Fun Ranch Partners With Oli’s Boxship To Promote Creative Play

Remember the days of creative play, when sticks would double up as swords, or be used as magic wands?  When boxes could be piled up to form buildings and skyscrapers could be built from building bricks?

Fun Ranch values creative play and tries to incorporate imagination-building activities in its playgrounds, through the use of tunnels, hanging bridges, and pretend-play houses.  Now Fun Ranch takes the wonder a step further by joining forces with Oli’s Boxship.  Oli’s Boxship provides creative craft-based boxed activities, by subscription, to help continue building children’s imaginations, even at home.  Every subscription will entitle each child to receive one surprise boxed activity per month, where he can build, learn, and play at home, for an entire year.

Learn more about Oli’s Boxship when you join this year’s Fun Ranch Egg-Citing Easter Weekend on Easter Sunday!  You may also check @olisboxship on social media.

10 Reasons Why It’s Cool To Play Pinoy Games

By Ana del Rosario

Summer is fun!  With no school work and grades to worry about, it is the season where kids enjoy playing outdoors.  I remember those times when my neighbors and I would be out of our homes by 3:00 p.m. and form groups to play Patintero.  It was girls vs. boys and the line would go as long as 20 meters.  The word “gadget”, that time, was unheard of.

Childhood memories came back last Saturday with Fun Ranch’s Larolympics.   The passion of parents to teach their children games we all grew up with like Tumbang Preso, Piko and Sipa put smiles on our faces.  It was a warm day, we were all sweaty but laughing our hearts out.  In spite of the heat, we still found it cool to play Pinoy games on a sunny day!  Here’s why:

DSC_0832

1.  We had an awesome time exercising.  The “it” during Tumbang Preso was so competitive that kids and their parents ran as fast as they could to score a point.

DSC_0835

2.  “Agawang Panyo” was played like a basketball,  with steals and unexpected passes.  Everyone learned how to strategize.

DSC_0855

3.  Family teamwork was very much alive during Patintero.

DSC_0821

4.  Players gained a new skill and it’s called Sipa.

DSC_0816

5.  There’s physical bonding because families held each other, jumped up and down, hugged and kissed.

DSC_0902

6. Parents demonstrated true sportsmanship and kids learned from their example.

DSC_0851

7.  Waiting for the right time to enter the line during Patintero helped children increase their attention span.

DSC_0819

8.  Sweat built our immunity.

DSC_0842

9.  Piko taught the kids to listen, follow instructions and figure things out while parents cheered on the side.

DSC_0812

10.  Someone once said, laughter is the best medicine.  Giggles, cheers and laughter filled Fun Ranch that day.

DSC_0884

As mentioned during the teams’ orientation, Larolympics is my favorite event because it leaves good memories to all participants.  From mascots joining the games to winning awards, we always end this event in high spirits.

Thank you Pepsi and Lactacyd Toddler Tubs for co-presenting Larolympics.  Thumbs up to Island Cove Hotel and Leisure Park and Champs Chewable Vitamins for Kids for our prizes and to Gatorade and Premier Water for keeping us hydrated that day.

Top 5 Kiddie Party Trends (as of February 2015)

Kiddie parties also have trends, just like clothes, shoes and bags do. Since last year, we’ve noticed that the trend is shifting from modern to vintage and handcrafted. Hence, we’re coming out with this list, our top 5 trends, to update and guide parents who are planning a birthday bash for their li’l ones.

1. Crafted Animal Balloons. Use your imagination to spice up your balloons! And we are not talking about balloon twisting, Mylar or sculpture, but characters that you can create by drawing body parts on a piece of paper, cutting and sticking those parts on your balloons. The rawness will make it unique and full of love!

DSC_0758

2. Handcrafted Table Centerpieces. Why we love this? Handcrafted table centerpieces can work with or without balloons. You can also get creative and use them as containers for candies or any munchies for your guests while waiting for the program to start.

3. Fondant Birthday Cake. Gone are the days when we only enjoy Fondant Cakes during weddings and debuts. A number of parents now opt to have Fondant on their cake table because it “provides a greater range for decoration. With fondant, it is possible to attain a more refined and precise creation” (source: http://www.heatherbarranco.com).

4. Giant 3D Letters. The star of any birthday party is the birthday celebrator. Guests will definitely remember his name and his party.

5. Food Carts. While we grew up with the old fashioned Cotton Candy, Ice Cream and Pop Corn carts, more and more food and beverage are being served and presented in children’s parties on a food cart. Even our well-loved street food Taho and Fish Balls are now part of the growing list.

When A Sale is Really A Sale

By:  Ana del Rosario
Update on this Post:  Mommy Mundo decided to cancel this weekend's sale due to typhoon Glenda. Visit our Facebook page for the next schedule which will happen in August of this year.

