Life-size Strollers, Gum and Pets are not allowed in The Big Playhouse. I would recommend leaving the stroller in your car and wear a baby carrier instead or bring in car seat. It is not sanitary and presents hazard to the children.

All parking for THE BIG PLAYHOUSE is in the rear of the building, NOT in the parking lot located on side of the building.

Can I bring my second child if they were not invited to the party?

At Private Birthday Parties, only the guests that are invited should attend, not the siblings of the guests. Only the siblings of the Birthday child are allowed to attend. We planned for a certain number of children for the event and some children may not receive "Goody Bags", Food or Drinks, etc. This creates an awkward situation for the family and the BIRTHDAY child.

At our private parties in Westwood stenos (open fire) or any other heating devices for your food are not allowed.
