Every once and awhile, the Cute Potato team has the opportunity to check out a family venue that’s new and fun. Enterprising mom Kara Dowling, who we highlighted in the past for her handmade stationery, invited us to visit The Rumpus Room—a wonderful, indoor play space in Brunswick for infants through age 6.
MP and the kids were instantly smitten upon arrival. CP#1 and #2 didn’t know where to play first. The main room alone has a dome climbing structure, a ball pit (which a professional crew cleans every day), a Cedar Works wooden gym, and an impressive pirate ship. This room alone could keep the kids occupied for hours.
But of course, we were tempted to visit the next room, which is filled with all sorts of fun play things. CP#1 and #2 especially loved the Farmer’s Market, which displayed all sorts of wooden fruits and vegetables for MP to buy.
CP#2 meandered over to the dress up box, while his sister ran off to give the castle bounce house a try. And if that weren’t enough to keep them busy, The Rumpus Room also has a playhouse, reading and puzzle room, train table, and coloring station.
As you can imagine, it was hard to get CP#1 and #2 to leave this fun play space. MP gave them the 5-minute warning, and took in the kinds of things adults notice. The Rumpus Room is remarkably clean, there are bathrooms easily accessible from the second room, and there’s a tidy snack area with kid-sized picnic tables. Parents will find a Keurig coffee maker, so caffeine is always available (thank you, Kara)! Healthy snacks, like GoGo squeeZ and Clif Bars, are also for sale in case you’ve forgotten to bring your own.
With all these enticing options available, the team is certain to return soon. And, oh, did we mention? Look to the right. The Rumpus Room is our sponsor all this month. We’re so happy to have them join us!
