Because of their small hands, children can't grasp the steering wheel to drive to work, fit into proper-sized wedding rings, or seize control of their own destiny. Give the kids a taste of safe autonomy with today's deal: for $18, you get four admissions plus $5 worth of fare at Totter's Otterville, a children's entertainment emporium in Covington (a $36.80 value). This Groupon may also be used as $36 toward a birthday-party package.
Totter's Otterville is a small indoor-outdoor village of 33 exhibits, rides, games, and more. All attractions are designed with wee ones' enjoyment in mind, from the Thomas the Tank Engine train room to an art studio, a dance studio, and a flower shop. The newly remodeled ball pit and climber room at Otterville allow children to climb the highest mast, peer off into the illusory sunset, and plunge into a sea of circular objects to swim amongst their imaginary otter brethren. Outdoor activities include a fishing pond, a maze, a water-spray play zone, a trolley ride, and a dinosaur-dig sand pit in which to discover elaborate, architecturally sound, and acoustically superior dinosaur bones. Kids can fuel up at the fully stocked café, filling pint-sized tanks with pizza by the slice ($1.89), sub sandwiches ($3.99–$4.59), and tasty treats such as the jumbo pretzel with cheese ($2.99).
Otterville is an extension of the now-closed Johnny's Toys, an independently owned toy shop that helped to fill the hands and fuel the imaginations of toy-deprived children for more than 60 years. Today's Groupon gives lucky broods the chance to burn off boredom in a fun adventure-land while saving parents from a stressful day of feverish, desperate tap dancing.
Totter's Otterville emulates a friendly village filled with vast exhibits dedicated to educational entertainment. Children can frolic within the train room, which hosts two Thomas the Tank Engine tables and a road-map carpet, or waddle to a live-performance area where staff members present daily shows involving puppets, story time, and tales of the tooth fairy's unhealthy obsession with small-size teeth. Do-it-yourself face painting encourages creative portraiture, and a construction zone encourages playing with giant trucks and a remodeled ball pit and climber area soaks up excess energy and teaches valuable lessons to children with loose car keys. Additionally, a café serves pizzas, wraps, salads, and a variety of healthful snacks.
