This play center in Lincoln Square lets kids burn off some energy in its play area, but there's also a full-service cafe and a kids' hair salon. The play space is designed for kids age 6 months through 6 years and has a crawlers-only space. Kids receive free admission to the play space with each haircut (appointments available online). While kids play, parents can supervise from the clean and cozy cafe space. Other offerings include art and music classes and birthday party packages and supervised play time.
