Looking for a great INDOOR play place for your little one to beat the hot (and cold) weather of our great Las Vegas? Check out all that Kidville has to offer! They are located in Tivoli Village right off of Summerlin Pkwy and Rampart and have classes for ages 0-6 years and in all sorts of fun and exciting topics: music, science, dance, art, preschool, movement, sports, and of course the best kid gym in town! In addition to birthday parties and weekly classes, Kidville also has a great little boutique and a kid salon, complete with a great atmosphere and environment for getting those locks of love all cut, styled, and in place!
I took my 4 year old and 2 year old to check out some music, movement, dancing, arts and crafts! They loved the overview of all the classes, but there was no denying that their favorite part of the whole Kidville experience was by far the free play in the totally amazing kid gym! Where else can little kids jump around on trampolines, swing on uneven bars, hop through the soft building blocks, zip across the room on a zip line, and dance dance dance while being completely entranced by magical bubbles? They LOVE the kid gym!
Good news for you! You have a chance to win a half semester of classes offered at KIDVILLE (class starts Feb 25th and ends the week of April 22nd). It is a $210 value, includes a 1/2 semester PLUS a PLATINUM Membership which allows for unlimited play time at the gym throughout your half-semester!
For the half-semester deal: This would be good for Winter 2013 only! Winner can sign up in any available class in the appropriate age group. Remember: Age groups are newborns to 6 years old!

Do you realize that summer is coming and that means your kids WON’T be in school, but WILL need something to do? Okay, I won’t remind you anymore, but I will let you in on a little secret= Kidville is the exciting new place located in Tivoli Village (Rampart and Alta, just south of Summerlin Parkway) that has art, music, dance, sports, gymnastics, science, and enrichment classes for kiddos up to age 6. Oh and Kidville even has the coolest indoor playspace my kids have ever seen! Not only can your kiddo take a class here at Kidville Las Vegas, but how about a hair cut, new clothes, maybe have a birthday party, or even do a SUMMER CAMP?
Waiting Patiently for Class!
I’m Amanda the LV Grocery Smarts Coupon Geek and I am part of the Vegas Bloggers go to camp with Kidville Las Vegas. This means I got the opportunity for my 4 year old BOY to attend the Savvy Science class at Kidville and to blog about our experience so I will start from the beginning:
A phone call to figure out how to get there, because I’ve never been to 1-Kidville and 2-Tivoli Village! The office staff members were very friendly and knowledgeable on the phone and gave me great directions! Enter Tivoli Village from Alta! Turn right at the roundabout and drive in a horseshoe shape to get to the parking garage. If you park in the free underground parking lot and park in Row C you can take the elevators up and be right inside the Kidville store! Awesome!
The Savvy Science Class Chart
The activity for the day’s Savvy Science Class was on the food pyramid and discussing/ drawing/ eating/ and interacting with all sorts of foods that go into making a healthy salad. This hour long class was really enjoyed by all the 4 year old participants. As a former teacher I was also impressed with the learning activities that engaged the students and really get them to the goal of understanding the role of the food pyramid in our daily lives and being able to explain what they were learning. The kids started by telling each other and the 2 teachers what they already knew about different kinds of foods, which foods were healthy and which foods were not!
Today's Science Lesson- Making a Salad!
They drew foods with crayons on the butcher paper table covering- which they loved! They each took turns placing their play food on the Velcro large food pyramid that was at the front of the class and did very well to identify to which food group their food belonged. Of course the class wouldn’t be complete with out actually eating some real food! The kids helped create their own salads- complete with veggies of course, and other edible components (croutons, oil dressing, tomato, etc) that represented each of the food groups! My 4 year old got done and asked when he gets to go to class again! He absolutely enjoyed the class (and being away from his big brother and little sister). I loved that he was getting individualized attention from well trained (and well educated) teachers and that it was a class that he was genuinely interested in the whole time he was there!
Actively Engaged in His Savvy Science Class
The awesome thing about this class is that it is part of the Kidville Summer Camp program and the focus activity is always changing, meaning your kid won’t do the same science lesson twice during the summer camp!

We also took a tour of the all the spaces and places at Kidville and loved the different rooms- there’s large classrooms for hands on science and art classes. These are also the birthday rooms to host all your favorite friends for an afternoon of pure enjoyment! The studio hosts awesome musical shows complete with puppets and singing and dancing! Our favorite spot was the kid gym!
Zooming on the Zip Line
Kidville has a huge kid gym (well, 2 huge kid gyms actually) where you can drop in for some free-play in their indoor play spaces. My little 1 year old was right beside my big 6 year old trying out all the apparatus and wearing herself out! I didn’t mind!
Teacher to Student Ratio= AWESOME!
I'm a Big Kid Now!
And the play space doesn’t get very packed with kiddos so even the littlest ones can play safely in the gym! There’s a rock climbing wall, big soft climbing equipment (like what you’d find in a gymnastics class), a zip line, uneven bars, basketball hoops, trampoline, big movable soft building blocks, and the best part- a teacher who’s in there to help with supervision (and to lift kids up to get on the zip line over and over and over again)!
Check out our video of the indoor playspace (it takes a few seconds to load):
Kidville is the perfect away from home activity, because it really isn’t far (great freeway access), the whole place is air conditioned, and it has such a variety of activities and classes that really any kid could enjoy there time here! Spending an afternoon just letting the kids play in the indoor play space or having them participate in a safe summer camp is so desirable! Kidville is also close to many little eateries and shops that you as a parent could enjoy some retail therapy while your kiddo is busy wearing them self out (yes, many Kidville classes allow you to drop off your kid)- so it is the best of both worlds! All in all we (yes, even me the mom) had an awesome adventure at Kidville and can’t wait to go back!
