This is a new venue that just opened in July 2017 and I can tell that it will be very popular with the toddler and preschool set!

I went primarily to check it out for the blog and didn't expect my kids to like it very much because they are older. But I was pleasantly surprised that they had a blast playing here! We were there for about 90 minutes and no one had asked to leave. I had to finally prod them to leave because it had been a long day and I was tired. People were ordering Uncle Leo's Pizza next door and staying for dinner!

It costs $8 per child and adults are free. There is no time limit so you can stay and play as long as you like. They also sell 10 visit discount cards for $70 so that's a good deal if your kids like coming here.


 They have a gated area specifically for babies 


 They have a great train table which of course Nick loved


My daughter LOVED the grocery store. She loves cash registers so we played store for quite a while.


 They have several toy kitchens, baby dolls, strollers, and a nice doll house with accessories. 

 Parental dining area


 Big soft building blocks

 Pipe table (not something you see often!)






 The flower shop was another huge hit with my kids. My daughter pretended she was getting married and needed flowers. My son loved scanning them and running my credit card through the machine. Then she pretended she was planting the flowers by sticking them in the holes in the flower box and they even have watering cans!


 The restrooms and party room are at the back of the room.

  I think a party here would be great and the rates are very reasonable!

 The other huge hit was the Hot Wheels track. I've been to every open play in St. Louis and no one has a car track set up. Myseum has some track but it's not set up and ready to go on a table. My kids LOVED racing the cars around the track.

 They have a table with lights and a whole lot of magnatiles to build with. 



 My son remembered that he had this toy and loved played with it!





I love the whimsical paintings on the wall and they even have crayola crayon ceiling fans. It's a good sized space, not huge and not small, so you can sit down pretty much anywhere and see your kids and not have to chase them. You can't bring in outside food but they sell snacks and the pizzeria is next door. I think this is a great addition to St. Louis and am really glad they opened this playroom. I spoke to the owner and she plans on doing events on a regular basis, so keep your eyes open for that. I will have them all published on fun4stlkids.com so just check the calendar there.
