Kids Fun Town is a surprisingly nice commercial drop in. My kids have had a blast every time we have gone. It is run by a nice immigrant owner with a child of my own. Among other things it has a ball pit, a climbing structure and a large Bouncy Castle with slide. $7.50 for first child. $6.50 for second. 10 passes for $55 (with no expiration). Free wifi, coffee and tea. Nice clean bathroom and change station in basement. Their focus is on safety. Beyond that they don’t have a ton of silly rules like other places. As of March 2016 it and Amazon are my favorite places within the Metro Toronto borders – Monkey McGoos having fallen out of favor with drop-in hours changes made by its new owner.
It’s located on the north side of Danforth a stone’s throw west of Woodbine (see map below). If available there is easy paid street parking in front.
HOWEVER BEWARE! I received a ticket overstaying the meter by 6 minutes. AND MORE OMINOUSLY I was towed when I stayed past 4pm when parked on the south side of the street. I had paid for parking till 4:30 but my car was gone when I came out at 4:20. it cost me almost $400 all-in (ticket, towing, original meter fees and cab fair home then to the towing depot). The much safer (and cheaper) option is to park in the municipal lot by Value Village, South/East of woodbine and Danforth. But on a cold winter day it’s much harder to maneuver a 2 and 4 year old from the parking lot two blocks away than parking on the street in front.
Alternatively, it’s very close to Woodbine subway. Unfortunately that subway stop has no elevator for strollers.
MARCH 2016 UPDATE: At substantial expense the owner added the caged climbing structure pictures below in March 2016, making place even more fun.
