love letters

what people are saying...

"I took my daughter to Giggles Play to an event. She absolutely loved playing with all of the toys and climbing. Her favorite part was climbing. The front of the place was super cute with flower painted windows, benches, and little cubbies to place shoes. The gate at the front was a great touch, I'm so used to chasing my toddler everywhere. It was nice to have an enclosed space to let her run around and not have to hover. The owner was very personable and really good with the kids. There were so many different areas to play, I would definitely recommend."

"My daughter recently attended a class series at Giggles Play, and she had a great time! The space is very clean and welcoming and the toy selection is excellent for my 2 year old. I highly recommend Giggles as a play space for your toddler."

"We LOVE Giggles! My 14 month old loves playing there - we have a membership and she goes to play multiple times a week! Jess is also the absolute best and nicest human there is! I feel so lucky we have Giggles in the neighborhood!"

"I’m so thrilled to welcome Giggles Play to our community. Jess has built a beautiful space with a gorgeously curated selection of toys to promote independent play. My two year old was completely engrossed for the two plus hours we spent here. I was so happy to see my son exploring and using his imagination without getting overwhelmed or bored. It’s really the perfect balance for toddlers and young children. Highly recommend checking them out!"

"We had the pleasure of hosting our son’s 2nd birthday at Giggles, and we cannot say enough great things about the facility and the owner, Jess! It’s a wonderful, clean space with so many different toys and activities for a spectrum of ages, infant and up. We are looking forward to frequenting Giggles in the future, especially in the upcoming winter months. And big thank you to Jess for her quick communication and helpfulness in assisting with our event!"

"I feel so lucky that we get to have Giggles in our neighborhood! Jess is incredible (how does she remember every child’s name?) and she creates dynamic play spaces so that each time we visit there’s both the comfort of what we’ve enjoyed before and excitement for the new setups. As a mom, I feel like I always leave with a meaningful tip from her. It’s also been great to meet new families there and reconnect with other parents while the kids explore. I appreciate that it’s stocked with the kinds of toys I’d love to splurge on but don’t feel I have to because we can just go to Giggles."

"We love going to giggles! I can let my daughter run and play while I find a relaxing spot or play with her. There’s lots of open play options. The owner Jess is so helpful and friendly. They also have great events!"

"We loved being able to celebrate our daughter’s 3rd birthday party at Giggles! We love how welcoming, calming, and engaging the space is! The layout makes it easy to watch children and let them play. Jess is amazing and so helpful. She really understands the needs of young children and their caregivers! So many families reached out to let us know how much fun their children had and how much they loved being at Giggles. We are already looking forward to our next visit!"
