North Brooklyn’s rockingest kids can get a sneak peek this Friday at one of the area’s hippest summer activities.
Camp Frolic!, presented by the North 6th Street Rock ‘n’ Roll play space of the same name, returns for its third season this June, to bring little rockers ten weeks of music making, songwriting, arts and crafts, storytelling, musical theater, cooking and various science-related activities.
At the end of the snowy weekend, the Flour Shop’s Amirah Kassem invited her friends to revisit their childhood for her playground-themed birthday party at Frolic!
... this 5000-square-foot rock n’ roll themed play club has legions of loyal, local fans... We suspect it’s because Frolic! manages to cater to kids and their parents in equal measure. Whilst little ones are leaping around the psychedelic play area (think double Rolling Stones slide, stage area and pimped-out 1970’s VW), adults are breathing a sign of relief: this is no run-of-the-mill sticky-floored play space.
Frolic! was voted "Best play space" in the TimeOut NY Kids Best of 2013 Readers' Choice!
We've reviewed some cool play centres on Babyology but I think this one might win. Located in Brooklyn, New York, Frolic has redefined play centres with a rock'n'roll urban edge. If the amazing pop-art-meets-Led-Zepplin decor is not enough to set Frolic apart, then the list of 'extras' most certainly does. Reflecting the artistic culture of the surrounding neighbourhood, the focus of the activities and classes offered at Frolic are on the creative - music and art with a distinct rock edge.

Frolic! holds everything from concerts to cooking classes to birthdays to craft projects, all under a rock ‘n’ roll theme. The activities are crazy creative and best of all, fun for parents and kids. We spoke to Balogh and Dawson about being momtrepreneurs, starting a business with a friend, and what makes Frolic! so unique.
This year, entrust Frolic!--the ultimate kid's party place--to bring the whimsy without all the work. With a bunch of birthday party themes available like “Guitars and Rockstars”, "Glitter and Glow Sticks", and “Pink Pixies”, you're sure to find a perfect backdrop for your child's super special day.
On Sunday, December 3rd, the Music Hall of Williamsburg hosted Frolic!’s 2nd Annual Rockin’ Holiday Show. Following the massive success of last year’s concert, the Northside play space was proud to present its band and signature music program Little Rock-its by Frolic!, as well as several special guests. Although it stayed kid-friendly, this was a show any real rock fan could love... the original songs were melodically infectious and packed their own charm. At one point, even Santa came out to boogie with the kids.
We know it’s only rock ‘n’ roll, but we like it, and so did the hundreds of kids who celebrated Halloween at North 6th Street’s rock ‘n’ roll playspace Frolic!
Frolic really does ROCK!
There are a wide variety of classes for preschoolers, including art, soccer, dance, cooking, and its signature offering, Little Rock-its, a music class created by Tim Kubart of the upbeat kids' band Tim and the Space Cadets.
On Sunday, June 3rd, Brooklyn’s hippest kids will be rockin’ the waterfront to give their less fortunate peers a great summer.
At “Family Fun on the Williamsburg Pier,” presented by Elaine and Norm Brodsky, in-kids and their wannabe parents will enjoy an afternoon of rides, games, food, drinks and music. Proceeds from the event will help Camp Brooklyn send children from low-income families to sleep away camp this summer.
A “rock’n’roll play space for children” will set up shop on the Williamsburg waterfront Sunday to benefit Camp Brooklyn, a non-profit that sends low-income kids to sleep-away camp.
The free outdoor festival will feature performances by family-friendly rockers the Little Rock-its, Suzi Shelton, and Topsy Bonsai and the Tangs featuring Tracy Bonham. A tattoo station, face painting, rides and other attractions are also planned.

