Our absolute go-to spot for toddler fun in Columbus is COSI’s little kidspace®. ! This past winter, I kept hearing friends rave about their section for first grade and under: How engaging, colorful, and fun it was!I also had so many people tell me that their yearly membership rates were well worth it, especially if you have littles ones 2 and under! As we Ohioans know, the winters can be long and brutal… especially when you have littles ones to entertain.
I had heard enough great reviews and decided to check this place out this past January, once Ava was over one year old and clearly needing some space to run and explore! We purchased an Individual Membership pass for $89 for the year – which includes myself, a guest, and any kids that are 2 and under (more info on memberships HERE). I loved buying this pass because it meant I could bring my husband or a friend or family member… and my little girl, of course, was free! The pass gets you in anywhere you want to go in the massive science museum and research center, but we frequent the little kidspace section quite often!
During the winter months, it was absolutely perfect and we went nearly every weekend. During the spring and summer, we love to visit anytime when our babe is a bit stir-crazy, but COSI can’t be beaten on the rainy and/or super hot days! Ava loves to climb up the treehouse, go down the slides, fill up the wheelbarrows with fruits and veggies from the market, splash at the water table, pretend she is grilling food in the house, and take care of the stuffed animals in the barn, just to name a few things! There is SO MUCH to do for the little ones! We always stay for a couple hours and try to leave before she gets too over-tired, but she could play there forever! The Little Kid Space area also has a lunch area, vending machines, and a private nursing room.Obviously, we love COSI (it made the #1 spot on this list for a reason!), and all the fun play hours it’s given our girl, so, when COSI wanted to partner for a giveaway, I didn’t hesitate to say YES!
