No matter rain or shine, there is one thing you can always count on for a fun time with your little ones. No, I’m not talking about your electronic devices. I’m talking about indoor playgrounds.

1. Take A Breath

The highlight of the Take A Breath indoor playground has got to be the small maze within a honeycomb. Crawling and climbing through it, little ones will be able to reach the playhouse on the second floor, from where they can access a crocheted tree. When they’ve had enough of hanging out at the treehouse, they can climb a flight of stairs down to swim in a ball pit.
Additionally, Take A Breath also has a selection of picture books and an assortment of toys in storage bins (and outside of it), ranging pretend playsets to building blocks.
