We come up from the Valley and our grandchildren have enjoyed the Spot since they were 3, they are now almost 7 and still can spend hours there. They love creating "stuff" at the art table and building, and doing all the activities set up on tables. It is relatively small, a retail space at the mall. Really a way... More

This was a great, educational, fun way to spend a rainy afternoon. Our 5 year old granddaughter had a fabulous time. It also brought out the kids in us! We had as much fun as our granddaughter!

Kids of all ages will enjoy laughing, talking and learning as they visit each area. We were visiting from out of town and my child just loved it and was fully engaged in each activity. With how much we pay for things in our city, $3 per person is the ultimate bargain. Since it is run only by volunteers, there... More

Interesting concept, but only opened on the weekend. This is great for children to explore science, art, etc. The place is in the mall, so adults can do their shopping. The staff seems to be volunteers. I never see people in it, even on the weekend.

My 12 yo daughter and grandmother went here and had fun learning at each of the different stations. $3 per person to get in time is great for inexpensive fun and well worth doing again.

My three children (then 6, 4, 2) enjoy going here and playing with the toys and doing the activities. They definitely select toys that encourage children to use their minds and hands to manipulate the toys and learn while they do so. There were several different age appropriate spots...a Tot spot that my 2yo loved. My 6yo was very interested... More
