Fun Buggies

Let's face it, shopping can be dull for little ones...but not at intu Lakeside. Here, you can collect a Fun Buggy to keep them entertained!

You'll find Fun Buggies for hire outside M&S on Level 2. These are miniature cars which are great for keeping the kids smiling while you shop. To hire one, head to the Customer Service Lounge by M&S on Level 2, and one of the team will give you a key to collect your chosen Fun Buggy from the hire point.

You can even hire a life size Playmobil fire engine or police car!
