    Design your own PERFECT childs activity centre

    Ladies
    For what its worth I have to research for 21st century ideas for a new venture being put in operation - in Macau.

    For the purpose of this forum the designers are looking for REAL LIFE needs that would be on every mums wish list if they took the child(ren) to a fully equiped activity centre to let them play their hearts out while mum did other relaxing stuff.

    Remember - this is for the Childrens enjoyment so seaweed wraps and facials with Chippendales serving drinks can be assumed to be provided already !

    We have a LOT of space with 275 sq metres put aside for a themed play design with climbing, slides and ball pond etc.
    Add to that a relaxation area adjacent and trained minders if you want to have a complete break.

    Also I want to be aware of MULTI CULTURAL ISSUES as the establishment will cover people from all over the world. It will service 3 hotels as well as the local population.

    One thought is to put in a state of the art ( for 3 -12 yr olds of an electronic intercative play wall ( a bit like a vertical version of twister - in one mode ).

    We have to cater for children up to 16 so compartmentalising for age groups is going to be - interesting. However the total area will run to over 1400 sq metres - so we have hope !

    So for newborns to preschool whats your wish list - no expense spared as its going in as part of a casino complex.

    ALSO - is there a good example in HK already that you might recommend us visiting to understand.

    all the outdoor facilities available at Early Childhood learning toys shop at Megabox for preschoolers, would be perfect if they are availble for my 3 monther.

    Bubbles

    "Equipment" for kids to make/blow bubbles, huge ones I mean. Everybody loves bubbles, right? Especially like the ones you see on bubblemagic.com

    the one thing you must make sure of is that the age appropriate areas are clearly marked and there is someone to "man" them. i sometimes dread taking my 3 year old to the playground as it can occasionally be over-run by 9-12 year olds that dont' give a hoot that there are smaller ones around. and fly through the equipment at, literally, break-neck speed!

    Yes, a valid point and one that is being incorporated. It also goes that older children don't want what the younger ones do.

    At the moment the theming is ( roughly ) Tech / Digital enjoyment, A day at the fun fair and run them of their feet with activity.

    There will be a serviced snacks / relax area with menu service and all beverages on tap. Baby intensive area and then the themed parts. The place will be professionally operated.

    What we are serching for by means of this Vox Pop is ideas for enjoyment.

    I agree with the water play for toddlers/preschoolers. water rivers with things to do like build dams, float boat, a water pump and bubble things such as you find in science centers are great for this age. Provide aprons to wear and the floor can be grated so the water falls under the floor.
