No. If he is anything like our young grandson he will enjoy the animals, the soft play and the little train. There is outdoor play too.

Yes you can. There is lovely picnic benches outside & when we went in October lots of families having lunch on them . You could leave your picnic in car till you have finished & then go & get it. Enjoy
