I recently saw a butterfly flitting around doing butterfly things. This made me happy for two reasons:
1. It was the first one I’ve seen this season.
2. Butterflies are just awesome.
If you haven’t seen them in your area yet, don’t fret! There’s a neat place where you can get up close and personal with these winged beauties. World of Wings in Teaneck, New Jersey is a children’s museum and family fun center.
World of Wings features a live butterfly atrium. It houses different types of exotic butterflies from all over the world. This atrium ranks pretty high on the cool scale. You’ll wander around an indoor garden where butterflies freely roam. I’ve even had some hang out on my shoulder and head as I walked around (what can I say, I’m a sweet gal).
It also features a great variety of fun for kids of all ages (including adults). There’s a soft-play area for toddlers, a bounce house, rock climbing wall, bubble room, play kitchen, arcade, mini race track, face painting, ball pit, and more. Yes, you read that right; there’s more.
“Did she say ‘ball pit’?” I sure did. Seriously folks, nothing beats a good ball pit.
If you haven’t yet hit your cool quota then you’ll want to check out their butterfly receiving room where you can actually see butterflies emerging from their chrysalises. You could also roam around World of Wings’ exhibition hall that features a unique collection of animals and insects. Wander and explore and if you get hungry, they do have banquet hall.
World of Wings is a great place to visit whether you’re a kid or a kid at heart. They work with educators for field trips and also welcome birthday parties, large groups, and play dates. Doors are open Wednesday through Sunday, from 10 am to 6 pm. Prices vary based on how much you want to see and do.
