A bit small, not much more exciting than toys at home. Good for a few hours away from home on a rainy afternoon. Also best for kids 3 and under.

Small but quaint, maybe about a 2 hour stay is good for your child to play with everything.

When I took my child's socks off when we got home, they were filthy black on the bottom. Also, I would expect the place to be much cleaner and have a better place for parent's to hang out. The women at the front desk was not very attentive. Probably will not go back.

While we were there, their foam velcro play structure (near the column by their front desk) fell over with 4 or more toddlers in it -- it crashed into the column. This structure doesn't seem safe, especially for more than one kid at a time. I think they should either remove it or put a sign up to warn parents to have their kids go on one at a time. Also, the woman working at the desk at the time just kinda looked with this "yikes" look on her face, but didn't say anything to the parents/caregivers involved -- that's concerning to me as well.

From Our Editors

As colorful and whimsical as its name suggests, Purple Monkey Playroom lets children from six months to five years scamper, scurry, and socialize throughout 1,500 square feet of toys, games, and playhouses. Adults, meanwhile, can watch from the sidelines while enjoying free coffee and tea along with ample WiFi. Here are some of the services that have earned Purple Monkey Playroom the Red Tricycle Award for multiple years running:

Parties

Purple Monkey Playroom's award-winning birthday party services accommodate up to 65 guests and cover planning, coordination, setup, and cleanup. All you need to do is show up and celebrate. Customizable packages range from the Basic Monkey to the King Kong, which includes photographer, face painters, an ice cream sundae bar, bubble machines, character appearances, and more.

Drop-Off Care

Purple Monkey partners with Chime by SitterCity to offer weekly drop-off care. The sitters are rigorously vetted. Really rigorously. In fact, only one in five makes the cut. It's harder than getting into Vassar.
