A Goldi-Good Time at the Goldilocks Junior Club Fun Day

Seeing children play Tumbang Preso, Sipa, Piko, Pabitin,  and sack race, on a sunny Saturday afternoon shouldn’t come as as a surprise–that is if this was still the 80s and during a fiesta instead of them playing inside a mall.

I guess it was a nostalgic sight for the parents (and even grandparents) to see children playing these games instead of them looking zoned out and focused on their smartphones and gadgets.goldilocks junior club fun day (11) goldilocks junior club fun day (3)

It was one of the reasons why Goldilocks bakeshop decided to bring back these traditional Filipino games at the recently concluded Goldilocks Junior Club Fun Day held at the SM Mall of Asia Arena Music Hall.
Early in the day, registered Goldilocks Junior Club members received a free shirt, meals, and other freebies when they arrived. The festivities prompted curious onlookers to sign up for a membership and avail of its numerous perks. Event host and sports broadasting personality Chiqui Reyes was on hand to make sure that the program went smoothly, providing fun and excitement for everyone.goldilocks junior club fun day (15) goldilocks junior club fun day (9) goldilocks junior club fun day (19)

A notable theme throughout the entire day was the emphasis on classic Filipino childhood games. Indeed, particpants and members of the audience were able to reconnect with their Filipino heritage through games like sipa, tumbang preso, and piko, which brought back fond memories of playing outside on the street with friends.goldilocks junior club fun day (7) goldilocks junior club fun day (13)

“Goldilocks bakeshop has been indelibly associated with fun, delight, celebrations, and of course, Pinoy culture, so we thought of  bringing these well beloved games and introducing them to a new generation, mused Goldilocks Marketing Director Cherry Caluya.”

“At a time when most kids’ idea of fun is to be isolated in a virtual world of screens and games, Goldilocks wanted to let them experience the joy of group interaction and physical play,” Caluya added “These larong Pinoy form a delightful part of our Filipino customs, and today’s children will greatly benefit from learning them,” she added.

In addition to the classic Pinoy games, attendees were entertained by the Bearkada Bears, who had a dance number and a photo session with the crowd. Members were also able to participate in a DYC (Decorate Your Cake) session, and join in on a traditional pabitin game with cool prizes and goodies.

The country’s number one bakeshop made sure that the Goldilocks Junior Club Fun Day was a day to remember for everyone.
