Exchange XKids Community Hub Page Connects Kids with Family-Friendly Activities

Exchange XKids Communty Hub pageDALLAS – Military families can find fun together this fall with the Army & Air Force Exchange Service’s XKids Community Hub, a one-stop shop for free, kid-friendly activities.

Parents and kids can join the fun at ShopMyExchange.com/XKids. Military families can click on the red “Explore the Room” button to be transported to a virtual playroom packed with kid-friendly videos, Disney-themed activity pages, in-browser games and more.

Parents can also check out a full calendar of events to plan their at-home family fun around, including free, military-exclusive movie screenings courtesy of Disney such as “Incredibles 2” (Oct. 23) and “Frozen 2” (Nov. 26). Online screenings are a first for the Exchange.

“We have transformed the XKids Community Hub into a virtual playground for military kids,” said Air Force Chief Master Sgt. Kevin Osby, Exchange senior enlisted advisor. “With so many activities coming up, we’ll have a little something for everyone—and even a few surprises.”

Military kids can also visit the Hub to meet the seven new members of the XKids, the Exchange’s crew of in-house toy experts that includes military children. XKids will offer top toy videos, host red-carpet events before and after movie screenings, and more through the end of the year.
