FREE Stuff Just For Kids!
There’s an abundance of great places in Victoria that offer freebies for your kids, from free kids meals at restaurants to free kids birthday freebies (more birthday FREE stuff at my FREE in Victoria BC page http://www.victoriabirthday.com). I’ve scoured the net, received them from readers, dropped in on store owners, and here’s the current list with the last “verified” date for each one – with your help, I’ll be adding new ones as I find them.
Please let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org if you find a new one, or an existing one needs to be updated or removed.
