I am the mother of two children. My daughter is 6 years old and my son 3. I believe there is nothing more beautiful than seeing how children slide through life with joy and ease and how they approach every given task and confront different people without prejudice or judgement.
And it was precisely this wonderful feeling that brought me to open a play island in Wollerau, where the children can be exactly how they are and are allowed to feel just as they feel in the moment. We do arts & crafts following a theme with the most diverse materials, we play together board games, we dance, we climb, we act out role-playing games, or even just simply eat and chat or read in the designated cozy corner.
As wonderful as it is to watch your children grow up and engage life, as parents, there may be some difficult days, and you may just wish for a little break. I wish myself sometimes that there was a place where I could bring my darlings to play just for a short while, without having to register them for fixed appointments two times a week. So that I wouldn’t have to bring them to every one of my appointments and, on a Saturday, I could also go with my husband or a friend to a wellness spa, shopping, skiing or even just read a book at home.
So, I had the chance to open my Tukan Spielinsel when the municipality of Wollerau built a new kindergarten in Roosstrasse 51 and left the space unused. The charm of the 70s still permeates these rooms and I am truly happy to be able to welcome so many children in the brand-new play paradise.
