The play daters
Charlie 6 years old, student at Dulwich
Favourite activities Board games and anything super active like ice skating. Her mum is DCB's skate coach.
First impression Normally, she's not too into the colourful little blocks, but was a great sport.
Friend potential If they were ever to get together again, no Lego per her request.
The venue Had tonnes of fun in the giant block pit.
Mum's opinion 'This is a great venue for young kids around five years old. The place is quite nice and surprisingly quiet for a children's venue located in a mall.' -Camilla Underhill, Charlie's mum
Brayden 7 years old, student at House of Knowledge
Favourite activities Football, tennis and basketball. He also loves music including playing the piano and his after-school dance class.
First impression Brayden loves making Lego creations and the cartoons playing in the shop were his fav.
Friend potential They both share some friends in the international school community.
The venue Loved! When the play date ended, he would've even stayed a bit longer.
Mum's opinion 'The venue was clean and would be nice for a birthday party. Only downside: the television playing cartoons was a bit distracting for some children.' -Lundy Clark, Brayden's mum
