The Great Big Family Play Day— A Must-Do for L.A. Moms


A Family Experience Like No Other!


It was a Sunday filled with excitement for Los Angeles families that attended the 5th Annual SoCal Moms Great Big Family Play Day on June 10, 2018.

The massive family festival, held at the Autry Museum’s lawn at Griffith Park, introduced parents to hundreds of businesses whose focus aligns with raising healthy, happy kids in Los Angeles.

 “What an amazing day of PLAY!,” said Heather Brooker, the event’s host. “We entertained thousands of SoCal families as they danced, played games, ate great food and got one-on-one time with family-friendly businesses.”

Performances by The Beat Buds, Jazzy Ash, Love Bug and Me, among others, entertained the children while a kid’s fashion show hosted by Lip gloss and Crayons Blogger Carly Anderson introduced the crowds to the latest kids’ clothing trends.

“It was a ton of fun,” said Anderson.


One of the Great Big Family Play Day’s main attractions each year is an organized set-up of vendor booths where friendly business owners and brand representatives arrange play areas for kids in their individual spaces, while speaking to parents about their brands.

The Subaru-sponsored tent, for example, had vehicles on display for mom and dad to check out while an enormous bubble party took place for the little ones.

Kids’ party companies, such as Tinseltot, set-up carefully curated activations decorated with balloons and garland and allowed children to play in their party rentals while engaging parents on the company’s offerings.

The Usborne Books and More booth featured a colorful display of children’s books for sale and local moms Maria Lim and Crystal Wai were on hand speaking to parents about the company while recommending books for different age groups.


Many other clothing, baby gear, entertainment and food companies offered samples and distributed information about programs, services and products.

While the Great Big Family Play Day is not a free event (early bird tickets were on sale for $5 per person), it’s proven to offer parents a remarkable opportunity to shop and learn about different companies that cater to parenting needs, all while giving children a chance to play the entire way through.
