Ready Set Play! Indoor Playground is a wonderful play area that children and parents will love. It’s smaller than most play areas but even with a variety of activities on a busy day, there is room for your kids to have fun.


We visited on a weekday at the Paradise Valley Mall location with our three year old. He loved exploring all the different activities! (The photos are from the PV Mall play area.) Here’s what you’ll find at Ready, Set, Play!:

  • A small ball pit
  • A bouncy house
  • Mini push cars and bikes
  • A play kitchen with food
  • Dress up clothes
  • A large cube shelf with different toys (trucks, Magnatiles, baby items, dinosaurs, etc)
  • A baby area with appropriate toys (it is not sectioned off)
  • And more! Stop by and see!

There are restrooms, a small eating area, and a cube shelf for personal items. You are welcome to bring your own snacks and drinks and they have some snacks available for purchase as well.

As a mom, there are two reasons to the play area. First, there is seating scattered around so parents can take a break when needed. Second is the TV monitor near the tables – it shows a view of the front, so you can keep an eye on your child without moving! So helpful.
