GoClimb Coburg - Melbourne - Review

Contributor Renata and her daughter Anastasia and her friend Maxim headed to GoClimb in Coburg recently for Busy City Kids and were happy to share their experience with us.

They were hosted by lovely Luana on the day and headed to try out the NinjaX obstacle course first. NinjaX will release your child’s inner Ninja on the adrenaline pumping obstacle course with stand-alone challenges and a whole circuit and the great thing about it is that the degree of difficulty can change as you go.

The NinjaX obstacle course which runs for an hour is suitable for kids over 130 cm or 5 to 6 years old. The course tested Anastasia and Maxim’s agility, strength and coordination which they really loved.

Harbord Diggers - Harbord - Sydney - Review

Weeroona Reserve - Fairlight - Sydney - Review

We recently visited the recently updated Weeroona Reserve in Fairlight and the kids and I were pleasantly surprised by this playground. A very simple setup but very effective to keep the little ones entertained. Being next to the Manly Cemetery might not appeal to some but the kids have loved playing here for the last few weeks.

 Photo credit: @busycitykids

Photo credit: @busycitykids

The Weeroona Reserve consists of two playgrounds. The fenced playground for younger children has two sets of slides - a single and double slide. Little Mister loves the single slide as it goes really fast. The double slide is great too with some nice shade. The playground also has a wooden structure where kids can step on stomps. The playground also has ample seating.

 Photo credit: @busycitykids

Photo credit: @busycitykids

 Photo credit: @busycitykids

Photo credit: @busycitykids

The second playground is not fenced but shaded is for older kids to climb and explore with a flying fox and two sets of swings for younger and older kids. There is a small scooter track around the playground which was little bumps and curves (careful the magpies during magpie season). There is also a grass area near the second playground.

 Photo credit: @busycitykids

Photo credit: @busycitykids

We really like this playground, very simple but effective and lots of fun. Please note there is no toilet onsite and it is close to two streets which kids can access.

This playground is located between Harland St and Jamieson St in Fairlight next to the Manly Cemetery.

Walter Gors Park - Dee Why - Sydney - Review

The Walter Gors Park in Dee Why is a popular spot for local families with a great playground, water play spots and plenty of room for the kids to run around on the grass or have a picnic and relax. Revamped in 2017, it is a great looking playground which little Mister was more than happy to explore!

 Photo credit: @busycitykids

Photo credit: @busycitykids

The playground’s large and smaller cubbies are great for little ones to climb around, slide down the slides and explore.

 Photo credit: @busycitykids

 Photo credit: @busycitykids

Photo credit: @busycitykids

There are plenty of sitting spots for families to sit down and relax as well as two ping pong tables, a public toilets right next to the playground for convenience and a cool water play spot. We didn’t expect to find the water turned on that day so little Mister was soaked but had lots of fun meeting new friends. Note to self: pack spare clothes next time ha!

 Photo credit: @busycitykids

Photo credit: @busycitykids

 Photo credit: @busycitykids

There are also some great swings and a merry-go-round for kids to use as well as little nature wonder spots.

 Photo credit: @busycitykids

Photo credit: @busycitykids

 Photo credit: @busycitykids

Photo credit: @busycitykids

The Walter Gors Park is a great spot for the family to explore and have fun and perfect for the warmer months with the water play spots. There is no shade over the playground or the swings and the water play is partly shaded so please keep that in mind for warm days with the slides and also sun protection. Although the playground is set back from the road, please be careful with your little one, I have a good tester with me as he is always wondering off!

There are local shops next door if you fancy a quick bite to eat or spot of groceries.

Jurassic Creatures - St Kilda Triangle - Melbourne - Review

The dinosaurs have landed in Melbourne and Kate and her dino lovers checked out Jurassic Creatures at St Kilda on Monday and had a fantastic time checking out 30 dinosaurs onsite (some move, some don’t) but they are equally as impressive as each other! They also loved all the dino related activities offered during the event too. A great option for the school holidays. Checkout Kate’s review below and great pics as always. To follow Kate’s little ones adventures, head to their Insta @kateflatman. Thanks Kate x Catherine

Thanks to Andy Day and his fun-filled series Andy’s Prehistoric Adventures + Andy’s Dinosaur Adventures (not to mention a visit to the Natural History Museum while on holidays recently in London) the poppets are absolutely dinosaur obsessed.  So I knew a visit to the hugely popular Jurassic Creatures exhibition was going to be well received - and I was right!

