Congratulations to KFDC reader, Emily Greif, who won yesterday’s giveaway of $25 worth of admission to Boogie Babes!
And now it’s time for another chance to win a fabulous prize. This one comes courtesy of Labyrinth Games & Puzzles, the Capitol Hill shop that — as its name implies — specializes in hands-on, tangible amusement for all ages. I first posted (and raved) about the store shortly after its opening a few months ago, and it has gotten even better since. The selection of children’s games and puzzles is particularly impressive, including many quality brands and a range of both fun and educational items. It’s definitely not the usual stock that you find in large retail outlets, where many of us likely purchase kids’ toys. When I visited Labyrinth last week, one item in particular stood out as a must-buy for the kids’ next special occasion: The HABA U.S. Capitol Building Blocks Set, a perfect “DC” gift for any young building enthusiast.
But as I mentioned in that first post, it’s not just the quality selection that makes the store so terrific, it’s also the welcoming atmosphere. The staff is friendly and helpful, and even better, customers are invited to hang out and play. A variety of games are available to try out in the demo library at the back of the store. And you don’t necessarily have to be there to shop — guests can stop in just to play. That said, it’s not the kind of place where young children can run around unsupervised. But it’s a perfect indoor play option for kids who can sit and enjoy a board game or puzzle.
And that leads to the giveaway, since this one is perfect for just that kid: A game-themed birthday party at Labyrinth. The event could be a child’s party (ages 6 and up; maximum of 10 children) or an adult party (maximum 20 people) during regular store hours. The package worth $150 includes rental of Labyrinth’s private party space; staff assistance in leading games, setting up and cleaning up; an area for food and drinks (which you provide); and tables set up for games, crafts, and eating. It’s a pretty sweet prize, if you ask me.
