What are some of the better kid-play areas in the malls in the metro Detroit area.

I went to Sterling Heights' Lakeside Mall..that seemed alright. Any other ones...better ones? etc.?

The other I can think of is Great Lakes Crossing. I have not been there for a while but they used to have a play area that's better than Lakeside's.

I've usually liked the one at 12 Oaks in Novi.

Though the last time we were there it was a MADHOUSE.

And they often don't keep the big kids out-- and I am not talking the bigger 6 year old or an older child with special needs.

No I am referring to the 12-14 year olds with their cells phones, loitering on top of play stuff, while on their phones. I once got into it with 2 girls that fit that description, asking them to follow the posted age/height rules and let the little kids play. I guess I shouldn't be surprised when their mother nearly got physical with me, when she got their cell phone call, from atop the playscape, that some lady (me) was being mean to them.

There are also the indoor playplace options like Jungle Java (Canton) and Chelsea's TreeHouse (Chelsea), that you pay a nominal fee and can play all day. Saturdays and Sundays are especially hairy around Birthday Party times, but later in the evening and on weekdays are really quite nice. I like that they have decent coffee, adult snacks and tons of kid friendly food options.

Oh, and Great Lakes Crossings is in Auburn Hills.
