Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a great holiday season and is ready for 2013!
Indoor play space is golden during the wet and cold winter season in Northern California. My children and I are always up for checking out a new one as each has a different personality. UME is in Menlo Park so it is a little bit of a drive for us but wow, were we glad we found this place! It is spacious and airy not only from the size but also the high loft ceiling. Also the modern, clean, whimsical decor really adds to the open feeling.
<...This structure in the middle of the play space houses a slide.
I LOVE these creature(?) that are shaped like letters "U", "M" and "E" for UME! ...>
Main playroom has a boat you can climb into and drive (handles and buttons make noise), a food market/kitchen area, riding toys, dress up corner, a teepee, etc.
A wall of clouds separate the play space and the cafe. There is a row of tables just other side of the cloud windows. There parents can work on their computers or have a coffee while children play. Or everyone can have a snack or lunch in the cafe.
Pink upside down umbrellas!
A separate room houses a giant trampoline and other gymnastics equipment like balance beam, mats, tunnels, etc.
Even though we were not here for an actual birthday party, my family had a great fun time here at UME!
