Our daughter is now 18 months, and she first went at 15 months. First we were in a < 3 years part with balls / slide / lots of room to roam around area. Our daughter really loved it...until...she discovered the water area! There is a totally amazing section with flowing water & fountains with loads of brightly coloured plastic balls all over the place. She was so happy and having fun - we were in there for almost 2 hours. What a joy to see her having so much fun. Anyway - there's also a section deigned for older kids that's a bit less interesting....however overall it's a great place.
Only negative is that it's really expensive. ($15 per person including kids over 1 year)

Took my preschool and toddler daughters here. Outside of it being packed it was awesome. My preschool daughter especially loved the water room.

I feel lucky to have this place so close to home. We have had memberships. I'm bummed that my family has out grown this place for the most part. An absolute must see if you are passing through Norwalk with small children. It's always a good day when you tell you child to "go ahead and touch!". You need to go to the playground while you're there. Plenty of parking. Just sometime it's difficult to get my son to not got in the gift shop. It's placed right at the door and some visits I spend too much time trying to get him out of there.
