Ball pits provide a welcoming home for inquisitive tots, athletic youngsters, and gumballs that have grown too large to feed. Make a splash with today's Groupon: for $20, children 1–8 years old get a six-visit multiple visit card to Balls of Fun in Mississauga (a $44.25 value). Children ages 0–12 months are free when accompanied by older sibling; there is an additional fee for children ages 9–12 years old.
Balls of Fun alights children's curiosities with gym equipment and a copious number of play balls in a 7,000-square-foot facility that entertains while aiming to sharpen ball skills. Supervised by parents, besocked young ones whoosh down one of five slides, including a 20-foot tunnel, and play on a duo of soft and colourful structures that can double as lecterns from which to debate the merits of hide-and-seek. A “big kid” gym allows for kids to clamber up a three-level play structure, and the baby and toddler area engages tykes with gym equipment and spherical diversions of all sizes. On the first Monday of every month, Balls of Fun rotates the gym’s theme to give kids new play challenges, prompt creativity, and remind children that all reality is mutable. With an emphasis on cleanliness and safety, children on play dates and in daycare groups and school outings can take on the play space’s recreational adventures while parents supervise or play along.
