Kolkata, Sep 6 (IBNS): Stone Paper Scissors, a children’s play-zone recently inaugurated in Kolkata, takes its name from the eponymous game but gives a special meaning to the concept.
Located in Salt Lake, in the eastern fringe of Kolkata, the play-zone inauguration was attended by models Jessica Gomes Surana, Neeraj Surana and Nicola Gomes, along with their kids, Vivaan (5 years old) and Kaira (3 years), and Nyasa (6 years) .
Said Jessica Gomes Surana, “The place is so bright and there is something for both my kids. I love the vibe, and Kolkata indeed needed a place like this. I look forward to coming here now, and hosting parties for Vivaan and Kaira.”
Stone Paper Scissors not only aims to encourage children to indulge in physical activities but also to participate in games and hobbies that will be helpful for their growth.
Stone Paper Scissors The play-zone also includes salon services and a kids-friendly café.
Stone Paper Scissors has been conceptualised by partners Abhishek Goyal, an MBA graduate from MDI, Gurgaon, who runs a Toddler School; Kavita Agarwal, an MBA graduate who is actively involved in organizing and hosting various events for kids; and Khushboo Jain, a Chartered Financial Analyst from ICFAI.
According to the entrepreneurs, there is something for all age groups, from toddlers to teenagers (upto 16 years).
Activities include a Toddler Soft Play Gymnasium, Baby Bungee, Soft Slides, Ball pool, Trampolines, and Crawl Tunnel.
For the more adventurous kids, there is an 18-ft indoor Rock Climbing wall and Eastern India’s first Aerial Rope Walk and Spider-Web Climb.
The salon focuses on the child’s health and safety. The products used are chemical- and paraben-free and the staff has been specially trained to handle the little ones, the organisers said.
The play-zone has a separate hobby centre where they aim to conduct regular workshops, to give the children easy access to learning various activities. Currently, they conduct pottery workshops, canvas painting, craft activities, and origami classes.
The hobby centre can also double up as a banquet space for private parties.
The entire play-zone can be booked for a complete spa and adventure zone birthday party as well, said the organisers.
The cafe serves two menus; one for the parents and one for the little ones.
According to the owners of SPS, the concept has been developed on the idea where ‘stone’ represents the adventurous section, ‘paper’ is the play area and the creative zone, while ‘scissors’ is the grooming section, including the organic salon.
