Bondies Playground, Kemang

This is my three on a Very steep and fast slide, they loved it!




This toy scrunches up to a small ball and then expands to a HUGE ball, all the kids loved it.

We have visited another playground in South Jakarta. This is Bondies in JL Ampera, Kemang.
This playground is great fun and above average in the safety area. The only bad point I noticed is that at the top of the slippery slide the netting had come away and a child could fall 3-4 m to the ground.
Besides the area in the photos there is a lounge area with books, toys, TV and a computer style game console. There is also a craft area where you can pay extra and do a craft project. The girls decorated a headband each for 20 000RP ($2.80).

The bonus of this playground is that it is licensed; the kids can play and mums can have a margarita or two........

It was very quiet on Friday afternoon and the Aussie mums were a real contrast to the only other group of mums who were locals. There was a table full of coffees and ice teas and a table full of margaritas....I will let you guess what table I was at!
It was a great way for the nine kids to burn off any excess energy at the end of the week, all the kids were happy to go home at 5.30pm for bath and bed!

This play ground is not cheap. For my three kids it was 105 000RP entry fee ($14.00) and food and drinks cost me quite a bit more (alcohol is very expensive in Indonesia, hence why we don't drink out often!)

I would love it if our play places sold wine around here during children's play time. A little envious... Looks like fun for everyone!
