For local parents who enjoy taking their children to Giggles, the indoor recreation area designed for toddlers in Downtown Cranford, there are ways to save on its playtime experiences. The owner Kinga Keaveney offers monthly memberships and discounted 10-play packs for its repeat customers.

Keaveney said she opened Giggles because she felt families needed a fun, clean play area that both the kids and parents {they have stellar coffee} would enjoy, according to an interview with the Cranford Downtown Business & Economic Development Office.

Giggles has recently added a new play pirate ship and ride-in cars to its cadre of kid-approved features. Spanish storytime and STEM activities each week also remain a big draw.

But, according to Keaveney, birthday parties are its big business, often hosting between 10-20 parties each month.
