I live on the Kenai Peninsual and we will be in Anchorage for 4 days this coming up week. So I was wondering what are the toddler-friendly activities (15 month old, walking well) we can participate in? Such as storytimes at libraries, playgroups outdoors/indoors, toddler friendly parks and anything else you can think of.
Additionally, we are doing some shopping. I am looking for a carrier for my toddler and would like to try out some brands I have in mind. Are there any shops that have them on stock? I recall there being a new story on Diamond and I know about Kid-to-Kid on Diamond and Once Upon a Child, any other stores I should be aware of?
Thanks so much!
The Anchorage Museum at Rasmusum (Sp?) center has a great interactive kids area! Some things are a bit 'old' for a toddler but there is also a play area.
Bouncin' Bears, or other, indoor playscapes with those big inflatable slides & such.
We like to spend time in the toy stores that have 'display' tables where the kids can play with the toys. LOL I think Over The Rainbow might be a good one to check out?
Lots of parks & playgrounds if you want to be outdoors.
that's about all I can think of. We live in Wasilla so Anchorage area is not my expertise.
There's Spoiled Boutique on Dimond, but I've never been in there... maybe call ahead. There's a new park being dedicated on Friday by Westchester Lagoon. Agree that the imaginarium has a good kids display. there's arctic playgroundz indoor playground... depends on the age of your kiddo, really.
