Kid's Play is such an amazing place! We had our son's 3rd birthday party here and everyone had a blast, including the parents! The staff are so accommodating and nice! Thank you to Emily and Bethany, ...who helped me book the party! They make it so easy! The museum is very clean, organized, and so much too do. I would recommend having a party here or just going back for a day of fun! Thank you all a Kid's Play! See More

Fantastic and affordable place to go! I have Children ranging from 11yrs, down to 2, and everyone gets excited to come here. It’s always amazingly clean and the environment is so bright and cheerful. ...The staff is beyond wonderful, always helpful and happy. I have been going for years, and some of the staff members have remarked on how the children have grown up right before their eyes. I had a chance to speak with a staff member today, Emily, who was very helpful and was able to point out some new additions since the last time I came. I love this place and can’t recommend it enough. See More

We brought our grandkids, age 4 and 2. They have visited Imagination and Kid City - KidsPlay is the best of two worlds. The activities are spread out and inviting. The “grocery store” was well stocke...d and presented a variety of products to check out. The “kitchen” was spacious and well equipped. There were many stations inviting non judgmental personal creativity. We were all sad to leave; we promised that we would return!!!! Suggestion: check with your local library for a Museum pass!!

I had to give 3 stars due to construction in progress. My 2 year old had fun running around and doing the activities. I feel like it’s lacking something special to set it apart from the other places. ...Staff was friendly. I would definitely come back and try again with the construction and new activities done. The price was fair. See More

My daughter is almost two years old and she absolutely loved this place. The music room and tree house was her favorite. Along with the Bubble machine and ball machine. I would highly recommend it!!!

I would give this place 5 stars since there is so much to do, it is very well kept and the staff was nice... however, this being the third time for me, every time I have come here with my toddler, an ...older kid (about 10 or 12) has knocked my toddler down and this time hit him when he tried to play on the same station. I know this is not your fault, as it is the parents of the children, who need to keep a closer eye on their kids... but do you think maybe you would consider certain stations for older kids? These older kids go into the toddler sections and I don't think it is fair for the small children to be trampled over and physically abused by children that are far too big to be there in the first place. Just a suggestion. See More

We are so fortunate to have a fun, safe and educational place in the northwest corner for our children to explore, play and learn. Clean and expanding. Can’t wait to see the new expansion space.

Recently had my sons birthday party here! Amazing! Beautiful party room, clean exhibits, kids had a blast.
A little pricey considering nothing was included like table clothes, paper good, ect.

A great place for children to explore their imaginations. The little one had a great time, which is as that matters!

My son is like the king of kidsplay, all the staff know him and love him (he is 2.5), he loves them,they always have some time to spend with him, and are always so helpful when I'm there with him on m...y own, I cant wait for them to expand, he will love it even more,if I could give more than 5 stars I would, staff and manager are fantastic, they always make my son feel important, and they always teach him new things everytime we go,I didn't even need to think twice about renewing our membership(renewed asap)
Love love love this place and of course all the staff, kidsplay wouldn't be as great if it didn't have this team of amazing, caring, friendly people

I thought it was just a great place to bring the children. It spurred their imagination at everything that was offered. I was at awe myself at some of what was in that amazing building.

My toddler girls LOVE the new expansion! Running up and down the ramp, playing with the blocks, and exploring all the new nooks and crannies. Even the older exhibits are made more exciting with the new layout!

The Groupon sage continues. So after the first business not excepting Groupon on a Thursday despite not having when I could have used it. Groupon said they would give me a $25 credit. Which really was... $12. So I had to use it in 24 hours. So I bought the Kidsplay pass.

While Groupon says I can use it Monday to Friday the facility is not open Mon or Tuesday.

So we tried to use it today Sunday. Nope Kidsplay doesn't accept it. So I said can I use it tomorrow or Tuesday. No we are closed.

So I figured ok I will pay $6.00 admission for the two kids. No its $18.00 because I have to pay. I said oh ok I don't want to come here I will leave the kids and go shopping or find a quite place to study. No that is not an option I have to pay as well. I said ok great what can I as an adult do here. Response it's really just for kids.

No wonder on a rainy Sunday there is only 1/2 dozen families here. It's also interesting that most only have one parent. Because having 2 parents and a kid will make the admission $18.00

I brought my 2 year old and my 4 year old and they both loved it! The staff was really nice, I don't usually see a whole team of caring staff at any place but they were all very attentive and friendl...y. I would of loved it more if the doors were monitored better or if they did some sort of parental check. Even chucky cheese has hand stamps with all the same number so someone can't leave with my kid, not to mention my 4 year old could probably just walk out the door because the doors aren't really watched very closely it seemed. But I always keep eyes on my kids like a hawk, which You really have to do here. But I still gave them 5 stars because the place was so much fun! See More

My 1.5 year old loved it! We went on a weekday afternoon so not too many bigger kids to bump into him.. so he got to run all over the place. Great rainy day activity for today ��

Just had my daughters 2nd birthday party here yesterday. The staff were wonderful and accommodating! One of the staff members even helped my husband take things into the car after our party. I especia...lly loved the fact that all of my guests could stay after our booked time to play more. Everyone had a great time and the kids, including my daughter were so busy we had trouble getting the children back in the party room for cake and presents. I do wish we had more than a half an hour for set up but I might have overplanned since we had a lot of food left over. Haha overall great experience and we will be signing up for a membership!

"To be self-driven, kids need to have a sense of control over their lives and are energetic about directing their lives in the direction they want to go." -William Stixrud, co-author of "The Self-Driven Child"

A new book warns parents: Stop micromanaging your kids. Think of yourself less as their boss, and more like a consultant.

Heidi spent years at the New England Center for Circus Acts. Heidi and Joel have performed extensively in Central and South America as well as in the US. Joel, also a capoeirista, beautifully infuses ground circus/juggling, unicycling, and aro into fluid movement. The duo performs throughout New England at corporate events, schools, and festivals.
