My son loves going to indoor play areas. He is introduced to so many toys that we don't have room for in our house. He also interacts with kids too! Here are some play centers ranked based on Google Stars and Google Reviews!

Indoor kids play areas are popping up everywhere in Massachusetts, and for good reason. As a parent, these play centers can be a saving grace, especially when it’s raining outside. Think about how many times you’ve thought to yourself, “I need to get out of the house with this child, but where should I go?”

As a mother of a 20-month-old, I am constantly looking for ways to keep my son entertained, and drained, so he sleeps well at night. That’s why I have searched extensively for these indoor kids play areas to visit myself. Some of these places I have personally visited. Others were recommended to me by the internet, or other parents. For your viewing enjoyment, I have ranked some indoor kids play areas for you. These are ranked based on Google reviews and Google star ratings.

Why Indoor Kids Play Areas Are So Important

I’ve already mentioned that these indoor kids areas are important when you’re looking for something to do when it’s raining. That part is obvious. But now that I’ve brought my son to these play areas, I’ve realized that they offer so much more than just a place to visit to get out of the rain.

Especially with other people’s toys! This photo was taken at Children’s World in Canton. They have a huge indoor warehouse with bouncy houses, basketball hoops, slides, train tables, and so much more. As you can see, he approves!

Parents Get Just As Much Out Of It

These indoor areas are great for young parents and grandparents to network and get to know each other. Last weekend I brought my son to The South Shore Sports Center in Hingham. Inside the soccer facility they have an entire basketball gym sectioned off for a “Kids World.” There’s bouncy houses, Little Tikes cars, play houses, reading books, seating areas, and more activities for young children.

But I was more impressed by the amount of young couples socializing with their Starbucks coffees on a Saturday morning. This was the place to be on the South Shore. Couples were talking and laughing. They were catching up with each other on their jobs and family life. It was cool to see, and I even met some new people myself!

Kids Learn So Much More When Interacting With Others

Kids need to remember what it’s like to actually interact with other humans. At these indoor play centers, they are forced to make friends. I mean, I guess they don’t have to, but there are so many of them running around that they’re bound to play with the same basketball or slide down the same small slide. At these play centers kids are also forced to share the communal toys with each other. I know, the wild concept of sharing!!

It’s really productive to bring your kid to one of these centers. Get them dirty, let them run around and encourage them to meet new people and try new toys (that you won’t have to buy for your own home!)

Here’s Some Of Massachusetts’ Indoor Kids Play Areas Ranked

  • Children's World Indoor Playground - Canton

    Location: 465 Turnpike St, Canton, MA 02021
    Rating On Google: 4.0 (based on 152 reviews)
    Pricing: 1st Child $16 / Additional Child $14 / 1st Adult Free / Additional Adult $2
    What People Are Saying:
    5-star Review – This place is clean and well organized. Staff is friendly and seems to pick up as much as they can. We will be back! Great for toddlers!
    2-star Review – This place has so much more potential. Dear owners, please take a note. First of all, the opening time should be 9 a.m. Toddlers wake up early. In any case, this playground doesn’t even open at 9:30. The person who opens it *constantly* late. You are lucky she arrives at 9:35. And that’s her arrival time, then she needs to open the door, inflate the bouncy things. So the earliest you can get in is 9:45 a.m. Also the majority of toddlers nap from 12- 3. Close the playground for that time and reopen at 3 to 7pmthat time and reopen at 3 untill 5:30-6. Check out Jam time. So much smaller but so many more people exactly for the reasons I told you. I wish I can attend you playground but unfortunately it just doesn’t work.

    1-Star Review – “This place has so much potential to be a great place for kids. Unfortunately it is terribly managed. I did not see a single adult that worked at this place which is extremely dangerous. The workers were kind but they didn’t look any older than 20 😳 This was my fist time here and I don’t think I would ever come back. I would try out the one in NH”

    5-Star Review – “Went to kidz wurld with my almost 3yo daughter today for the first time. This is a great place to go with littles when weather might not be ideal to play outside. There are slides, inflated jump houses, all the kitchen and grocery tables, cozy cars and more. There are arcade games that you can pay for, and mini golf. There is also food and ice cream offerings. Family sized bathrooms with changing tables 👏 my daughter can’t wait to go back already.”
    1-Star Review – “If I could give this place ZERO stars I would. Every toy is dirty. The staff is super young and the place has 3 bounce houses that takes up majority of the space. My toddler was bored the moment we stepped inside. Not worth the $10 and won’t ever come back.”

One of the staff told me that the color books could not be brought in because color books consider as toys. I said I didn’t bring any color pen why can’t I only bring the color books in? Then she insisted not to let me in. Ridiculous rule”
