All children dream of the day they’ll graduate college, ruthlessly climb the corporate ladder, and save enough money to leave it all behind and move into a utopia stocked with toys and pizza. Fulfill their lofty dreams a few years early with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get five full-day admissions to Toy Town Playcenter (up to a $40 value). The five admissions provided by each Groupon can be split with multiple children. Toy Town Playcenter hours are 9 a.m.–2 p.m. Monday through Friday. A single complimentary collectible stuff-it-yourself animal is included with each Groupon (accessories not included).
At Toy Town Playcenter, brimming child energy is dissipated over 2,000 air-conditioned square feet of make-believable playground areas for children 7 years old or younger. Toy Town sports eight playhouses (among them a grocery store, auto shop, and pizzeria), complete with dress-up clothes and toys, a tabletop railway, toy cars for driving around, and a castle bounce house. An available snack bar and café whips up pizza, soda, and juice (not covered by this Groupon). Adults can unwind with free WiFi, gleefully appreciating a few precious moments of relaxation while their loose-cannon toddlers are ordered by the chief to turn in their badges in the police-station playhouse. Toy Town is cleaned throughout the day and sanitized every evening, efficiently clearing the fun-filled terrain of juice spills, jelly residue, and molted skins.
Although Grandma’s house features a bevy of fun-filled activities such as scrapbook viewing and daily screenings of Wheel of Fortune, kids benefit more from a social environment where they can hone communication, cooperation, and bartering skills. Toy Town Playcenter gives children a fun, safe place to interact with peers and stay active and gives parents a much-needed breather.

When Toy Town Playcenter’s architects planned their air-conditioned, 2,000-square-foot town, they considered the interests of both parents and children. While tykes pedal down mock city streets and lament the price of milk at the miniature grocery store, parents can cruise free Wi-Fi and sip coffee from the snack bar. City planners also prize sanitation, enforcing a socks-only policy and scrubbing down all surfaces multiple times daily.
