Kidz Zoom stands as a testament to the dreams of Karen Snead, a mother who worked passionately to erect the kid-friendly inflatable play place. Her daughter, Rashida Traywick, now takes charge of the open space, which houses inflated playscapes on which children cavort and decide just how many bags of candy belong in a 401(k). The yielding, bouncy structures beckon all manner of jumping and sliding, and a massive, inflatable throne can backdrop whimsical photos. A party room, where young ones might enjoy cake and pizza, can grant a reprieve between bouts of bouncing. Meanwhile, a toddler area is framed by a welcoming inflatable bunny and themed with inflatable snails and large mushroom caps.

Like any young member of a family, dogs crave attention and sometimes need supervision. The folks at Pets at Play put together a doggy day care center to keep pooches ensconced in affection while owners go about the necessities of life. From 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., they host hounds for play and naps while soothing music plays. They also board dogs over night in the event that families leave on a pet-free vacation. Owners can arrange for their canine companions to receive grooming treatments or behavioral training while in attendance. Pets at Play's crew also travels, making the same services available in the privacy of home for those who can't make it to the daycare center or fear that their dog might be the kid who spends all day sniffing others' inappropriately.
