First, my 5-year-old liked it. She didn't love it, she liked it. But she's not writing the review, I am, so here's my take. Basically, it is a collection of toy stores within a mini-mall with a play area on the top floor. Nothing more. Yes, there are lots of toys and a variety of items to buy and poke... More

This is just a collection of various toy stores and a slide for smaller kids in the middle of it. Nothing very exciting unless you are a kid who enjoys running across the stores.

The good - some cute shops and good toys - an awesome puppet collection and non-Disney toys, e.g. However, the prices are high. Worse, pay-to-ride sit-on-top rides and crane games abound - these lower my enjoyment of a family place. Yuck! Worst, the "adventure area" (2nd floor) is a nightmare of carnival amusement games (whack-a-mole type) that spit out tickets... More

Just a collection of small shops selling the same toys, clothes, and gimmicks you can find anywhere else. The indoor play area was expensive and small - my 5 and 7 yr old were bored after 5 minutes. If you have kids dont bother making the trip to Granville Island for this place alone.

Thought it would be fun for my two boys, ages 2 and 4, to experience the indoor playground. I found it overall a bit disappointing. The place is generally looking worn and tired, and could do with a renovation. The ball pit in the Adventure Zone indoor playground was in sore need of refilling with balls...not so much fun to...

This was a great place. Lots of options for kids and safe enough to let older children roam free. I loved it.

Really neat place to take kids. Cool shops full of interesting toys, clothes, costumes, books and other kid stuff. Lots of little rides for the kids. Also a slide/ball pit. A bit crazy with all the kids but lots of fun!

Now don't get me wrong, I do have two children who do like this place bit even they want to leave this place after 10 mins. Over priced, which im sure is due to the cost to lease the space and not because theyre selling anything really unique. Its dirty, the bathrooms are disgusting and garbage cans are full. To... More

It is a great market to shop for toys, many of them have shipping services too. But we went there not for shopping and it was disapointing. There is 1 place indoor for kids to play and it was filthy... Outside was nice but unorganized and garbage everywhere it was gross. Poor snack choices for hungry stomachs. The waterpark was... More

Amazing stores that makes you wanna get back to being a kid and just buy the whole place. I was specially taken with a marionette place that was just gorgeous! There's also a wonderful scrap material store with loads of rubber stamps and other goodies.
