A couple of weeks ago I came across a new business in my hometown, Ballpool Heaven Scunthorpe , and it looked so much fun! (Not sure who for though, me or the little man…) We couldn’t make the session advertised at the time, but when I saw there was another one today I jumped at the chance, anything fun to get us out of the house! It’s only £2 a session too, which is great as there is a lot of equipment, and you get a raffle ticket thrown in. Also the session is for age 3 & under only, to avoid other older children potentially being too rough.

We arrived at 9am, right on time, and there was only one other person there for now. We took our shoes off and I put little man down, he was quite wary at first, I think it was just because it was all something new to him! I put him in one of the ball pools though and he soon started getting accustomed, as we have a ball pool at home. He has a very short attention span most of the time though so he was soon out of there finding what else he could do. He discovered tunnels, tents, rockers, whirlees, and another 2 ball pools! Also provided was some soft play equipment including blocks, which he found great fun in banging (he loves to bang everything). He even seemed to make a girly friend! 

He did get a bit stroppy after a while, because I was trying to stop him doing things he shouldn’t, like climbing on chairs, stealing other people’s drinks and shoes… He was also getting tired as he’d been up since 7am and as we know, playing gets tiring! 

All in all we had great fun, and will definitely be going back for another session.

Ballpool Heaven also hire out their equipment for parties & functions, prices range from £60 – £160. 

I paid for this myself and wasn’t asked to write this review, I just wanted to share our experience! All thoughts & opinions are honest & my own.
