Absolutely recommend!
Feb 2020
My daughter recently had her fourth birthday party here, and it was the best experience! The place is so clean, so big, and SO fun for young kids. My daughter and her friends had an absolute blast with the baby/stroller selection, doll hair salon, market, and little house areas. This place is truly the cutest.
Aside from that, working with Larine was amazing. She organized and set up everything, and pays such attention to detail. I dropped off my decorations and she and her staff completely set up everything and made it look absolutely beautiful. From start to finish, everything ran so smoothly, and I could sit back and relax and actually enjoy the party. If you want a stress-free, super fun birthday party for your young child, this is the spot for you!

A fun time for play or party!
Mar 2019 • Family
I have been here several times with my daughter and nephew and they've had a blast each time.

I decided to have my daughter's 3rd birthday party here January 2019 and EVERYONE HAD A BLAST. Adults and children. In fact, my daughter's friends say they want to go to her birthday again.

The owner is superior in her customer service! The birthday was organized, fun, and they did a beautiful job decorating and making my daughter's birthday super special. The best part was that I barely had to do anything, simply bring in party goods and they took care of everything. It was a stress-free way to celebrate in a super clean environment. I highly recommend The Big Playhouse!!!

3rd Birthday Party was Perfect!
Feb 2019 • Family
I can’t say enough about how impressed I was after hosting our twins 3rd birthday party at the big playhouse. They were so organized, the facility was so clean, and every guest commented at how great the venue was. There is toys for boys and girls, and enough rooms in the town that no one was bored! They took care of ordering pizza for the party, everything that I needed to supply was given to me well ahead of time. I appreciated having a very detailed list of what I needed to bring so that nothing was forgotten in the chaos on the day of the party. My twins absolutely loved it!! They can’t wait to go back for open play.

It Should Say Girls Only
Jul 2017 • Family
This is a very expensive afternoon and just not worth entrance if you have a boy with you. Very heavy pink, dolls, princesses. We will not be going back.

I'm so sorry you felt that way. We cater to children 13mos to 6years only. Our entrance in the space is Lavender, Yellow and Pink on the main side which includes a Nursery, Cafe, Doctor Office, Salon, Enchanted Loft and a Grocery Store (which by the way all the children enjoy). On the Right side of the space the colors are Deep Red, Deep Blue, Deep Yellow, Construction Orange. In this area is a Barn, Cars and Trains(Speedway) and A Construction Site(which by the way all the children enjoy). There's a Village which also have soft and strong colors, there is dress-up for boys and girls, a sitting area, and a deep red kitchen area(which by the way all the children enjoy). Our facility is a Gender Neutral Space. THE BIG PLAYHOUSE is a community atmosphere. In any case I just want to make sure the space is described properly. Have a great day!

My Kids Love The Big Playhouse
Apr 2017 • Family
My children ages (1 and 3) love this place and so do I. Not only do they have different theme rooms for pretend play, and everything is clean but the owner and staff are great. We go to the character events once a month and my kids always look forward to visiting the Big Playhouse. Some people complain about the no shoe policy but that's how you keep germs and pathogens away from the kids. Furthermore, they have brand new socks for sell right at the welcome counter. I highly recommend the Big Playhouse and plan to celebrate my kids birthdays there.

The Big Play House is the perfect place for a birthday party!!
Feb 2017 • Family
My daughter's 5th birthday party at the BIG Play House was the BEST Birthday party ever! The kids had a wonderful time playing in all of the rooms and the adults were able to relax on the adult side knowing that the kids were well take care of! We had kids at the party ranging from 1 years old to 6 years old and they all had a great time! Larine, the owner, and her staff worked tirelessly to execute the most beautiful princess party for my daughter. They did not skip a detail and took the stress out of birthday party planning. On the day of the party everything was seamless and the staff was so attentive to all of my guests! They even provided complimentary coffee to the adults. So many of our guests said they plan to have their child's next party at The Big Play House! Larine was so nice to all the kids and adults, by the time we left the party my daughter referred to her as "Auntie Larine and gave her a huge hug!" I would be remiss if I didn't mention how immaculately clean this place is. So much better than the germ filled play zones/bounce houses. Thank you, Big Play House for making my daughter's 5th birthday so memorable. Jenay G., Teaneck, NJ

Amazing Indoor Play Place for Small Children
Dec 2016 • Family
I've taken my daughter here on a few occasions for open play and mini camp days and she has always enjoyed her experience. As a parent, I am always impressed by the high levels of cleanliness and organization. Because of these reasons, we decided to have my daughter's fourth birthday party here. I cannot give a stronger review or recommendation for this place. The staff was extremely helpful, attentive and accommodating. They set up everything for us and all we had to do was to show up ready to party. We had the entire venue to ourselves. Everything was fantastic and the party was amazing. I highly recommend this establishment

Don't bother
Jan 2016 • Family
Place is nice as its really a big Playhouse! They serve coffee for parents which is great but what really turned me off was you are not allowed to take pictures of the surroundings to have a memory of the place or even recommend to others. Which is unfortunate because usually word of mouth is a great way to market especially if the experience was great. And when it gets closer to ending your day they literally blockade everyone to a small space like a herd of cattle and you are unable to roam free. In conclusion look for another place where you and your child can both enjoy!

I really don't mind reviews if they are true and this one is not. First of all there are many images of THE BIG PLAYHOUSE out on the web taken by many families. But if you are taking images of just the empty rooms and the signage, it seems a little strange. We have similar situations where people came in and scan the entire space with no children in the images at all. In our waiver it clearly states no images without children in it. The Parties are usually 2 hours unless the family hosting request more time. As far as herding people, unlike most play centers, we have the parents/adults eat while the children are playing for an hour or more in THE BIG PLAYHOUSE Gallery. During this time we have a full staff taking care of whatever the families need. This way the adults do not feel rushed and they can really visit with each other. When the time comes to take care of kids (the last 30 minutes of the party), which typically takes about 15 minutes for food and 15 minutes for cake, the adults are usually done eating. During that time we have all the families join us in the Party Suite area, which can be tight based on how many adults are invited to the party. There is another space next to the party suite for overflow of adults. During this time the entire Play areas are shut down for cleaning. Also this will let the children know that the party is over once they are done in the party suite, unless the hosting family request more play time in advance. Once the children are finished, all the kids are invited to join us in the Barnyard for a group picture. Now the party is over, and the families are instructed on where they are to exit the building. I'm not sure what Bernardo A was expecting, but when the party is over usually you are required to leave the building. Which does create a large group of people exiting all at once.

We had fun. ..
Sep 2015 • Family
So yes we did have fun. .but I was also disappointed. First of all, there are no cars or trucks to borrow. .just baby dolls and carriages. The puppets in the barnyard were rather dirty and discolored. The registers and tools didn't have enough battery power and tool accessories were missing). I feel the over all maintenance and up keep of all the toys has fallen by the way side.
