Tot Hot Spot, Giggles N' Hugs, Introduces First Child Drop-Off Service in Any Los Angeles Mall

Supervised Play for Kids Means Free Time for Parents

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - May 18, 2011) - Giggles N' Hugs, the unique children's playspace and restaurant in the Century City Mall, is now offering parents the convenience of a child drop off service -- the first in any Los Angeles mall. Whether mom and dad need a few hours to dine, shop or just relax, CPR and First Aid certified Giggles N' Hugs team members are available seven days a week to watch kids while they eat, play and have fun in a safe environment. The drop off program, designed for children three years of age and older, allows kids to enjoy free play, homework and craft time, live entertainment and dinner. One Giggles N' Hugs certified team member will supervise a maximum of four children at one time. Reservations are recommended as space is limited.

"We are extremely excited to be the first kid-friendly restaurant and play area in a Los Angeles mall to offer a drop off service to parents and their children," says Joey Parsi, Founder and Owner of Giggles N' Hugs. "As parents ourselves, my wife and I understand the want and need to have alone time while knowing that your child is in a happy and safe environment."

The ultimate hangout for tinseltown's tots, Giggles N' Hugs offers pint-size diners wholesome, delicious menu options as well as an enchanted playspace that includes a striking sunken pirate ship, a majestic princess castle and a ferocious sea dragon. Featuring a menu that includes everything from edamame to pasta, Giggles N' Hugs provides tasty meals that are expertly fashioned in their creative kitchen to "disguise" veggies and other nutritious ingredients, such as flaxseed. Some of the tummy delights include pizza, featuring mom's tricky treat sauce, and little bites like sliced apples with peanut butter.

Drop off hours are Sunday-Thursday, 4-7pm ($60 for three hours) and Friday-Saturday, 5-9pm ($75 for four hours). A one time registration fee of $35 is required and includes a Giggles N' Hugs t-shirt that must be worn each time the child returns for supervised play. Reservations are recommended and can be made by calling 310.553.HUGS (4847).
