Westfield London Play Area


Today we went shopping at the Westfield mall in London.  Our main aim was to buy some cute new clothes for the kiddies, but of course it’s nice to have somewhere for Ethan to play between shops to keep him happy.  This is great for his Personal, Social and Emotional Development as he adapts to playing in different areas with unfamiliar children.

We went to the play area, and I have to say that I was a bit disappointed.  For such a large shopping mall, the play area is very small.  It’s also right in the middle of the mall, which means it’s in the way of people trying to walk through and there’s not a lot of space to park prams.  Unfortunately, Ethan wasn't keen on it.  It was very crowded and he very politely kept saying that he had to wait to do things until another child was finished.  He walked through the tunnel a couple of times, but then he was done.  He was much happier to sit on the electronic cars and things that are in the small passageways across from the lifts. 

On a side note, I have to say that I do really like the family rooms in the mall.  They are quite big and spacious for changing nappies, there is a big tv and another ride on car that kept Ethan occupied while I changed Ivy and there are also private feeding rooms.
