Treehouse Social Club helps a mother out

The Treehouse Social Club


Helping a mother out has never been so much fun.

Yesterday, CC and I made our way over to The Treehouse Social Club on Robertson Blvd. and joined a packed playgroup of L.A.-area moms and their little ones for a holiday diaper haul.

And when I say packed, I mean it. Moms and dads were weaving gingerly in between little feet and hands, as the kids darted here, there and everywhere. They really had the run of the place.

The holiday playdate helped benefit Help A Mother Out, a California-based organization dedicated to providing diapers to families in need. And credit must be given to fellow mom blogger Kim Tracy Prince for making it all happen.

The Treehouse Social Club itself is a clever use of limited kid-friendly space. While it doesn't have the expanse of a place like AdventurePlex, what it does have is a cozy atmosphere and lots of options for young children.

Kids can move around freely among the titular treehouse, which includes a superfast slide, as well as space up top and below for monkeying around; a toddler room with lots of toys; a grocery, with plastic fruit and veggies and a kid-sized cart (above); an arts & crafts room (right); a computer room; and an open room for kicking a ball around.

There's also a cafe area, which serves everything from pancakes to panini. Last night, some of the staff was offering Beef Wellington in small phylo pockets and fried peanut butter and jelly donuts. Yum. Seriously.

And let's not forget the band area, where various artists were stretching their pipes.

It was a great time, and it was fun seeing fellow L.A. Moms Blog contributors including Mar Vista Mom, Elise's Ramblings, Yvonne in LA (who contributed her gluten-free goodies)April from It's All About Balance and Jeannine Chanin, who is managing partner of the Treehouse.
I also took home a TCM gift basket as part of a raffle. Icing on the gluten-free cupcake!