Photo credit: @kateflatman for @busycitykids

Jurassic Creatures, is an interactive walk through event that will captivate young and old alike.  The main attraction, the exhibition, allows you to explore a prehistoric world featuring over 30 life-size moving dinosaurs. Children will have fun identifying and posing for photographs with their favourite dinosaurs - or shrieking and running for cover when they let out a loud roar and move in their direction!

Apart from the amazing animatronics show, little ones will love becoming a Paleontologist - complete with an expert digger uniform of white coat and protective glasses - as they chip away at their very own fossil using chisels and chipping hammers.  If you ask nicely, you might even get to unearth two!

The Nature Play Space is perfect for little ones to run, jump, forage, climb, balance and dig as they explore - just be sure to watch out for the plastic creepy crawlies (an assortment of bugs, beetles, an ant, grasshopper, butterfly and a fly) that have been added to the space for children to use their imaginations and learn about Australia's native insects.

Situated perfectly along the famous ‘Coastal Walk’, this park is a pleaser for both the kiddies and parents. Although in need of some TLC it’s still a popular haunt for Eastern Suburbs families and a great morning out.

The playground is split into three zones for kids to explore. You will find typical park necessities of swings, slides and climbing towers. But the kids will be fascinated with the musical noise makers, sandstone sundials and not to mention an extra-large (7.5 metre high) climbing net in the shape of a ship mask.

Although not a fenced space it is mostly a flat playground making it easy for parents to supervise while taking in the beautiful view of Coogee’s Wedding Cake Island.

With an abundance of natural shade from large old trees this park also has sunshade sails to protect the little ones. This spot is perfect for kids of all ages and the rubber flooring is ideal for crawlers.

Splat - 3D Drawing Tool - Busy Tech Kids - Review

Little Miss and I recently tested out Splat, a 3D Drawing Tool designed by Australian Designers Nuts n Bolts Design and sponsored by Engineers Australia. Splat in old English means to split up and it refers to the centre line of the Splat's design, that splits the product into the left and right side. You can design 4 basic shapes with the tool and design anything you like! The tool is great for STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and maths) projects at home or at school and is perfect for developing creativity and visual problem solving skills and is easy to use for all ages.

 Photo credit: @busycitykids

Photo credit: @busycitykids

After a few reads and demonstrations from the website, little Miss and I started ‘Splatting’ and made different shapes with the tool. It was fairly easy for little Miss to use the tool and make whatever shape she wanted, she was even inspired to draw a rocket from the shape of the Splat!

 Photo credit: @busycitykids

Photo credit: @busycitykids

She followed a few examples and managed to do a triangle on top of her cube. So much concentration in this photo as she tried really hard to problem solve the issue of creating a triangle.

 Photo credit: @busycitykids

Photo credit: @busycitykids

After adding a few circles on the square and her triangle, little Miss loved colouring her shape in.

 Photo credit: @busycitykids

Photo credit: @busycitykids

I on the other hand tried a few different things, I am not the most creative person however I managed to test the tool and see what different shapes I could make with it. Now to get little Mister started on Splat, he did have a go but his drawings need some work.

 Photo credit: @busycitykids

Photo credit: @busycitykids

You can access Splat 3D Drawing tutorials on their website (mentioned below). The beauty about Splat is that it’s designed and made in Australia. You can buy your Splat tool for as little as $4.99 on their website and it comes in either red or yellow.

Collaroy Beach Playground - Collaroy - Sydney - Review

The Collaroy Beach playground is a true favourite for Northern Beaches families. Its location is perfect as it is close to the beach, rock pools and cafés so head there early to secure a park.

 Photo credit: @busycitykids

Photo credit: @busycitykids

We love this playground as it covers all ages, children can hop on the shark/dolphin bouncer, go on a swing, go down several slides, venture around the playground, go on merry go round (which was being repaired on our visit), climb on the large structure, do some water play in summer and more.

