Boobaloo Kiddy Cabs are also available to hire from Shopmobility in Centre West, to help make shopping more fun for little ones (and a more enjoyable experience for you!).
There are five themes to choose from, including fireman, policeman or princess. Hire costs £2.50 for the first hour and £1.00 for every half hour (or part half hour) after that.
