Indoor Playground For Kids at Ikano Power Centre

Go-Kart at Ikano Power Centre

Ikano Power Centre is a shopping mall in Kuala Lumpur located at Mutiara Damansara, very near to Royale Bintang Damansara Hotel. It is one of our favorite haunts to bring the kids if the weather is too hot or if it is raining as there is a big area for indoor play for the children. 

My kids will always spent a long time there going around from one kiddy rides to the other (without me inserting the coins of course) and they always go back tired but happy and us praying that they will sleep early that night so that we can have some quiet time together. 

Pet Safari at Ikano Power Centre

We will always start with Pet Safari on second floor, it's actually a pet shop that sells pet supplies and also pets such as dogs and cats. They also sell aquarium fishes, koi fishes tropical fishes and exotic animals like snakes, scorpions, tarrantulas and different kinds of lizards. I think the staff there would have recognized us already as "the parents who always come in with their kids but never buy anything." 

After that, it's the merry-go-round and kiddy ride in front of Pet Safari and if daddy or mommy has some errands to do, we will let them go into the indoor playground for an hour. Admission is pretty cheap on weekdays, if I am not mistaken it's $8 per child for unlimited playtime.

Otherwise, we will head to the opposite end near All IT Hypermart and Toys R Us for them to play in the castle placed in the open area near the baby changing room entrance or just looking at the animals kiddy rides there. Recently, Kids Arts and Fun Zone has also expanded into that open area and now they display their inflatables and also a small go-kart area there. Mikail will not allow us to pass that area without him playing the go-kart and at $10 per try (I think it's only for 10 mins) and him insisting on at least two tries, it's getting quite hard on the pocket. So, now we try to avoid that end except for the occasional treat. (Dear Readers, please note that a new indoor playground area is now open, therefore there are no more GO-Karts and inflatables near the Toys R US end, please read about the new indoor playground here)

There is also Little Da Vinci outlet at Ikano Power Centre and I would love to enroll my son there if I am not moving out of the area soon. Sigh, I had wanted to enroll him last year but he was too young. Da Vinci Programmes starts from 3 and 1/2 years old sadly. The arts and craft displayed in the shop looks very interesting.

I love going to this shopping mall as I feel it is one of the lesser crowded shopping malls in Kuala Lumpur and very kids friendly. It's a great place to just bring your kids to run about and release their energy.
