Just sometime back, my twinadoes had an invitation to attend their friends’ birthday party. Papa also obliged to join us and we had an experience of a lifetime! There have been fthun birthday party venues in Noida that are fairly new, and we never knew about! We reached this particular location and were blown away. It was a play area with a twist – so they had separate sections for older kids and younger kids, making it a more reliable option. While kids enjoyed their day at the birthday party, the twinadoes gave me a sleepless night, craving to go back to Playbox Kids. So next day we did take them with us to Playbox Kids and explored the vicinity even better. I truly feel that Playbox Kids is one of the most happening Birthday party venues in NOIDA. Let Mummasurus take you to a tour of this rocking place!
Playbox Kids – The Rendezvous
Playbox kids is located in the Lower ground floor of Gardens Galleria Mall, Near The Great India Place, Sector 37, NOIDA. As you reach there, you see card-operated games, huge buses, Tom & Jerry ride-ons and other such games. It was a task to drag the kids from there so we could get inside the play area at all. You then reach the reception where you have to register and share your details, including your phone numbers, so if you are not around and the child needs you, you are just a buzz away.
Parents are given pink bands and kids are given blue/orange bands and are greeted with a smile. There are lockers where you can store your items, just in case you are back from shopping or so. You are also required to take your shoes off in the vicinity, yet, mandatorily have socks on at all times. In case you’re not carrying any, you can buy a pair from the reception.
Playbox Kids mainly has 5 Sections:
My Burrow (Play area for 2 – 4-year-old kids)
This play area is a complete soft zone and has very interactive and fun games for children above 2 years old and about 4 years old. It has small window games, slides & tunnels, corners dedicated to building a wall with sponge bricks, or using tools for engineering like the hammer. They also had a corner dedicated to role playing as a cook. They also had a massive ball pool with flying balls in between. My kids had a crazy time here. They were constantly on the go.
Here is a picture gallery of the time spent in “My Burrow”
My Maze (Play area for 4 to 10-year-old kids)
This play area involved activities of rigorous play meant for kids 4 years & above. This area has huge air & ball guns (all absolutely soft & safe), big tunnels, bridges, slides, trampolines & hoppers. They do have helpers & attendants in both the play areas to assist the children and keep them safe while they have a blast.
Snack Box (Cafeteria)
The Snack Box or the cafe area is well-lit. The food served is totally healthy, as the company absolutely believes in the NO JUNK policy. Healthy food materials like honey instead of sugar, yogurt, whole wheat flour for breads, freshly cut fruits, air-fried & baked items instead of deep fried items are used. The cafe area is also strategically located around “My Burrow” and the “Show Box” where parents can keep an eye on the little ones in these areas, while they enjoy a quick snack or a coffee.
Here is a picture gallery of the yummy food we tried.
Party Box (Birthday Hall)
The Party rooms are well lit and beautifully decorated. The rooms are large enough to occupy 30-35 adults at a time, with kids. These rooms can be merged if the attending group is a rather larger number of people. The seating is comfortable and there is enough free space for kids to play games at the birthday celebration.
Show Box (Activity Stage)
Show Box is a studio that is designed to conduct workshops. These can be for parents, while the kids enjoy their time in the play area. Or for parents & kids, learning things together and bonding better.
Some Card-operated Games at Playbox Kids – one of the most Happening Birthday Party venues in NOIDA
Price of their Services:
My Burrow & My Maze play areas are chargeable at Rs 400 for the first hour on weekdays (Rs 500 For the first hour on weekends). Thereafter, the charges are Rs 200 per hour, on all days.
Food is available a la carte, as per price mentioned on the menu.
Card-operated games are also available as per prices mentioned on the machines.
Party Package details are available on request.
There are certain things that are phenomenal!! I loved these aspects at PlayboxKids:-
There is a minimum height criterion in both of the play zones, which ensures that kids participate in activities that suit them most. A 4-year-old high energy kid may want to go to the Maze instead of the burrow and vice versa for a moderate energy kid.
There is a Barricade at several points ensuring safety. So just in case, a kid feels like a tornado and wants to run around or wants to walk out unaccompanied, the same can be managed and controlled.
Even if you have a day to just while away, grab hold of some of your friends and let the kids play in the area, while you and your friends sit down to have a coffee and some chit chat. I met this gorgeous lady there who was out to have some ‘Me Time’, as one of her older kids played in ‘My Maze’, while she sat down with a coffee and a fresh fruit salad, offering the same to her 8-month-old.
There is first aid and other help available at all times.
They also have donation boxes where you can drop in your kids’ old clothes and toys. The kids learn to drop these items on their own, thus learning the virtue of giving, and letting go of their old favorites.
In the “My Burrow’ play area for younger kids, a parent is allowed to accompany the child. However, it is not mandatory.
The kids will be so happy & exhausted by the time you leave, that they’ll crash and fall asleep. (That’s the biggest plus if you ask me!)
Why do I call Playbox Kids one of the most Happening Birthday Party Venues in NOIDA?
There are Abundant attendees in the play area to assure security & safety of the kids. You will also witness the staff being playful with the kids, adding on to their fun experience.
The birthday events are well organized. The hosts just have to come and celebrate, the rest can all be managed by the Playbox Kids team. (Some services are included in their packages and some are additionally chargeable)
The food served to kids is totally healthy. Smoothies are made of yogurt and Honey, pizzas are made of brown bread, snacks like french fries or nuggets are air-fried. They also have a variety of salads & fresh-cut fruit platters that will make it a delight for the kids. So an ABSOLUTE NO to junk food.
Their birthday packages not just involve food, but also a playtime in the play zones which is a riot. Kids with all their friends, raiding the play zone – it is a treat to watch all the kids go berserk with the excitement. It’s a happy chaos among a generation which would prefer staying glued to their gadgets. This is one of the key aspects that make Playbox Kids one of the best birthday party venues in NOIDA.
Their birthday celebration areas are 2 in number. So you may use anyone for a smaller group. If you have a larger group, they can merge the two rooms completely and arrange for fun activities accordingly. I really liked this idea, so you have a close-knit small group or a spacious enough large group!
If the group is heterogeneous, with kids across age groups, it sweetens the pot as Playbox Kids have engaging play areas for kids across age groups.
- It is going to be difficult trying to pull your kids out of the play zones. They are going to be so happy, that taking 2 hours for a minimum is the only thing you could do. So if you have an urgent appointment, this may become an obstacle in your punctuality. It’s good to take some extra time at hand before you register your kids for a certain time.
- The place could seem expensive to some.
- Some foods may not taste as awesome as their unhealthy versions, but you only get the healthier versions as the company sticks to the value (and rightly so!)
- No other mascot or cartoon, except J are permissible.
