Update Summer 2016.Mama Smile was in Ario as a “pop-up” play centre. I regret to inform you it has now closed. 🙁
My Tuesday feature during the month of NaBloPoMo could win the cheesiest title award; “Choose-day”, EEK!! Showcasing a place of my choice in Saitama. Today, it is one of my favourite play centres for the wee ones, my 3 year old and 1 year old. This post was originally posted on blogger.
Our favourite two. The horse moves if you move as you would on a horse. It’s pretty cool. As is the fuelling station.
The day I went my eldest was in preschool and I had my three girls, who at the time were 4.5 years old, 3 years old and 10 months old. I opted for the hour package which at the time was 500 yen per child. It was great value. My 4.5 year old thoroughly enjoyed herself, but I know that the novelty helped keep her entertained. For her age group a couple of well spread out visits in a year are ideal. However, for the 3 year old and now 1 year old, I envision us going quite often. There is a lot to keep their age entertained and engaged. They also have events and seasonal colouring pages that change each month.
