What are you waiting for? Melbourne's calling...
It may be cold outside but baby, it's as warm as toast inside one (or all) of these Melbourne Play Centres!
It's the happy medium that makes everyone happy — a play area for kiddies and coffee for the Grown-ups. With cabin fever setting in over the Autumn/Winter months, bundle up the kids and take field trips to a few indoor play spaces. With drop-in play areas, it's great to be able to hang out for a few bucks admission without having to commit to expensive memberships or classes. They'll love exploring the new toys, and you'll love not having to clean up the mess.
Just when you thought Chadstone couldn't get any better they go and make shopping with a toddler/kinder kid much more bearable with the addition of four Play Pods. The play pods are modern play areas to entertain your little one when you need to take a breather from shopping! You'll find them scattered on lower ground level from DAISO right through to ToysRUs and each play pod is complete with seating. The only downside is they'll all unfenced. On the upside, the Shingle Inn cafe is smack bang in the middle so it's a no brainer where to get your cuppa and bite to eat!
