Star Light Kids
Level 3, Avenue K, 156 Jalan Ampang, KL (www.facebook.com/startlightkids). Star Light Kids is an activity centre for children encompassing a jungle gym play area, café, event spaces for parties, activities for children and forums for parents on a monthly basis. When we visited, the centre was barely a week old, with the official launch planned for August 22. Fariza, the ‘Kaptain’ of Star Light Kids, has plenty of plans for the future: ‘I’m thinking of doing pre- and post-natal classes and CPR. We’ll also be doing kids’ activity classes like Zumba. We’ll have arts and crafts class and kids’ birthday parties too.’ The highlight of the sprawling indoor playground has to be the ball-blasting area, which has also proved popular with dads, who ask if they can come in and play there while their child invariably hits the jungle gym. Children must be accompanied by at least one guardian at all times. Daily, 10am-10pm (earlier closing time is under proposal, check Facebook for updates). Weekdays, (Children 4 and above) RM45 per entry, RM55 per hour for dropand-shop, (Children under 4), RM20 per entry; Weekends and public holidays, (Children 4 and above), RM55 per entry, RM65 per hour for drop-and-shop, (Children under 4), RM30 per entry. First guardian enters for free; additional guardians may enter the play area for RM10.
