How do you spend quality time with your kids? It is not a tough question but the answer to that is always challenging. In this fast moving world, especially when we have limited time, we end up taking our kids to a mall or a movie. I won’t exactly call it as spending quality time, though our kids might seem happy with it. With most of the options already ticked off and when we felt there is nothing more to entertain our kids , we heard about, a Playdate by Full of toys. It is an interesting option and let me share all the details with you all..
Playdate is an hour long slot at Full of Toys, Bangalore. You and your child can play with any toy in the store and have fun. I recently got invited to review this place and I must say that its awesome!
You can believe it seeing the happy faces of me and my boy. You can find games from age of 4-12 years. It is great to note that all the games there are not the usual ones you come across in other toy shops. The games are challenging with easy to hard levels and built in a way that , it will keep your child occupied for hours together. We started with an interesting game called Zingo. This innovative game is played by matching the pictures and words on their challenge cards with the tiles revealed in the Zinger device. This is a 2 player game and the first player with a full card wins the game by yelling “Zingo!” You and your kid can have a friendly competition and your kid will learn many words and even numbers through this game.
Then my husband, Shiva and my kid Arhaan moved to play a game called Rush Hour Junior. My boy is crazy about cars and this game stole his heart. It is a puzzle game which challenges you to bring out the ice cream truck which is stuck in traffic. It is a 40 level game that uses cars, trucks, and hurdles to sharpen your child’s problem solving skills. I had to ultimately buy this game for my child or he was not even ready to leave the store without it! I’m glad I made that decision as he truly enjoys playing with it everyday.
I also watched other parents and kids having some fun. I could see that the kids were having fun and improving their learning skills at the same time. You can play games like Tangramino which is a 3-dimensional puzzle game and helps your kid to solve puzzles with different shapes. You can also enjoy Architecto game which helps your kid to understand equilibrium, balancing and problem solving with different 3D shapes. Your kid can even enjoy a simple stacking game and let him smile when the stack falls 🙂 ..
I have come to really appreciate “Full of Toys” for introducing such innovative toys sourced from across the world and the concept of playdate in Bangalore. These mind challenging and innovative games are definitely a great alternative to cartoons and Television bound children. Not only do they help in creating an out of the box thinking among children, it really gives a genuine bonding time between parents and kids. We are able to see a marked difference in how Arhaan approaches these games and how he questions with curiosity a lot of pointers in many of the other games we played. So, book a playdate today and have some fun with your kids and make sure you also get to go out of your house and have some fun.
