Those Fast Food Tube Play Area Things

I took my son to a McDonald’s with a Playland in it for the first time the other day. It’s not that I’m a snob who doesn’t eat fast food ever. We just don’t have many Fast Food places with play areas in my area. Also, it’s been raining non-stop for the past month. I was running out of ideas for things to do inside.

Anyway, he really seemed to enjoy it, but there were THINGS on the inside that he kept picking up, and I couldn’t fit in there to see what it was. I’m assuming the things were cleanly, and I’m assuming he didn’t put them in my mouth, but ugh! If I could’ve gone in to inspect the possibly disgusting thing he was picking up, I would’ve been a lot happier. Or maybe I need a better glasses prescription, I don’t know.

  1. Restuarants should not have a play area for children at all. Parents can take their children to a park, after they eat all their food and of course if the parent thinks the child is deserving. These play areas are nearly impossible to maintain and keep clean on a daily basis and parents need to quit whining about this and keep their chidren away accordingly. In addition these restuarants that continue to use these play areas to coax children with their paying adults in should be ashamed. Many of these restuarants in my area have begun taking these play areas down.

  2. My 15 year old daughter played at indoor play areas when she was little and now she is gay and has ADD. Conincidental? I think not!

  3. We were in the play area in our local mall and a little boy, obviously not potty trained but not in diapers either, was climbing on one of the toys. As we watched, he peed all over it and his mother picked him up and walked out. It was the last time we ever visited an indoor play area.
