A lazy overcast Sunday in Melbourne was anything but lazy on 15 May 2022 when BATMAN made a much anticipated appearance at the popular Lollipop’s Children’s Playland in Noble Park.

Naturally, the Toorak Times commissioned our head photographer and respected reporter, Lord Murray Schoorman to head down to the south eastern suburb and meet with the infamous BATMAN!

Upon arrival, the first thing he noticed was the centre’s carpark was at capacity with vehicle doors swinging wide open and hundreds of children being unloaded and ushered into the playland. The air was buzzing with excitement and children’s chatter as they all scampered inside rushing to what they believed was going to be the best vantage point to catch a glimpse of the heroic character.

BATMAN arrived at around 12noon and took time to meet with each and everyone of the children that were there.

So much excitement surrounded the entire day!

Their core focus is on Safety, Security, Cleanliness & Fun. They are the only indoor Playland in Australia to use a security wristband system allowing their staff to check that children are leaving with the correct adult, before they exit the staff operated security gates.
