Our son enjoyed Little Ville, the wooden toy portion teaming with PlanToys products for smaller kids at Harbor Land. He stayed there the whole time! While Harbor Land is a fantastic playground for kids, we felt we should look for other play places filled with age-appropriate developmental toys that suit him better. It’ll be well worth his time and, as for the parents–value for money. (wink)
Forest of Play
Good thing Mark discovered that there is such a place! Forest of Play by PlanToys is a nature-inspired play area in Bangkok and Trang, Thailand, for a play-based, interactive experience for kids.
Kids are free to explore the two-floor play areas filled with PlanToys items and other custom-designed activities (using left-over factory materials!) made to inspire independent and imaginary play.
There are two floors of segmented play areas at Forest of Play in Sathorn, Bangkok. The second floor has more pieces for smaller kids, a wooden jungle, a dome with periscope, teepee tent and a lot of spaces of open-ended play. Anything kids can tinker with and encourage parallel, if not collaborative play.
The third floor on the other hand, has a designated reading area complete with tables, and the rest have spaces for themed role plays: bakery, barber shop, grocery, clinic, and a mini farm.