 Photo credit: @busycitykids

Photo credit: @busycitykids

 Photo credit: @busycitykids

Photo credit: @busycitykids

It has bouncy floors near the slides and a little bridge that little Mister loved to walk across. The main areas are shaded except for the one close to the beach however the little grocery shop under the main blue slide is nice and shaded. We spent most of our time in that section.

 Photo credit: @busycitykids

Photo credit: @busycitykids

 Photo credit: @busycitykids

Bigger kids will love the large climbing structure which has all sorts of options and little ones will love the beach themed sculptures and little water play spot (in summer when it’s turned on).

 Photo credit: @busycitykids

We love that this popular playground is so close to the beach, rock pools and some great cafés, all thumbs up, get ready for a great day out.

Auburn Japanese Garden - Auburn - Sydney - Review

Last month, I took a trip to Auburn and visited the Auburn Japanese Garden part of the Auburn Botanic Gardens the day before the Cherry Blossom Festival. Update 14 Sep 2018: the main cherry blossoms have come to an end for this year however there will be flowering peaches and apples displaying blossoms over the next month throughout the gardens.

 Photo credit: @busycitykids

The Japanese Garden consists of a traditional rock garden, a traditional Torii gate at the entrance and another rock entrance to the lake.

The cherry blossoms did not disappoint and many visitors on the day were in love with them, I may have taken 50+ photos of them and the bees wondering through the blossoms ha!

After admiring the cherry blossoms, I made my way to the main garden where a Guzei traditional red Japanese bridge stands but was stopped in my tracks by a beautiful peacock wondering the gardens with a couple of others.

The main feature of the garden is the center lake. As there are no fencing around the lake, extra care is to be taken when taking children. I went solo that day but can imagine my youngest son was trying hard to give me heart attacks but I saw many children there that day, families enjoying the garden together and walking on steps on the water.

 Photo credit: @busycitykids

Photo credit: @busycitykids

 Photo credit: @busycitykids

It is not a very large garden but nonetheless a well designed and maintained garden that families and friends can enjoy. I did find myself sitting by the water and taking in the relaxing atmosphere.

The new Foley Reserve replacement certainly ticks many boxes for residents. It looks superb, has a helicopter, a tram, slides, swings, a basket swing, a bike/scooter track with traffic signs and lots of picnic and seating spots.

We love the little tram and kids will love it too and they will love the new structure with slide for older kids, monkey bars, track ride, fireman's pole, rope climbs with a ‘Foley Café’ shop front with all ability access. There's also a new basket swing for all ability and a relocated kangaroo rocker as well as new planting and timber logs to encourage nature play.

Stomping Ground - Brookvale - Sydney - Review

A few weekends ago, little Miss was invited to a friend's birthday party at Stomping Ground in Brookvale. This indoor play centre is great for little ones under 5 during the week and kids between 6 and 12 years old on weekends for birthday parties and school holidays.

Kids can burnout some energy celebrating their friend's birthday party by playing upstairs on the interactive magic floor, Foosball and Air Hockey tables while they wait for their party to start and head downstairs with supervisors and jump, climb and compete in the inflatables and finish off with a virtual reality session, have a snack and celebrate with the birthday cake.

Little Miss loved going through the inflatable obstacles and going down the large slides, climbing the inflatable mountain, competing warrior style and knocking friends over in gladiator knock out and more and loved doing virtual reality too.

Balmoral Beach and Playground - Balmoral - Sydney - Review

The Balmoral Beach is located on the Esplanade in Balmoral on the Lower North Shore. This popular spot includes Balmoral and Edwards Beaches and Pools. These two beaches are separated by a bridge which leads to the small island of Rocky Point. 

Balmoral Beach is a very busy spot in summer where families and young children enjoy this calm beach. There is a children's rock pool closest to Edwards Beach, with the shark proof pool close to Rocky Point and the long strip of Balmoral Beach finishes with public baths. 

balmoralbeach01.jpg

Kids will love exploring on Rocky Point and prams are usually seen parked before the bridge as families love this little spot where kids can play near the water and land.

There is also a great kids playground near the Boathouse Café and close by there are showers and public toilets as well as other restaurants and cafés across the road.