I am not a shopping person.  As a Marketing Manager, I always get invites to kiddie events and bazaars for moms.  And even if I am the first to hear about a great bargain, I rarely leave the events place with an item bought from that event.  My friends say that I am the hardest person to sell to (except food!). But thank God for giving me friends and relatives  who shop for me and a daughter who constantly reminds me to update my wardrobe with a big PLEASE at the end of her sentence.  Without them, I would probably be owning hideous and outdated clothes for the rest of my life.

Facade of Sale

On the first day of last year’s Mommy Mundo’s Clearance Clearout Sale, I just shrugged my shoulders when my staff reported that mommies as early as 10:00 a.m. were already shopping and left the sale around noon with bags of items in their arms.

Bugs

On the second day, it rained really hard.  And I told myself, “here goes the sale”!  Despite heavy rains,  shoppers kept arriving and left the room after an hour or two with their full eco-shopping bags.  Hmmm….

Wonder world of Toys

On the last day,  my co-workers spent their break time shopping and raved about the stuff inside.  Everyone’s “panic buying”.  What?!  There must be something in that room.  I went inside then the shopping bug hit me.

Goody’s Hair Accessories at 20-30% off.  If I remember correctly, I also received a sample product after my purchase.

Which statement romper best fits your baby?

Too bad I was not able to take a photo of Little Luee’s Locker’s jammies which I bought for only Php100-150 a pair.

Clearance Sale Flyer 2014

Mommy Mundo will be holding another Clearance Clearout sale this year from July 18 to 20 (part 2 in August).   Learning from last year’s experience, I will check out the sale items on the first day.  Home court advantage!  Join me this year and let’s explore the sale together.

Ten Reasons Why You Should Hold A Birthday Party in Fun Ranch

Parents like us always get excited about our children’s birthdays.   We love planning for their parties and believe it or not, some start planning even before their child is born.  As we are in the business of celebrations, parents often ask us why they should hold their birthday parties with us.  We asked past clients even those in our employ for answers and came up with the top ten reasons why you should hold your birthday party in Fun Ranch.

New Facade

 

1.  WE HAVE EVERYTHING YOU NEED Talking to different suppliers add up to the hectic planning process of a party.  We are a one-stop party shop.  We have everything you need aside from food.  We can book a great host and magician for you, decorate your room and customize your invitation.  And if we don’t have what you are looking for, we can try and help you find it.

2.  KIDDIE THEMED AMBIENCE  What better place to hold your child’s birthday party than at Fun Ranch, with its kid-friendly attractions like rides and indoor playgrounds?  One look and you know it’s for kids.  Do keep in mind that it’s a child’s birthday party. Overview

3.  NO ENTRANCE FEE/ NO ROOM RENTAL FEE Food is a must in any party.  We want you to focus on what food to serve your guests and what you think they like.  We will only charge you for your food order and not for entry nor for the use of the room. 4

4.  THEMED FUNCTION ROOMS A fun looking room adds up to the excitement of guests.  Our all-time favorite themed rooms like barnyard, aquatic and sports give you the vibe you want for a fun and great celebration. We also have several themed backdrops and party decors.

5.  YOUR OWN PLAYGROUND Not all guests come on time and we call this “Filipino” time.  Kids can easily get bored while waiting for the program to begin.  With this in mind, we built a playground in our function rooms for your kiddie guests’ additional enjoyment. DSC_0083

6.  PRIVACY We know that you are sometimes obliged to do fun things during a party like singing or dancing.  That’s normal.  However, it’s embarrassing when there are unfamiliar diners watching while you bring out the child in you.  With this in mind, we let you exclusively use our function room so you can be what you want to be in the presence of your closest loved ones.

7.  YOU WILL NOT RUN OUT OF FOOD It’s hard to estimate the number of guests who will show up.  To rely on RSVP’s is an option but not reliable enough.  The best thing about an on-site kitchen is that your guests will never get hungry should more people than expected show up.  We always have more than enough stock of the usual kiddie party food. MainB Buffet

8.  THE BEST ENTERTAINMENT We’ve partnered with professional Magicians to entertain all your party guests.  And we mean ALL.  If invisibility cloaks do not appeal to you, an interactive Bubble or a jaw dropping Acrobat show will do the trick.  We have a long list of entertainers and continue to discover new talents.

9.  SECURITY You can entertain your guests with confidence because CCTV cameras are installed in every room while security personnel are posted at the door.  While in the thick of things, color-coded stickers can also help you identify invited guests.

10.  THE FUN NEVER ENDS! The end of your program is not an ending to a Fun Ranch celebration.  The party continues with our rides, indoor playgrounds and other activities for everyone’s enjoyment.  Outside is a one huge playground for kids!
