Kids in Madrid

I'm travelling to Madrid with my two young ones (3 and 5 years old) - I know - nightmare...but, I have to meet my husband who's temporarily living in the city for business purposes. We'll be staying for an extended period - about 2 weeks - and I want to know how child-friendly the city is. Is there lots to do for Kids in Madrid - recreational areas, play places, zoos, etc...

Any advice would be much appreciated!

    The Spanish take their children everywhere ... to bars, restaurants and sometimes even to pubs.

So if the kids get bored of the Prado, you may find the following suggestions useful :-

    I don`t think it is a problem for two weeks with your kids, even in such crazy place like Madrid. Of course, there are plenty places for kids entertainment etc. Good luck
