Baby Company’s Baby Gear Sale 2017

Shopping has always been a therapy for women.  Do you agree?  Well, this is very true at least for me.  Shopping for clothes, shoes, and bags kicks off stress and acts as an anti-depressant.  Even when you become a mom, the shopping never stopped.  You become a more practical shopper – you shop less for yourself and shop more for your baby! J

Baby Company, one of the country’s go-to stores when it comes to baby needs, is holding its Baby Gear Sale from April 3 to 30, 2017.  Aside from the word shopping, moms like me love to hear another word.  Sale. 

And because a sale seems to draw me to a shop like a magnet, I visited SM City Trece Martires, one of the malls closest to me which has a Baby Company store.  

Now let me show you some of the items they have in sale and the items I like most.

Baby Company’s Baby Gear Sale offers as much as 50% discount on select strollers, baby carriers, and car seats.  Brands such as MacLaren, Chicco, Safety 1st, Apruva, Aprica, Baby First, and Graco are participants of the Baby Gear Sale.  Chicco also offers free Chicco Hippo Gym if you reach a minimum of Php6000 single-receipt purchase.  A Graco Baby Tub or Diaper Bag is also free when you buy a select Graco stroller.

Strollers at 10% off! 

Walkers at 10-20% discount!

Now let me show you my top picks.  This Graco car seat is on the top of my list of must buy.  Original price is almost Php4000, but is on sale for only Php1650!   So mommies close to SM City Trece Martires, grab it now!

Another one I like is the Pockit Compact Stroller.  This will really be on my to-buy list when I have my next baby.  It’s not on sale yet (I will be waiting when they will put this on sale) and it cost Php10,000.  It’s very compact that you can even hand carry it on airplanes!  Very travel friendly.

This Apruva Hip Seat Carrier is part of my top picks.  This is very practical as hip seat can carry babies until they are 36 months, unlike normal carriers which can only carry babies until 1 year of age.  It cost Php1,899.  We bought this. 

I also love this diaper bag, because it looks very sturdy and it doesn’t look like it’s a diaper bag.  It’s from Carter’s and it cost Php699. 

Nursing and feeding items are also on sale for up to 30% off!  Baby Company offers different brands that cater to various people.  There’s Nuby, Avent, Pigeon, Dr. Brown, Disney Baby, Ainon, and a lot more.  There are a lot to choose from.

Nuby at 30% off! 

There are also several selected baby products that are on sale other than the baby gears and nursing and feeding items.

Washcloth from Php299 to Php150!
Three pairs non-slip socks 
from Php199 to Php100!

Cleaning aides (bottle cleanser and 
laundry detergent).
For taking care of our babies’ teeth. 

And here’s what I bought during my visit.  Carter’s diaper bag, Apruva Hip Seat Baby Carrier, Johnson’s Baby Powder, Johnsons Baby Oil, Baby Clean cotton rounds, Lactacyd (because Baby Company sells items for moms too), and Giggles Baby Wipes (because as moms, we can’t have enough baby wipes! Plus it’s on sale too, 2 packs for Php160 J). 

Now that I have shown you these sale items, I know mommies and daddies are very excited to go to Baby Company and shop for their little ones.  All Baby Company stores are participating in the Baby Gear Sale except Hypermarket branches.   

For more information about the Baby Gear Sale of the Baby Company, visit their website or follow them on their social media sites: www.facebook.com/BabyCompanyPH , www.twitter.com/BabyCompanyPH and, www.instagram.com/BabyCompanyPH

PS:  Do buy a Mom Card too.  I did.  It costs Php100.  It will earn you points per purchase just like the SM Advantage card, but will earn you twice as much point when you buy from the Baby Company.

PPS: All these items I posted are from SM City Trece Martires, so if you are eyeing one of these sale items, I suggest you visit them. J

Kidzania Manila ~ Part 2

This post is a continuation of Neo’s adventure at Kidzania Manila.  Since the first time we visited, both Neo and I felt that we needed to be back and explore more of Kidzania Manila, so we went back again.

This time around, Neo opened a savings account at BPI Kidzania branch to put all his savings so Mama don’t need to keep the Kidzoos at home.  We also applied for a PaZZport for Neo costing PHp250.  Pazzport earns Neo extra 2 Kidzoos when he works, and discounts 2 Kidzoos when he spends.

Neo first joined Paskong Kai Saya activity.  All he has to do is give a gift to a select Bantay Bata kid.  He was tasked to wrap the gift.  As a thank you, Kidzania allows the giver (Neo) to get as much goodies from the sponsors for himself as he in can in 20 seconds.

Here are the establishments Neo entered on his second visit.

Construction Worker at Kidzania’s Construction site.  Spent ~ 0 Kidzoos / Earned ~ 10 Kidzoos (8+2).  This is Neo’s first job on his second visit.  Here, he was taught how to build walls.  Kids were tasked to construct walls brick by brick.  The wall he made was not as polished as the other kids, but he was okay with it.

Window Washer at Kidzania’s Construction site.  Spent ~ 0 Kidzoos / Earned ~ 8 Kidzoos (6+2).  This is one job Neo wanted to try during his first visit, but wasn’t able to.  So in his second visit, he made sure to line up for this.  This was a very simple job and the kids were only asked to clean the windows.  Our little boy was humming while washing the windows assigned to him.  He seems happy.

Fire Fighter at Kidzania’s Fire Department.  Spent ~ 0 Kidzoos / Earned ~ 12 Kidzoos (10+2). One of the “favorite” jobs as evident by the long line of kids wanting to experience it.  Here they were taught the basics of being a firefighter in a seminar.  Then they were given a hands-on experience on how to be a firefighter.  They rode a fire truck, rush to the burning hotel, and put out the fire.  Our little boy was one brave fire fighter!

