You Won’t Believe What Happened At This Kid’s Play Center – But It Involved Jello Wrestling

73345_460953703975379_963581712_nWhen my kids were smaller I used to take advantage of those kids play centers where you could drop your kids off for a few hours while you went shopping or to a grownup movie or you just wanted some time without someone demanding you watch another episode of Little Bill. These places are usually well staffed with tons of junk to keep kids amused, ball pits, slides, and other kid friendly junk. They are great if you don’t use traditional daycare but want to let your kids get their ya-yas out for a while. But it seems like this play center located in Melford, New York wanted grownups to be able to get their ya-yas out too, so they hosted an adults only ‘pajama party.’

Complete with Twister games, ‘tasteful nudity’, body painting, Jello wrestling and body painting. All in structures like this:

Which turned into this:

The flyer for the party, according to CBS Local, read:

“THIS IS JUST GOOD CLEAN WHOLESOME FUN. There will be no orgy, smut, strippers, or sexually lewd content …… however… there will be tasteful nudity.. feety pajamas…and probably little nighties,” the invitation said.

 

The Krazy Kidz of Medford play center has “cleaned and disinfected” their business but as you guessed it, people on Facebook are still pretty cranky about a kid’s childcare facility hosting the adults only blowout :

I can understand why parents are pissed. Who wants to think of your toddler shoving balls from a ball pit in their mouth that have been next to some weird dude’s balls? But if the business is doing a thorough cleaning and disinfecting everything I guess I don’t see what the big deal is. Judging from the posts on Facebook, Krazy Kidz won’t be allowing more adult slumber parties to go on and will go back to being a kid’s only facility.

I would just bring a lot of hand santizier with.

      This isn’t far from me – and while I am not a parent – I don’t understand all the rage and disgust. No kids were there – and really, kids are disgusting enough. If you are worried about germs, you shouldn’t be bringing your kids there at all, regardless of the adult party. Ball pits are pretty impossible to clean, so you are surrounded by bodily fluids anyway.

      Eve, this article made my day. Morning cup of coffee and this article–how can anyone not giggle at trials and tribulations of American suburbia?

        How DARE you suggest that this is trivial? The woman in the picture had booty shorts on, K. BOOTY SHORTS.

        Meh.

        Now, if she’d been at Chuck E. Cheese, that would have been an anathema. Booty shorts in a classy joint like that? Heavens, what has happened to social decency?!

    • ShanLea

      Although it wouldn’t bother me, I can see some people getting upset. But seriously, my first thought was “How fun would it be to party on the kids toys?”

      • http://Mommyish.com/ Eve Vawter

        (I may have thought the same thing)

      • ShanLea

        I’ll pass on the tasteful nudity though, but maybe just because it’s -15F here this morning, and I’m trying to figure out how to run errands, have coffee with a friend, and hit family night at church without ever taking off my fleece pajamas and comically oversized hoodie!

        This is why I love JumpStreet, which is just a big ass warehouse full of trampolines. Up on the wall, errthang. They have a kid’s section and a not kid’s section, and I like to neglect my kid to go jumo.

    • Bic

      Well, it’s not that bad. Especially since when I read the headline I thought this was going to be about children being forced to wrestle in jello with adults betting on them. Toddler death match sort of thing, it’s all quite tame in comparison really.

      • http://Mommyish.com/ Eve Vawter

        man, I wanna see this

      • Kay_Sue

        I thought that too, when I first read the headline, and then it was like, No effing way could you convince toddlers to wrestle in jello. They’d be too busy eating it.

      • http://Mommyish.com/ Eve Vawter

        we need to round up some babies, I will make jello

      • ShanLea

        Mine would totally be up for it, because he’s kind of a violent little turd, but it’s usually reserved for me.

      • Kay_Sue

        Mine will eat the jello. He’s a poor test subject.

      • ted3553

        Mine too. the only shoving from him would be to get someone out of the way so he could eat the jello they’re standing on

    • Kay_Sue

      I watched our neighbor’s child–who is ten, by the way–do something so disgusting the other day that I won’t even share. Legitimately, it was that horrifyingly awful, and I am going to leave you all to fill in the blanks with your personal nightmares because I am not willing to relive the trauma of relaying it. #SelflessParentRightHereYo

      Anyway, my point is–NOTHING these adults did could be remotely as disgusting as what kids naturally subject themselves to. That’s dead serious. Nothing they did would be as gross as the thought that there could be kids who did the same damn thing mentioned (kind of) above and not washing their hands and then touching things my kids touch…things I touch…

      Dear God, I need some Germ-X. And a shower.

        My kid has eaten poop. :/ My brother also got fired as a teen from Chuck E Cheese for humping customers IN COSTUME. Derp.

      • Kay_Sue

        The image of Chuck E Cheese humping people is hilarious.

