Over the weekend we had the pleasure of being invited to We Rock the Spectrum Dubai on Jumeirah Beach road in Beach Park Plaza. The venue was easily found and there was free valet parking. The kids noticed the huge window front of We Rock the Spectrum and were already eager to get in!
As we entered the plaza, We Rock the Spectrum Kids Gym was situated conveniently on the ground floor – very manageable for mothers with buggies. Upon entering we were welcomed with smiles and asked to fill out kid’s details, we remembered our socks, however they are available to purchase along with other items such as kids dress up, educational toys and craft materials, just look out for The Rock Shop!
Whilst the kids took off their shoes I also noticed a sanctuary corner for mummy’s and daddy’s serving coffee, tea, snacks and popcorn for the kiddies, as I sat down for a minute (the big kid that I am) I was happily surrounded by sensory like sequenced cushions – which any child is drawn to! My moment of relaxation was cut short as Raef and Safá were practically jumping over the secured gate! As the kids entered they both ran in opposite directions – Raef ran straight to the two zip lines in the center of the kid’s gym and Safá skipped away to the dressing up corner – thank god Reém was having her afternoon nap as I was torn between the two!
Talking of Reém sleeping I was tempted to wake her up when I saw the lovely swings hanging from the ceiling, a car, the cutest sail boat ever and a vast variety of sensory related swings! The kids were definitely spoilt for choice, whether it was arts and crafts to role play or burning a few calories on the kid’s treadmill and trampoline.
An hour into play and Reém woke up, after a quick nappy change she was ready to go, her first point of interest was following her brother on the climbing wall – being the little daredevil that she is, and she also climbed the steps to the zip line! It was nice to see that all 3 of them (of different ages) could experience the same activity together, at one point I found them sailing away on the boat swing!
As I walked around I came across the calming room and by far this became my favorite spot, a small room with cushions, a cute tee pee and story books – a great way to end the day.
Definitely credit is due to the management in regards to planning, from the colors used to the placement of equipment this was thought out very well… The idea behind it all was to offer a place where children of all abilities can play in a safe environment, taking into consideration sensory, strength, movement and social interaction. Apart from open play We Rock the Spectrum Kid’s Gym also offers its own unique classes such as yoga, music, dance and much more. Dr. Nashila Jaffer, the owner, conceived the idea when she saw a gap in the UAE market for Sensory based kids gym, following her personal experiences.
You’re also in for a treat as We Rock the Spectrum Kid’s Gym offers catered birthday parties – you can choose from Rock Basic, Rock Star and Rock Star Deluxe which each come with an hours access to the kids gym.
THAT’S NOT ALL…
