Some Things Stay The Same

Mallory is nearly six. When we first started coming to Play Town she was not even two, and this place was brand new. Here we are again today, and she and Gagey Boy are running around having a BLAST. And Play Town is as clean and bright and full of fun toys as it was five years ago. I love how some things never change.

The kids are giggling, jumping in the jumpy/slide combo and I’m sitting in a comfy glider enjoying the music (pop rock for moms,not kids) and the free WIFI. It might be nearly 100 degrees outside today, but Play Town is nice and cool. Vibrantly full but not too crowded. The infant siblings of toddlers and preschoolers are snoozing in their carriers or bouncing around in their Baby Bjorns. I remember those days!

Some things never change. Play Town is still one of the most affordable indoor play options in San Diego. And while you can purchase quite a few goodies including coffee from their snack area, you are welcome to bring in your own food and drinks. This can represent quite a savings as I’m sure you know, but I do love to give my kids each $2 and let them pick out and pay for their own treats at the Play Town snack bar. Today it’s chocolate milk and mini Chips Ahoy for Mal and apple juice and Goldfish crackers for Gage.

“After this, do you want to play some air hockey Gage?” Mal just asked. I love that the sweetness between this brother and sister hasn’t changed. And I love that Play Town is still going strong in the East County, offering indoor play, birthday parties and terrific special events like the recent costume exchange, ongoing Sign 4 Baby sign language classes, storytime, a breastfeeding support group, craft days and a mommy boutique. Check them out on the 31st for the Halloween Carnival from 10 a.m. until 12 p.m. Visit for more information!