        It was not poop, which would be gross too, and maybe grosser than this? My kid has ingested poop accidentally before (fingers down diaper, into mouth while in the carseat rearfacing) and it wasn’t as gross as that experience to me. I think it was the lack of hand-washing afterwards that did it for me. When Big A (my oldest) had his poop incident, we were mortified and cleaned everything (including him) until it shined. But this kid? Just kept doing it. *shudders*

      • ShanLea

        Oh, the mental pictures from the costume humping…I just can’t with that!

        I was a costume character at HersheyPark. No one ever got in trouble for humping me. :(

      • aliceblue

        Don’t know what type of costume they wear at HershyPark. However, if it was a chocolate bar and you could find me at the right time of the month, humping would be a distinct possibility.

      • http://www.gamedevwidow.weebly.com/ Theresa Edwards

        I was a Hershey Kiss, because I was too small to fit the other ones. My BFF was the Hershey Syrup/Kit Kat Bar. We had chocolate colored leggings so I also have a lot of bite scars on my calves from little kids who could really suspend their disbelief.

      • Lee

        I have never shared this with anyone because it is so embarrassing. I caught the boy with a cat turd in his mouth when he was around one. The dog had brought it in the living room. I was horrified and couldn’t stop crying and laughing as my husband swiped it out. He thought thought I went crazy. Talk about parent fail.

        Mommyish Confession Time:
        When I was old enough to know better but still most definitely a kid, ON A DOUBLE DOG DARE, I licked the bones of a dead bird My friends found in a park. To this day it’s one of the things I’ve done that churns my stomach.

      • Megan Zander

        Oh thank god, I have been holding on to this since last week, but I found twin b with a turd in his hand and chewing on something that he wouldn’t let me pry out. I had recently changed his brother. I thought I was the only one and felt like a total and epic failure.

      • http://www.twitter.com/ohladyjayne allisonjayne

        My stepdad ate poop by accident! Apparently my oldest sister was a crawling baby at the time, and he saw her heading towards a little thing on the floor that he for some reason assumed was a raisin….he grabbed it and popped it in his mouth before she could get to it. Yeah, not a raisin. Tiny turd.

      • Bethany Ramos

        NEVER assume raisin or cookie crumb or…

      • LiteBrite

        My son ate goose poop once. He was barely age 1. We went for a walk in mid fall, and the stroller went through some goose poop on the sidewalk. We got home, I take the boy out, and grab something in the kitchen to see the kid picking the goose poop off the stroller wheels and shoving it in his mouth. I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. (I’m pretty sure I did both.)

        He’s now six, so I assumed he survived. But…..ugh. GROSS.

      • Kay_Sue

        Dang. I don’t want to get banned.

        But read further at your own risk, like seriously.

        Really. Not kidding.

        Basically the kid blew his nose repeatedly in his hand, dipped his fingers in, and licked them clean. Over and over again. It was seriously disgusting. I’ve seen some STUFF, you know what I mean, you are all moms–but that was the worst. The absolute worst, in my personal experience.

        And now I have relived it, and I’m going to avail myself my shower facilities and maybe some scalding hot water, because that child has been in my house before.

      • http://Mommyish.com/ Eve Vawter
      • Kay_Sue

        P.S.–I didn’t think you were really going to ban me, but I was seriously feeling guilty about not just saying it and leaving it to everyone’s imaginations.

      • http://Mommyish.com/ Eve Vawter

        idk, I was pretty excited to hear, so maybe the ban hammer which would have been funny for two minutes but then we would have missed you too much :(

      • Bunny Lucia

        I would have been so upset if you banned Kay Sue. We share dip recipes. D:

        Yeah I would have missed her too – we always agree on everything and she always upvotes all of my comments!!!

      • Kay_Sue

        Awww, you guys are making me blush, lol.

      • Kay_Sue

        Awesome dip recipes. The spinach and artichoke one was amazing!

      • Bunny Lucia

        I’m so glad you liked it. I made the mistake of not washing the spinach well enough and the entire dip tasted like dirty grass. It was an abomination and a waste of perfectly good artichokes

      • pineapplegrasss

        And now she’s shared the snot dip recipe with us ;)

      • Bethany Ramos

        CHEESE AND RICE!

      • ShanLea

        BRB puking now!

      • Kay_Sue

        See, I don’t want to say these reactions make me “happy”, because they don’t, I think I am going to hold a record for grossest comment two days in a row, but they do give me a sense of validation regarding my own very visceral and disgusted reaction….

      • http://www.gamedevwidow.weebly.com/ Theresa Edwards

        NO! Snot is disgusting. Snot is the most disgusting of disgusting things. I vurp when my kid does that thing where she like, snucks it all back in her throat. I would have straight up horked everywhere. Just—everywhere.

      • Kay_Sue

        I agree.

      • Paul White

        and here I thought it was something unusual…

      • Kay_Sue

        Not unusual. Just disgusting enough that I was reluctant to share.

