Extreme Fun is a neighbourhood play and party area which offers a soft play area, toddler’s area and passes with access to all areas. Two hours will set you back a mere DHS50 per child (one hour is DHS45), and there is so much to play with and do, the children won’t be bored. There’s also a café (with excellent coffee) where mums and dads can relax. Although taking two children leaves nothing in the budget for food, there is free Wi-Fi so you can check your emails, social media and generally catch up on life while the kids are kept amused. A light, airy space – a great spot for a playdate. Extreme Fun, www.extremefunuae.com (04 452 5543).
Cheeky Monkeys is a big, colourful playcentre with various branches across Dubai. There’s a separate soft play area for big and little kids, as well as a Monkey Clubhouse, Lego station, and arts and crafts station. The Mirdif branch has a large party room and even a mini hair and nails salon for small princesses. There’s a café serving hot drinks, pizzas and snacks, and it overlooks both play areas, so mums and dads can drink coffee in peace. The Mirdif branch is running a promotion at the moment of DHS50 for two hours play (DHS45 for one hour).

Located in IBN Battuta Mall, Kidz Venture is a play space and nursery offering everything from arts, crafts and board games, to book activities for chilled out kids. There’s a climbing wall and indoor sports activities for more active little monsters. At DHS60 per hour for over threes, it is not the cheapest playcentre on our list, but the great facilities make up for that. An extra hour costs DHS30 for over threes and for under threes, it is DHS90 per hour. There is no food and drink facility on site so you can bring your own, or pay a visit to the IBN Battuta food court and get some snacks with your remaining budget. Kidz Venture, Egypt Court, IBN Battuta Mall, www.kidzventure.ae (04 368 4130).
