  1. I DON’T LIKE INDOOR PLAYGROUND THERE SO FULL OF GERMS THEY NEED TO HAVE MORE EXCITING THINGS FOR TODDLERS TO LEARN

  2. Sorry those McDonald playgrounds are the pits and the ones near me don’t have apparatuses for 19 month olds. The mall sounds like a good idea kind of.

  3. I love indoor playgrounds too, especially on rainy or cold days when we can’t go to the park. I try to put the nasty stories I’ve heard out of my mind and wash up afterwards! We always make sure to wash our hands well after playing at any playground (at least in theory, haha). We love to visit all these place on your list, especially the library. Local bookstores also often have storytime and crafts for kids that are free. Also Lowes and Home Depot have saturday building project for kids that I think are also free, you just have to reserve a spot.

  4. The last time I was at a McDonald’s playground with my kid was 6 1/2 years ago when my oldest was about 18 months old. I went up into the tunnels with her and we started climbing all over the place and it was so much fun…. until we came across some discarded chewing gum that was smeared all over the inside of the tunnel (thankfully we saw it in time to stop- another kid wasn’t so lucky)! The gum wasn’t the worst thing, though. AFTER we were out, and getting ready to leave, a kid ran over to his mom and said (and this is a direct quote), “She’s throwing up again!” Genius mom brought her kid with a stomach bug to the playground because she thought it would be good to get her little precious out of the house for a bit. So little precious threw up in the tunnels. My children and I have witnessed all sorts of nasty things happening on those playgrounds. Kids throwing up, kids covered in snot, kids who aren’t completely potty trained, toddlers with nasty diapers breaking open on the slide and smearing all sorts of disgusting goo all the way down. Thankfully, we have only witnessed these incidents from the outside looking in (and being grateful the whole time that we weren’t in there!).

    Indoor playgrounds are nasty, nasty places! I miss the good old days when playgrounds were outside in the sunshine. If anything nasty happened, a worker would just hose it down and life went on. Literally, they hosed it down water hose and let the sun kill all the germs and everyone was happy. Those were good times.
