On Friday, 26th April 2019, my husband, sons and I headed to the Museum of Illusions with varied expectations. I had seen so much of it on Instagram that I knew I wanted to walk out with some cool pictures of all of us. My husband just wanted to explore a new place with us, thankfully a place that did not involve any shopping, eating or running up and down play areas. The kids – well, they just wanted to have loads of fun!
Things to do in Dubai
My son, A, had been to Mattel Playtown in Citywalk, Dubai on a school trip with his friends, and couldn’t stop talking about it for days to come. They went for a short while, and they caught Barney and his team in action, but he missed seeing his current favorites – Bob, the Builder and Fireman Sam. I had promised him we would definitely be making a trip to Playtown with his little brother, P during the summer break.
Mattel Playtown has 5 diferent themed zones, dedicated to different characters, namely, Barney, Bob the builder, Thomas and Friends, Fireman Sam and Angelina Ballerina. Each zone has different activities based on the different characters, mainly helping with developing motor skill and social skills. There is a stage where the different characters come on to sing, dance and interact with their little audience.
So on a Thursday afternoon, my two super excited boys and I, went to Mattel Playtown! To save time, we bought our tickets online. We got our entry wrist bands from the reception and proceeded to the first floor, where we were just in time to catch Bob the Builder live in action, on the centrestage.
