Now that has been said.... Today, we visited the Brooklyn Children's Museum. This museum is a child size version of Brooklyn. The exhibits reflected the different cultures and habitats of Brooklyn. It has areas like a West African Import Store, Pizzeria, swamp land and Caribbean Travel Agency. Almost all the stations had a coloring crafty activity. Coloring and drawing are Big Bea and Little Al's favorite.
There was one down fall about this museum. There is a Totally Tots exhibit meant for children 5 & under and their parents. Any child 6 & over are not allowing in this area......O_o What?
Yep, only Big and Little Al are allowed to enter this area. There is a window showing all the fun. :-( I could have been a terrible mother and left Big Bea out in the cold... but I didn't ... we all missed out on the fun... I understand wanting an area for early childhood activities but what about families where not all the children are in early childhood. What about the children in early adolescence? Thumbs down to this area.
This museum is sensory friendly. The tunnel with a very long water fall is very relaxing. Loud noise were at a minium. Transition were very easy to handle. Family bathrooms made life easier with Mr.Potty Training.
We discovered a great toy while at the gift shop. The company that make them is called Sprig Toys. These toys are the ultimate eco-friendly toys. They are made from bits of recycled plastic and reclaimed sawdust. The have no paint, no BPA and battery free. It's powered by imagination. Big Al got the Dolphin Explorer Boat set. Perfect for bath time for kids in early childhood and early adolescence.
PS... I only have 20 school days until summer vacation... I can't wait!!!!
