The Kidville concept started when Shari Misher Stenzler, co-founder of London Misher Public Relations, found herself carrying her baby and stroller down a long flight of stairs for her child's first music class. "There must be a better way," she thought and began informally polling friends and fellow parents about their needs.
Fun and familiar geometric shapes are the design foundation for the Kidville interior space. Used with vibrant colors, the design elements encourage exploration and intuitively guide children throughout the space. This playful and cross-functional design provides the perfect setting for everything from intimate classes to "Big Blow Out" birthday parties.
