My Kids Emporium – Emporium Melbourne
Entrances at both Lonsdale and Little Bourke streets
A couple of weeks ago, Daniel and I enjoyed a beautiful autumn Thursday in the city attending the launch of MyKids Emporium and visiting lola on Lygon street. On level 4 of the world-class Emporium shopping precinct we were treated to a tour of the dedicated kids space covering approximately seven thousand square metres. There was also a sweetly decorated candy bar, delicious catering by Blakes Feast, the most talented balloon man I have ever seen (he made a Despicable Me minion backpack!) and such friendly staff all around. With a variety of concept areas, Baby D was entertained for hours while I checked out the high quality brands in the kids clothing sections. Baby D was in awe – he was so amazed and spent the whole morning playing with the cars and trains (if only there were seats for us adults lol!). Some of the features currently on show at MyKids Emproium are:
– Thomas The Tank Engine Station (we ended up buying Daniel his first ever wooden Thomas train set)
– Barbie Boutique
– Little Tikes Driving Track (your little one can even get their own little license!)
– the action heroes area
– Lego (Daniel loved even just staring at the Lego creations through the display cases!)
– there was also Sands Alive available for demo (the parents loved it as much as the kids – no mess, encourages creativity and it was so therapeutic just holding it in my hands!)
Toy demonstrations, live performance (today it’s The Wiggles!! 14/06/14) and activity days will ensure this kids space is an exciting place to visit all year around for both kids and the parentals!
We were told the vision of MyKids Emporium is to be the destination that kids want to visit as soon as they wake up on a Saturday morning and we’ve already been back a few times! But that’s for another post! (more playtime for Daniel and the food court is so good)
After I was able to pry Daniel away from the train set, we headed down to Lygon for lunch at Tank Fish and Chippery with lola! We ordered the “old school fish and chips” Tank pack and it was fresh, crisp and so tasty with the perfect amount of salt and pepper. We enjoyed it in the park while Daniel immersed himself in fallen autumn leaves.
