When Oscar was a baby, we were looking for a large indoor play centre, clean, comfortable and offering delicious food for child and parent. We felt it was something Shepparton needed, and it became our dream to provide it.
And so our journey began. We began travelling around, visiting different play centres, with a vision to take the best from what we saw to our very own space. We both come from large families, and our nieces and nephews range from babies to young adults. We wanted a centre that could cater for all ages, with play spaces for infants, children, and teens. And, of course, the adult who still loves to play like a kid!
We envisioned a space that would allow parents to sit in comfort, to relax, chat, read, while their children played.
Many of the play centres we visited provided great play spaces, but not so great adult chill out areas. Often, these areas were too hot or too cold. Refrigerated climate control was high on our list of priorities. We want you to be cool in summer and warm in winter.
Great food and coffee was an even higher priority! In the centres we visited, the food and coffee were OK, but we wanted delicious. We are very excited in managing to secure some incredible cooks and baristas, so we feel confident that we will bring delicious to Rebound. Our focus is on yummy, fresh and healthy food and high quality coffee.
After years of research and planning, our vision is rapidly taking shape. We are so close now and we feel so proud of what we have achieved. We have a dedicated toddler area, a massive indoor playground with an awesome ball shooting area that kids and adults will love, and a huge trampoline area for all ages with the largest trick air bag Shepparton has seen.
Our vision all along was to build a play centre that we would love to bring our children to. And now Rebound is almost here, the best bits from all we have seen, near and far.
We very much hope to see you soon, and hope you will love iPlay as much as we do. We look forward to chatting with you and listening to your feedback.
Josh, Jo and theRebound crew.
