Wacky Warehouse Review
We went to our local Wacky Warehouse as it’s just up the road and also gave me a chance to practice my driving.
The soft play centre is attached to a pub – even better as it meant we could have a quick lunch afterwards.
I’ve wanted to take Miss M to a soft play centre for so long but worried that she might be too small. Most of my friends kids who go are 3 years’ old + but I asked around and was told that at 22 months, she’d love it – so off we went!
On the way in I don’t know who was more excited, me, Mr M or Miss M – I think perhaps it was Daddy though. :)
It cost us £3.75 which I suppose isn’t too bad bearing in mind the fun the kids seemed to be having inside.
Miss M was completely over-awed for the first 5 minutes. We took off our shoes and went inside and once she saw the slide, excitement took over and she did go a little hyperactive – so sweet! Although she’s been on slides before, she thought it a better challenge to try and run UP it instead of slide down.
I played with her for the first half of the session until I realised that at 6 month’s pregnant, I was a little restricted as to which bits I could take her on – I didn’t quite fancy getting stuck in a tunnel or up a ladder!Mr M had waited patiently but took over and the two of them had a whale of a time – jumping in the ball pool, climbing up and sliding down slides, running through tunnels – so much fun!
Our biggest challenge was, of course, trying to get her to leave when it was time to go. She did NOT want to put her shoes on and go – until the promise of lunch swayed her a little bit more. I think when we go again, we’ll have to plan it this way. That said though, she can’t be the first child to protest at leaving!
Do you take your little ones to soft play? We absolutely loved it and can’t wait to go again. For rainy days especially (lots of those in England) it will be an ideal local place to head to.
