Mines Shopping Centre - Indoor Playground

Cassia Seed Pit as an alternative to a sand pit in an indoor playground at  Kids Paradise

A few months back, while browsing (I think) I chanced upon a groupon for an indoor playground at Mines Shopping Centre with emphasis on them being the only indoor playground with a cassia seed pit. Intrigued, I made a mental note to check it out one day with my kids.

We finally had a chance to check it out early March since hubby was a bit reluctant to drive so far away to Mines especially since we don't particularly like the crowded shopping centre with limited parkings and nice restaurants  and teeming with teenagers. Not really our shopping centre of choice. But the kids couldn't wait to jump in the moment they saw the indoor playground.

I agree that the main attraction of this indoor playground is the cassia seeds pit which is supposed to be an alternative to a sand pit since KL is so far a way from a beach. But some of the toys supplied (like the water wheel for instance) are not suitable for play with the cassia seeds since it can't flow properly through the water play toys and the kids can't build a sandcastle as cassia seeds can't be moulded. But all the kids sure had fun digging with shovels and transferring the seeds to a toy wagon or truck. Word of warning: the seeds will find its way into your kids clothings, and the fold of the pants and even diapers! Best to give them a shake first before going inside your house :)

Locker facilities are provided but all were taken when we were they, a few low tables with charging stations are also available. There is no dedicated changing station / feeding room for kids though.
