Located underneath Target at Westfield (you’ll find the escalator just outside Target to your right), Little Sandpiper is an indoor play centre that will keep the kids occupied for as little or as long as you desire.

Little Sandpiper is suitable for kids up to 12 years of age and comprises two levels. Upstairs is for climbing and playing and also where you’ll find the reception area and cafe.

Downstairs has a giant spinning bowl, arcade-style games, party rooms, a party bakery and the bottom section of the play gym.

Pay on entry at reception. While the friendly staff are assisting you, the kids can check their height on the fun height machine located next to the reception counter. Choose from 2 hours of play or unlimited daily play. Remember to bring non-slip socks for both adults and children or you can buy them at reception for $3 per pair.

There are so many fun things to do as soon as you step inside Little Sandpiper. My kids were immediately drawn to the giant pin art and it was great to watch them using their imagination to create shapes using different parts of their body.

There’s a pedal bike roundabout suitable for kids up to about 6 years of age and older kids (and adults) will love the Kids STEM Lab, a computerised screen featuring different STEM challenges for kids to complete. We loved the challenge of redirecting water to help put out virtual fires the best.

Little Sandpiper boasts 1,200sqm of play area and includes an enormous ball pit guarded by a giant octopus with rope net tentacles big enough to climb right into and through.

Kids will love placing balls into the air cannon and watching them shoot out. There’s another computerised screen in the ball pit encouraging kids to throw the balls to try and hit different characters on the screen.

The cafe serves cold drinks, hot drinks, snacks and ice creams. On weekends they also serve hot food. The cafe area is colourful and bright and there are plenty of adults and children’s tables. It also overlooks the toddler area and is the perfect place to rest with a coffee while your toddler explores.

The toddler area is for kids 3 years and younger and has rubber matting underfoot. It includes a mini slide, mini ball pit, play kitchen, play shop, maze toys and a Duplo wall. There’s also a small rope ladder and rope bridge connecting it to the larger ball pit.

There are three ways to get downstairs. You can take the stairs or, if you’re adventurous, go down the slide or climb down through the playground. The downstairs area of Little Sandpiper features over 30 fun games, all of which require tokens or a charged game card to play. Members can have their card charged at reception and non-members can use the token machine located in the games area. 15 tokens ensured that my four your old had a good half hour of fun on this level.

The games are especially suited to younger kids and are so much fun. There’s bowling, shooting, driving, running games and more.

My four year old’s favourite was the giant doughnut race, where he had to physically roll a giant, plush doughnut to collect points. My six year old loved the ‘claw’ machines the best, especially when she won a pocketful of candy.