For all you parents out there who just can’t bring yourselves to tune into Pandora’s “Children Folk Songs” station one more time, you need to get yourselves over to Williamsburg. You may have heard about the massive, 5,000 sq ft play space that opened this past January, but Frolic! must be seen to be believed.
Residents of the Northside waterfront should be on the lookout for a Yellow Submarine! For six Saturdays, beginning May 5th, instructor Molly White will take kids, ages 4-7, from rock’s blues-based inception all the way to Taylor Swift and Madonna. Along the way, they will cover some jazz, country, rockabilly, R & B, punk, metal and, of course, the British invasion.
The indie pioneers of Williamsburg will not let young parenthood spoil their indie-rocker cred. That is why so many of them are naming their kids things like Cash and Marley, giving them Ziggy-era Bowie haircuts, putting them in toddler-size AC/DC T-shirts and taking them to the new Frolic! play space, a 5,000-square-foot, candy-colored facility in the waterside Edge apartment complex. With membership nearly $1,000 a year, the space — which features an array of music classes, its own in-house band, a slide built around the famous Rolling Stones lips and a “Ziggy Starbus” VW minivan — allows parents to steep their kids in a wee version of rock culture while they kick back, drink organic coffee and reminisce about their Cobain- and DiFranco-worshiping wild years. We stopped in recently and asked a bunch of moms (and one dad), all from Billyburg, if and how their own kids are exhibiting signs of Mommy’s bad-ass halcyon days.
Last week we finally visited Frolic!, the new children’s play space in Williamsburg but the reviews we have heard were right on: it is the ultimate rock ‘n’ roll play space.
“Hi, how are you? She is just so adorable!” Those are just two of the many greetings I received when River Mae and I visited Frolic. I have never felt so welcome as we entered this awesome rock and roll themed play space.
Frolic!, Williamsburg's new rock 'n' roll-themed romping spot for preschoolers, has gotten an incredible amount of buzz since it opened last month. Although as of now the awesome play space is reserved for members, non-members can sign up for Frolic!'s cool classes, which are led by talented New York City artists. Since my daughter is such a big music fan, we just had to check it out.

A luxury condo complex has opened a"rock-and-roll play space": a basic membership $828.
As a successful entrepreneur and columnist for business magazine Inc., CitiStorage founder Norm Brodsky knows how to spot a good investment. Judging by new memberships, his latest venture, a partnership in Frolic!, which opened this week, already looks like a winner.
Brooklyn Based has a new piece on the plight of indie parents trying to make it in the music world while juggling parenthood. Of course, after reading that sentence, the word "Williamsburg" should be flashing in red before your eyes as the neighborhood you once thought of as kind of hip and maybe even a little cool gets slammed with toddlers with ironically ripped jeans (maybe from learning how to crawl) and tattooed moms debating the fastest way to swing by Roberta's for a quick lunch date in a Blue Bottle driven frenzy.
We first reported that a new play space was coming to Williamsburg back in October—and now Frolic! has finally opened its doors. The 5,000-square-foot spot, run by two neighborhood moms who used to work in the fashion industry, sports a members-only indoor playground complete with a replica of a 1970s VW bus, a Rolling Stones–inspired tongue slide and a concert stage.
Both juice boxes and beer were the drinks of choice at Frolic’s holiday party at the Music Hall of Williamsburg last month, where the average attendee was about three feet tall. Iggy Pop blared on the sound system, but instead of mosh pits on the main floor there was cushy felt, perfect for crawling babies.
Having kids may have rocked your world. But a new spot is going to show you how to roll with it.
A rock-inspired play space opens in Brooklyn. Pretty high on the list of Things that Make Parents Smile is watching their babies dance. That's the idea behind Frolic!, a 5,000 square-foot play space opening on Williamsburg’s waterfront next month.
Just because you're a parent now doesn't mean you have to walk the straight and narrow—in fact, starting this fall, music-loving NYC parents can help foster their kid's creative spirit at Frolic!, a 5,000-square-foot play space located in Williamsburg's The Edge condominium complex (34 North 6th St between Kent Ave and the East River).
Williamsburg was anointed the new Diaper District in January, and the neighborhood's new buildings have been surprisingly quick to embrace the trend. First 184 Kent leased space to the River School, a 100-child facility that will be open 12 hours a day. Not to be outdone, the Edge has just leased 5,000 square feet to something called Frolic!, "Williamsburg's "first ever rock ‘n’ roll-inspired play space and enrichment center." ...