Burger Chef at McDonald's.  Spent ~ 10 Kidzoos (12-2) / Earned ~ 0 Kidzoos. Here, kids get to cook/create a cheese burger.  They were given all the ingredients and a cooking area of their own.  Our little boy was so excited at the thought of creating his own burger that he poured a lot of mustard in his burger.  The kids get to take home and eat their own burger.  The little boy said his burger tasted delicious. :S

Car Designer at Honda Cars. Spent ~ 0 Kidzoos / Earned ~ 8 Kidzoos (6+2).   Since Neo is still young to be able to get a driver’s license (by Kidzania standard), he lined up to design his own car instead.

He designed a very fast car kaya blurred. :P

Police at Kidzania’s Police Department. Spent ~ 0 Kidzoos / Earned ~ 12 Kidzoos (10+2). This job has two components, mainly solving a crime and patrolling the streets.  Neo was assigned to patrolling the streets batch.  Funny was, the kids were asked to look tough.  The staff even told them: Ang mga pulis ay seryoso at hindi tumatawa. 

Paramedic at St Luke’s Emergency Room.  Spent ~ 0 Kidzoos / Earned ~ 12 Kidzoos (10+2).  This is also one of the “favorite” jobs.  The job has a seminar part and a hands-on part.  Kids were asked to listen to the seminar and they were given a chance to ride in a ambulance to help in giving first aid to an emergency situation. 

Hotdog Maker at Purefoods. Spent ~ 0 Kidzoos / Earned ~ 7 Kidzoos (5+2).   This job gives kids the idea of how hotdogs are made.  They were also treated to a hotdog after.

Salad Chef at Lady’s Choice. Spent ~ 13 Kidzoos (15-2) / Earned ~ 0 Kidzoos.  This job allows kids to be salad chefs.  Here, kids create a macaroni salad and they get to bring home their salads for them to enjoy and for their parents to be proud of.

Yummy macaroni salad that the little boy made. 

Ice Cream Chef at Magnolia’s. Spent ~ 0 Kidzoos / Earned ~ 7 Kidzoos (5+2).   This job gives kids the idea of how ice creams are made.  They were also treated to a cup of ice cream after. (PS: No pictures on this job as Papa and Mama are so tired we just took a video).

Neo’s second visit to Kidzania was a very fruitful one.  He enjoyed a lot of jobs, earned a lot of Kidzoos, spent some in activities he likes, and saves the remaining Kidzoos for his next visit.  He is one happy kid J

Kidzania Manila ~ Part 1

Neo was so fortunate to visit Kidzania twice already.  His first time was for his school’s education tour.  Kidzania has a lot of establishments.  You kid will earn Kidzoos in some activities if they work.  They will spend Kidzoos in some activities for leisure too.  Just like in the real world.  You earn, you spend too.

Here are the activities that Neo was able to try during his first visit. 

Customer at BPI.  Spent ~ 0 Kidzooz / Earned ~ 0 Kidzoos.  Upon entrance to Kidzania, kids are given a check worth 50 Kidzoos which they can encash to Kidzoos at BPI Kidzania branch.  They will have have to line up to wait for their turn.  They can also apply for a BPI savings account (Neo did on his second visit) to save their Kidzoos.

Delivery Kid at LBC.  Spent ~ 0 Kidzoos / Earned ~ 8 Kidzoos.  Neo’s very first job is being a delivery kid at LBC.  Here, he was taught how delivery men work.  His assignment was to pick up packages from different establishments and deliver it at the LBC booth.

Electrician at Kidzania’s Construction Site.  Spent ~ 0 Kidzoos / Earned ~ 8 Kidzoos.  Neo’s next job was an electrician at Kidzania’s Construction site.  I wasn’t sure what they did as they entered the site and went up to the second floor.  I’m guessing they were taught how electrician works…? LOL

Snack Taster at Jack ‘n Jill.  Spent ~ 0 Kidzoos / Earned ~ 5 Kidzoos.  This is Neo’s third job – and quite a funny one.  The job is to learn the different tastes of Jack ‘n Jill snacks and to learn how they are made.  Neo is the youngest in the group and he wasn’t paying much attention, except when it’s his turn to taste the snacks.   

Pilot in Training at the Aviation Academy of Cebu Pacific.  Spent ~ 15 Kidzoos / Earned ~ 0 Kidzoos.  This is Neo’s first spending.  He really wanted to try being a pilot and even though the queue to enter the Aviation Academy of Cebu Pacific is too long, he patiently waited.  The area is enclosed so I just waited outside with no picture of him being a Pilot.  He was all smiles when he went out.  I guess he had a nice experience inside.  He even asked he to buy his souvenir photo taken in the cockpit.

Gasoline Boy at Shell.  Spent ~ 0 Kidzoos / Earned ~ 6 Kidzoos. Being a car enthusiast, Neo really wanted to try driving.  But only kids 6 years old above can… and since he was still 4 then, all he can do is assist the drivers as a gasoline boy.  He was taught how to be an excellent gasoline boy at Shell.  He not only put gasoline in the cars but also wipe the car clean.  Excellent service!

Chemist at Pascual Laboratories.  Spent ~ 0 Kidzoos / Earned ~ 5 Kidzoos. Neo’s last job on our first visit was being a chemist at Pascual Laboratories.  Here he was taught how medicines and vitamins are made.  He was made to taste citric juices and taught how operate the machines making the medicines.

The little boy was so tired on his first visit but he was so happy that he really wanted to go back again…soon.
