As a former elementary school teacher, I am always looking for educational ideas to entertain my 5 year old daughter. Last week, we were lucky enough to be invited to Tiny Town Play Lounge located in Northville, Michigan.

A view of some of the different places located in town.

As “Townies” you are invited to use your imagination by exploring an actual town that includes a theater, town market, pet hospital, kitchen area, & tiny couture store. All the different places include dress-up clothing, toys, and activities that will help your child development cognitively. Furthermore, by playing together your child will enhance their language and problem solving skills.

This area is designated for infants and crawlers, extremely safe and germ-free.


While visiting Tiny Town children of all ages can enjoy the trampoline, Lego area, or bubble tree. Infants and toddlers can also enjoy a separate play area that remains very clean and germ-free. The owner, Jennifer has conveniently placed ‘slobber buckets’ throughout town. These are used to allow employees to sanitize them, just in case your child puts a toy in their mouth.  Socks are worn by everyone at all times, and available to borrow in case you forget yours.

Tiny Town offers this exciting area where boys and girls can play with cars, trains, Legos, & more.

Some may think Tiny Town is small at 3,200-square-feet, but that was exactly the idea that owner, Jennifer Assaf had in mind. She said she wanted a place where parents could bring their kids, suitable for 6 years and younger to interact with them while socializing with other parents at the same time. (However, older kids are welcomed). She liked the idea of keeping the place smaller, because she wants to allow all Townies to enjoy a snack, coffee, or free Wi-Fi while still being able to keep a close eye on their children.

My 5 yr old, Dr. Kelsey, enjoyed the pet hospital most where she was able to see X-rays of animals and dress-up as a real veterinarian.

Tiny Town offers 3 different types of parties for your child. All information can be found by following this link.

Parties are reasonable and can offer things such as pizza, balloons, and juice. Lastly, Tiny Town offers beverages, snacks, and a store filled with educational toys. To read more about Tiny Town, Please visit their web site at

We have taken our little one to mayburry farm to learn about the animals. We count and sing the abc’s in the car!

My little guy is just 6 months old, so we’ve been giving him lots of opportunities to flex his crawling skills, try new foods, and experience his new world!

I have tried to keep the kids outdoors and moving as much as possible. We have used the resources in our community (parks, metroparks, libraries and more) I am now looking to Pinterest to include some activities that get them ready for school and celebrate summer as well
