reopening…

For now, KFC’s restaurant in Furiani has not yet fully reopened its doors (only for take-away sales). But this project is part of the aim to attract and develop families loyalty. Since the idea of “pleasing the children” is the main motivation for family meals in a restaurant, getting ready for the return of families also means setting up a nice play area for the children.

From the order to the installation of Kylii Kids Games

Interview with Benjamin, Kylii Kids’ Technical Manager

Hey Benjamin! You are Kylii kids’ Technical Manager. Long story short, when a customer orders Kylii Kids’ products, you take over (Purchasing, logistics, interventions schedule and after-sales service).

Why did you choose to join Kylii Kids?

I have known Kylii Kids for a few years now. And, I’ve followed its growth from the very beginning. I immediately feel that the interactive children’s play areas were an avant-garde concept. I saw an incredible potential in it!

So when Johann Gobe, CEO of the company asked me to join the team, I found the idea very attractive. He was looking for an experienced and trustworthy technical manager. I was looking for the opportunity to use my knowledge and skills acquired in an innovative and fast growing company !

When did you join the company ?

B. P. – I joined Kylii Kids 4 years ago. What stuck to me when I joined the team was the wonderful welcome I received ! I discovered a dynamic team with exceptional commitment and motivation.

Moreover, it was during the large deployment of children’s interactive corners with Flunch (editor’s note. Flunch is a family F&B and more than 80 Flunch restaurants have been equipped with Kylii Kids interactive games these last years.) We can surely say that I had to catch up quickly as soon as I arrived !

Also, when I joined the team, Kylii Kids was starting to grow fast internationally. So, I had the opportunity to take some english lessons to improve this skill upon my arrival.

What is your role at Kylii Kids

B. P. – Basically, when a customer orders Kylii Kids’ products, “I take care of everything.” I mean, I am responsible for purchasing, monitoring, equipment preparation, interventions schedule, up to the delivery and installation at the customer’s establishment.

When a customer chooses to install our interactive playground solutions (Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality, Touch tables…), I make sure that all quality and procedure processes are respected. Clearly, the goal of my job is to make the customer happy and satisfied.

When we do our job well, “your start to have positive feedback on the market”.

That’s why we are constantly working our processes to strengthen our customer relationship. We are focused on customer care, support and technical excellence to high level quality to build a long-term and trustful relationship with our customers.

What is your most amazing deployment experience ?

B. P. – I would definitely say the “Primark Café with Disney” in Birmingham.

Installing our interactive games in the biggest Primark in the world was really challenging!

We have deployed a large part of Kylii Kids range with different and multiple interactive gaming experiences such as augmented Reality, touch tables, interactive floor and interactive individual screens .

That was a team’s project because we have personalized our games with Disney graphics. All of Kylii Kids’ skills and expertise were needed, from IT development to graphics to project management… And we can be proud of the result!

Feedback is amazing. The children’s area is always full. Clients are now lining up to enter the “Primark Café with Disney”!

Now could you tell us how you became a technical manager? What were you doing before Kylii Kids?

B. P. – I started studying technic and technology very soon, since highschool (mechanics, electronics, machining, electricity, production management). Indeed, I’ve always been a jack of all trades, I really like managing productions, bringing new ideas … I needed a job which moves all the time.

After being a technician in production management in a very versatile position for 14 years, I have then taken the post of production manager in a large workshop. This is a job during which I had the opportunity to manage a team of 25 people for large-scale event projects (Tour de France, Football World Cup …).

Apart from having the happiest customers in the world, what are you doing ?

B. P. – I try to spend as much time as possible with my wife and children. Because for me, family is really super important.

I am committed to supporting my sons in their activities (soccer or basketball training). I also try to take some time for myself, through sport, whether it’s mountain biking or going to watch soccer games.
