Kids these days are very lucky. Imagine an entire compound built for them where they can play, shop, eat and have a spa massage. This place is called Fun Ranch Center (beside Tiendesitas) where kids definitely rule! It is fast becoming the cool place to spend family time with your kids or celebrate your kids birthday.
We celebrated valentines with Aidan at Fun Ranch and you can definitely see the happiness on his face after the trip. It is best to visit here during the weekdays to avoid the kids crowd on weekends. It is 50% operational and the best places are the Active Fun play area and Little Lambs Spa. Of course, every kids center have the usual kiddie traps in the form of the fun rides such as the merry go round and carousel rides, game centers, and junk foods which we usually avoid to give our kids. Also, there's a Big Red Barn restaurant which was built with kids and family in mind and I'm glad they did not put the usual Jollibee/ Mcdonalds food.
Overall, wonderful place for kids and I do hope they are able to maintain it. Thanks to Leslie/ Helena for the tip on this place. I do hope to meet you in Fun Ranch one of these days :)
8 Tips for the best Fun Ranch Experience
1. Play with your kids @ Active Fun. For kids less than 3 years old, it should be accompanied by a yaya/ a parent (for free).
2. Socks are a must! (for the kids and the parent :)
3. Schedule a Kiddie Massage Spa before you play. This is definitely a must! All kids love this.
4. Go on a Weekday. Little Lambs have a promo discount during weekdays. Avoid the Kids crowd.
5. Bring Extra Shirts. (for the kids and the parent :)
6. Spend 3 hours in this order: Active Fun Play Center -- Little Lambs Spa -- Big Red Barn Resto
7. Prepare a budget of P500/ kid for the entire experience.
8. Don't forget to bring your camera and take fun shots :)

After one hour of playing, we treated Aidan to his first kids spa massage. Little Lambs claims that this is the first Spa-Clinic-Salon for your kids in the Philippines. It is also the first spa place to cater to the Family -- there is a whirl pool for the family and a family room where you can have a massage together with your kid.
Aidan was coughing heavily before having the massage. After the infant massage, the coughing stopped. The therapist shared with us some techniques to massage Aidan's chest and back to stop his coughing. We were surprised that Aidan just stayed lying down for the whole 30 minutes!
