"We were visiting Tahoe for a week and looking for things to do with my 2.5 y/o daughter. Went to the Open Play and she absolutely had a blast! The rooms were full of exciting toys, but not overly stimulating. Lots of cars including a nifty "roller coaster" that my daughter could push off of on her own. Big ball pit and little ball pit were both hits. The trampoline was great once she got used to the idea! There were also a ton of toys for imaginative play that she loved. We stayed for a little over an hour but could've easily passed more hours there. Totally worth the low cost.
Jen (the employee, not the owner by the same name) told us the place is under new management since February. Definitely worth another visit if you had been there prior to 2016." - Shiri D., Amherst, MA
"There's a new owner here now that has really brought this place back! My 3 year old begs me to take her here all the time. This is hands down her favorite place on earth! The owner & employees are super sweet. The place is clean, bright & so much fun! A tahoe must for kids 0-6." Lydia W., South Lake Tahoe
"My daughter loves this place. I can take her here during the day (she is 1 1/2) and she can play whatever her heart desires. She has a blast jumping and running and checking out the toys. There's a dress-up area and a ball pit and the toddlers just have a blast. They charge $12 for a drop in but they offer stamp cards as well if you decide to be a regular visitor. Good spot for little kids especially when the weather isn't nice." - Jennifer S., South Lake Tahoe
