What A Great Place To Go!

This afternoon, hubby & I took Shern to a great place.
Shern had a great time there...

...cooking


...and being a chef



...being a basketball player


...being a babysitter


...and playing with his favourite toy cars



So where is this place?
It is the i-Play Toy Library in the Penang Children's Library.



What I like about this place is that it is:
  • child-friendly
  • air-conditioned
  • spacious
  • clean
  • very new and well-kept toys
  • a large variety of educational toys
They have many sections in Toy Library. There are many buckets that have many, many toys in it. From the usual blocks to some haven't-seen-before toys.
There are books and little tables and chairs, pram, dolls, soft toys and a basketball hoop.



Big wooden toys such a toy kitchen equipped with toy food (pizza, carrots, cake, etc), a refrigerator and even a sink. They even have a Mixer. Hahaha.



This is another section with the glass cupboard full of board games. And look at the costumes for children to play dress up and the big stereo speakers with a collection of CDs.



Well, hubby & I are both members of the adult Penang library. I saw the Children Library the last time we went, knowing that we will be bringing Shern there when he is older. When I saw the i-Play Toy Library section, I immediately know Shern will fall in love with the place. And I was right! I think Shern loves it there more than his own house! hehe.

All you need to do is to bring your child there and register your child with a MyKid and pay RM12/year.

Shern had so much fun there and of course he cried when I took him home! We'll definitely be going there again next week.
