Pottery Barn Kids

There are kitchen sets to explore, puzzles to solve, and comfy rockers and furniture for moms to try out while supervising the fun. They also often hold in-store entertainment events for kids, which are fun if you can hit those.


Hello, you can drop them off in the play zone! And there's a restaurant there too, which means moms can actually have a meal in peace if they so choose.

Home Depot

The aisles are wide, the ceilings are high, and there's just so much to explore. They also have fun workshops on Saturdays in which kids get to do all sorts of fun projects.


It's almost like a zoo, with no admission price.


They have everything, and you can chat and shop while the kids roam the aisle. Organize a scavenger hunt if you're extra ambitious. Bonus: Many of them have Starbucks and snack bars to boot.

Which stores would you add to the list?

Home depot is definitely my favorite! My kids love it and don't constantly beg to leave like they do in other stores.

Barnes and Noble is another decent one. Youcan pick up some books, get a snack for the kiddos and take them to the kids area to play with the train table.

I know there are others, I'll have to think about it.
