Once again this week, the "park" of the week is a little different. Since it's hot in Houston and we haven't gotten our days started early enough, we are reviewing a very unique (and free) indoor playground.
Not only does Gallery Furniture's I45 location have a giant indoor playground, but it also has exotic birds, monkeys and free lunch, cookies and ice cream.
And guess what? You don't even have to pretend like you are shopping. Gallery Furniture is happy to have you bring the kids, play, eat and go home!
So, that is what we did. We went to watch the monkeys jumping and swinging in the middle of the store. We all giggled as they dribbled basketballs and put on a show for their audience. And did you know they wear diapers? (This may have been my 5 year old's favorite part.)
Right in the play area is a small restroom for the kids and it was clean and well maintained. The playground area was just a little damp, but not much different than most fast food playplaces.
The playground is closed off from the rest of the store, so I was able to sit and relax while the kids went crazy.
We finally did go see the exotic birds and made our way to the cafe. Here we were able to grab drinks, all the food we wanted from the buffet line and ice cream.
