I could just reiterate what the website for https://www.junglejavaplay.com Jungle Java claims. Because really, it’s all true. It’s clean, safe, fun. I’m lucky because I live close to the Farmington Hills location. I take my five year old there. OFTEN. It’s truly one of the only places I can take him where I don’t worry. I meet friends, we sit, drink coffee and chat, while our kids run wild in a contained environment. I don’t mind taking him by myself, either. They offer free wifi and for me, a blogger, there is nothing better! My son is entertained somewhere other than in front of a video game and I can blissfully blog!
They have a wonderful play structure that entertains for hours. Also, there is a toddler area which is enclosed. It’s also separate from the bigger kid area. So moms don’t have to worry about their babies being run down by an enthusiastic preschooler! The toddler area has very comfy couches surrounding it, so parents can sit comfortably, read the paper and relish in the fact that their youngster is going to be so tired from playing at Jungle Java that it will ensure a long nap time!
The only thing I am not crazy about is there are no supervisors in the play structure monitoring for bullying and aggression. Also, it gets very loud and wild during lunchtime hours.
Jungle Java has a varied menu with delicious and healthy food choices for both adults and children alike. They also boast a wonderful coffee menu from Portland Roasting Coffee.
Children can also have their birthday parties at Jungle Java and they have different party packages for parents to chose from.
Kids love it here. Parents love it. So visit your nearest Jungle Java. But remember, you’ll need to go home eventually!
