Inside the World's Biggest Play Date

Playing Parents and Kids Play Together at the World’s Biggest Play Date

It's a child's paradise: Cozy Coupe racing, giant ball pits and even cooking demos on kid-sized kitchens.

This past weekend, Little Tikes celebrated its 50th anniversary by inspiring families to play together at the World's Biggest Play Date in Pasadena, California. The event was hosted by Brett Tutor, the host of Little Tikes' new YouTube series, "Project Play Big!"

"I think play is so important, not only for children, but for the adults, too," Tutor said. 

The fun wasn't only unfolding in California. People across the country — and around the world — joined in by Playing Big at their own play dates and sharing the fun on social media.

"We have 12 events around the world where people are coming to play together, parents and kids," said Jill Waller, Vice President of Marketing for Little Tikes. "We also have people playing at home with Little Tikes. ... It's a global social digital event."

The World's Biggest Play Date on May 18 was just the beginning. Families can have play dates at home every day of the year
