We are pleased to announce that the Metrocentre Sensory Backpacks are back!
We understand that for some people, shopping centres can be a stressful experience. Our sensory backpacks have an array of sensory toys to make shopping comfortable for you.
Our Sensory Backpacks are limited in availability and are on a first come first serve basis.
To hire out a backpack please go to the customer service desk in upper Platinum Mall, and lower Green Mall.
