An upscale, nurturing, fun, and friendly open-ended entertainment center for children (ages 9 months – 9 years) and their families. The center is designed with an open-ended play area and activities geared toward early to mid- childhood development in order to expand imagination, creativity, and fine and gross motor skills. Our mission is to foster family happiness and deeper connections through playtime between children and their parents in a screen-free zone.
