Within the multihued, pastel walls of Kidville’s indoor playland, tykes expand their minds, network with members of their peer group, and deplete their vast energy reserves. Babies, toddlers, and future adults 6 years old or younger get to choose three class sessions from a diverse selection of curricula developed by Kidville’s early-childhood-development gurus. Burgeoning Beethovens can swivel their hips, flex their sing-along muscles, and edit their massive music manuscripts during one of Kidville’s music and dance classes or enlist in one of the art classes to create a piece that captures their inner rage toward broccoli. Fun and fit gym classes let tots run, roll, and hover through gauntlets of plush blocks and spongy play mats. Most classes run for 45 minutes; patrons should check the schedule and reserve a spot ahead of time. Clasping hands and scampering legs can also roam freely through Kidville’s sprightly, indoor playground with 3 playspace passes, though all munchkins must be supervised by a parent, guardian, or trustworthy primate.
