I have heard a lot of great things about Kid’s City here in Canberra. For those who don’t know, it is basically a giant indoor playground. There are a couple of such places around, but this one is apparently the biggest.
There are heaps of things to do in Kid’s City, both for toddlers and bigger kids. For the under 2s, there’s some walkers, a plastic tunnel, a ball pit and some climbing tubes. For the bigger kids, there are giant slides that I really wanted to go on (but didn’t as the place was packed). As well as the more advanced climbing tubes. There are cubby houses too for kids of all ages to enjoy.
We finally went to check out the place last weekend and Little E had the fun of his life yet! We were lucky to be allowed in for free (it is normally $9.50pp), though I would have been happy to pay 🙂 We were there for around 1.5 hours and the whole entire time, Little E was zombie-walking and crawling everywhere, being the busybody that he is. He loved the big ball pit the most, with the cubby house coming second.
While we were there, there were three separate groups having a birthday party. I noticed that the adults of the parties were able to socialise, while their kids run around by themselves having fun. I think it is such a great idea and would probably do it for future birthdays.
There’s a small café offering drinks, ice cream and other small snacks. Comfy sofas were also available for parents to perch themselves on. We didn’t get to try out any, as we were too busy keeping an eye on Little E. However, I will certainly try something next time I go 🙂
Other than the fact that Little E loved the place, I fully appreciate how clean it is! The whole area was spotless, and the toilets (at least the female ones) are clean and not smelly at all. The ride-on car Little E played in was a little sticky, however, I found everything else clean. I will most certainly take my precious back there again 🙂
