Tamaki Maori Village - suitable for under 5's?

We are considering visiting the Tamaki Maori Village, but have 2 very young children (2 and 4yrs) and am wondering if it is a suitable experience for a young family, or if my kids are apt to just reek havoc and ruin what sounds like a great experience for everyone else? Can anyone speak to their experience there with very young kids?

I visited Tamaki in Nov. While there were no young children our night, I would think that your kids should be able to enjoy.

After the welcome powhiri you go into the forest where there is a replica village. You split into smaller groups and visit each whare (hut) where you learn about different aspects of maori traditional life. This is quite practical and everyone is able and encouraged to try games and activities.
