Bricks 4 Kidz in Bellevue Manila Overview
While I was browsing my IG account, I saw the page of Bellevue Manila and their post about Bellevue Kids Club featuring Bricks 4 Kidz for the whole month of March. Since my son loves to build things and he also loves LEGO, he excitedly said yes when I asked him if he wants to join the class.
Reserving a slot at the Bellevue Hotel’s website is so easy. I’m glad that the first day of this whole month activity is discounted. Instead of paying the regular amount of P750 per class, I only paid P600.
Bricks 4 Kidz provide an atmosphere for children, where they learn, build, and play. They offer
Today, March 2, Ren and I went there to let him experience what they offer. The time indicated in the brochure is 12:45pm registration and 1-3PM for the program. We arrived as early as 12PM because I did not receive a confirmation in my email if they got my payment via Paypal, so I decided to come early to check if his name is on the list.
When they confirmed that we are okay to go, we ate
Café d’Asie first while waiting for
Since there were only 5 kids enrolled, and most are as young as 5 years old, I asked one of the
The class started around
I find the task called swinging spidey (motorized) appropriate for bigger kids because there are small parts included and I noticed that young kids find it hard to follow on their own.
I hope they will consider separating the task of kids around 4-7 years old and kids 8-12 years old.
The kids finished building the swinging spidey after 30-40 minutes I think. They also played a group game, I just don’t know if the winners received a prize after because they did not announce it.
As per the ads, the fee includes kid’s snacks from Bellevue. They served it before the class starts. It includes a hotdog on a bun plus a Minute Maid juice drink. Since as I have mentioned we ate
This was Ren’s reaction after he finished the given task and made it
He thought that he will bring the toy home or any small LEGO item after the event, but unfortunately, they did not give any.
What do I think of this activity? To be honest, I find the fee quite expensive for the kind of activity they did. The 3 hours indicated in the brochure includes eating snacks, playing in the round table and just a little time for the actual lesson. If only they could do more lessons then maybe I could say that it’s worth it. I was surprised to know that they even ask for a bigger amount in other areas, and I don’t know if how many tasks they will give there and if there is an included snack too (it’s not indicated in their Facebook posts).
BUT, if you want your kid to have fun, meet new friends, stay away from gadgets for a few hours and for you to have some day off from taking care of them (even for just a few hours) then I guess enrolling them here is a nice idea. You can leave them inside the venue and just return after the class (I guess they’re safe inside because the crew of Bellevue looks after them). You and your husband can have a coffee break at the ground floor of Bellevue while waiting for the class to end.
Overall, what’s important is that my son had fun joining this class today. I might find it pricey, but when I saw the happiness of fulfillment on his face after he completed the task on his own with less supervision, I think it’s all worth it.
