New Bricks Café Opens in Lausanne

The much-dreaded bise, the freezing northern wind that around this time of year takes hold of the entire Lac Léman region, is here again, making a visit to our favourite playground a very unappealing option for the little ones. But fear not, as a new Lego® and Duplo® Bricks Café has just opened in St-Sulpice (Lausanne), so we can keep our cheeky monkeys entertained and meet up with their little friends without freezing our […]

Playtime at the Ludotheque

I popped in last week with my Little Missy and did not come away empty […]

With 3 kids, I am always looking for new ideas of where to hold birthday parties so I imagine other expat parents might be in the same situation. If you’ve never been to a birthday party at Yatouland but would like to know what it’s like, here’s some photos I took whilst surrounded by a swarm […]

Geneva’s Firefighters Museum

Just when you think you have the whole city sussed and could navigate all its best child-friendly hideouts with your eyes closed, along comes an impressive new discovery in the shape of the Musée du Service d’incendie et de secours – Ville de Genève. To say that this is every little boy’s dream museum would be an understatement: my two little men could hardly contain their excitement as they climbed the […]
