On November 1st Baby & Child headed to Couqley to host a playdate event geared towards mums with toddlers offering them a place to meet-up, catch-up and enjoy entertainment provided for the kids.

Located in Jumeirah Lake Towers, Couqley is a french-inspired bistro with a charming atmosphere, wholeheartedly embracing Parisian style with vintage posters and gingham cushions 

As well as plenty of delicious, sophisticated french cuisine, Couqley prides itself on generous provisions for smaller guests. Their Petit Couqley menus include food suitable for a range of ages that even fussy eaters will find hard to resist. 

In a city where new places to dine open every week, it can nonetheless be tough to find eateries that truly live up to their family-friendly label. Enter Couqley, with a spacious, dedicated play area inside the restaurant where kids can let off steam, leaving parents to enjoy their meal. 

Filled with toys, a play house, activities and plenty more to interact with, children will find it difficult to get bored here. They can have a go on a rocking horse, do some colouring or  simply sit and watch one of the kid's movies playing on a dedicated screen.

What's more, Couqley hosts Family Fun Weekends every Friday and Saturday, where kid's activities are run between one and three o'clock. Meaning weekends can be a fun occasion for everyone and lunches cut short by restless little ones can become a thing of the past. 

Frequent visitors to our Mummy Mornings  at Baby & Child, Malaak baby and childcare services joined the playdate with their trained child-care assistants. Expert babysitters, the team ensured that the kids all had a fabulous time while the mums took a well-deserved break. 

A highlight of the playdate was an appearance from magician Adrian Hurley who wowed our young crowd with tricks, jokes and some incredible balloon creations. 

Guests left with smiles on their faces and a Baby & Child gift bag. Baby & Child hold regular morning and afternoon events for UAE mums looking to socialise with like-minded parents with kids under four years.
