In a nutshell: This is a cool place and I’d love to come back when Baby C is a little older. She is definitely a little young for the kinds of activities and play the Crayola Factory offers. I wanted to stay and look around and explore more of the place, but C was about ready for her lunch and nap and I wanted to avoid a meltdown. AND it was crazy crowded. Like nuts crazy. Like… OMG get-me-out-of-here-before-I-have-a-meltdown.
Easton is about an hour’s drive from our house, and I wanted to leave so that we’d get there right when the place opened (which the Crayola Factory site recommends). But of course we got a late start and that didn’t happen.
Tip: you can buy your tickets online and either print them out or have them waiting for you at the front desk. I would totally recommend doing this! We didn’t and we had a long line to wait on when we first got there (though the line moved pretty quickly). Their site also lists some of the busiest times of the year … hmmm, Winter Break is on there… could December 29 be considered Winter Break? Perhaps.
On our way home I was trying to think of a good time to visit when it might not be as busy… maybe in September when most kids are going back to school? We’ll see if I think she would be able to handle this next September!
