5 star Review for son’s Birthday Party:

We had our son’s birthday Learning Express of Bedford, MA - Toy Store and Play Center and it was a blast!...

Jeannie & Sonya did an amazing job planning this event. Our son wanted a “dinosaur” themed party, so they provided us with many ideas. We had great communication via phone and email from the beginning till the day of the party. Every detail from the colors, bags and catering options was superb!

We requested a traditional/cultural game and Learning Express Bedford accomodated our request.

We had 3 hours of absolute fun! The entire staff was polite, helpful and cheerful in every way! Our guests (parents and kids) commented how amazing the clean the space was, the organized activites, and what an awesome party we had!

The split time in downtown play was perfect for our guests who arrived late and could experience everything!

The party room activity of adopting a dinosaur was so much fun! We had food catered for the kids and parents by Prince Cafe.

The private gym was a hit lead by Brian , Kyle and Kaitlin. They gathered the kids to enjoy singing, dancing, building a fort, rock climbing, playing in gym, having a snow ball fight and engaging infants, kids and parents in every way!

Thank you to everyone at Learning Express Bedford for making this a memorable birthday for our son and family!

Highly recommend having a birthday party here!!!!

Amazing. I took my son for the first time this past weekend we ended up being the for over 4 hours. My son first tried out almost every toy in the store, then he took pic with the characters ( Paw Pat...rol and Trolls ), then he spent the rest of the time ha ing a blast in the play area. When we were in the car going home he would not stop thanking me for taking him to the " Fun Place".
I also was very satisfied with the costumer service. They helped me hide the Easter presents I was buying that I did not want my son to see. I wish I remembered the name of the women that helped me pick out the Easter bucket for my son and then personalized it by hand writing his name on the bucket. It came out so good.
I have already talked multiple people into shopping here and to think about having their childrens birthday parties here. My son is already set that he wants his next Birthday party here and it's not till Dec. I will be back very soon ����

I finally got to see for myself what all the buzz was about from my sisters speaking so highly of this place for their kids. My niece had her birthday party here and it was perfect for not only the ki...ds but parents too! Just enough space and entertainment for them to play and enjoy themselves without the parents having to worry. Everyone who worked there was so hands on including Barbara and Beverly who were present during the whole party and making sure everyone was fed and comfortable. It says a lot when staff are happy to serve and with a smile no matter what kind of establishment. Liz was there til the very end to see everyone on the way out and make sure everyone left happy! Great job! See More

I love to go here with the twins. The staff is always very friendly and helpful. There are plenty of activities every week for every age. The twins are 3 years old and can play here for hours. I want say to the staff, thank you for doing a awesome job and make every time a magical time for the kids to come and play! See More

The play area is great, but it's over priced. They should not charge for an extra adult, families typically go out together on the weekends, especially if both parents work full time during the week. ...I've never heard of a play place doing this. See More

We visit Learning Express frequently for open play and also hosted our daughter’s 3rd birthday party here. The staff were outstanding and made every effort to ensure that we did not lift a finger! The... parents and children absolutely loved the craft and party favors. The play space is very clean and provides opportunities for different types of play. Highly recommend Learning Express for birthdays and open play! See More

The kids had a ton of fun. So much to do, very clean, easy to keep an eye on the kids. GREAT for imaginative play, and self directed play. Plenty of parking, huge gift store. I highly recommend.

Let me preface this by saying my kids had a wonderful time here. It is an incredibly well-designed play space that is fun, clean and stocked with a wide assortment of toys and inspired, creative play ...areas.

My one complaint is with regards to their "no shoes/socks-only" policy. I LOVE this policy; shoes contain a lot of contaminants and germs, so I am totally onboard anytime a play space has this rule. When we arrived, I was unaware of this policy so did not have any socks. Luckily they have some you can purchase. However, I pointed out to the girl at the desk that out of the other approximately 10 parents and kids already there, only two had socks on. She nicely reinforced that this is their policy and that she would talk with the other people about removing their shoes and donning socks.

However, for the two hours that we were there, only about half the people that came in after us had socks. The others were either barefoot or had shoes (the majority). I felt like some people got preferential treatment in this area and this is frustrating.

