Shopping in Doha with restless kids in tow can be slow and stressful. Even the most behaved child can get frustrated and bored if they must follow their parents around shopping. Fortunately, Caboodle at Doha Festival City Mall can help by providing supervised playtime for your little ones while you enjoy shopping and some child-free time.
Caboodle’s Drop N Shop program comprises two elements, namely play and pamper.
The play area boasts soft play for toddlers and a jungle gym for babies. It also has a dress-up corner for several costumes, an arts and crafts room, and an imagination zone with role-play toys.
The staff organizes activities and games for the children to play together. They can also hold weekly classes and events for kids, like educational camps that include fitness classes, storytelling sessions, and talent shows.
All staff are well-trained in child safety and care, including providing first aid to kids. A keen staff member will be assigned to your child who will stay for them for the duration of their stay – and your kid won’t be allowed to leave the play area until you sign them out.
Caboodle has a salon for kids where your little ones can have their hair cut and styled, or try different types of manicures and pedicures.
The salon staff are well-trained hairdressers who use organic hair care and styling products that you can even buy if your child loves them.
Moreover, Caboodle has a café where your kids can grab a bite to eat. You can preselect a snack for them or let them choose what they want from the café menu.
