A friend of ours invited us to a school holiday ‘kids bingo’ organised by the popular German restaurant Brotzeit. I was rather intrigued and thought why not, it’ll actually be mine and Mr C’s first bingo experience. And oh boy we had a blast! For $15, it included a game of bingo, where there were prizes to be won, a kids meal and drink. For the kid’s meal, you get a choice of Chicken finger and fries, Fish finger and fries, Pork sausage, bacon and fries, Cheese spätzle (German pasta). Every kid got to take home a Playmobil figurine at the end of the game. The game is suitable for kids ages 5-14, but I did have a great time too.
We got there early and was promptly seated where we got presented with our meal voucher (to redeem after the game), a game sheet as well as a texta. We got served water for the table as well. During the game, you could order drinks at any time. 11.30am rolled on and Declan, dressed in his Lederhosen arrived and got the game rolling. He explained the rules to the game as well as all the famous bingo lingo such as legs 11, 55 gimme a hi-5 etc. He also got the kids to do different sounds (the fart sound was a hit) and actions whenever a certain number came up. It certainly got the crowd excited. Throughout the game, there were trivia quizzes and the kid that got the right answer gets to spin the number ball cage and also call out the number. In the middle of the game, there was also a German slap dance-off to win some spot prizes. It was certainly a very interactive bingo game. The game goes on for approximately an hour.
The game is especially good for younger kids (kindy/pre-primary) to develop their numbers, observational and not forgetting listening skills. Parents are required to stay with their child, just to help them out. I had a great time and I must admit Iwas at the edge of my seat when Mr C had only one number to go!
After the game, we promptly ordered the kids meal as they were famished! All that excitement sure have worked up an appetite. Mr C and his friend both chose the fish finger and it was declared ‘delicious!’ There were also colouring in for the kids but the boys were too busy playing with their new Playmobil figurine to do any colouring. All in all it was a fun day out and the boys really had a great time.
Grab some friends, have some fun and join in the next kids bingo! It is held at all 3 Brotzeit location in WA, so look out for when the next one is on. There is still a couple more dates being held at the Baldivis and Joondalup outlet.
