COVID Update for Opening the Playhouse:

Our Toy Store will be open to the public on Friday, May 22 at 10 am. 

The Playhouse will be temporarily closed to the public.  We are anxious to announce when we will be fully re-open when it's safe. 

We wish everyone a safe, healthy and happy next few weeks as we get through this delicate  time.


If you have an event or birthday party scheduled during the month of  May,  we will be reaching out to you with options for rescheduling, refunds or toy credit options.

We ARE accepting birthday party reservations for June 2020 and beyond.

If you are a current member, we will be honoring your membership with extended expiration dates.

Can we bring  our own food for my child's Birthday Party?

YES~ We only ask that you do NOT bring anything with NUTS as some children in the play area may suffer from allergies.

Is the Playhouse area cleaned and sanitized daily?

YES~ we clean and sanitize ALL areas and toys daily with a certified safe disinfectant used in most schools.

If My Child is Sick, can I bring them to play?

No~ for the safety of others, please refrain from visiting the Playhouse if you or your child is sick, running a fever or showing any signs of cold symptoms.  We would love to play with everyone, every day BUT, we want to create a safe and healthy environment for play for ALL.  We hope your child feels better soon and will be feeling well enough to come and play when they are feeling better.
