Celebrate a Year of Play on Troost

Bring another family Dec. 27-29 & you'll both play for free!

It's our first birthday at 55th and Troost ... and we have a birthday present for YOU!

One year ago, Planet Play opened a pop-up play site in donated space at 55th and Troost. We fell in love with the families who came to play with us and the welcoming community around us, so we leased 5504 Troost to have a permanent PlaySpace in the Troost Corridor!

As a thank-you gift to you for playing with us over the past year, we will be open on December 27, 28 and 29 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. ... and, if you bring another family to introduce them to Planet Play, BOTH of your families will receive free admission for all of your family members on all three days!

Gather your neighbors, visiting relatives, and family friends, and bring them to 5504 Troost on December 27-29! You may come together or meet up at Planet Play. Help us spread the word about Planet Play and launch our second year at 55th and Troost! Thanks for sharing the fun!

Coming in January: Children's Yoga Circle

We are excited to partner with Amanda Garner of Yogi Community to offer Children's Yoga Circle starting in January at Planet Play! We hope you'll join us for Children's Yoga Circle on January 11 and on the second Saturday of each month!
