Playology - the art and science of learning through play

At first glance, we’re a fun place to take the kids to play for the day. There are many different play areas to explore, new friends to meet, and hundreds of smiles and laughs to share with our itty bitties. But deeper down, the true purpose of Itty Bitty City is to provide an environment that encourages development and learning through these many experiences.

Some parts of the City will change on a regular basis, because new fun is good fun, and some parts will always be the same, because kids love repetition too.  Add in special events, workshops, and classes for children and their parents, grandparents, and caregivers, and ta-da! If you’re looking for things to do with your kids in Springfield, we think you’ll find it here.

We invite you to take a tour to learn more about our various play spaces, including their features and their educational value (but don’t tell the kids!).
