Bonkers Indoor Playcentre & Café (Brighton East)




THIS HAS NOW CLOSED

Take time out while your children are playing and learning in the most exciting jungle playcentre in Melbourne.

Bonkers is a special playcentre where all parents, grandparents, guardians, carers and friends can relax in our music café or have fun playing with their children.

Bonkers is based on a jungle theme, so come on in and meet the mascot Bonkers the monkey, Cedric the snake, Tilly Toucan and many more fun characters

With a fun jungle maze, special tree house, selection of educational toys and a variety of computer games, everyone will have a great time in this unique playcentre.

For very little people there is a professionally designed play area with safe climbing structures, a slide and even a toddlers ball pool.

Special Programs for Kids:
Story telling time and music programs will enhance your children and give them an opportunity to learn, sing, dance and play music in a fun and enjoyable environment.

With the delightful introduction to music your children will learn to appreciate music, sing in groups and solo, develop rhythm and beat, express themselves creatively, develop confidence in their musical abilities and much more.

The Bonkers Beat music program combines traditional Russian teaching methods with the well-known concepts of Kodaly and Orff.

Review:


The Play Centre has a Jungle theme throughout. The main play structure is quite compact with a two level spiral tunnel slide and a two level straight slide which is very fast (and scary). The structure has a fair bit of horizontal tubes, a ball pit, soft -multi-coloured ramp into the middle of the structure, Burmese bridge, cockpit and various obstacles. There is an area for under 2 years old which is an enclosed area with drum seats, play area with soft mats and a ball pit. There is a Toddler Haven area (under 4s) which has a soft slide and soft scrambling wall leading down to an area with a short tunnel.

At the end of the building were two huge party room areas with paintings of African animals on the walls. There was an area for playing computer games but these didn't seem to be functional.

The eating areas which overlook the play area have about 18 square tables. Overall the Play Centre was a bit small and limited in play opportunities compared to many other Play Centres. The Centre seemed to be designed to cater for different activities to be held in the Centre rather than be a dedicated Play Centre. The staff were friendly and attentive.

On a day when the outside temperature was in the low 20s, the Play Centre was very cold - bring a jumper. There were quite a lot of rides /amusements which require payment - one of my pet hates.
