What is Planet Play?

Imagine a place where children explore the way things work and build their problem-solving skills…share, laugh, collaborate and interpret the world around them…lay the groundwork for literacy, math and science learning to come…let their imaginations soar and launch a lifelong quest for discovery…feel joyful, safe and warmly welcomed. Imagine Planet Play.

  • Birthday Parties

Give your birthday girl or boy and their friends a playful party they’ll be talking about for weeks to come at Planet Play. For $250, your child and his or her friends will have private use of Planet Play’s pop-up space and all the materials they need for two hours of free play. Our space is bright and colorful, but you’re welcome to decorate if you’d like, and bring any food and beverages you wish. The birthday child receives a Planet Play t-shirt, and every guest receives two-for-one passes to come back and play with us again.

Birthday parties may be on these days and times:

  • Saturday afternoons from 2:30 – 4:30 p.m.
  • Sundays from 10 a.m. to noon
  • Sundays from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.

Additional days and times may be possible. Email us at connect@planetplay.org to schedule your child’s party!
