The Coop just opened its doors December 1st of this year the latest indoor play park in the Southbay.
TWINKLE TWINKLE KIDS CAFÉ PROS
The obvious big difference is that Twinkle Twinkle Kids Café serves food and for $10 your kid plays for as long as you can take. Parenting is all about stamina. Ha ha ha. The kids can run around while parents eat food. The obstacle course indoors is nice and big. Unlike Adventureplex, there isn’t a minimum 2 hour, you can stay as long as you want.
Adults have to buy food and so you wind up spending on average $30 or more (including $10 entry fee for the kid).
Very large indoor and outdoor play areas, plus a new upstairs Toddler Town area for toddlers.
For $10 there’s a 2 hour max, so if you want to stay longer you need to pay extra.
The Coop is brand new and smaller than Adventureplex and Twinkle Twinkle Kids Café, but it’s close to home for me.
They offer free wi-fi and a large pool of plastic balls, plus 2 slides, an electronic game/dance floor, brain building cognitive puzzles, and magazines for parents. Coffee is allowed in the play area, but food needs to be eaten in the lobby area.
$12 for kids, parents need socks and socks are optional for kids.
It’s $12, which is more than Adventureplex and Twinkle Twinkle Kids Café. It’s also smaller. However, you can stay as long as you want.
Out of all three indoor play parks The Coop ends up being the winner, as it winds up being cheaper. There is also a coffee shop next door that offers discount coffee for those parents visiting The Coop.
There are other indoor play parks I haven’t gone to yet and I am sure are great as well. For me, The Coop is cozy and offers enough activities and stimuli for toddlers and kids.
