Most new parents would agree that by the time their kids could walk playing at an indoor playground is a must! So, when I learned that KinderCity Evia’s indoor playground is back, I knew to take her again!
Fast forward to the pandemic times, play areas like this was close shut for months. Some were forced to close down permanently, like KidZania, that play place will be forever missed! Now that are things are slowly opening while COVID cases are going down (at least for now), we as a nation has to adjust with the times. Everyone, I mean the vaccinated ones, will be able to return to the whimsical play town in the city. All you have to do is book your slot and pay your ticket online.
KinderCity is continuing to grow! From a handful of play areas, they now have a total of 10 branches with the NOMO branch in Molino, Taguig and Naga added recently. It tells us that this indoor playground isn’t going anywhere but everywhere. For as long as there’s Vista mall there’s going to be KinderCity, too. The first branch we tried was KinderCity in Sta. Rosa.
We can’t wait to visit more this year!
What compelled me to visit was their dedicated schedule for the younger kids. Toddlers have the morning until the afternoon to play in the whimsical play town. By afternoon and until the mall closes, bigger kids could enjoy the indoor playground.
What to expect inside KinderCity Evia
Updated KinderCity Evia Admission Fee: 1hr for P 400, and, a Companion pays P 120
KinderCity is a mix of a fantasy and real-life town with a touch of whimsical design. Every nook and corner has incredible toys and plays areas for children. I had fun taking photos and videos of the whole place until I was told I couldn’t use my mirrorless camera anymore. DLSR and mirrorless cameras require permits before you could use it in the play area. But don’t worry, parents and other guests could use mobile phones for taking photos and videos of their kids. Just remember to be mindful in taking pictures in any public place.
What are the play areas at KinderCity
KinderCity Evia has more than 15 play areas in their Evia mall branch. So, an hour-long playtime won’t be enough for your kid to try everything. Go through the photos to see a few of the toys and play areas available at KinderCity Evia.
Gingerbread Café and a Mini Loft Home greets you at the entrance.
Let your kids simulate living in their own tiny apartment in this Mini Loft Home. It’s big enough for a little crawl space for the grown ups and sturdy for a bunch of kids. Just don’t forget to remind your kid to wait for their turn patiently! And as much as possible, avoid using the mini bedsheets here, the ones Kerrigan’s playing with was the setup from 2019 so I think they have removed anything that could absorb moist.

Any mini Jack Sparrow wannabe will be delighted to see an almost real-life pirate ship complete with a buoy and a helm. Unfortunately, these days the helm has been unattached for quite sometime now. But it does not mean your kid won’t be able to simulate a pirate’s ship experience. Who knows maybe the help found its way to the ship again!
Ahoy Matey! Ready to get on a Pirate Ship?! Aarrr!
Let your kid board the pirate ship, climb the mini deck and swing from rope to rope as they play pretend. Not enough? Check out these pirate ship inspired toys and bring the high seas experience in your home.

What are the other activities and services offered by KinderCity
You won’t have to drag your kid anywhere else. KinderCity made a cute café for snacks and refreshments for the whole family. Their snack bar displays colourful sugar cupcakes, and milkshakes remember to drink lots of water after a sugary treat. Or skip the sugar rush for a healthy meals just head down to your preferred restaurant in the mall.
In pre-pandemic, children with their guardians had the option to play at the indoor playground for an 1hr or 3hr but the situation is just a little bit different these days. Today, children are allowed to book an hour of playtime online. Walk-ins are not encouraged! But, don’t worry! For as long as everything follows protocol the KinderCity will remain open (I hope).
