LA Auto Show and the Kids' Fun Zone

Once the kids are born, life seems to change sometimes in a subtle way and sometimes it is less subtle.  For us, we found non-kid centered activities seemed to be less interesting to us or maybe that it was just that much harder to make the effort to drag the kids once they were toddlers.  We work to find ways to integrate activities we love with things the kids will love or at least be entertained by. (Yes... we drug the kids to the Star Wars Convention held in LA a few years ago but they honestly are Star Wars fans too...)

I was thrilled to be invited last weekend to a special Mom Blogger event at the LA Auto Show to preview the first ever Kids' Fun Zone.  I knew it was a recipe for success, because what most kids need after a few hours of a more adult activity is a way to get their energy out and the Kids' Fun Zone provides exactly that - a break for the kids!  There are several bounce houses/bounce courses, face painting, bubble making areas, arts and crafts games and more.  What I loved is that the Kids' Fun Zone really caters to all ages of children because there are a handful of XBox driving simulators for the older kids and a kids' Jeep driving course for the racer car drivers in training!  It provides a great place for families to "decompress" after a long day of walking. 

It was tough getting my boys to leave and go check out some of the car exhibits!  For those with kids still in strollers - the LA Auto Show is completely jogger/stroller friendly! 

The Kids' Fun Zone is open December 12 & 13 from 9:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m. (located in Kentia Hall) and is free with admission to the LA Auto Show.

The kids also loved being able to sit in the drivers seat of a real Jeep...

I was excited to show my husband and the boys the Chevy Volt & Chevy Cruze that I had previewed a few nights before. (Read that post here)

Be sure to head to the LA Auto Show before it ends to get a peek at the amazing concept cars coming up in the next few years!  The "P-Nut" was a fun one...

Admission to the LA Auto Show is $12 for adults and free for children under 12 (w/adult)
Discount Coupons are available through participating LA area new car dealerships and through e-tickets purchased at LA Auto Show.

*We were provided admission to the LA Auto Show to facilitate the review of the Kids' Fun Zone and the LA Auto Show, but it in no way affected my opinion reflected in the post.
