This is the perfect all weather venue for Mummas and their offspring in the Hills District of Sydney!
Lollipops Playland and Cafe is a large air conditioned space jam packed with heaps of fun play equipment for both big and small kids. The main clientele of Lollipops are definitely the U6s, however there are heaps of things to do for kids up to the age of about 11 years.
Older children will love running through the huge playframe and then sliding down the giant slides. These slides are only for kids 6 years and over (or for adults who want to slide down with their little people). There's also a super cool airplay complete with cannons and foam balls to keep energetic kids occupied. And when they've done all that, there's a jumping castle too.
If you want to learn the basics of how to crochet, or if you are looking for a new hobby, this Crochet for Beginners class is for you!
There are special areas just for toddlers where they can play safely, and the staff normally do a great job keeping older kids out. There's ride on cars, a mini ball pit, cubby house and little slide, plus heaps of things for them to climb over and rock on.
A cute teacup and saucer ride is a firm favourite with the young kids. And don't worry it's big enough for parents to go on with their babies and toddlers.
When the kids have exhausted themselves they can grab a refreshment at the onsite cafe. The café serves up reasonable coffee and a selection of sweet treats (slices, cookies and muffins) to enjoy inbetween meals. There's a self help water station and just to let you know you can't bring your own food into the playland.
At lunch time (or for an early dinner) there is a selection of wood fired pizzas and other hot meals (nachos, schnittys, chicken wings etc) to fill your bellies. There’s a great menu for kids. They can have everything from a simple vegemite sandwich to a pizza, and for any meals that come with hot chippies you can opt to have carrot sticks instead!
Whilst they are munching on their lunch, kids can chill out and watch the TV that is showing kids shows on the wall behind the café area. And when it's time to pee, there are full toilet facilities available including a baby change table.
