Downtown NYC Indoor Play Spaces for Babies, Toddlers and Preschoolers

The heat of the summer has somewhat let up and I am already in a tailspin trying to figure out where I am going to take my little ones this winter.  If your building doesn't have a kids playroom, will you be braving the elements and ice cold slides at your local playground?  Here is a quick and dirty round-up of indoor playgrounds, exhibits and play spaces by neighborhood to keep your rugrats dry and warm.  We are starting off with Downtown.

Downtown

Apple Seeds (212) 792-7590 - 10 West 25th Street (btw. Broadway and 6th)

This playspace in Chelsea has a 2500 square foot indoor playground complete with a NY deli with fake food, mini skyscrapers and a reading room.  It's truly a great space but doesn't come cheap - you need to be a member to access the playspace which will run you around $945 though the price of some classes comes with membership.  There is also a kids hair salon and a boutique cafe and bookstore on-site.

 

 

 

Baby Moves (212) 255-1685 - 155 Bank Street (btw. Washington and West Streets)

Open play is $20 per child at this indoor playspace that has kitchens, cars and towers to climb.  Call ahead for reservations as open play is limited to Monday-Thursday from 1pm-2pm.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Chelsea Piers Little Athletes Exploration Center - (212) 336-6500 - Chelsea Piers Field House, 11th Avenue at 23rd Street between Piers 61 and 62.

This exploration indoor playground is located within Chelsea Piers Pier 62 Field House and has drop in open play from Monday-Friday 9:30am-12pm , 1pm-5pm.  One session is $12, five sessions are $50 and unlimited monthly admission is $155.  

 

 

City Treehouse - (212) 255-2050 - 129A West 20th Street between 6th and 7th Avenue

Open Play from 1am-5pm and fees are $10 per child per hour.  Complete with a water table and of course tree house this play space is great for kids from infant to age 5.  

 

 

 

Citibabes - (212) 334 - 5440 - 52 Mercer Street between Broome and Grand, 3rd FL

From a gym to a spa a family wellness center with a lounge and cafe featuring organic meals, this is a downtown parent's destination point come winter.  There are great indoor spots for soft climbing and crawling, a jungle gym and soft lego blocks.  Membership does not come cheap; a 6 month membership is $1300 per family and annual is $2100.

 

Gymboree Play & Music - (212) 255-5650 - 327 West 14th Street between 8th and 9th Avenue

This national chain offers its members a playspace for open play along with access to the multitude of classes and the play floor and equipment is soft on knees and early walkers tushies.  Check online for open play times.

Kidville - (212) 362-3923 - 200 Church Street at Duane Street

Indoor Playspace play is for members only, but luckily membership is complimentary for those little ones registered for Fall classes though fees start at around $725.  The indoor gyms are supervised so there is always a staff member on-hand.
