Bret took leave on Friday and our plan was to bring Leia to indoor playground. I suggested The City, an interactive learning playground.
Source from The City:
“Within The City, young children can try out different adult roles and professions in a fun, safe environment. Creativity and imagination are promoted to positively enhance growth and development. Children can transform themselves into Cooks, Cashiers, Doctors, Nurses or Policemen, dressed in the respective uniforms and outfits. They can drive on mini streets, navigate traffic signs and lights, and explore small-scale real-life locations; such as the supermarket, café, beauty salon, medical clinic and much more! We create locations for realistic situations where children learn and have fun.”
Leia likes the Cafe Station but she wasn’t enthusiastic about wearing the chef uniform.
At the Post Office, I got her to doodle on a “post card”.
Next, dropped the post card into the mail box.
At the Classrooms, she found familiar toys. Leia went, “Mummy, I played this at Mindchamps!”
The Supermarket looks fun and will be nice if her friends were around.
Leia wasn’t comfortable dressing into the costumes and there wasn’t much to do so we left early. Bret felt it is a boring place as he was expecting slides and toys. For me, I think it is good place for playdates.
