Peddler’s Village Event and Giggleberry Fair Giveaway!

 peddlersContest Closed -Congrats to Sheila Comment #20
A few weeks back I let you all know about the free event for Mommy Bloggers that Mama’s Little Helper had organized.  Today was the big day, and we arrived at Peddler’s Village bright and early and ready for a good time.  I hadn’t been to Peddler’s Village in about a decade and I did not remember it being as large as it is.  For those of you that aren’t familiar, Peddler’s Village is a shopping destination for the entire family, with great boutiques, restaurants and pubs, and fun activities for children—all in a quaint old-world village setting.

We all gathered at Giggleberry Fair to enjoy some play time.  Once we stepped inside, Emma’s face lit up.  There were carousels, balls and rides galore at first glance, and she knew she was in for a special treat today. One of the main attractions, Giggleberry Mountain, is a huge indoor obstacle course with balls flying all over.  This was perfect for the older kids, but not for my 20-month-old.  She wanted out just as soon as we stepped inside.  Not to worry, there were plenty of other things for her.  Like the Grand Carousel (right).  This was the longest-lasting carousel ride I’ve ever encountered.  Emma loved it.  And the mini carousel ride (left) was pretty great too.

We spent a lot of time in the Giggles Discovers play area for the young lads.  The water table was one of the highlights, along with the slide and firetruck.  019

Then we went back out to the main area and looked into the fun mirrors while waiting for another carousel ride.  Emma kept touching her head as if to say, “How can this be?”.  She looks like one of the coneheads here. It was too funny—I was laughing out loud like a crazy person.

Once all of the mommy bloggers and their kids worked up an appetite, we took a stroll through along the brick path through the village while looking at all of the beautiful shops and taking in the scenery.  It is so beautiful here.  It’s even more so in the wintertime with all of the Christmas decorations and lights.  But we were in for something even better, Sweet Lorraine’s.  They had a delicous spread laid out for us including sandwiches, salads and made to order pasta.  The macaroni and cheese was heavenly.  Sweet Lorraine’s has free kids meals and face painting on Monday evenings.  We will definitely be back there when we return to Peddler’s Village.

This was such fun, and we can’t wait to visit again!036

  2. We went to the Scarecrow Contest and Display last yr with our daughter and that was a lot of fun. We are really looking forward to the Gingerbread Display this year and would LOVE to go to Giggleberry Fair sometime soon. Last yr we went in the doors just to let her ride the carousel and I was amazed how much stuff there was to do in there,worth the trip just for that. Watching my toddler on the carousel hopefully made great memoried for her,it definitely did for me.

  26. Hiya! :) You know, I have been to Peddler's Village on and off over the years, and I don't think I have ever gone to the Giggleberry Fair area. LOL But I'll tell you, I love getting fudge at Skip's, and love the Village Toy and Doll Shoppe, The Soap Opera & The Fun Place, because those are the places that I find my rubber duckies! :) (especially the Village one, and yes, I'm in my 30s LOL) :)

  47. I love Peddler's Village! My daughter lives about 35 minutes away from there, and since I live 21/2 hours from her, I like to make Peddler's Village a destination to go with her and my 2 little granddaughters when I visit them. My favorite attraction is the Carousel! It's the most beautiful one I've ever seen, and the girls love to ride on the bench seat with me! What an honor for a grandmother! The shops and restaurants are wonderful too.