      • http://www.twitter.com/ohladyjayne allisonjayne

        Oh my gosh, I have a story of a grown-up doing basically the same thing! I was at a fancy burger shop, and this dude was picking his nose and eating it while reading his paper, like super casual as if he was snacking on a bag of chips. THEN he blew his nose in his hand and licked it up.

      • That_Darn_Kat

        I was prepared for this…and still dry heaved. Thank you, I can now skip dinner. *shudder*. I was honestly thinking about a kid picking his butt, having poo, and licking it clean from his fingers….not sure which one is worse.

      • Maria Guido

        This comment is not allowed. Now we are all left to our sick imaginations – which have to be worse than what actually happened.

    • TwentiSomething Mom

      With all the sex, balls and bodily fluids going around this place is probably still a lot cleaner than Chuckee Cheese.

    • jane

      It’s probably wrong that when I read the headline I thought “toss the kids in a pool of Jello? That would be awesome. Birthday party idea!”

      Then, of course, I kept reading. Um, no.

    • Robotic Arms Dealer

      “tasteful nudity”? if the slides have a chocolate streak mark… I ain’t riskin it.

    • Paul White

      Ok, I do not get the outrage here. It wasn’t during normal hours and hte place got cleaned up afterwards FFS. Calm yourselves angry facebook posters!

    • Lee

      A place like this by my parents house used to do a weekly preteen night. This could not be any worse that horny, sweaty 13 year olds in dark tunnels and no one ever bitched about that.

    • Alfreda Wells Morrissey

      I’m confused. We have those gyms here, but parents are not allowed to drop their kids off, and we are allowed to go play with your kids. Do they have drop off ones in America? Are parents not allowed in?

      As for the adult party, maybe nudity and ball rooms are a bit gross, but I’m sure it is not any worse than what kids do in there. I think they are probably unsanitary anyway. Ours doesn’t really have the ball pins anymore anyway. Instead there is a room where you throw balls at each other, but not enough balls to fill the floor. There are guns that you can shoot the balls out of, which is pretty neat. Otherwise, it would not be that difficult to clean slides and stuff. You let your kid in your bedroom and I’m sure you do some naughty stuff in there when they are not around. As long as the kids were not present, what is the big deal?

      • Lackadaisical

        My first thought was also “soft play centres where you can drop your kids and leave for a few hours? Wow”. We do get creshes at places like gyms (although parents are still on site). Perhaps such places exist in the UK but not where I live.

        As for the adult party, I am torn on that. I can see how finding out about it could taint the place for many parents and they might feel understandably upset to find they were in there with kids after the party but before they found out about it to make their own choice to stay away. I also think that places like that are built to be easy to clean thoroughly, because otherwise the kids would be playing in baby vomit and nappy leakage. It happened at a completely different time with kids being none the wiser. Personally I think that while the after hours adult party was probably harmless enough the management were rather dumb to think that their would be no repercussions when parents inevitably found out. Reputation is very important in a place like that and it may well hit them even harder financially now that they have lost the trust of their main customers.

    • evilstepmom

      I want this party! I would probably injure myself, but it would be worth it!

    • FormerlyKnownAsWendy

      If I had a penny for every gross thing I’ve seen one of my students do (that would cause their parents to simply die of mortification), I’d be rich. Watching the most popular little adorable cheerleader in the middle school pick her nose and eat it may have been one of the most fascinating ones. And….I swear 90% of boys don’t wash their hands after the bathroom either. Even though we have gross signs up, and even though we sometimes stand there and call them out on it when they don’t.

      • Véronique Houde

        Ok, now i’m waiting for your top 10 list of gross things you caught students do

      • FormerlyKnownAsWendy

        Hmmmm. I don’t know if I could do 10 without repeating nose picking/eating as every third one. Seriously, that’s pretty high up there.
        Not washing hands after very lengthy bathroom trips, getting caught masturbating (that happened to my neighbor teacher, not me, though, to be fair), wiping boogers on wall right outside my classroom door!!!!!!, scratching their head and coming up with a headlice (again neighbor teacher but he was my student too), once long ago found a mysterious turd in the middle of the gym but don’t know which one of the kids it came from or how it got there when we were all in there…… putting gum wherever they want, putting boogers wherever they want. Plus, the accidents like vomiting near into your trash can, nosebleeds. Picking out teeth and showing me the bloody stump/hole. Having kids hork a loogie into the trashcan and then act surprised when I indignantly insist they take out the trash. Oh my God. I used to be discrete about it, but now, if I see them pick their nose I announce, “Go wash your hands.” They always say why and act innocent. To which I say, “You KNOW Why. Go.”

    • Rachel Sea

      Assuming none of the adults at that party were wearing leaky diapers, and smearing boogers on the walls they were way less filthy than the kids. So what if adults were enjoying the space? If none of these parents’ kids were there they have no business getting up in arms about what happened.

      • pineapplegrasss

        I do not want to go if the adults are wearing diapers. that’s just not my thing ;)

    • pineapplegrasss

      I would totally RSVP to this party AND send a handwritten Thank-You note.
