Kids’ spas can help compensate for the downsides of growing up, such as extra homework and the slow, unstoppable discontinuation of the Pop-Tart flavors they once loved. Help them forget mint chocolate chip with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
$25 for a 60-minute bubblegum spa day (a $60 value)
$99 for a 60-minute party for up to 10 girls (up to a $239.50 value)
- Up to 10 candy polish-only manis (a $20 value each)
- Up to 10 bottles of make-your-own keepsake lotion (a $3.95 value each)
Kids aged 2–15 not only get a fun spa experience but also a tasty snack when they don a bubblegum-flavored candy mask that tastes as good as it feels. Kids can lick or even eat the candy mask during the bubblegum spa day, which also treats fingers and toes to soaps, lotions, and nail polishes that look and smell like bubblegum. Alternatively, the candy polish-only mani party allows girls to explore candy-colored nail polish with glitter and designs for their fingertips, then make their own candy-scented lotion to take home. All of the spa's nail services are for decoration and entertainment only and do not involve any nail trimming.
Candy Kids Spa
Candy Kids Spa combines things that kids love—including more than 100 types of candy, candy-flavored facial masks, a heaping helping of personalized attention, and fun activities such as karaoke—into one memorable experience. It should come as no surprise that the company's formula is a successful one, since it was, in fact, inspired by a 6-year-old. As she told Elizabeth Carey in a 2010 Buffalo Business First feature, owner Ayanna Williams came up with the concept when her daughter requested her own special treatment after seeing the pampering going on at a traditional spa.
Williams and her daughter decided to retrieve some frosting out of the cabinet and had a good time creating their very own tasty "facial." Williams's daughter told her friends at school about it, and soon Williams started traveling to people's homes for mobile parties. She then bought a storefront on Niagara Falls Boulevard, gutting the building herself and painting the walls in bright rainbow colors. Williams eventually expanded the business to include two more locations in New York state and is in the process of creating franchises elsewhere.
The innovative spa, which has been featured on WKBW Channel 7 News, offers services ranging from candy-colored mani-pedis to a spa factory where kids can make their own lip gloss and candy-scented perfume. They also host parties to celebrate a birthday or a long-awaited truce in a war over which sister gets to sleep on the top bunk.
