Let the children run wild at Champs at Play
It may not be the newest or fanciest play centre in Perth, but getting my toddler daughter to leave the fun at Champs at Play in Kelmscott was HARD WORK.

There were cars to be driven, bikes to be ridden, bouncy castles to flip about in and stuff to climb on. In other words, there was just too much fun in this relatively small centre.

The popular bike track at Champs at Play


We paid a visit during the school holidays, which is usually a big no-no for me as I hate how busy they are and that the school kids tend to take over the entire place and knock the toddlers and pre-schoolers about without much thought, but we took the risk and off we went.

Climb the rope ladder


Champs at Play welcomes children aged up to 12 years. It's fairly dated and there is planned maintenance for the toddler play area, which has a ball pit, playhouse, small slide and padded blocks, plus a playhouse on the outside.

The play structure


There is a bouncy castle and trampoline, plus computer games for children aged 8 and over, although the computers also looked a little dated and I think most of the older kids were too busy running around the place to play.

Bouncy castles are always popular!


Perhaps the best feature of the play centre is the above-ground racing track for mini cars and bikes. It is fully fenced off (obviously) and is a space where the kids can whizz around the track. The main play structure top tier runs through the middle of the track.

It's nap time, mum....


There is a dedicated baby area for children under 12 months, which is fully fenced and packed with age-appropriate toys and things to do.

Have a seat in the cafe


Like all good play centres, Champs at Play has a cafe and rest area. I ordered a coffee, babyccino and slice of banana bread. There are plenty of places to sit down, including comfy couches and big tables for large groups. There are vegetarian and gluten-free options available.

Champs at Play offers birthday parties in one of their dedicated superhero or Disney princess themed party rooms. Parties include catering, a party host, lolly bags and unlimited play.

Champs at Play is a little gem of a play centre. It may need a little bit of work, but believe me, your child will not care in the slightest and you will have a hard time getting them to leave.
