Laying at the entrance to Greenstone Shopping Centre is a children's play area. This 30 000 square foot area is home to Rush Trampoline Park. Rush boasts many activities to keep the children active. These include the trampolines, dodgeball courts, basketball lanes, foam pit, battle beam and fidget ladder. Parents can grab a cup of coffee and watch their children jump for joy from the viewing area or keep themselves entertained watching the game on the big screen. Adventurous parents can even join in on the fun.
Located just past the food court, opposite Mugg and Bean and Musica, is the centre's arcade, aptly named The Fun Company. They offer hours of fun in the form of bumper cars, a bowling alley and all the classic arcade games. Kids, and adults, are bound to have a blast racing, shooting villains, shooting hoops, dancing and whacking the crocodile. All in a bid to score as many tags as possible in hope of getting the largest, loudest and most colourful prize.
Everyone's favourite toy store has recently opened up shop at Greenstone. Toy Kingdom has an assortment of toys including action figures, arts and crafts, baby and early development, games and puzzles, dolls, plush and educational toys. All these may sound pricey. But don't stress. Toy Kingdom has a Royalty Club offering shoppers 1 loyalty point for every R25 spent. This is bound to make Christmas and birthday shopping a little lighter on the pocket.
One of our favourite memories as children was going to the movie theatre with friends, family or as a school outing. Watching a movie on a huge screen with surround sound and that oh-so amazing popcorn that we dusted in way too much spice was the highlight of our day. Spoil your kids with the same lasting memory by taking them out to catch a movie. They show many kid-appropriate and family-friendly movies from animations to feel good comedies. Pro tip, get a cuppa at the Ster-Kinekor coffee vending machine, for a little extra help keeping up with the kids.
Kids love going shopping, trying on new clothes, exploring the hidden world in books and, of course, getting new toys. When its time to spruce up your kid's wardrobe or spoil them with books and toys, head over to Greenstone. Stop by at Exclusive Books or Bargain Books to pick out new and exciting storybooks, fairy tales and colouring books. Or get some much needed wardrobe items from Cotton On Kids, The Hub, Ackermans or Jet.
After all the exertions playing in the arcade, jumping around like a jack-in-the box and all the shopping, the kids are bound to be hungry. Greenstone offers a few kid-friendly restaurants. These include the South African classics like Wimpy, Spur and Panarottis. End all the fun on a sweet note with an ice cold scoop, swirl or cake slice from Milky Lane.
