Paris to Provence, Melbourne’s favourite festival celebrating all things French, is back in the bucolic surrounds of National Trust’s Como House this weekend. There’s market stalls, music, food and festivities and the festival gets bigger and better every year (this is its third year).

HOT: Toddler Tuesday, Queensland Art Gallery / Gallery of Modern Art, Stanley Place, South Bank, Brisbane

Regular readers will know that our extended family is based mostly in Queensland, which means that we make regular visits to the Sunshine State. This gives us a chance to explore and review kid and family-friendly venues outside of Melbourne in case you travel interstate too. If you’re in Brisbane one of our favourite places […]

HOT: Wind, Wheels and Water, ArtPlay, Birrarung Marr, Melbourne

Lady AB and I are big fans of the events available at ArtPlay and I always look forward to browsing the new release of activities every term. This term we booked for Wind, Wheels and Water, a workshop devised by Drop Bear Theatre for babies under 2 years old. Basically it was a multi-sensory playground […]

HOT: Playon Crayons by Studio Skinky

One of Lady AB’s new found hobbies is drawing. In fact, one of the few Chinese words she says distinctively is to ‘draw pictures’. I’ve not introduced Lady AB to colouring in or playdough previously because to be honest I was/am precious about the state of our house. However, I think she’s learnt to draw […]

I lived in London for years and although I liked to visit the British Museum regularly I think I saw about 1/1000th of their vast collection.

HOT: Gallery of Modern Art, Stanley Place, Southbank, Brisbane

Given that we live in Melbourne this blog is very Melbourne-centric. But we do travel occasionally (especially to Queensland where our extended families live) and sometimes we come across fabulous places and things outside Melbourne that we feel deserve a mention on the blog. The Gallery of Modern Art in Brisbane is one of them. […]

HOT: Children’s Week Picnic, Werribee Park, Gate 2, K Road, Werribee

When I was small and asked my parents why there was Mothers’ Day and Fathers’ Day but no Children’s Day, their reply (which they must teach at Parenting 101) was ‘Every day is Children’s Day.’ So I was quite surprised to discover that there was such a thing as Children’s Week. In fact, it’s a […]

HOT: The Art of the Brick, Federation Square, Melbourne

For a grown woman, I get inordinately excited by Lego. Witness me lining up whilst 8 months pregnant to get into Brickvention, Australia’s premier Lego fan convention. So as quickly as you can say ‘Lego Technic’ I hit the purchase button for tickets to The Art of the Brick, an exhibition of large-scale Lego sculptures by Lego […]
