Due to 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 $3, you get one admission to Totter's Otterville (a $7.95 value), a children's entertainment emporium located in Covington. Buy up to four of today's deal and bring along numerous doe-eyed tykes for an afternoon of good times.
Totter's Otterville is a small indoor-outdoor village of 33 exhibits, rides, games, and more. All the attractions are designed with wee ones' enjoyment in mind, from the two full-sized indoor fire engines to an art studio, dance studio, and 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 sand pit in which to build elaborate, architecturally sound, and acoustically superior sand castles.
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 deal 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.

- We love Totter's and have had a yearly pass for as long as we've known about the place. My son never gets bored and is always finding something new to do or play with. I especially love that this place grows with the kids, from about 5 months on up! – punkflute
- We absolutely love taking our little guy to otterville! There is so much for him to do and you could really spend all day there. – kanzega
- My 2 year old LOVES this place! Great for a rainy day. – smearp20
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.
