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 […]

Romp and Stomp Fun Day for Children + Giveaway!

Wednesday 24 October is Universal Children’s Day and Romp & Stomp Fun Day for Children has been organised to highlight the value of education, experiences and diversity in early childhood development for 0 to 5 year old children. What better place to hold such an event than one of our family’s favourite educational (and fun) […]

HOT: Monkey Mania Indoor Play Centre, Harbour Town at Waterfront City, Level 1 / 120 Studio Lane, Docklands

I recently received an invitation from LivingSocial to review the Monkey Mania Indoor Play Centre in Docklands. LivingSocial is a daily deals site and they recently had a deal to attend Monkey Mania for only $5 per child (normally $10.50 per child under 3 or $12.50 for older children). I’ve never been to a play centre so had […]

HOT: Prahran Market Kids Activities, 163 Commercial Road, South Yarra

Turn tedious grocery shopping into a fun expedition with the family by heading to Prahran Market. Melbourne’s oldest market used to be my local market when I lived south of the river and it’s a great place to browse, try new foods and buy cheap bags of produce around closing time. The undercover market has […]

HOT: Tesselaar Tulip Festival, Tesselaar Tulip Farm, 357 Monbulk Rd, Silvan

No longer can T and I jump on a cheap flight for a weekend in Amsterdam. So the Tesselaar Tulip Festival is our next best thing! Tesselaar Tulip Farm is located at Silvan in the Dandenongs, under an hour’s drive from Melbourne. From mid-September to mid-October every year the Tesselaar Tulip Festival blooms to celebrate the working farm’s tulips […]

HOT: Collingwood Children’s Farm, 18 St Heliers St, Abbotsford

Updated April 2016 I count my family very fortunate to live so close to Collingwood Childrens’ Farm. Other than perhaps Melbourne Zoo, I can’t think of any other places in inner city Melbourne where you can see the sort of animals that feature so much in children’s picture books. When Lady AB was a toddler […]

HOT: School Holidays at Melbourne Museum and Immigration Museum + Giveaway

So it’s the first week of the school holidays….are you tearing your hair out yet? I’ve said before that one of my favourite places to take NKOTB is Melbourne Museum, particularly the Children’s Gallery. And while we try and avoid the venue during school holidays due to the crowds, I know that there will many […]

HOT: Animalia with Baby Love Music Fun, Melbourne Recital Centre, 31 Sturt St, Southbank

NKOTB and I have been attending baby and toddler music concerts at the Melbourne Recital Centre since she was old enough to enjoy them. Our most recent outing was to Animalia, a concert of animal-themed songs and activities held by Baby Music Love Fun. Once again the concert was held in the salon with cushions […]
