Kids struck it big this past year in Seattle. Innovative companies opened, new playgrounds sprouted up, trendy hangouts moved into town and new indoor play spaces took tots by storm. Here are our picks for the 15 best things to arrive on the Seattle kiddie scene in 2015.

Roo’s World of Discovery

We know it can be hard to find an indoor play space that caters to tykes with developmental delays. And finding one that isn’t overwhelmed by large crowds, bright lights and colors and noise levels can be even harder. That’s why we were super excited for the opening of Roo’s World of Discovery in the fall of 2015. This new play space in downtown Kirkland is where little joeys can play and feel welcome, no matter what their developmental level. And it’s where kids with special needs will find a calm and relaxing environment that encourages peaceful, playful learning.
