Salvation in the Form of an Indoor Playground

A few weeks ago, someone mentioned to us that there was an indoor playground in Stuttgart.  It's open three days a week and is operated inside a church completely free of charge.  The first week we could check it out was last week, but it was closed due to the Fasching break.  That meant this week was the first time we could actually go.  Unfortunately, we found out about it a little too late and it's about to shut down for the season in two weeks, so we'll have to take advantage of it while we can.

Our plan was to meet up with some other moms and that was a good thing since the locals also frequent this playground and outside the other moms, no one else was speaking English.  It was a really great open space with lots of different types of toys for kids to play with and areas for climbing.  Needless to say, Brady was in heaven, and it was nice for me to be able to sit back and watch him expend some energy.  He gets crabby at home because he's confined in a small space and only has the same toys to play with.  This place allowed him to run and jump. 

Of course he would go for the cars first.

A great ball pit with a slide leading into it

Brady got a kick out of the trampoline.  He's so busy jumping that I couldn't even get a clear picture.

He loved the seesaw they had at Gymboree and they had several different types there for him to rock on


  1. We just heard about this today from another Stuttgart mom, but we don't have the address. Could you post it?
