Karen’s 4or Kids
1647 Ottawa Street
With over 60 years of experience, Karen’s 4or Kids are experts when it comes to children’s footwear. The well-trained staff can help properly fit shoes for babies taking their first steps to older children who may require adult sized shoes. Gift certificates are ideal to ensure proper fit.

HighJinks Indoor Playcare and Imaginarium
13496 Tecumseh Road East, Tecumseh
If you’re shopping for little ones who already have too many toys, gift certificates to indoor play centres are a creative option that kids will love. HighJinks caters to both toddlers and older children with their playhouses for little ones and a large climber and slides for older children. In 2015 HighJinks introduced their HJ Gaming Room where children 6+ (and parents too) can play games in their state of the art computer gaming room. Gift baskets and candy bouquets are also available for children and adults.

Yoyo’s Family Fun Centre
4451 Tecumseh Road East
Yoyo’s Family Fun Centre is an excellent place to bring restless kids during the cold winter months. Gift certificates are great to slip into Christmas cards or to use as stocking stuffers. Just this past summer Yoyo’s added some new additions to their playspace.

Springz Trampoline & Amusement Park
Another great gift card idea to get the kids active during the winter months is Springz. New in 2015, the indoor amusement park features 70+ trampolines complete with basketball nets and foam pits. The park also has indoor go-karts, glow golf, and arcade games.
