On a cold day, this is a great place to take kids 10 and under! There are chairs for the adults to relax in while the kids enjoy all of the fun. Discounts for grandparents!

I was a kid when I came here. had fun learning about the area and playing. My grandparents and parents took me here. Visit here back in 1994 or 1995.

We had a wonderful time. There was a great area to bring in food and treats. Tables and chairs were set up for adults and children alike. They did crafts, had play time in the museum, hit a pinata and had cake and juice boxes. I reccommend holding a birthday party here.

Our 14 month old is used to playing in settings where he's safe and allowed to touch things, but our vacation rental has hazards everywhere and is not child-proofed. As a result, his whole vacation is being moved away from interesting things, being told no, and being banned from dangerous rooms. SO, this was definitely on our list to let... More

I spent several hours here with my 19-month old. She loved it. Lots of hand-on activities from dress-up to blocks to trains and more. It is small so it can get crowded easily. It is also a little pricey - especially if you come with more than one adult. I recommend it for kids 5 and under. Older kids would... More

We showed up with 5 under six at 9:55. It opened at 10:00. It was at capacity by 10:30. I am sure that on. Rainy days like today they wish they had 6 times the space. So yes very small. But everyone seemed to have fun.

As my family toured the OBX on our last day of vaca, we came across 'Children at Play'. We had been doing a lot of activities that included a lot of "don'ts", and wanted to be able to provide the kids with some "DO's". Children at Play' provided my kids this opportunity!. They really enjoyed the experience of fishing from... More

We set out from Corolla on a rainy day to get to the Aquarium, but when it took us an hour to just get to Kitty Hawk, due to traffic, we ended up seeing Children at Play along the road and decided to check it out. I have 4 kids, ages 9,7,5,2.5 and we were with friends who had a... More

We took our 19 month old here. She had a great time. It's not huge or super involved but a good way to kill a few hours. We will be back!

We have a 9 month old and are vacationing in the Outer Banks. It was in the upper 90s today so the beach during daytime hours was not possible. We had kind of run out of things to do when we discovered this place and it ended up saving our butts. It's a little pricey because you have to pay... More
