A day out for children at Kingfisher Shopping Centre

We whizzed around on the bumper cars, laughing at each other getting stuck. I couldn’t believe we were in a shopping centre. Not the sort of place I’d naturally go for a day out with young children. Let’s face it, shopping really is no fun for them. So, when I was asked to review the Kingfisher Shopping Centre in Redditch with the children, I was surprised.

Toddler sensory was just Libby’s sort of thing, playing with gym equipment and…
