Welcome to Purple Monkey Playroom – a bright, nurturing destination for young children, parents and caregivers. Recipient of the 2012 Red Tricycle Award for Coolest Indoor Playspace, we invite you to relax, connect with other adults, and enjoy free coffee, tea and WiFi as your children explore our whimsical space.


Purple Monkey’s thoughtful, 1,500 square foot playroom is designed with the education, enjoyment and safety of infants through preschoolers in mind. A plush, dedicated alcove will capture the curiosity of lap babies and crawlers with age-appropriate toys. Older kids will always be within your sightlines as they bounce, climb, build, read, color, and engage in imaginative play.


In addition to all-day, every day open play, Purple Monkey offers a jam packed calendar of special events for both kids and adults, included with the daily drop-in fee or memberships. Check out our calendar or follow us on Facebook for details! 

Purple Monkey is also a full service party destination. Visit our party page to see how we can help you plan a unique and memorable birthday party or baby shower. 

Stop in for a visit! We look forward to welcoming you!
