Having spent the weekend with the family in Liverpool and finding this absolute gem, I knew I had to see if we could get Mattel Play on board with MMB Magazine!

They have over 13,000 square feet of immaculate interactive adventure play to enjoy, all with time slots so its never over crowded and you don’t end up with a frustrated toddler meltdown (well maybe when you try to make them leave!!). The quality of the play equipment is amazing it really feels like your own mini theme park. And being right on the Albert Dock a great location right by the train station and Liverpool has so much to offer for toddlers, including all the free museums!

Completely undercover, fully air conditioned family entertainment centre. It is difficult to describe as it’s between a high-end soft play centre and a theme park! It’s to date one of the best venues I have taken Kimi to.

With three completely unique zones to enjoy based on the popular TV series that kids know and love – Thomas & Friends™, Bob the Builder™ and Fireman Sam™.

This was Kimi’s favourite floor, from riding a jet ski, to putting out the silk flames with the blue silk air propelled water jets, or climbing into the firetruck. But not forgetting to stop off and work in the shop (Still with fireman’s hat on, well you never know when Sam will need you!) He even took a twirl on the fireman’s pole (So did his grandad but I am not sure he got back up as quick!).

  • Slide down the fire station pole.
  • Climb aboard Titan at the Ocean Rescue Centre.
  • Drive Jupiter!
  • Be a real shopkeeper in Dilys’ grocery store.
