Meet Your Child's Newest Cartoon Obsession…Mr Burj
As the world's tallest building (828 meters) and home to the highest restaurant, the Burj Khalifa is iconic. The shining beacon of Dubai is not only a landmark loved by adults living in and visiting the region, but little ones are obsessed too.
So it makes sense that structure has recently had a kid-friendly revamp with the introduction of a comic book character and mascot. Aptly named, Mr. Burj, you'll be able to spot him hanging out in either the At The Top, Burj Khalifa SKY or At The Top, Burj Khalifa viewing platforms.
Aside from the photo opportunities, families will also be able to buy merchandise featuring the quirky character, that was born from the wish of Omar, a fictional Arab boy. Mr. Burj and his pal can be seen on the Burj's social media pages enjoying some "leisurely, adventurous, entertaining and educational experiences." He'll also appear with the mascots of the children's edutainment city, KidZania, and Sonic at SEGA Republic.
A perfect additional just in time for the school break! See the heart-warming cartoon teasers in our gallery.
