If you have ever been to Joso’s North location, you will find that the south location seems very familiar.
We went to Joso’s on a Saturday morning. It was fairly busy but we were still able to find spots to sit on the bench along the side.
The main attraction is a short 4 level climber. It will accommodate adults if necessary but it is more kid sized.
The climber features tunnels and a ‘bridge’.
As well as bumpers and small slides.
My daughter loved the ball area but it is not too big so it can quickly get crowded.
My son is 6 and found the climber to be a little underwhelming but my 3 year old loved it.
At the far end of the play area by the bathrooms is a baby area. They have a small climber with slide, activity tables, exersaucers and foam blocks.
This area can get crowded pretty quickly especially since the bathrooms are also accessed from this spot. For the most part the toys were in good working order with batteries. The books were in pretty rough shape and one of the exersaucers was missing a few parts (it also happened to be Robbie’s favorite).
Towards the front, there’s a small area with a few plasma cars for the kids to ride on.
My kids enjoyed this but it didn’t hold their attention for a long time.
Joso’s serves ice cream, snacks, drinks as well as a few lunch options like grilled cheese sandwiches and quesadillas.
Joso’s is a great place for mobile babies, toddlers and preschoolers. It would be particularly good for families who have a mobile baby and a toddler or preschooler. The play place is small enough so that it is easy to keep track of your older child while you stay with your baby.
