The Modhesh Fun City (MFC) plays host to many activity zones, rides, theatres and treats, but the biggest and best attraction at the venue is the centrally-located Modhesh Merchandise arcade.

Malah Mohammed, a grade 1 student at Abu Dhabi International School said, “Modhesh is my friend. When I go back to school I want him with me on all my school things. When I see his smile, I feel like smiling too. Last year we bought some books and pencil cases. This time I’m taking a beach ball and a blanket for my bed.”
Among the keen shoppers were Ahmad Ali Shata Ali Al Badawi (7), his brother Saood (5) and their friend, Maroun Khalid Ishaq Hassan Zaiydaani (4); the boys were quick to pick their favourite buys.
“Each year we have competitions with our friends about the number of times we have visited MFC and the many types of Modhesh toys we have bought! When we go back to school we share our gifts and exchange the items as souvenirs. We save up on our pocket money so that we can enjoy here during the summer,” they said.
Sheikha Al Tindi, one of the sales representatives volunteering at the shop said, “Working at the Modhesh merchandise stall keeps you on your toes all the time.
