Wow, what a delightful place for children. So much to do and see, everything is so thought through. Many different areas for kids to play, a full set up play kitchen, boat, chicken coop; someone has really put some thought and time into this place....More

We got off the ferry at Friday Harbor and my two daughters saw this drop off play place and asked to go in. We dropped them off for an hour and then when we returned they wanted to stay another hour. They absolutely loved it....More

An excellent addition to our family vacation! You can stay and play for 7.50 hourly or drop off $10/hr. Our kids 3 & 5 loved it and didn't want to leave and we enjoyed dinner across the street.

Excellent if you are traveling with children! Owner and staff were great. Extremely clean. Our daughter would go back daily if given the option. The detail of each area (kitchen, farm/ranch, boat, etc.) was awe inspiring. Truly fantastic place!
