Any Moms in the Fort Wayne area looking for play dates? My son is 9 months old and I don't have any friends with little ones. I think it would be good for him to interact with other children.

I don't have any little ones anymore, but I wanted to point out that I think Jefferson Pointe (in the food court) has a play area geared towards toddlers. They used to have "Toddler Tuesdays" where lots of moms would get together and their kiddos would play. This started after my kiddos were too old to join in, but we would often go there and my kids would play and have a great time. I'm sure you could call the office and see if they still offer the play time. :)

Good luck!

If you're out at Jefferson Pointe for the play area, you may also want to check out Barnes & Noble. Once a week (I believe Tuesdays, as well), they would have storytime followed by a craft of some sort. While 9 mos. is a little young for that, there are often youngsters there with tiny siblings. As your little one grows, there used to be a Thomas the Tank Engine train set for little ones to play with -- or just stand by, in some cases. :) You are likely to meet moms with little ones there.

Good luck!


I also have a 9 month old boy. I work full time Monday thru Friday but we would be interested in a weekend play date!

That would be fun! Sundays probably work best for me, depending on the weekend, how about you?

My daughter is 10 months! I too don't have many friends with kids that are available to get together.

Hi ,
I have a 9 month old little boy too. :) My family will be moving to Huntertown in June and I would love to get together for play dates. Keep me posted.

@ cindymae333 what's your availability like? I'm a stay at home mom so I'm available pretty much any day. I live in Southwest Allen county.

Sounds good Andrea! Good luck with your move :)

Hi I also no longer have little ones, But I am about to be a grandma for the first time. I am not sure if this is the correct place to post this, but I have just joined a great company called Celadon Road. It is natural, organic and eco-friendly. The products are safe for little ones to crawl around on or be close to when you spray the window cleaner. We have everything from body lotions, shower gels, face products, products for the man in your life, organic baby soaps, lotions, blankies, organic dog biscuits, beds and the cleaning products are fantastic. The spot remover is unbelievable. The laundry detergent has various scents. The window cleaner can be squirted in your mouth. That is what I am talikng about these products being so safe. If anyone is interested in receiving a free sample of the laundry soap, let me know or if you are all meetings for a play date, I would be happy to come by and introduce you to our wonderful products. By the way, this company is only 3 yrs old so if your are interested in making some extra money, this would be ideal. My website is I would love to share being grenn.

Hi there! My little one is 7 months old and were new to town. Definitely interested in play dates!
