Boy, are birthdays a blast! But blow-up jumpy things in the back yard don't come with pizza, tokens and arcade games! Thank goodness kids and parents can agree on one thing: Chuck E. Cheese's, please--where a kid can be a kid! Kids are treated like gods and goddesses by a giant rat and friends. Whatever keeps the tears away, eh? Smiles are aplenty, as this is the place to celebrate that wonderful day of the year.
