Reviewed January 2, 2014

We bought tickets for 2 parks (RM110 per person - below 3 years is FOC). The Hello Kitty Town is quite small. A tea-cup ride, a photography area, Hello Kitty House, Playground, A maze activity, A small cafe, stage performance area, Activities rooms - all are stated in sequence of the theme park. You can imagine the floor size.
For the Little Big Club, mainly playgrounds with slides, performance stage for Barney and some arcade machines for kids. Up in Thomas & friends theme park, there are also mainly kiddy rides like ferris wheel, train ride, bumper cars and also a small cafe. Washrooms are adequate with family rooms suitable for diaper change.
There is a souvenir shop of all characters when you exit the place. Things are quite expensive but bought one or two items cos I love Hello Kitty.. :)

Since we are not malaysian we don't get the price for local which is 55 rm. We paid 75 rm per person for this playground (not even town). This is a review from a mom of two young girls, 6 and 2 yo and both are hellokitty fans (although not that crazy) and even with this fact I'll still say it's not worth it.

1. The area is too small. Only one floor available and you can see the whole area from entrance (yea the castle has interior inside so you can't see the whole but you got my point)

2. Activities are so limited. Only one ride is available, that's it. Older kids will find it boring, you only go sitting on the small cups, moving around then done. The activities: cookies decorating - the girls can decorate ready-to-eat hellokitty face cookies with strawberry jam and chocolate spread (and eat it afterwards), and craft where they can arrange colorful beads for hellokitty face. When we came the dress up activity was closed, I think it might be a better option instead of the other two which you can easily find at malls or other places (no need to go to hellokitty town for this!) with definitely much much cheaper price. Oh there is nail polish too but you will need to do it by yourself - we skipped it.

3. The hellokitty house is cute, nice for taking pics but it's not that impressive, you won't see small details like ones in disneyland, for example.

4. Hellokitty show - nothing much, only hellokitty n daniel dancing together with 3-4 background dancer.

5. Meet n greet - you can have pictures taken with hellokitty n daniel, melody and batz marru. The queue was not long when we came so it's good. The photographer will take your pics and you can buy it at the counter, they have some packages like RM 150 to have your photo as keychain, etc.

The only thing I found interesting is the castle where hellokitty was captured and you have to go inside, find the clues to solve the puzzle and save her. Although my girls found the castle a bit scary with the sound effect, the interior is more interesting - we're too busy looking for the clues til we forgot to take pics inside!

Bottomline, come if you really have nothing else to do in the area, and if you consider rm 225 (for 3 person, under 3 yo is still free) cheap for 2-3 hours.
Consider buying combo ticket, rm 110 for this town and the other park, you definitely can do both in less than one day.

We bought 2 park tickets( Hello Kitty on the 1st fl, Little Big Club on 2nd&3rd fl. ) Pricey, if u compared to legoland admission. Don't forget to bring along your used legoland ticket or your legoland annual pass card to get 10% disc here. The themepark suited for young toddler to 8 yo. Bigger kids will get bored here. Don't have many selection of food inside the building. But next door they have some restaurant from Malay food to Japanesse food.

This place is Recommended for hello kitty fans.... altho boys and men may not find it appealing..

I was here with my 2 kids on a Sunday afternoon. Hello Kitty Town is quite a small attraction, taking up only one floor in Puteri Habour Theme Park. If you buy a 2-park ticket, you can access the 2nd and 3rd levels where the Little Big Club is located. There you can find attractions based on Pingu, Bob The Builder, Barney, Thomas Train etc. Level 3 has the most rides such as mini-bumper cars, a mini ferries wheel and a helicopter ride. Level 2 has a large indoor playground with a slide and a mini-obstacle course

A walk-through of Hello Kitty Town, without taking part in any of the attractions, would take about 15-20mins. Most of the attractions are workshop-based where you can decorate your cookies and your nails and would appeal mainly to the younger girls. I was there on a Sunday afternoon and the queues were about 20-30 people long. Because of the nature of the activity, it took a long time for the queue to move. We decided to bypass all these decorative workshops and went straight to the Black Wonder attraction. It's the most interesting attraction where the participants had to solve several interactive puzzles.

The ticket is quite expensive for the limited attractions. Unless you are a great Hello Kitty fan, a much more fun and value for money option would be to go to Legoland instead.
