Yes. We offer options for private play reservations and group events. Private reservations of the entire play boutique are available for you and your invited guests only. Group events are open to the public but limited to a certain number of participants and require a pre-purchased ticket. Please see our “Designer Play Experiences Menu” page to book a private reservation or book your spot at one of our group events.
Of course! We encourage you to invite friends to your private play reservation. Splitting the cost of the reservation amongst the group is a great way to get an amazing play experience at a huge discount.
COST WE DON’T HANDLE: We do not handle splitting the overall cost of the reservation. It is up to the individual making the reservation to pay FUNovation Station directly at the time of booking the reservation. It is also up to that individual to collect the divided cost of the reservation from invited friends.
COST WE DO HANDLE: When more than 6 children are invited to the play reservation, we will collect the money on the day of the reservation from any individuals over the admitted 6 children. Please note the additional cost per child when making the play reservation. This cost applies to all ages. Children will not be permitted to enter without payment. Adults are FREE.
Yes! There is a designated area specifically for snacks/drinks. Food and drinks are to be consumed in the designated area only. Food and drink are not allowed to be consumed in the play area for sanitation purposes.
Parent supervision is required. We loving say that FUNovation Station is not a stop-and-drop, it’s a stay-and-play. One goal of FUNovation Station is to create relationships. These relationships can only be made with parental presence.
We understand the convenience of strollers. However, we want to protect the magic of imaginative play and that magic requires floor room for play guests. For this reason, strollers are allowed when there are 10 or less play guests. If there are more play guests, strollers will be asked to be placed in the front sitting area on the front porch.
Majority of the sets are aimed at 6 months- 10 years. However, children up through 13 years enjoy the opportunity to engage in the various kinds of play promoted by FUNovation Station. Children of all ages are attracted to the diversity of play and the carefully selected items. Adults, also, find themselves lost in an imaginary world without a care in the world.
Children of all ages need to be supervised by the individual bringing them to the play boutique. Choking is a possibility if children put small items in their mouth.
FUNovation Station’s play experience is the result of years of research from professionals specializing in early childhood development, speech-language pathologists, occupational therapists, physical therapists, school administrators, elementary teachers, middle school teachers, and high school teachers. Parents can rest assure that every single item in the boutique has been strategically placed to promote specific cognitive skills, language skills, fine and gross motor skills. No other play area has assembled such a diverse team of educational professionals.
A second distinguishing factor is that the luxury playsets featured in the FUNovation Station were custom-designed by local educational professionals. The sets were then custom-built by a local craftsman. FUNovation Station’s goal is to promote locally-sourced talent and businesses.
A third distinguishing factor is the relationship FUNovation Station has with the local I.S.D. FUNovation Station offers opportunities for high school students to obtain real-world experience through providing educational and extra-curricular programs to younger students. FUNovation Station is a proud supporter of local I.S.D.
Kids! Colt and Makenzi Nelson, aged 10 and 8 respectively, wanted to pick a name that did not sound “baby-ish” (their term). They both agreed that kids want to have fun and that “FUN” should be in the name. Play encourages children to make creations, innovations, and explorations. Therefore, combining FUN with -ovations seemed only right. FUNovation Station met Colt and Makenzi’s approval.
