Last week we we were invited by @licensetopr to the PJ Masks Small Space Day event at the National Space Centre in Leicester 🚀
This was a place we have been talking about visiting for some time now so we were very excited, especially having been asked to go as guests!
I have to admit, we weren’t sure what to expect as the website isn’t very detailed but I thought perhaps it would be quite small and not very busy. We thought it would be a short experience and with the long trip for us, we put it off a bit. Actually, it completely surpassed our expectations! The centre is huge!! Everything was interactive to help with understanding for little ones and much of the interactive items were deliberately quite low so that children could be included.
Ita enjoyed all the activities including PJ Masks themed stories and trails (which she was given some themed stickers for completing!). We were so lucky to see the special show featuring the planets and the screening of two-part Moonstruck episode special, where the PJ Masks must travel to the moon to keep Luna girl from improving her luna magnet powers!
We even met the PJ Masks themselves!
One thing I would mention though is just how busy the restaurant gets. We ate at 11am since we had travelled up early and at that time Is was reasonable busy. Knock on 12 though and the restaurant/eating space was heaving! The queue for the food was chaotic and since it’s right by the entrance and exit (of the space centre) it was exceptionally busy with people standing around.
Before we went, I had read that U5s were free because the centre does not cater for them – I disagree wholeheartedly. The building and all activities are dedicated to the Space Centre’s smallest visitors, there is so much space and the interactive features were low enough for Ita, with lots of extra activities to keep young hands and minds busy.
Watch out for the launch of series 3 of PJ Masks on Tiny Pop on 24 May 2019 🌒
