Wannabees Frenchs Forest - Sydney - Review

We recently visited Wannabees Frenchs Forest before the school holidays and had a great time! Kids really enjoyed spending time at this child size city. The 1100 sqm building comprises of a beauty salon, grocery store, vet office, café & restaurant, post office, bank, doctor’s office, school, library, jail & police station, maternity ward, radio & tv studios, fashion shop and a construction site.

Children can dress up, role play and pretend to be a doctor, postman, fireman, vet, beauty therapist and much more! Little Miss’ favourite spot was the beauty salon where she pretended to get her hair done and had her nails painted by one of the staff.

Little Mister and Miss’ other favourite rooms were the grocery store, pet shop, jail and the café & restaurant. They loved pretending to give dogs a wash at the vet’s salon and making coffees & food at the café/restaurant.
