This just in from Roxy’s e-mailbag…. Time In in Randolph, NJ is out of business.  For those of you with a kid’s birthday party already scheduled (and cancelled) at Time In, you may want to consider Randolph Gymnastics, right across the street (Middlebury Boulevard) in Randolph, NJ. Our family first discovered Randolph Gymnastics at a pre-school birthday party there back in the Fall of 2004. Since then, our girls have enjoyed the giant slide, tarzan rope and jumping castle with their friends at countless Randolph Gymnastics birthday parties. More importantly, we were inspired by the amazing “Olympic size” facilities to start gymnastics classes, and this year marks London and Maddie’s fourth year of lessons at Randolph Gymnastics. If you’re interested in hosting your child’s birthday party at Randolph Gymnastics, call (973) 584-4111, ask for Shannon, the manager, and tell ‘em Roxy sent you… you’ll save $50 off the price of a Sunday birthday party. Speaking from experience, I can also say that Sunday, particularly late morning into early afternoon, is the best time for a gymnastics birthday party. It just feels a lot less hectic than weekday evenings or Saturdays, and I’ve enjoyed catching up with the other parents while our kids get their ya-yas out with the exceptional staff of Randolph Gymnastics.

Since London and Maddie had two friends’ birthday parties to attend this past weekend, kids’ birthday party have been on my mind. I shared a list of our family’s faves over on my statewide Roxy’s Best Of… New Jersey site, but wanted to add a bit more detail to each of the kids’ birthday party venues.

We spent a lot of time in Time In during London and Maddie’s toddler and pre-school years, when climbing for an hour in a safe, padded environment followed by pizza, hot dogs, and birthday cake, was just their speed, and the Roxiticus Desperate Housewives could catch up on the latest gossip while our kids played together. When we went back to Time In last June for a 7-year-old girl’s “late-over” birthday party on a Saturday night, however, it was clear that our girls, as well as everyone at the party, had outgrown Time In. Free Willy on the enormous HDTV couldn’t save the day, and our family couldn’t get out of there fast enough.

Even though my little girls are growing up, I’ve become conscious that there are plenty of Morris County parents who need toddler and pre-school activities, and Time In’s impressive play and party center offers a clean, safe, climate controlled environment for young children to play, imagine, create or just have fun. Imaginations soar while the kids burn off energy through jumping, climbing, bouncing and sliding on Time In’s soft play area.  Visitors will also discover a wide open play area featuring a large matted area for tumbling, building or just getting a little silly. For the littlest ones, Time In offers an infant area where parents can relax and play safely with their child.

London and Maddie enjoyed Time In for birthday parties, group play dates with their Westmont Montessori classmates, and open play on a rainy afternoon.

Time In, 4 Middlebury Road, Randolph, NJ 07869. Phone: (973) 927-7800
