Santa’s Toy Factory Stop at the Parks Mall Arlington 0

On Saturday morning Charlie and I was able to attend Santa’s Toy Factory and also the “Barbie I Can Be Anything Event” for little girls. Although if truth be none after I saw the event they was hosting for the little girls I wanted to join in. As they was able to do Crafts and have there Faces painted. Plus, they was even given Pink Cupcake Pops.

So this morning I would like to share a fun fact with you. Just don’t tell anyone Charlie says as his friends might make fun of him. Although, Charlie did attend the Barbie event and he painted a picture for us to use in our home. As well as have one of the Cake Pops the sad part was he ate it so fast that I wasn’t even able to get a bite and if I had tried I think Charlie would have bitten me.

Now, before we attended the Barbie Event Charlie and went to Santa’s Toy Factory and we was able to become one of Santa’s Toy Testers as we tried out Hot Wheel Race Tracks and we played with Thomas The Train items. Which when Charlie was smaller was all he wanted to play with.

While Charlie checked out those toys I walked on ahead as I wanted to check out Barbies Dream House as I never had one as a child. Nor, could I afford one when Suzzane was little. Although, now that I have nieces I might purchase Barbies Dream House to keep here for my nieces to play with when they come to visit me.

I loved all the technology they put inside the Dream House such as a place to put your Smart Phone which will allow our children to watch movies while playing with there Barbies. Or if it is bed time they can use the rest room and really flush the toilet and turn on the lights so they can see to get into bed.

Who needs Ken when I have my very on Barbie!!

As we continued on around Santa’s Toy Workshop we was able to do a lot of interactive events including a Thomas the Train Puzzle and also pick out a car to paint. Once we was done with both items we could email the completed items to ourselves so we would have keepsakes of Santa’s Toy Workshop.

Once you walk into the exhibit make sure you grab your hat so if some of the toys end up falling you will not end up getting hit on the head and getting hurt. Because Santa doesn’t have time to take you to the Hospital as Santa and Rudolf are making there Christmas list and checking it twice.

Santa’s Toy Factory is designed to empower creativity through an interactive, immersive experience to meet Santa. Within the 1,600 square-foot space, young guests will have the opportunity to “test” new toys in Santa’s Factory before they get delivered to all the boys and girls on Christmas morning.

The grand finale, of course, will be meeting Santa himself for photos and to share their holiday wish list.

Disclosure: I’ve partnered with Bloggin’ Mamas & GGP Parks at Arlington to share these free family events with my readers, and am being compensated for this partnership. All opinions expressed are my own.

Charlie and I are hopping we can also attend Thomas and His Super Station and also the Hot Wheels Ultimate Garage event and we are praying we can take my nephew with us as he would love attending both events. Once there I could even get Jason and Charlies pictures with Santa. Which I never have had the opportunity to do.

Thank you,

Glenda, Charlie and David Cates
