Parents' Survival Night

Parents call it a break from the kids. Kids call it a break from their parents. That sounds like a win-win situation to us. Our Parents’ Survival Nights out let you enjoy some adult time to see a movie, catch up with friends or enjoy a meal without—ahem—your pint-sized food critics in tow. Meanwhile, your children get some quality “kid time” in a safe, fun, familiar place with trained instructors who lead them through music, games, and fun LEGO® DUPLO® and LEGO® Juniors building activities. We schedule Parentsʼ Survival Nights out for select Friday and Saturday evenings. Spots fill quickly, so book soon for your win-win night off.

Sunday Funday: Pop-Up Books

Long before one could pick up a tablet and conjure up a streaming video at the touch of a finger, the pop-up book was a popular sensation because of the way it engaged the imagination in a way that flat images and text never could. In fact, some of the earliest moving image books were anatomy texts; if a picture is worth a thousand words, pictures that move in 3 dimensions must be even more valuable! While books with sliding and moving images date back at least to the 13th century, the pop-up book as we know it was not mass produced until 1930. By designing and building our own pop ups, we’ll get to think a little bit about the know-how it took to bring these familiar childhood books into our homes and lives – and have fun being creative, too!
