The children are often very ill and do not have a chance to leave the centre during their stay which can be for 6 months. They do not have any contact with their families so it is really important to make their stay as comfortable, enjoyable and fun as possible.
The hospital recognises the importance of play within rehabilitation and sees this new space as a tool to aid the children’s recovery. Incorporating the amazing brands of LEGOLAND Discovery Centre and SEA LIFE, we have brought the Merlin Magic to the children at the centre that they would otherwise not get to experience.
Wolfgang Mertens, Deputy Head of Friedensdorf, was pleased with the design of the play area: “We have been using this room for about 40 years now and have never seen it this beautiful – I’d like to have it in my house, too! It is really child friendly and they deserve to be looked after / taken care of. I am excited to see their faces!”
