WOWZUH Brings Entertainment For Kids to Albuquerque

By S. Mathur

The name says it all. WOWZUH is a fun place for kids to play and learn, while parents can join in or take a little time out. Owner Stephanie Garcia says that "We offer a calm and relaxed atmosphere where kids can explore and play. The parents stay with the kids and can either play along side them or sit back and let their kids do their own thing."

There's plenty for the grown ups to do in Albuquerque, with art, museums, history, jewelry, crafts and heritage to explore. WOWZUH brings this spirit to entertainment for kids, says Garcia: "We are a small family owned business that is trying to bring something fun for kids to do in Albuquerque. Whether it be crafts, science experiments, family game night or fun events, we just want to provide a fun and safe place for families to enjoy together."

The play area and party center is equipped with an X-box kinect and a wall projector, an interactive floor projector, a bubble machine and games and toys for kids of all ages. Parents choose WOWZUH as a party space because it has a calm and safe atmosphere that they can trust. Everyone stays together in one space, so there's someone keeping an eye on all the kids at the same time. Staff help with set up and cleanup, making parties as enjoyable for parents as they are for kids, no small achievement.

Parents describe WOWZUH as the ultimate toddler's playroom, with all the toys you'd buy for your kids if you had the money and the space. There are bubbles, balloons, laser shows for kids and plenty of musical instruments. The large, open area makes it a suitable space for toddlers, giving them plenty of room to roam and run without getting into trouble as they might at home.

Kids love the place because they find new toys each time, since different toys are rotated. Parties are fun for everyone, including the shy kids. Another parent recalls that at the party she attended with her six-year-old niece, none of the kids were sitting in corners or by themselves. Even the shyer kids were running around and sharing their toys with the others.

Special events through the year, like Halloween parties and Christmas shopping for procrastinators create interest for parents as well as kids. WOWZUH connects to the local community by donating the proceeds from silent auctions to non-profits. Garcia says that they also "make cards and bags of candy for veterans. We have a clothing swap coming up and also an event called Glove of Love, where we fill gloves with necessities to hand out to the homeless."
