Owned by local parents and former fashion-world execs Katja Douedari and her husband, Wade Groom, this Greenpoint center is a must-visit for kids ages five and under. The littlest guests can head to the "quiet area," which is filled with soft play structures, mini hammocks and stuffed animals; it's also fully padded, so you don't have to worry about new walkers getting hurt. Toddlers and preschoolers will want to check out the farmers' market (complete with fake fruit and veggies), a diner with a pretend kitchen and a play structure inspired by Brooklyn brownstone stoops. The play spot hosts a variety of classes—everything from music and art to dance and movement—throughout the year. Ages 6 months to 5 years.
