Beauty brands from your childhood
Tickles & Giggles, is Dubai’s glamorous answer to children’s entertainment. The popular children’s spa offers manicures, pedicures, facials and hair styling tips for young kids.

But does this search for novelty mean children are growing up too fast? The children at this spa are offered several choices of different products to accompany their treatments. Does this mean that kids will grow up associating specific brands with their fondest childhood memories, and if so will they be more likely to grow up as loyal users?
