(10/30/2011) Received update on Tiny Town many thanks to Gramma Kaye-

Carousel and Train rides are now $3.00 each. Adult rides free if child does not meet height requirement. We had a blast at the play area last week. Note to visitors – no shoes allowed in play area and equipment is slick. Highly recommend bringing grippy socks along.
Love your site, great info! I am currently amassing a list of PGs to visit with my 2 1/2 y.o. great-granddaughter.

250 Woodbridge Center Drive, Woodbridge, NJ.  Tel: (732) 636-4600. This is one of the bigger free play areas I have visited with options to buy tickets ($3- as of 10/30/2011) for the carousel or mini-train. I was very impressed with the family focus at this mall. Photos begin with a Santa Parade on 11/13 (this was 2008). Have pets?  Santa takes pictures with them too, starting on 11/17/2008.

Along with the regular Santa pictures, for the month of December, they will be having a special feature with special mobile equipment that kids can control (it is featured at Jersey Gardens already).

Thanks to Amy Bellisano for allowing me to take photographs and giving me a personal tour to Woodbridge Center, a very family-friendly mall.

Make a Day of It: (from Sara) For a mall playground this one is a lot of fun. I can get my kids to put up with a fair amount of shopping with the promise of a train or carousel ride at the end. And, of course, there are ice cream and cookies to be had, even a Burger King on site (very important to my picky eaters).
