All children dream of the day they’ll graduate college, ruthlessly climb the corporate ladder, and save enough money to leave it all behind and move into a utopia stocked with toys and pizza. Fulfill their lofty dreams a few years early with today’s Groupon. For $20, you get five full-day admissions (a $40 value) to Toy Town Playcenter in Ahwatukee. Customers may purchase one Groupon per child, and up to three per family.
At Toy Town Playcenter, brimming child energy is dissipated over 2,000 air-conditioned square feet of indoor play areas and activities. A make-believable playground for children 7 years old or younger, or adults de-aged down to 7 years old, Toy Town sports eight playhouses (among them a grocery store, auto shop, and pizzeria), complete with dress-up clothes and toys, a tabletop railway, toy cars for driving around, and a castle bounce house. An available snack bar and café whips up pizza, soda, juice, and more. Adults, meanwhile, can unwind with free WiFi, gleefully appreciating a few precious moments of relaxation while their loose-cannon toddlers are ordered by the chief to turn in their badges in the police-station playhouse. Toy Town is cleaned throughout the day and sanitized every evening, efficiently clearing the fun-filled terrain of juice spills, jelly residue, and molted skins.
Although Grandma’s house features a bevy of fun-filled activities such as scrapbook viewing and daily screenings of Wheel of Fortune, kids benefit more from a social environment where they can hone communication, cooperation, and bartering skills. Toy Town Playcenter gives children a fun, safe place to interact with peers and stay active, while giving parents a much-needed breather. Use today’s Groupon to Toy Town to appease the whole family without purchasing a hot-dog-shaped minivan or moving to Disney World.
Discerning parents on Judy's Book are mixed over the quality and variety of activities at Toy Town, but they all agree that it's a safe and clean place for kids. They give it three stars.
Toy Town Playcenter
When Toy Town Playcenter’s architects planned their air-conditioned, 2,000-square-foot town, they considered the interests of both parents and children. While tykes pedal down mock city streets and lament the price of milk at the miniature grocery store, parents can cruise free Wi-Fi and sip coffee from the snack bar. City planners also prize sanitation, enforcing a socks-only policy and scrubbing down all surfaces multiple times daily.
