Last week we made it over to the Tot Spot for only the second time this year. I wish we could make it more often, as the kids always have a great time when we are there. If you are unfamiliar with the Tot Spot, it's a wonderful indoor play area at the Ithaca Youth Bureau for children 5 and under. The Tot Spot isn't a drop-off place, parents and care providers stay with their kids.
The Tot Spot has slides, ride on toys, balls, small toys, books, a kitchen and more. What's more, the Tot Spot employees usually bring out the parachute, and sometimes large pieces of paper and markers. It's a great place to escape the winter blues! Plus, all the toys are sanitized before they're put away each day.
The Tot Spot has new hours as of this January. They are no longer open Sunday afternoons, but they are open Mondays now.
