City of Dreams' Dream Play



I've wanted to check out Dream Play ever since I read about it opening in Manila. I thought it would be a fun place to take kids at. Well, I don't have kids of my own but I do have an adorable godson who happened to be celebrating his birthday in December so I decided to take him and his mom, my good friend from College, Jackie to Dream Play as a gift for birthday and Christmas.


Meet my adorable godson, Jake



Since Jake is only three years old, Jackie and I went as participating adults - okay because we also wanted to play! There's a height requirement at Dream Play - kids must be 100 cm above in order to enjoy all the attractions. Jake according to his pediatrician is already 100cm in height but we were surprised to find out that he didn't meet the height requirement yet when we tried to measure him at the counter of Dream Play. Oh well. So I just paid less than Php500 for him instead of the Php1000+ that I was expecting. 

We met Po from Kung Fu Panda inside Dream Play. Photo op time!



And we tried to get Jake to play this motion sensored type of game. But I guess he was too young. Instead of mimicking what Po was doing, he kept running around and around instead. 




Mommy and son tried this Dino game where the glowing ball needs to be controlled and I think should go into some sort of hole. Not a very successful game for the mother and son duo! For some reason they kept losing track of their ball until it finally hit a road block and before they knew it, it's time up! Ha! Ha!

I quickly found out that my godson can be quite a handful when he's fully energized! Here in Shrek's Swamp Stomp, Jake kept running around and going up and down the stairs. 




Before we went to Gingy's Kitchen, we took a break and had early dinner inside Dream Play. They've got good burgers there! 





And finally we embraced the chef in us when we learned to bake our own gingerbread man at Gingy's Kitchen. 



Tada! Check out our finished ginger bread men! They were delicious to eat too! 




It was a fun day out with my godson and my friend though if you ask me, Dream Play is actually best visited with bigger and older kids so they can go up the stairs, slide down, learn how to fly their own dragon, and whathaveyou. Well perhaps I'll take my other godsons there when they're a wee bit older.
