Malaysia's First Parenting Family Park with Retail Outlets
At The Parenthood, we offer quality bonding, experiential and progressive learning between parents and their babies, toddlers and kids, from age 1 – 12. Priding ourselves as the first parenting concept family park in Malaysia that provides services on education & play, shopping, relaxation & leisure, and dining, all set in a London Street-themed Family Park, we aim to assure you that parenting life can be a docile and a remarkable journey, while fulfilling all your parental needs at the same time.
Think shopping and picking up essentials from a variety of brands suited to your child’s needs, signing your child up for educational workshops or a fun playtime session at My Kingdom playground, while you can get pampered at the beauty salon (that offers kids services too!), drop by the post-natal slimming centre or dine at the café – it’s fun for the parent and child to enjoy together, all under one roof.
The Parenthood is the ideal place for groups of mothers to meet for their children’s play dates – or even plan and do up a birthday party. Special school holiday programmes that stimulate, cultivate and promote creativity to make learning fun and exciting, will also take place at the store throughout the year.
“We want parents to leave with the feeling they’ve provided their children with high-quality, age-appropriate experiential learning. The wholesome hands-on aspect really brings kids and parents together in a unique shared experience.”, says Leroy Lee, CEO of The Parenthood.
The Parenthood at Sunway Putra Mall will serve as a blueprint for its upcoming megastore located at Sunway Pyramid, that is slated to open in April 2016.
The Parenthood is Malaysia’s first one-stop parenting concept based on a London Street themed indoor family park that offers a comprehensive range of products and services catering to both the needs of parents’ and children alike.
Following the successful grand launching of its first family park, covering 16,000 sq ft in Sunway Putra Mall on December 3, 2015 where RM3 million has been invested to house 33 retail outlets and over 100 brands, this year The Parenthood will launch yet another family park at the new wing of the Sunway Pyramid Shopping Mall in Petaling Jaya this year and it will be on a much bigger scale.
