  • I do...but usually it is only at one particular McDonald's and the Chick Fil they have to look clean...:) I'm not a germ a phobe so these "toys" don't bother me...but they do have to wash their hands when they are done :)

  • Yes, I do..and they love it!! Did ya hear the latest and greatest news about germs? A little of exposure is actually good to help them build up their immune systems. I have always been sooo OCD with them ...carring wipes and putting down protecters on carts..etc. Now I can relax ..a little. LOL It is great to go these places with play is the only time DH and I can eat together in peace. LOL

  • umm- no way- I asked a manager once how often they were cleaned, MAYbe one a month! WHAT_! With all of those grubby kids? People are stupid and bring SICK kids to play in those thing! Ayden went in ONCE and he came out literally FILTHY- dirt EVERYWHERE- it was gross- germs are okay- but no, I don't let him roll around in a pile of dirt and sickness

  • Yes as long as they aren't filthy. Only one time did I stop Lukas from playing on the play place. It was seriously disgusting.

  • Yeah as long as it's clean. We have a McDonalds by our house that is really new and the play area is great, Avery loves it.

  • We tend not to eat at fast food places very much and therefore no we don't.
