Some adults have children so they have a socially acceptable reason to eat at novelty pizza arcades and see movies with Shreks in them. Put some fun in the oven with this kid-friendly Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $19 for five open-play passes (up to a $40 value)
- $75 for a 2-hour party package for up to 10 (a $150 value)
During regular open-play hours, youngsters can explore the shop’s possibility-filled play zone, whose walls are plastered with chalkboards and dry-erase boards, and the imaginative mini career center for forward-thinking children. For the party package, parents can bring refreshments or have Sweet Charlottes cater the event with homemade meals for an additional price. All napkins, paper plates, and utensils are included in the package, and open-play is available for all attendees. Birthdays include time to play, and children receive a juice box or bottled water, a snack, a trip to the gummi bar, and can create an art project at the center’s craft café.
The seeds of Sweet Charlottes were planted four years ago, when Molly O’Malley Pitman’s husband carved the mold for the first puzzle piece that would become a template for her business’s emblematic lollipops. There’s a hidden meaning behind those puzzle pops—when solved, they take the form of the universal symbol for autism awareness. Her imagination-sparking play center also serves a dual purpose as well. The shop’s craft café, mini career center, and abundance of candy make it a child’s dream come true, and a percentage of its proceeds benefit Autistic Services and similar organizations.
