A bright-yellow biplane soars through the sky, performs barrel rolls, and loops into the clouds—all while staying 10 inches above the ground. Across Imagine: Play's rooms and halls, a treasure trove of toy vehicles and themed areas lets children stretch their imaginations. Each pintsize visitor can transform into the captain of a 20-foot tugboat, conduct a 12-foot blue locomotive, or plunge down a bounce house's slides. Elsewhere, 50 puppets act out plays, and a 20-foot-long chalkboard hallway transforms into whatever scene springs from kids' minds. Imagine: Play's creators built each of these areas with low walls, which allow parents to keep an eye on kids from nearby picnic tables. The staff members' creativity also stretches to themed upstairs party rooms. Here, they hang colorful backdrops that can teleport guests into a jungle, a tropical beach, or a medieval-castle scene.
Oregon Dream Ponies sits surrounded by hillside vineyards and orchards that pose as a serene backdrop for pony rides, horse rides, and special events. The roster includes ponies of varied sizes and ages that ensure kids of all ages can ride comfortably and confidently. While visiting the ranch, children as young as two years old learn how to interact with ponies, how they're groomed, and what they eat. Pony rides hand-led by staff members either at the ranch or during on-location pony parties give children a supervised opportunity to learn to ride. Other sessions allow children to guide ponies through a series of obstacles, from crossing a bridge to trotting over logs to solving complex algebraic equations.
When Steven Melton cleans a carpet, he doesn’t spray, vacuum, and run. Instead, he works each carpet fiber through seven steps of cleaning designed to remove soil, banish stains, and leave carpets with a surprisingly short drying time. He utilizes non-toxic, eco-friendly cleaning solutions in tandem with a rotating brush agitator and High-Flow extractor before carefully spotting any missed spots or still-kicking stains. A post-cleaning grooming session accelerates drying time as well as the wagging of the carpet’s tail.
