giant pillow pet

Fun Things To Do in Las Vegas with Kids – Part I

Circus Circus

1. You can win one of these giant pillow pets.  It’s exactly like the ones you see on tv, just mutant-sized.  Tutu won it for us by tossing a tiny little red ring over an old fashioned coke bottleneck:

2. You can hit the jackpot (for tickets, that is).  This is what almost 3,000 tickets looks like… still going!

3.  You can watch circus acts for free every hour!  They have trapeze artists, jugglers, dancers, contortionists, these guys (kinda Cirque du Soleil-ish), clowns, and they’re all really good!

There are a ton of carnival games for kids and the grabber games are a little easier to win than at most places.  The arcade is pretty up-to-date and as you noticed, we like the jackpot games.  G is always pretty determined to hit the jackpots of the ones where you drop the quarter to the winning spot.  I forgot to take a picture as we were so involved in playing, sorry.  If nothing else, G’s engineering background is good for getting the timing down for these particular games.  They have the traditional dinky prizes but they also have a really good selection here.  We’ve gotten Sony earbuds here, before, electronics, they have game systems, etc.  Gotta love it!

I should take a picture of all the giant stuffed animals we have in our house won from Circus Circus.  Purple nose is a giant purple teddy bear that Big Mochi won by that pachinko-like game where you have to catch 5 silver balls being dropped and bouncing through these pins that throw it off-course.  I’ll be sure to take a picture next time.  She must’ve been about 4 at the time.  She wins all the jackpots.  She once tossed ONE quarter onto 1 of 6 glass plates to win a giant sized My Melody (one of Hello Kitty’s pals).  Pretty amazing, this kid.  Apparently it runs in the family!
