What should I do on a rainy weekday in Melbourne when you have the day off? Easy, sleep in, lie in bed and watch movies all day, oh, I forgot about the little toddler bugging me to get up. Off to the playcentre then to let her run wild for a couple of hours (or should I say burn off some energy?).

On Monday we decided to check out the newest Croc’s playcentre located in Narre Warren which is about 45 minutes south east of Melbourne City. Croc’s have a huge variety of activities to do for kids of all ages.  The toddler play area (which is gated and enclosed) is dedicated for children four years and under.  This area hosts a mini jumping castle, slides and lots of little attractions for the kids.  This is where we spent most of our time.  There is also a dedicated baby’s play area too that is safe and enjoyable with lots of learning activities.

The other play area for the bigger kids is absolutely fantastic.  It has three giant slides, a jumping pillow with slide, bikes, mini trampoline, rock climbing wall and a huge combat ball pit area.

Need a break after the chaos of kids running around and screaming (yes we all know that this happens and sometimes we walk out with a migraine that we didn’t actually pay for), then head over to the Muffin Break Café and enjoy some signature beverages and some delicious favourites, including muffins, cakes, slices and savoury snacks.

What I like about Croc’s Narre Warren is that they have a few new party ideas for the kids.  Below are a couple of the packages they have available but please call the centre for more details, pricing and availability.

Would I be back? Absolutely, my daughter had a wonderful morning there but we did go during the week, so it was a lot quieter then I would imagine the weekends to be.  The playcentre equipment was very clean which was a big plus in my books too.

I was a paying guest at Croc’s Narre Warren and as always I would never endorse or recommend a service or product that I didn’t honestly enjoy.
