90th birthdays aren’t exactly the most exciting, unless of course it’s for MICKEY MOUSE. Our favourite Cartoon character is turning 90 and having the party of a lifetime at Sandton City’s Centre Court. Mickey The True Original SA Exhibition is an interactive pop-up that will give you a look at Mickey through the ages. It’s on until the 14 October and it’s free.

The Spring weather definitely calls for an outdoor event like the Jozi Family Movie Night – The outdoor movie night perfect for the whole family.

Yeesh! Fun for kids is a Kids indoor play and Activity centre located in Woodmead. They have a wide range of fun things to do for the kids in a safe and supervised environment. It’s the place that allows the adults to sit back and relax in their upmarket coffee bar, while the kids are taken care of by trained child minders in the play area. The kids get to have fun on the trampoline, the slides, jumping castle and soft play obstacles or they get to paint and cook, at paint pot or the chef’s corner. Yeesh is open Tuesday to Sunday and it’s a whole lot of fun for the kids. For more information, visit Yeesh.
