Play gyms in Huddersfield

Having 3 kids means that you spend most of your days in soft play gyms.
Like everything, there are certain play gyms I prefer for various reasons, whether that be the size, accessibility, variety for different ages, food and drink or just the quality of their actual gym.

The Zone

The zone is aimed at children up to the age of 12. It has a big multi lane slide, interactive mazes, a ball cannon and themed panels which are all fun. They have a lovely and comfortable adult seating area as well as a on site cafe which serves hot and cold food and drink.
We had my eldest's 2nd birthday party here and it was fun and suitable for all ages that we invited (from 1 - 6 years old). 

Opening Times:

Mon - Fri: 10am -7pm 
Sat - Sun: 9am - 5pm


£3.50 per play (1-2yrs)
£4.50 per play (3-12yrs)


St Andrews Road,
West Yorkshire
Tel: 01484 484134

Fizzy Lizards

Fizzy Lizards is most suitable for children under the age of 8. They have recently had a major referb which in all honesty, I would say has made it more suitable for older children and less for babies and toddlers. It has a large ball pit, a double slide, rope bridges, log ramps and much more. They have a large outdoor area which is lovely during the summer months. The baby area is now a small corner in the middle of a busy path through the actual gym with a box of toys which are only available between 10-11am and 2-3pm. They have a lovely cafe area which serves both hot and cold food and drink. I would still highly recommend this play gym for anyone with independant walkers, my 20 month old and 3 year old both love to play here.

Opening Times:

Mon - Sat: 9am - 4pm


£3.50 per child
£1.00 for non walkers


Cathedral House,
St Thomas Road,
West Yorkshire


Playworld is not only a soft play area, it is also a roller skate centre which means there are things to do for various ages. In the soft play, they have a lovely baby/ toddler part which has different soft shapes as well as a ball pit. They also have a really nice bumpy slide for older children or even parents with younger children. 
With the addition of the skating rink, you could have a fun day out for anyone of any age! (Even if you don't want to bring your children along!) 


Opening Times & Prices:

As the opening times and prices aren't very straight forward, this image is directly from their website with all the information needed. (Correct as of April 2017)


Westbourne Road,
West Yorkshire
Tel: 01484 420404

Overall, there are benefits to all three play gyms I have chosen to recommend and I would definitely suggest you try them out for yourselves when you're in the area!

The kids suitcases - What I've packed

I searched the internet high and low for lists with quantities of things to pack for children going abroad... I found a slight list on a forum but no official lists.

I'm packing the suitcases!

"Whoah! We're going to Ibiza" - Vengaboys
We're on a countdown to the holiday! I'm really starting to look forward to it. It'll be the first holiday abroad with three children and I am starting to wonder if we're just plain crazy.

I've been taking my time packing just so I don't forget anything. I've written list after list, packed the suitcases three times and photographed every item of clothing going into the suitcases so I know what I'm missing (for the kids)... yes, I am going mad!

These kids will be completely kitted out for this holiday... and summer 2017. I keep finding things that I like and just have to have.

A Formal Apology

I've not really been posting much recently and for that, I apologise. 

I've been trying to keep my social media channels updated (Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter) but unfortunately haven't been posting on my blog and I thought you deserved an explanation.

Recently, I've been having health issues. Fainting weekly to be precise. I have ongoing heart problems which as far as I'm aware, seem to be the cause of my fainting episodes however I'm waiting for further tests to be done by the cardiologist to confirm this.

Hawkin's Bazaar Cupcakes Tin Tea Set

Having searched for what seemed like forever to find a tea set suitable for my 3 year old, I finally chose this Cupcakes Tin Tea Set from Hawkin's Bazaar and I am so happy that I did. 

It's unbreakable, and trust me, it's been through the wars between my 3 year old and 1 year old. It's lightweight making it (maybe minus the tray) a perfect travelling toy.
