“Perfect for little kids”
Reviewed December 10, 2013

Went here as a kid, brought my kids and looking forward to bringing my grand kids! So cool for little kids. Geared to toddlers and young kids. Don't miss the puppet show! Mini Disneyland. One word if you have young kids...GO

“A must see if you are into fairy tales”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

This is the place of real sugar plum fairies and not over commercialized hype. Where children can be themselves and adults can bask in their laughter. I love e way it is so quaint and innocent, as it was when it was built in the early 1950s. Set in a beautiful park and convenient to Bart.

“A toddlers dream!”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

Kids love this place and adults have great memories of when they went there. For the best value get a membership and bring a lunch with you on the weekends. I just send my husband off to fairyland and they have fun together for hours. The running encourages the much needed naps!

“I wish we took our kids when they were younger”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

We came here because of a groupon. I knew it was mean for younger kids, our younger son had fun but our older son didn't enjoy it as much. Which is why I wish we had taken them here when they wereboth a little younger.
The attractions are old, paint peeling off. Some just look really old and rickety. But you know what, the kids don't notice that kind of stuff, we do! So if we're excited and we have fun, guess what? They will too! And if you're taking them here, it probably means you're a n awesome parent looking for good family fun! Before visiting here, make sure you read tons of fairy tale stories and nursery rhymes, it'll make this world so muchmore alive for them. Enjoy :)
