Little visitors (and adults) visiting the Burj Khalifa's At The Top and Burj Khalifa SKY will be welcomed by the venue's new mascot - Mr Burj. And if you take a real fancy to the bright blue character, then he's available for personal meet-and-greet sessions and photographs too.

The character was conceptualized from the wish of Omar, a fictional Arab boy, to have his toy come to life. And voila! It was the arrival of Mr Burj who takes him on some leisurely, adventurous, entertaining and educational experiences.

Merchandise of the mascot will soon be available at the viewing deck and the Burj Khalifa retail store on the ground level of The Dubai Mall. Children will soon spot Mr. Burj at KidZania and Sega Republic.
