When I first heard about Jumpin' Jeepers (located in Mahopac) through a mother's group, it sounded like exactly what I was looking for. It is a 3,000 square foot indoor play area loaded with play structures, a bouncy house, ride-on toys, an imaginative play section, and even a dedicated little baby space for the very young. For ages 1-9, Jumpin’ Jeepers is a great place for mom and dad to relax while keeping an easy eye on the kids.
When I first arrived, though, I was a little apprehensive. There were SO many things to do! How would my little 1 year old not get lost? Well, with the little-little-kid dedicated area, it went perfectly (and there were about 30 moms that showed that day for the mother's group event, so there was potential for insanity!). Sean had a great time, he wasn't lost and I met a lot of new people.
Since that time, we've gone there on our own several times. There's always at least a few moms there to talk with and Sean is able to use the larger, big-kid toys. Soon baby Shane will be whipping down the slides and zooming by with a Melissa and Doug Shopping Cart.
Their café is also a special favorite of mine, especially with their organic food selection. It’s one less stress for me when my energetic children need a break. Plus I’m sure their peanut-free zone requirement is also a big help to many moms.
There is more information about Jumpin' Jeepers on our site here, and you can win a four-pack of passes to try them out. And if you're looking for more things to do with the kids, check out our local events calendar here.
Let those kids bounce off their walls, not yours :)
