“Fun for kids”
Reviewed December 16, 2013

Great place for kids... Lots of fun and interactive games and toys. Fun water play area.... They provide raincoats but kids can still get quite wet so I recommend bringing a change of clothes just in case.

“New and Improved!”
Reviewed December 4, 2013

There is lots to do to keep young hands and minds busy. Many attractions, places for them to run around, lots of learning going on. Big open spaces. Beautifully maintained. New exhibits. Definitely worth a visit.

“Great for small children”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

We had a really fun time here. My 7 month old and 2 year old played the entire time, and both had their favorites that they kept going back to. This place isn't huge, and only really has like 6 exhibits. I wouldn't plan on spending more than 2 or 3 hours here.

“Paradise for grandparents looking to entertain the grandchildren”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

We were looking for somewhere for an energetic, inquisitive three year old and found it at Stepping Stones. Such a variety of innovative, inventive and classic activities for children of all ages, and our grandson, who goes regularly with his parents, rushed straight into the various activities on offer. We managed to avoid the water area (being cowards) but it was being enjoyed by lots of tots in plastic aprons. The building area was the attraction for our grandson who lives for diggers and tractors. A lovely afternoon where we had nothing to do but watch all the children having fun.

“Fun and funny”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

We took my one year old nephew to Stepping Stones. We were not sure he would get much out of it but were pleasantly surprised. He enjoyed the indoor play area at his level. It was crowded but all the kids (and parents) were well behaved. It was the wet room that really made his day. Even with the too cute rain coat he was outfitted with he was soaked from head to toe. He loved it and we laughed. Pew had lunch in the cafe which was nice. After lunch we went to the outdoor play area. Again, he had a great time and kept us laughing. Take your little ones and enjoy!
