Funtopia - Fit & Fun For Mums, Dads & Bubs - Melbourne - Review

Kate's little adventure seekers were invited to Funtopia Maribyrnong this morning to test out the NEW Fit & Fun for Mums, Dads & Bubs program. They really enjoyed this great new program for little ones 4 years and under. The super helpful staff gave some tips to Kate's little Arlo which made him a super quick climber across the center and also enjoyed climbing with his dad. Little Macy was hesitant at first however with the help of staff was able to gain confidence and climb without a rope on small sections of walls. Turns out she's also a great little climber and will try using a rope to climb higher next time. Both had a fantastic time at Funtopia Maribyrnong and could have stayed there for an easy 3 to 4 hours. Thank you for the great pics and highlights Kate xo Catherine.
