Kidville Hoboken opening this month?

1/14/2010 Update:

Will Kidville open on time in Hoboken?

Apparently, things are going smoothly at the Hoboken Kidville Annex location at 1202 Shipyard Lane. The sign was changed from “Winter 2010” to “January,” so that must be around two weeks or so!

I’ve heard some parents are quite excited – and it should be a hot spot right out of the opening gate. Are you a parent that is fired up too?

Description: Kidville is a Child-centric complex with offerings including fun activities, birthday parties, indoor playground, classes and even a salon at select locations!
Address: 1202 Shipyard Lane, Hoboken, NJ 07030 (corner of 12th Street)
Web: http://www.kidville.com/Hoboken/home/default.asp
Phone: 201-377-5495

See update from last summer – after the jump!!

New kid-centric business opening Winter 2010

Finally taking place of the doomed Hollywood Video location at 1202 Shipyard Lane is Kidville!

Have any of you parents heard of or been to another Kidville location? What are your thoughts?

I checked out the site quickly and it looks like classes are about $27 per week… how does that compare to other places?

Without knowing much about the alternatives in town I can say the big messy art class is going to be outrageously fun!!

Anyone look at their price list? It’s alot more than the other places in town that offer children’s classes. And to host a party there, whoa lots of $$$$!

Okay, okay, I know by my posts on this thread I seem a bit obsessed with this place. Honestly, I am looking forward to a new indoor play space for kids that is nearby.

Anyway…I just checked their website…looks like classes will be starting on January 18 (not January 11 as they have been stating for awhile now). This information is NOT obvious on the site, nor have I received any communication about it from Kidville (even though I’ve received plenty of other emails and publications via mail).

Not sure if there will be a further delay, but that’s what I can find out for now. (I will be calling Kidville later to confirm.)

Kidville is opening up in mid-January.

Right. That’s what we’ve been told all along for months. Classes are scheduled to start the week of January 11.

But do you have new information from the person you know? I happened to be walking by the building again a couple of days ago and there was literally nothing in the space (the plywood covering the window was completely removed and you could see into the room from the sidewalk). Workers were there – but it doesn’t look like a mid-January opening to me. Just cement floors and unfinished walls.

That be it, oce. That’s what I confirmed, this week :).

We still have a month to go. Let’s see what happens.
