With our local weather usually being way too hot (over half the year) or way too cold (about one third of the year), it is important to provide indoor entertainment and activities for our children and grandchildren during those weather-challenging times. Tucked away in a quiet corner strip mall off Polo Road is just the right place for safe, clean, healthy fun for young children, no matter the weather.
The proprietors of Abbey’s are very accommodating and work tirelessly to make certain that your experience in their facility will be enjoyable. Filled with several inflatable bouncy-houses, dozens of small plastic riding cars, three riding ramps, a large climbing mountain, play tables and infant swings, there is so much for a preschooler to do that they may be a bit overwhelmed on their first visit. But within just a few seconds, most kids are happily scooting from one play activity to the next. This place was created just for them!
In one corner is a dress-up closet complete with every kind of imaginable costume, all of which can be put on over clothes and velcro-closed for easy removal. There is a vanity, a playhouse, a kitchen and a play-pen type enclosure perfect for the very young. A large inflated locomotive leads to a slide and a tunnel, beyond which is a castle and another slide. There is also a small trampoline, so there are lots of ways for little arms and legs to get exercise.
Best of all, Abbey’s is the perfect place for imaginative play. Parents and grandparents can easily see the entire room from the picnic tables set on one side of the room. Bring in your own lunch or snacks, or purchase crackers, candies and juices. There is a small sink, too, so the little ones can wash up after eating before going back to the play area. Hand sanitizers are placed on the picnic tables for parental usage, too.
Abbey’s also offers birthday packages at very reasonable prices for any party up to 25 children. They are closed Saturday afternoons and Sundays just for birthday parties, but are open the rest of the week. They offer several special birthday plans, so please call or visit their website (see below) for further information.
Abbey’s offers several plans to make attending very affordable with the purchase of multi-visit cards. Suggestion: buy the largest multi-visit card available, because your child will beg to come back again and again!
Abbey’s Playtown is the winner of the Best Indoor Playspace in Nickelodeon’s Parents Pick Awards for the DFW metro area. Congratulations to them on their well-deserved award.
