‘Honey Boo Boo’ enjoys games and signs autographs at arcade

A dollar might make Alana "Honey Boo Boo Child" Thompson holler, but so does a strip of prize tickets. The 7-year-old pageant queen-turned-reality-star hit up her local Fun Zone in Milledgeville, Georgia, on Friday for some family fun, and by the looks of it, she's really good at Skee-Ball. After playing the game with her 32-year-old mother June Shannon, Honey Boo Boo exchanged all the tickets she won at the prize counter — and she looked pretty pleased with what she picked out.

But it wasn't all fun and games. Before she was able to play, the little reality star signed autographs (and headshots) for her many fans. And after The Fun Zone escapade, Honey Boo Boo and her mother rushed back home to quickly get ready before heading off to a TLC press junket.

Although it might seem like a lot for such a little girl, June insists not only is her family — which includes boyfriend Mike "Sugar Bear" Thompson, daughters Anna "Chickadee," 17, Jessica "Chubbs," 15, and Lauryn "Pumpkin," 12, and newborn granddaughter, Kaitlyn — earning big bucks (June laughed at a $4,000-an-episode report), but they're also making plenty of memories.
