Fun Times At Austin's - Pixie Forest

It is fun reminiscing the good ole times.  One of these days, my girls will bug me to take them out with their cousins for some playground time.  This was done regularly before but because we have not had any handy helpers at home for months now, mommy needs to do all the household chores.  Believe you me, playtime is not as easy as it seems.  It requires a lot of energy not just from the kids but the mommies as well.

The last time we did this, my sister and I went home dog-tired and unable to move until the next morning.  It was a lot of fun though so we do not have any issues doing it over and over again.

When we do take the kids out to play, we usually bring them to Festival Mall where Pixie Forest is.  It is an indoor amusement park with a number of rides and activities to choose from.  We normally spend about 100 to 150 pesos of tokens per child to get them busy.  If your little ones are into trying out rides, it is more practical to get a ride-all-you-can pass for 150 pesos.

When you get lucky, you will find these guys waiting for you to take pictures (and scare your kids).

My girls and their cousins love spending their time at Austin's in Pixie Forest.  It is a huge activity area where kids can jump, slide and make like they are monkeys all they want without bothering people.  I personally do not like their requirement that there should be a guardian to look after the kids.  It gets crowded with all the parents and/or guardians with legs sprawled on the floor.

When the kids get tired, they can sit in front of the television to watch their favorite cartoons.  Just a reminder, if they catch the movie when it just started, prepare to spend another hour and a half with them watching.  Movie date for one-third of the price. :)

All in all, spending time in Festival Mall to keep the kids happy is a treat.  I can't wait to do this again.

If you wish to bring your kids, you may refer to Festival Mall's website for more information.
