AEON Fantasy Group Philippines, Inc., a Japanese company that specializes in indoor playground, has recently opened its 17th Kidzoona branch in Shangri-La Plaza Mall.
The name Kidzoona is a combination of the words "Kid" and "Kizuna" - the bond shared between a parent and a child.
Last week, my daughter and two of her classmates visited Kidzoona on a weekday afternoon. We were there after lunch. As expected, the fantasy park was not full. My toddler was able to enjoy all the facilities that the park has to offer.
The indoor playground was huge. It was segregated into six (6) play areas:
Role Play Town
This is a small town for children
At Role Play Town, your kid can be a doctor, a pastry chef and an ice cream shop owner all in one day! This area was where my daughter spent most of her time because she loves pretend play.
Just look at those two giant Running Wheels or popularly known as "Hamster Wheel" in the photo! My daughter and her playmates enjoyed laying down inside while I roll the wheel from left to right ; p
Let's play with big size toys and table toys!
This corner brings out imagination and originality through lots of assembling actions.

There are puzzles, doll houses, blocks and trains. You name it, Kidzoona's Toy Corner has it!
My daughter enjoyed running and jumping on Air Track. You can jump, roll and run on the track!
The Ball Pool area contains approximately 100,000 white and blue mini playground balls. This corner also has a 5 meter Inflatable Slide.
I am a scardy cat when it comes to height so imagine my fear when my daughter asked me to accompany her to the inflatable slide. She wanted to sit on my lap as we slide.
I had no choice but to give in. We slide down not just once but twice. I was so scared I scraped my elbow in the process huhu I only noticed the pain after the second time.

One of the staff saw me touching my elbow. She quickly offered a first aid- an ointment and an adhesive bandage. She said you have to either cross your arms or lift them up. The instructions are clearly posted with illustrations. It was entirely my fault, I didn't cross my arms because I was trying to slow down our drop and I was really scared. You should hear me scream as we slide down ; p
There's a smaller inflatable slide beside the 5 meter one. This one she can manage on her own. Just look at her giddily sliding down in 3... 2... 1!

Parent and Guardian Lounge
Can you spot the Parent and Guardian Lounge right beside the Locker Area? Sorry, I was not able to take a closer photo. The area has several couches for parents to relax.
After 3 hours of jumping, running and pretend play, the little ones ended their day with a cup of ice cream to share among themselves. My daughter's energy level was so high, she can't stop talking about Kidzoona that night. She had so much fun, I promised her that I will be taking her back before the school begins.
