  • We took my son when he was 7 months old. I don't think he really knew what he was looking at or the point of it, but he liked it all the same, lol. We just took him again recently when he was 18 months old and he LOVED looking at the animals. Granted, he was making "doggie" noises at all of them, lol, but he totally understood why we were there. :)

  • She was about 10 months. We didn't go for the whole day, about 3 hours. She sat in her wagon and loved it!

  • Before he could walk. Most zoos have a childrens zoo, which often have animals they can touch. In nice weather, you put them in the stroller or wagon, depending on age and there is so much to look at for them. It is a great walk for you!

  • Her 1st visit to the zoo was very memorable. 2yo-ish... I think. and was able to walk alot & name some of the animals..

  • My oldest was a month old. But we were there with my husband's niece and nephew. My other kids were similar ages because we were taking our older kids. My youngest was almost 9 months (we went earlier this month). He had a blast. He loved the elephants.

  • We took our kids there when they were little babies while they had no interest the animals (at that age) they did enjoy the fresh air and riding in their stroller.... while hubs and I walked around and looked at the animals. Now that the kids are older they have more interest in the Zoo and animals, and we go quite a few times during the year.

  • I started taking DD to the zoo before she was even a year old. We have a membership and go several times a year. She loves it!!
