A few weeks ago I took Darah up to North Carolina to visit my BFF and for our little girls to have great “cousin time” together. One of our adventures was a trip to Chuck E. Cheese. It was Livy’s very first trip to the place where a kid can be a kid, and the third time for Darah, who is by now a HUGE fan.
We visited the Durham establishment, and were excited to hear that they had just received a shipment of brand new games that morning. It was so much fun to be some of the very first people to get to play! We placed an order for our pizza, got some milk for the girls (which I very much appreciate seeing on the menu), grabbed a booth and grabbed some tokens to go play.
Except that the girls didn’t want to go play games. That’s because this Chuck E. Cheese had a full animatronic band and they were mesmerized from the start. After we ate our yummy cheese and pineapple pizza, the girls finally started to notice the room full of fun games, and we were off to play. The girls especially loved the games and rides that took their pictures as part of the fun.
I really appreciate that each and every game costs just one token. Leslie and I had a bit of fun of our own, spending quite a few tokens on Deal or No Deal. Here you will see some shots of us
gambling playing for tickets for our kiddos. Sometimes we did awesome. Other times, not so much!
This holiday season, you can give the gift of fun and laughter by purchasing a Chuck E. Cheese gift card for another family or for your own. The best part is, you don’t have to go to Chuck E. Cheese to pick one up! You can find them at participation CVS, Target and Walgreens stores and can load any amount on them. That’s definitely something I’d love to find tucked away in Darah’s stocking this year. Are you listening, Santa Claus? You know you need to make a Target run this week, so pick up this gift card while you are there!
Win it!: One lucky Stuff Parents Need reader is going to get a super fun guest pass from Chuck E. Cheese, which includes a 1 topping pizza, 4 drinks and 30 game tokens. A few hours of fun, on the house!
