My baby is growing up so fast. It was just like yesterday when he started learning how to walk on his own. And last Feb 11, he already had his first social activity. He got the chance to play and socialize with other kids on the play box for the first time. Yey!!!
Play center, or we usually call it as a play box, is a place where parents can leave their kids to play while they shop on the mall. One of the play centers here in Manila is in SM San Lazaro which is Tots and Play. The place is packed with fun and safe toys for kids. You can leave your kids here for a specific amount of time, minimum I think is for a half hour. Children below 2 years of age should be accompanied with a guardian inside the play area. But otherwise, kids can safely stay here while the grownups are doing their groceries or whatever.
I really like the play area they have at Tots and Toys because it’s very kid friendly. The place is clean, the toys look like they’re well taken cared of, the playhouse, slides and other play structures are made of child proof equipment with no sharp edges or anything that may be harmful to the kids. My husband is even considering getting play structures like that to place on the rooftop at home. Haha!!
They also offer activities like story-stelling, movie-watching and other recreational stuff. But since our little one is not yet keen to this activities, we just let him roam around and play with the toys and other kids there.
An hour’s stay at the play box costs Php 170.00. A little pricey I know. But seeing Kharl very happy and learning to socialize with other kids, that 170 pesos is totally worth it. Visit the place at the lower ground floor of SM San Lazaro and bring your kids with you.
