Lots of fun activities for kids, all under one roof
When Melbourne temperatures hit 40°C and above, you have no air conditioning at home and little children, where do you go?

I took my little rascals to Lollipops Playland & Cafe in Bentleigh East on day two of Melbourne's January heat wave, enticed with a promise of air conditioning and fun school holiday activities.

As well as the expected child entry fee, there is a charge for adults ($3.50 at time of writing), although this does include a voucher for a hot or cold drink. There are three seated areas, with a reasonably priced cafe menu including healthy food options.

Children are spoilt for choice when it comes to playtime, with big slides, a maze of multi-level walkways, a new 3 level airplay zone, a craft room, and a selection of video games to play. In the middle of the centre, ride-on cars set off around a track every hour. A toddler area at the front of the centre separates the little ones from the big kids, with smaller toy cars to ride on.

Lollipops Playland arrange extra activities during the school holidays. We were treated to face-painting and to our delight, a butterfly tent with real butterflies!

The butterfly tent happened to be a special activity over two days of the January summer school holidays, however, I am told there is a possibility the butterflies will return, and the next school holiday activity will be a reptile visit!

All of the above is inclusive of entry fee, which I believe is great value for money. Do check it out if you are in the area, hot or rainy days have a tenancy to be busy, so get in early and grab yourself a table and a cuppa while the kids go crazy. Remember to bring a pair of socks for your children to wear.
