Are you into inclusive or exclusive play areas for your tot? In recent years, a number of posh indoor play spaces have offered mamas willing to fork over big bucks bragging rights that junior hobnobs with celeb and big name babies. In addition, perks of these playgrounds designed by famed architects also offer members only benefits from WiFi access to parental gym facilities. The prices can be baffling. San Francisco's Peekadoodle offers unlimited visits for $1,500 each year, while New York's Citibabes membership starts at $2,000 – and those prices do not include classes. What do you think about this trend?
New York seems to reign superior when it comes to things that are hip and cool. And, they've done it again with an amazingly convenient and luxurious club for moms, Citibabes. Started by two women, Tracey Rensky and Tara Lipton, the club opened a little over two years ago in downtown Manhattan. And, it has been hugely popular — currently has over 500 members. The membership is a whopping $2,000 a year but apparently it's worth every penny.
Moms and dads can drop off children ages three months to five years, for some babysitting which is only $8 an hour, while they relax in the club's lounge, workout, get a mani-pedi or their hair blown out. The caregivers at the club have been background checked extensively so the parents can rest assured that their lil one is in good hands.
