Hi all, just to let you know that there is a car boot sale at the Dawson Community centre Falkirk this Sunday 3rd May from 11am to 2pm selling kids stuff ages 0-16 and maternity items.

9.45am - 11am but you can stay as long as you like. They are going to run the toddler thing every Mon and Thurs but this is a one off freebie.

It is massive but the toddler area has a very steep ramp ot get over to get in and my DD is 2.5 and tall for her age and had to get help getting up and over.

It has 2 fab laser gun rooms - friend and I had a great time shooting everyone smile Lots of themed rooms with amazing artwork by


a pirate room, american diner, farm, underwater, a replica of Hampden Park - used for kids parties.

They have 2 sensory rooms for littlies - 1 dark and 1 light, an arts and crafts for messy play and making braceltes, bookmarks allsorts of items - reasonably priced too.

Plenty of seats. It is a bit expensive for tiny ones and could do with an area with rideons, soft things for littlies and footholds on the ramp into the toddler bit but all in all it is great. I think Cadwinkles is horrible, Kidz World in Alloa is really good.
It has very healthy freshly prepared food for everyone (babies too) and big squishy sofas, books, ride-ons for teenies, a baby area and this Monday the 11 th it is free entry as they are starting up a toddler play wwhere they will entertain your toddler whilst you can chat and have a cuppa.

Thanks for that. There was a 2 for 1 voucher in the Falkirk Herald too, so I will give it a try and also a £1 off voucher for future use. Lesley x

My friend went on Monday. It was mobbed. Her youngest is coming up on 3 and she really liked it. They have an arts and crafts room as well. Friend said she preferred it to Cadwinkle or Playzar. It's meant to be huge.

Hi Anyone been to The Buzz in Falkirk? Is it suitable for 3yr olds?

Rumpel Wed 06-May-09 11:20:02

No but if it is a choice between dancing at night or going to the gym I'll choose dancing ta! grin I'd like to go to the gym during the day but as there is no creche I can't. Boo! My DH is studying and working Ft at the mo' so I can't leave him with the DCs every night!

ja9 Tue 05-May-09 23:37:52

you mean there us a creche for poledancing?! wink

Rumpel Tue 05-May-09 16:11:05


would love to go to the gym at the Peak but seeing as they have NO CRECHE [grr] I can't!!!

ja9 Tue 05-May-09 15:08:36

Not been to kildean for ages - in fact wasn't sure it was still on with the auction moving etc. All the best for Sunday then.

I'm afraid poledancing is not my thang... but i'll see you at the Peak more evenings than not!

Rumpel Mon 04-May-09 21:55:48

It's in the Meadow Park hotel nightclub area. Wednesday nights or Thursday nights 7.30pm I bellydance Thursday nights so it has to be a Wednesday.


gscrym Mon 04-May-09 18:23:58

Pole Dancing in Bridge of Allan!!!!shock. I thought it'd be a bit up market for that. I'd love to have a go at that. You'll need to post how it goes.

Rumpel Mon 04-May-09 18:19:54

Pants - more sellers than buyers. We're doing Kildean on Sunday as we have spent ages pricing/packing etc! Thanks for signing - just need another zillion sigatures now and Anne McGuire to get back to me hmm.

Did you know we had pole dancing classes in Bridge of Allan? I bellydance already but am starting the pole dancing on Wednesday - I did it before to lose weight after having DD - very difficult but great for weight loss.
Our next mmet is friday 22nd 11.30am at The Buzz in Falkirk if anyone fancies it/can go?

ja9 Sun 03-May-09 20:21:44

Rumpel Sat 02-May-09 16:14:30

MinaLoy Sat 02-May-09 08:26:31

Rumpel Thu 30-Apr-09 21:26:07

Do you work full time? I organise meets x month for Mummies/Mummies to be to get out and have a natter if you fancy it? I'm checking out the Buzz tomorrow to see if it would be good for future meets.
