About Where the Wild Things Play

Where the Wild Things Play is an imaginative and active indoor play space for little people and their caregivers. With over 4,000 SF of space, we offer safe, clean and comfortable environment where children can let their imaginations run free.

Children can explore a variety of play options - from make believe to a more active play experience. Our space includes five play houses, an enclosed climbing structure and thoughtfully placed STEAM activities throughout the space.

Designed with caregivers in mind, Where the Wild Things Play offers comfortable seating that maximizes sight lines across the space and a limited cafe where caregivers can relax, converse or catch up on work.

Meet Our Team

Owned and operated by mother/daughter duo Jess Callahan and Lynn Vastyan, Where the Wild Things Play is an imaginative and active indoor play space for little people and their caregivers. Born out of a dream to create a space where our children and grandchildren can let their imaginations run free while encouraging safe and active play, Where the Wild Things Play encourages children to explore the world of play wherever their imaginations lead them.

With deep roots in the Hershey community, we are excited to create a space where community comes together in a meaningful way – be it through open play, classes, birthday parties or special events.

Jess (who has two “wild things” of her own) and Lynn (who raised three children and now has five grandchildren) can be found wearing many different hats, all of which we are equally as passionate about. From dreaming up special events and classes for Where the Wild Thing Play to helping clients find their dream homes in Central PA – every day we strive to make a positive impact on our community.
