Jelly Bean Jungle, Marlton,NJ. This is a great indoor play place to bring your toddler (5 and under). They have a ball pit, a complete hit in every kid's mind, a climbing area, a dress up area, and a place to eat lunch, you can bring your own or purchase food there. I like it because it's clean and it's small. If your rambunctious 2 year old decides to make a run for it, there is only so far to go and you have a full visual, which makes it easy to multi-task if you have more than one. The admission is $9 for kids 1-5 (infants and non-crawlers are free), 2 adults may accompany each child for no charge. A yearly pass is definitely worth it (check out rates at their website).It's also a great place for a party!

Ocean 'n' Motion, Mt. Laurel, NJ. This is an indoor play place like Jelly Bean Jungle but with a different theme. At this interactive play center that promotes "ocean awareness", your child can burn off a little steam and learn something at the same time. What more could we ask for? It is also a safe play environment for kids age 5 and under. Admission is $9.95 for kids 1-5, and $4.95 for infants 8-11 months. Adults are free.

Kid Junction, Mt. Laruel, NJ. Kid Junction is now open and be prepared on that first visit with your toddler, that they will kick and scream and not want to leave, trust me, it happened to me. I love this place because it is very clean. There are great “stations”. They have a great climbing/slide section for toddlers and a smaller section for infants they call Jail with a safety gate so no prisoners break free (cute). They have a post office, a gym, a vet, pizza place and a grocery store. Don’t forget to bring a couple extra bucks for the token rides and to grab a bite to eat in the great little “cafe”. The place is big enough for you child to run around, yet small enough not to lose them. And don’t fret if you do, each child and parent is given a matching number upon entry and they won’t let you leave without checking it twice. Admission is $9.95 for child 2 and over and $6.95 for 2 and under. This place is definitely worth the time to check out and possibly a great place for a birthday party.

The Little Treehouse, Chestnut Hill, Pa. My sister raves about this place. She loves to go and enjoy lunch or coffee while her daughter plays. They often go here for play dates. At this play Cafe, there is something for everyone. There is a giant play space for children to explore and play with an area for parents to sit and relax while they talk to friends and watch their children. Admission is $8.50 for one child, the 2nd child is half off and Adults are free. Looking for ways to save, purchase 10 visits for $55, that's a saving of $30! They also hold birthday parties!

Kidz Rule, Hatfield, Pa. This is an indoor play place with giant inflatables and Moon Bounces. They not only throw birthday parties but they offer open play where you pay one price and can bounce all day, and parents are free. You don't have to stand around with nothing to do while your kids bounce, occupy yourself with their wide screen tv and free Wi-Fi Internet access. You brought your older child but your younger one isn't big enough to bounce? No worries, they have an indoor play area for kids under the age of 2! Nice!