This policy is really only useful if everyone is required to wear socks or, at the very least, remove their shoes. And this includes staff members who were ALL wearing their shoes in the play area (one male staff member who
I believe was facilitating one of the classes had removed them by the very end). Either make everyone remove their shoes or don't make anyone do it.

We will be going back because my kids enjoyed it so much, at which point I hope this policy is better enforced so people aren't forced to unfairly and unnecessarily spend their money.

This store is beautiful, the selection is incredible, and the staff is so kind and helpful. We came in to check out a craft activity, and my kids had a blast. I took one star off of my rating becaus...e the cost of the play space is prohibitively expensive. For my three kids and I to purchase a one-day pass, it would cost $50! No sibling or twin discount on one-day passes. While the space is incredible, we will stick with our local place that charges $15 per day. See More

When your kid is running wild trying to steal some other child's Peppa Pig doll restrain her. When said child hits the Peppa Pig dolls owner in the nose causing a bloody nose do not hide. Ask your ch...ild to apologize to her victim and explain to your child why it is not proper acceptable conduct. See More

Amazing play space highly recommended. We went in for a character visit and spent the whole day! As a preschool teacher I was quite impressed with the type of toys they had out. Especially the waterpl...ay on the patio! The walk up loft slide is the space of childhood dreams! My husband and I planned to stop in after a very busy morning where we hadn't even eaten yet. Bought a snack, some fancy (nonalcoholic) drinks, and stayed for the day! My two-year-old son was fast asleep almost before we even hit the car. It was a GREAT family day. See More

I took my granddaughter for the first time, I thought it was excellent, my granddaughter absolutely loved it. We will be going back & I will be taking my grandson also. Staff were all very informative... & courteous , the place is very clean & people in there were cleaning continuously washing something down the children had played on, the bathrooms were clean, I loved how u got a band & u could play 10am till 6 pm. You could leave & in the plaza they had different stores, u could go to subway for lunch then come back in, they do sell snacks at the learning express. And on certain days children also get to do a craft that is free. It is $15 for one child but I pay $12 at BBKidz & I think there was so much more to do here well worth the extra $3. See More

I live in town and so far have been nothing but impressed. We did the play area twice on days when they had an event so it was discounted (it's a bit pricey when paying full price though so not sure ...we'd go too much) and we attended a birthday party there, and I've been there for shopping numerous times! Nothing but impressed with the place, and the staff! The only thing that would make it better is if the playspace was $10 per child.. or if you do pay $15 for your first child that the second and/or third is less ($5 each), family max of $25 something like that.

Went to the grand opening on Sat 9/24 to check out the space and for the Queen Else & Princess Anna sing along. Yes, it is a little pricey, but it is an extremely well though out play space - offerin...g diferent imaginative play areas, an indoor slide, a separate infant area and a gymnastic room for more physically active play. I like that 90% of the space allows you to be able to see your kids - so I was able to hang with my baby in the baby spot while my 4 year old played in the rest of the space. The only real issues I had were with the toy store - a lot of ride on toys that biggers kids were using in spite of the crowds (which made it trickier to navigate with two small children) and there was no clear delineation for where the check out lines were, so I ended up getting cut in line while I was waiting for a cashier to open. But I'm sure it was all because it was the grand opening weekend and it will not deter me from visiting in the future. The staff is all super friendly, and part of the reason why we will definite be back. See More

Learning Express is everything you want your neighborhood toy store to be. We are so lucky to have this store in our community!

I took my son to their Grand Opening last weekend and I was very impressed. Learning Express Play is unlike any other indoor play center I've been in (and that's a wonderful thing) we played in the gr...ocery store and with the train tracks for about an hour and I look forward to going back with him to check out all the other great rooms (gym, building area, vet, diner, dress up, etc). I will definitely try out one of the classes too. It's nice to have a place to bring my son where he can use his imagination and creativity. See More

Mommy heaven! I love that this place has something for my 8 month old and also for my five year old. Most places cater to a certain age group. Both kids were happy, unique baby toys, excellent learnin...g spaces for my older child, very friendly staff with kids, and items were constantly being cleaned by staff during the five hrs we were there this week. Highly recommend and can't wait to go back! See More
