Summer Fun at PlayPoint

Summers in Dubai are here which means – a ‘BIG NO’ to outdoors as it gets very hot and humid! –Which also means that mummies around in Dubai are on big hunt for indoor play areas to get that energy out of kids that possibly damage the house🤣

The first thing you mummies need to do is download Kidzapp on your phone- and relax! It’s an amazing app that tells you all the activities for your little ones with details! I personally love it! That’s how I found PlayPoint!

So last weekend,we drove off to the Sustainable city Dubai and found really cool indoor play place called ‘PlayPoint’- – It’s a nice not -so-big indoor play area with slides, a trampoline, a ball pit and some cute easy rides around along with lots of space to run around where kids keep jumping from one end to the other.

They even have a small area for birthday parties nicely equipped with chairs and tables- also used as their indoor activities such as art and crafts room.

A cafe inside for quick coffee and juice makes it fun for mummies to chit chat while kids play- and that too a good hot coffee!

Nayel and I enjoyed sliding down- as he calls it ”weeeeee”- non- stop , his favorite out of everything. I had to run all the way in the sneaking play area while playing peek a boo with him- which was a lot of fun!

I went along with my friend so it was refreshing to let kids play while we gave ourselves a break with a nice cappuccino!

If you’re around the sustainable city area- this is a nice place for kids to enjoy.

One thing that I would really wish for them to have is a role play area with toys around- kids under 3 didn’t have much to explore on their own and needed to be supervised all the time for the play as it was not age appropriate for independent fun.

But definitely a place for kids age 4 +

Important things:

-Kids under 3 need to be in supervision- so it’s not a drop off kind of place.

– it’s appropriate for 3 years and above – as they can independently play and enjoy.

– Don’t forget your socks- its a soft play area. Even if you do, you can buy a pair from the playarea.

– Beverages and light snacks are available for you to purchase, not included in the price for play.

After a good 2 hours of play and running around, Nayel was hungry and so it was easy to take him out 😛- Play point’s lovely staff handed kids some balloons as they waved goodbye!

Until next time!

What other indoor places do you recommend me to take Nayel?

Kidzapproved! – Here comes Caboodle!

I’m a very picky parent when it comes to indoor play areas. As an educationist, I love outdoor play grounds way more than indoor amusements for kids. But as an expat in Dubai, keeping extreme hot and humid weather conditions in mind, we’re super blessed to have huge indoor malls and loads of activities for kids- away from heat!

Last week, I was very confused about where to take Nayel for some interactive play- that’s when I downloaded and explored ‘Kidzapp’ and found ‘ Caboodle’!

My first reaction : ‘ A play area for the whole family! ‘

It’s a beautiful mini world of imagination, creativity and fun ! From soft play area to reading books, from pretend play to lego, from art n crafts to singing and dancing, from a cafe to a small toy shop , you name it and they have it!

Nayel had a time of his life! He doesn’t really easily leave me in play places but at Caboodle, he didn’t even care if I was around him.

With so many options and such a happy staff around , it was hard for him to choose what to play with first. He ran , jumped and danced from one end to the other with kids around. ‘Baby shark’ and ‘head shoulders knees and toes’ kept him grooving all the time! It was such a treat to see him exploring and playing independently.

Caboodle has many branches across in Dubai, we visited the one in Dubai mall. They have many offers for parents to either take kids for play inside or drop them off and have a shopping experience.

Caboodle is not just a play place , they also have a super cute and kids friendly saloon inside ! Nayel desperately needed a haircut hence we grabbed the opportunity at Caboodle for his long due hair grooming! I was so happy to see kids enjoying on ‘seats with steering wheels’ and toys around them to keep them hooked! Not only this, but Tv screens with their favorite cartoons to entertain them while they get a nice haircut! How kids-luxurious!! What else do you need?

In addition to all of this, they even have a small cafe inside ! Can you believe- I was so tired hence I left Nayel inside and sat comfortably ordering some carrot cake bites , a sandwich and a cup of hot tea. Perfect mummy relaxation 😍. Later, Nayel had his fresh orange juice and popcorns too from there. We didn’t needed nor wanted to step out !

If you’re looking for a happy play place, which is super duper clean and full of activities, I highly recommend Caboodle! You will love it!!

Thank you Kidzapp for introducing Caboodle to us! If you haven’t got kidzapp, please download the app and enter the world of adventures for each day!

Caboodle, you stole our heart! Can’t wait to come back again!
