Wannabees Hornsby - Sydney - Review

We loved reviewing Wannabees Frenchs Forest so much last November that we wanted to checkout Wannabees’ second centre in Hornsby too. The Wannabees Hornsby centre is a newer version of the Frenchs Forest centre which is jam packed with many rooms to explore like a supermarket, vet, grocery shop, radio and news room, hairdresser, fire station, a dance floor, the list goes on!

The kids loved everything about this new centre and especially the grocery shop, hospital and post office. It’s easy to spend hours there visiting all the different rooms. Some rooms are opened at different times so make sure you checkout the schedule.

The vet centre is also a favourite with my kids, they love taking care of sick pets and giving them a bath. Little Mister particularly liked the babies’ room which includes soft play equipment.

Kids can take part in reading the news, interact in different movie screens, take their turn in the radio station, get their hair ready, dress up in the dressing room for a dance off on the dance floor.

Little Miss and her brother also loved pretending to cook and serve up food to us at the pizza café and taking their turn to hose fires down at the fire station practice spot.

There’s also a medical centre and nursery room as well as a post office where kids can pickup letters and parcel to deliver around the centre. Lookout for letterboxes in front of each shop.
