The 1,500-square-foot storefront playroom, aimed at newborns through preschoolers, boasts a crawl-through tunnel, toy trucks, costumes for dress-up, a train table, DUPLO table, dollhouse, books, ethnically diverse dolls, rocking-horse-type riding toys and more.
The youngest babies get their own area, separated by a low wall. On the bigger-kid side of the divider, some of the train toys don't meet the toilet-paper-tube threshold, so (duh) keep an eye on your orally fixated infant. A communal table offers a great spot to serve snacks from home, or you can buy individual prepackaged items such as organic milk, water, juice, applesauce, etc. The bathroom has a potty seat, a stool and a changing table. Free coffee and wi-fi for the parents.
