The bubble machine is awesome, surrounding yourself with a bubble has never been more John Travolta. The little marketplace is where my kids had the best time, putting fruit and food in their carts and checking out with the child playing cashier.

Although it is a little pricey, $7 per person, 2 and up - every 3rd Thursday, the kids c...
