Photo Hunt :: Hanging

Come and join the hunt here

This popular party game is called "Pabitin" (bitin means hang). Different kinds of party favors (candies, small toys, stickers, etc.) are placed on a bamboo grid. The loot are all hanging loosely. Normally the middle of the bamboo grid is secured with a rope and tied to something sturdy to keep it elevated. The "Pabitin" is constantly lowered and raised to add to the fun.

The pictures below were taken a few years ago when my son celebrated his 2nd Birthday at Jollibee (popular counterpart of McDonald's in the Philippines). Hubby and I made sure all the kids had a fair chance during the "Pabitin" so we provided two separate "Pabitin" games and divided the kids based on age (younger kids grouped together and older ones placed in another group).

Yohan being the birthday celebrant had the privilege of choosing anything from the "Pabitin" before the game started. My hubby helped Yohan reach the toy he wanted.

When the host gave the signal for the start of the game, Jollibee (the mascot) brought down the "Pabitin" slowly and the kids started grabbing the hanging party favors.
