Giveaway: Monthly passes to the new play center, Imagine Adventureworld!

seating, cottageMamas, we are hearing RAVE reviews about a new play center in Johnson called Imagine Adventureworld. (It’s just a minute or two off Interstate 49, at the Johnson exit.)

As moms, we are always interested in play areas that have a serious commitment to keeping things CLEAN, especially during cold and flu season. And kids are loving all the fun areas where they can play and let their big imaginations run wild.

This week we’re hosting a giveaway for 2 monthly passes to Imagine Adventureworld. (One for you and one for a friend to hape toy imagine adventureworldtake along!) Your little one will also get a new toy to take home. (Toys used at Imagine are made by either the Melissa & Doug brand or the Hape brand.) There will be THREE winners for this week’s giveaway, so your chances of winning are great.

One thing we love about Imagine is that it was created by two local parents whose kids are ages 5 and 3. They’ve really paid attention to what young kids like to do, focusing on creative and imaginative play (and not just more screens!) We also love that the play area is wide open, so moms and dads can sit in the center seating area and relax yet still see where their little ones are at all times.

Imagine has several different themed play areas including a cottage (perfect for tea parties and playing house); a racetrack; a construction zone; vet clinic; firestation; drawing area; a place for ride-on toys; and even a special area just for babies who are cruising or crawling. They’ve thought of everything!
