Carving space

. October 31, 2012.

My Urban Toddler is a one-stop-shop for toddler wares and, of course, educational entertainment for youngsters with its 3,000-square foot play space. Recently, owners Rosa Lee and Lorrie McKee began a new model to increase the charm of My Urban Toddler's "pop in and play" experience. The space now accepts reservations for the play area four days per week (Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday). Parents, groups, preschools and others will have the opportunity to reserve the entire play area, while Mondays, Tuesdays and Saturdays will still be open for drop-in play. However, $8 will be charged per person, instead of per child. Reserving the play area has benefits including: no lines to contend with, VIP staff attention and age appropriate interaction.
