Thanks again! I love hearing about how you are expanding your horizons. Your perseverance is inspirational!! You are a wonderful and strong role model for young girls.
"We had a birthday party for our children at The Big Playhouse this past weekend. In past years, we chose children's gyms, child entertainers, and parties at our house; but those did not compare to our experience at The Big Playhouse. While the children's gym offered us two staff members on our party day, the Big Playhouse offered us many staff members plus the owner. The staff's attention to detail and organization amazed me. We dropped off bags of our supplies ahead of time, and did not need to do anything else. They used our supplies and some of their supplies to decorate everything better than I could have done myself. My children had never seen the Playhouse prior to their party day. When they walked in and saw all of the rooms of toys, they looked like they had entered toy paradise. The look on their faces made me feel assured that the investment was well worth it. Our guests had a blast, both children and adults. The Playhouse keeps kids so happy and busy that parents can actually take a breath and enjoy themselves as well. While parents spent carefree time mingling in the classy "cafe area" that the staff set up in the middle of the playhouse (complete with elegant café tables and chairs), their children stayed happily occupied in the toddler-safe play areas. Staff members walked around with trays of coffee to pass around to the adults, making the parents feel very much at home. The cost is pricey, but completely worth it. I have read other reviews, which mostly rave about the Playhouse. Yes, everyone has to take off their shoes when they walk in, and staff members enforce this rule in a friendly way. Without this rule, the Playhouse would not be so immaculately clean. Our socks didn't even look dirty at all when we went home, after walking all around the playhouse for two hours! One reviewer claimed that staff was disrespectful, but this was not our experience at all. In fact, our experience was the opposite. Staff bent over backwards for us and our children, in a very respectful, professional and friendly way. In summary, if you are looking for a stress-free birthday party for your child, one that allows children to have a blast and parents to relax, and one that is unique and classy, I highly recommend that you check out the Playhouse."

I had the pleasure of attending a tea party for toddlers here the other weekend. The owner is a complete professional. She was tasked with setting up a tea party for 20 kids, candy stations and lots of decorations. Her staff was ready, willing and able to assist all guests the entire time. Although she was prepared and efficiently staffed, some guests were late and our time frame shifted. The owner remained calm and patient with all guests. And, all children and parents thoroughly enjoyed the space and diverse set of activities at the Big Playhouse.
Space: Great with several activities to keep the babies busy (no shoes allowed)
Owner & Staff: Creative, ready, willing and able
Had my daughter's 4th birthday party here and everyone including the parents loved it! Ariel also arrived for a visit and it was phenomenal -- she sang, read a book and did glitter tattoos and took lots of pics -- as I told my hubby -- this will be hard to top -- may just need to go back for her 5th! Everything was flawless!

ATTRACTIONS IN BERGEN COUNTY NJ
AND THINGS TO DO IN BERGEN COUNTY NJ
At THE BIG PLAYHOUSE, we focus on the good old-fashioned dramatic play with real lifestyle communities using dolls, trucks and many other imaginary props. Our goal is to encourage children to participate in dramatic play and build their social skills in a setting that simulates real-world situations.
Open Play hours are from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm Mondays through Fridays.
THE BIG PLAYHOUSE is a custom-built open play area, which was created to replicate a traditional downtown mini city called AT MAIN. Each play structure is outfitted with costumes, furniture and toys to enhance your child's imaginative play experience through GOOD OLDE-FASHIONED DRAMATIC PLAY. Here your child will be able to
*Suit-up in uniform at the Construction Site
*Whip up sweet treats and favorite dishes at CAFÉ AT MAIN
*Conduct check ups on their dollies or special stuffed animals in our DOCTOR’S OFFICE AT MAIN
*Stock shelves in THE FRESH MARKET AT MAIN
*Visit our barnyard and meet all our puppet farm animals including TJ and let your imagination run wild
*Stop by our little library called BARNYARD LIBRARY, located right next to our Barnyard
*Simply "puttering around at home" in our version of a cottage residence called THE VILLAGE.
In addition to the play village, we offer various toys for the children to enjoy around the space while parents/caregivers play along; or browse our little boutique called BOUTIQUE J or use the complimentary WI-FI to fit in some work.
The children will have the opportunity to explore our amazing attractions with other children their age.

THE BIG PLAYHOUSE includes three main areas inspired by a series of children's books written by the owner, Larine Baratta, who formerly owned a Goddard School. The areas include a barnyard from "Horsing Around in the Barnyard," a village from "A Day in Our Little Village" and a main street-style area from "Meet Me at Main."
Smiling characters from Baratta's books who also represent a diverse mix of cultural and ethnic backgrounds adorn the walls of The Big Playhouse. That falls into the whole idea of encouraging kids to deal with people different from themselves.
This Mommy and Me / Daddy and me provides a great experience for you and your child. Your children will be only a hug away from their parents at all times.
Your child(ren) can bring their favorite doll or adopt-a-BABY for the day.
