I'm in a phase right now where I'm constantly looking for nice play places in malls where Rain can play go all out and play. I thought there would be one in each mall or commercial center. But surprisingly, sometimes there's none. I tried googling but very little results came out. Like this one time I needed to attend to something at Greenhills and I wanted to bring my little Rainbow, but to my surprise they only had Mini Fun Ranch which is basically a mini carnival (with small ferris wheels, and I think 2 other rides). But what I needed is a cool playground where Rain can slide and run and tumble but not get hurt.
So anyway because of this I promised to write about all the play places that we usually go to, for future toddler moms use ;-)
Today, I'm writing about Kidzville Play and Party Center in Podium!
I remember it was the day of Man Eats World (a food event) in Podium. I took my little Rainbow. But after a while of course she started getting bored. Thankfully, there's a play place on the 4th level of Podium Mall. So we went there and I checked her in. From the outside you can already tell this was an awesome place for toddlers, and moms too!
Take a peek and you'll see that it looks like a mini village for little people. Actually the whole place looks like a mini town.
The registration area was designed as a post office. This is where you fill out forms when checking your child in.
The Cashier is set up as a bank called The Piggy Bank.
The locker area looks like a shoe shop. This is one of the biggest locker areas I've seen in a play place. In fact, most play places don't even have a locker area.
The place is quite big so they felt the need to put a map complete with map legend.
I wasn't sure what time I was going to finish with the event downstairs so I registered Rain and her yaya for the unlimited one.

As you may know, kids and their guardians need to wear socks while inside the play place. Don't have one? You can buy from them for P30 a pair.
|This reminds me of Batibot hehe|
So anyway, in they go into the mini town! It's got a hospital,
Superman's phone booth
A school bus
A farm... I even remember there's a mini "internet place".
There's also a mini room with costumes and hats... like this zebra little Rain is wearing...
and this giraffe hat
and this wolf hat
and this other hat. You get the point.
There are foam blocks everywhere that kids can stack and build with
And on the other side, the Play Maze!
It's got obstacles, mazes, and lots of plastic balls
And the coolest part of all? These three super huge slides!!! (Yep, she totally went down the slide alone. She's my little daredevil!)
And remember I mentioned earlier that this place is also a nice place for moms? Well....
Why wouldn't it be when it's got dainty a nail spa by the entrance?!
There's also a shop for all things girly!

Rain had so much fun playing that this was actually the first time that she refused to come to me as soon as she saw me. Hehehehe. That's why I'll never forget that day she played here. This is actually a long-overdue post. As you can see, Rain is so much younger here). Anyway I really like Kidzville because there's so much play things here for kids! From blocks to slides, to pretend-play. I'm 101% sure your kids will have a blast!
The downside? That Kidzville jingle playing surround sound over and over and over and over and over and over.......
