At the mall with kids? Find time to play!
As we gear up for the shopping day that is Black Friday, we can't always leave the kids at home while we try to find that one good bargain at 4 a.m. (yes, Kohl's will be opening at 4 a.m. -- you can check out the store's early-bird specials).
So just in time to make shopping a little more enjoyable for all in your crew comes a review of Tampa Bay area mall play places. Some have gone through updates (International Plaza went from an underwater theme to a baseball playland) and some are brand, spanking new (Shops at Wiregrass). But all offer a good place to relax for a few minutes and to let your little darlings run off some energy.
I guess the whole mall is Mommas play place so it's good the kids have a little play area to call their own.
