Marbles opens new group-free space for toddlers

Posted July 2, 2012

I know what it's like to take a toddler to Marbles Kids Museum in Raleigh on a very busy day when school groups or camps are there too.

It can be a bit crazy as you chase your toddler between packs of other kids. And it can be a bit overwhelming for little ones too.

Well, apparently other parents have shared similar experiences with Marbles, which is now opening a new area called Toddlers Hollow, designed for group-free developmental play for children under three. It opens Wednesday.

"We've heard you!," Marbles staff wrote in an email about the new exhibit.

According to Marbles, toddlers three and under are invited to "discover the magic of the woods and explore woodland critters at their own pace."

Kids can practice crawling, walking and balancing on a meandering bridge, uncover a pixie hideaway and dress up as a forest creature.

Toddlers Hollow takes over the former Storybook Forest.

    Is there a day of the week that groups cannot attend Marbles? I have older kids and I get tired of being overrun by groups everywhere we go.
