  3. Uptown Jungle, Mesa- A gated toddler area awaits your wee one at Urban Jungle, with lots of climbing adventures for your big kids.

7. Giggles in Chandler at Elliot and Alma School Rds is an amazing place with indoor trampolines, dramatic play areas, indoor playscapes and more! The owner developed it just as his two daughters wanted-and it is a huge success! I highly recommend it. There is a nice seating area for bringing your own snacks and lunch, as well as a party room too!

8. Teenytown Playland. This fun, indoor place is themed with 8 different “mini” places for kids to play and imagine. Kids can delight with their imaginations and use gross and fine motor skills while adults play along and sit and relax.

9. Rush Fun Park Peoria-Rush Fun Park is perfect for toddlers and young ones who want what the big kids have, but need to stay a little separate. The play area at Rush Fun Park is big enough to keep your Toddler fully occupied while your big kid is happy too.
