New indoor playground for kids opens in Aylmer Mall
Fun Factor, a new indoor play space for children, opened its doors last week in the Galeries Aylmer. The indoor playground includes a 20'x30' play structure, various activities and interactive games for children between the ages of 3 to 11 years old. Fun Factor is designed for kids to burn energy, use their minds and entertain themselves. Children can climb through the maze of tubes and slides or play with fun and educational toys such as lego, Thomas the Train, play kitchen as well as other fun activities.
The owners, Bobby MacDonald and his wife Jen Putnam, are longtime Aylmer residents and own Full of Beans Party Rental which is now operating out of the same location after being a mobile business for many years.
Full of Beans offers balloons for a variety of occasions such as birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, and holidays. Additionally, they offer balloon displays such as archways, garlands, and other balloon installations.
Fun Factor took over the previous kids amusement center in the mall and added improvements such as more activities and games. MacDonald tells the Bulletin and Pontiac Journal they are hoping to add a toddler area as well as more educational interactive electronic games. Currently children must have an adult with them in the playground. Future plans include a drop off and after school program.
Fun Factor is also available for birthday parties. There are two party rooms that can be rented for kids to host celebrations with all the activities and games available for them to use. (SD)
