Play East Lansing
Where are we going today?
Who's ready to PLAY! Well, if you're in East Lansing, you might want to try out the very aptly named Play....where kids can...(can you guess?) Yep - PLAY!
This super fun indoor play center in Michigan is 2,600 square feet of playground and party space just for those active little ones. The staff at Play have created a clean, comfortable, and eco-friendly environment for kids to play in, and parents to relax in.
Each of the activities in the center are designed just for the children's gross and fine motor skills development, cognitive stimulation and imaginative play - so they will be learning, developing and growing, whilst they just think they are having a great time!
Play is also filled with age appropriate activities, where they can use natural learning. They can bring their own playspace using large yet lightweight moveable objects, which means each session is a new experience. They can even build a very cool castle, then tear it all down to build an obstacle course!
In the Cedarworks Playhouse there are two playhouses with all the home essentials to give kids a chance to see what it is like to "play house" - they can feed the babies, relax with friends, have some play time in the kitchen or just let their imagination take away with them!
Perhaps it's time for some food? Kids love heading to the Farmers Market where they can learn ALL about eating healthy, growing their own food, and harvesting from the garden!
With a reading nook that allows them to spend time with all their favorite friends, to a train table perfect for kids who love wheels, and then the racecars...Play really does have something for all children, and gives them a great time learning as they have a ton of FUN!

Play. has been such a huge part of our social life since it opened in 2012, meeting there for play dates, classes and for their cool special events. My daughter just finished a two-week day camp at play. and she can't stop talking about it. My kids and I would rather hang out at play. than any other place in Lansing. It's full of awesome eco-friendly toys and it's always clean. But the best part is that there are always cool people to talk to and comfy couches to chill out on while the kids run around.

Clean, fun and well designed, this place is a great spot to take your children! It's easy to observe everything they do, and with free WiFi, you can even get a little work done! It's affordable too!

I had my son's birthday party there. The place is great but they don't let you know is $50 extra if your party goes over even one minute past the ending time, which when you pay $250 for 2 hours and there is not another party after yours is pretty ridiculous. The owner started cleaning up even before the time was up making us all feel really unwelcome. The place is good but for that price and customer service I'd go somewhere else next time.

We've spent many hot summer days goofing around at Play. Play in East Lansing is a safe, welcoming, eco-friendly FUN environment for children and their adults (Free Wi-Fi) too. I know of many Mom groups that frequent this place, myself being in one of them! I hope to have my child's birthday party here as it seems like the coolest place to have a toddlers' birthday party in Lansing, Mi! I highly recommend...PLAY.

Play is a much needed addition to the Lansing area. It's a wonderful option for parents who are looking for new and fun experiences for their children. The toys and activities at play really encourage imagination and creativity, and the space is comfortable and inviting for kids and adults. I will definitely be returning with my daughter.

We love it so much that we've hosted two awesome birthday parties there and all that attended were impressed by the place. So glad we've got a membership since it has really been put to good use this year and it offers great discounts for programs and events. Can't say enough good things about play.!!
