$99 for Eight Weeks of Music, Motion, and Crafts Classes ($250 Value)
With their parents, kids aged 1–4 burn energy by moving to the beat and sit down for craft activities. Classes meet on Monday mornings for eight weeks starting January 14; there is no class on February 18. As an added bonus, class participants are entitled to free admission after class to Kin-R-Gee play area.
The beaming, barky face of 16-foot-high Trevor the Tree greets youngsters as they scamper into Kin-R-Gee's storybook-themed play structure. After clambering through tubes and obstacle courses, tykes can return to terra firma by racing their playmates down a two-storey projection waterfall slide. Elsewhere, toddlers can explore the Three Bears Garden and Sprouts Patch, an area full of age appropriate treats like toy cars, building blocks, and action figures.
In between sliding and block building sessions, kids can refuel with tasty treats at Kin-R-Gee Café, where parents can likewise lounge with a latte while keeping an eye on their whippersnappers in the play area. Parents also barely move a muscle during Kin-R-Gee birthday parties, whose packages and supplies—built around themes such as create your own teddy bear and create your own surveillance cameras for teddy poachers—ensure a stress-free celebration. Along with open playing and partying, Kin-R-Gee educates children with a wealth of classes and programs geared toward enriching tots aged two-and-a-half to six through such activities as sports instruction and day camp.
