The Bay Area's Most Exciting Sensory Play Events for Kids: Oogubi

Find the Bay Area's most exciting sensory play events for kids at Oogubi. Founded and operated by a San Francisco mom of three active toddlers, these events offer a unique experience where children can engage in unstructured sensory play, while parents get to socialize and supervise from a distance. Read on for an exclusive discount to Oogubi's mini sensory theme park on February 4, 2024. This discount is available for a limited time only.

These sensory play events are great for kids of all ages, but especially for young kids and toddlers 6yo and under. I mean, even I want to play with some of the sensory set ups. Besides the seemingly endless sensory play invitations, there are areas available for crawling babies and "dry" zones for anyone that might need a sensory break. You can find a variety of toys in those areas like small ball pits, giant Lego-inspired bricks, magnetic tiles, cars, musical instruments, and more.

Our family has attended several Oogubi events and it’s always a fun, messy time (my kids are 5yo and 3yo, for reference). Oogubi does a great job creating a family-friendly vibe full of good energy and inspiring curiosity. It’s hard to explain fully and so you really just need to go experience the Oogubi vibe for yourself. 

When you check out one of these events, don't forget to bring an extra change of clothes for the kids and a small towel to wipe them down easily.

These are the types of events they currently offer: 

Sensory play Pop-Ups

Wonderland Events 

  • This is a mini sensory theme park in San Francisco!  I have never seen anything like it and it's absolutely worth experiencing at least once because it’s so amazing. 

  • There are endless sensory play activities, but that’s not all.. there is a bubble house, a foam party, a glow-in-the dark tent, and just so much more. They keep adding something new each time. 

  • Themed characters & balloon artist

  • Takes place at venues with food trucks + on-site beer / wine ( with discounted pricing).

  • The next Wonderland event is Paris-themed and takes play February 24, 2024. Get 10% off tickets HERE with my code toddlersplay. This code is good while ticket supplies last.

  • These events have little to no seating, so they offer a VIP upgrade to the "Jingle Lounge" which comes with perks like guaranteed seating, hot cocoa and coffee, a swag bag and more. You can get VIP tickets through the Jingle App--> get 20% off with code toddlersplay. This code expires on January 15, 2024.

Culinary Chaos 

  • This is a pop-up style event that involves an engaging, food-based sensory experience. It’s all the things you want to let your child do in the kitchen, except your kitchen stays clean. 

  • Dates and locations vary.
