Amazing place, my daughter loves it so much. Every time we go there she is beyond sad to leave. Love the weekend parents night out-and that it is for a full 4 hours. Enough time to make it to the city and not feel rushed. Wish they had that every weekend! More...
We love Okabaloo! My shy 6-year old goes there for after school, and she is thriving. Okabaloo brings out creativity in kids. Facility is amazing and love the people running the place.When you first set foot in it, you know, see and feel that it is not just business - it is clear that the owners, who are artists and educators, put their heart and soul in it AND IT SHOWS!! It is different from other centers! A lot of thought, creativity and personal touch is put in the activities/events. Okabaloo has added and will add so much more to Astoria - I feel it in my bones - the business will grow and thrive. Okabaloo- Thank you for the sincere personal care you shower our children. For bringing out their creativity, and making things fun for the children, families and community. We are blessed to be part of the Okabaloo family. You have truly created something special here. Thanks so much and more power!! More...
Loved the summer camp. Friendly and creative atmosphere - very helpful to gear my son towards art and creativity plus develop his social skills in a small scale setting with room for individual attention.

I am so happy to have discovered Okabaloo - The Arts & Fun Gallery, and very excited my son goes to their after-school recreation program. They do a great job with their daily hands-on activities, every day of the week is different, he gets to learn about art, crafts, music, theatre, spanish immersion, chess and more, he gets to read and play everyday and loves his new friends. It is to be mentioned that they have a limited attendance capacity which ensures the quality and individualized attention. The staff are so kind and dedicated. Thank you Okabaloo! More...
Lovely merchandise, friendly staff. Great place to get boutique gifts for your friends and family.
Awesome experience! We had my daughter’s 1 year birthday party here and it couldn’t have gone better. The staff were so prepared and attentive. They took care of everything and even kept the kids entertained. I highly recommend checking them out. More...
Olta welcomed our sons to the artsy summer camp 2018 with genuine joy! What a fabulous experience. The kids were in love with the program on the very first day and were looking forward to the next day! Bravo!The scent of every corner of their space is so beautiful, incredibly clean and organized. This is such a treasure in L.I.C. Strongly recommended. More...

Love Okabaloo!!! Wish there were more places similar which makes this a very special venue. My kid loves it there so much that she was perfectly happy being the first one to arrive and the last one to leave. Thanks Olta and staff for such a great place!! More...
This place is awesome! Okabaloo hosted my daughter’s 1 year birthday party and it was the best possible experience I could have imagined. Olta and her staff took care of everything during the party, including interacting with the kids and gathering all the party members together for the cake time, pizza and pictures. It was so nice to be able to just enjoy the party. I reserved the play zone and there were SO many age appropriate toys! After 2 hours, some of the kids really didn’t want to leave! I can’t say enough great things about this place and I’ll definitely be checking out their classes and other services. More...
Okabaloo is excellent! Was referred by the mother of one of my daughter's friends. She told me that the kids loved this place and she was right! Both my kids LOVE this place and cannot wait to go back each time. The venue is spacious and well organized with multiple rooms for art, music and playtime. They also have a stage where they put together shows or recitals. Olta is wonderful in every aspect. Highly recommend... More...
Okabaloo hosted my nieces 1st birthday party and I can't think of any place who could have made it as special. From the facility to the staff, everything was amazing!! The owner and the staff went out of their way to make sure everything was perfect for the special day. Once we were there they took care of everything, from the decorations, keeping up with the schedule and entertaining the kids. Also, we were able to bring in our own food, drinks for the kids and drinks for the adults, which was very nice. I would highly recommend hosting your kids party here, you definitely will not be disappointed!! More...

I had my son's first birthday here and it was great! Olta and her staff were great from the moment I started speaking with her. She was excited about the theme and helped me from beginning to end. Everything looked perfect, and most importantly the kids had a ball!!! More...
I had my son's first birthday at Okabaloo and it was great! Olta and her staff were great with the kids and they had an amazing time! The venue has such great space, and because it is so sleek and clean, you can have any theme and it will look great! My theme was graffiti and was a perfect match with Okabaloo, Olta was excited about my theme and helped me plan along the way! They are creative and were excited about planning my son's bday. Olta was very accommodating from beginning to end and I would definitely recommend this place! More...
Okabaloo hosted our daughter's 4th birthday party. They did a great job and the kids and adults had a great time. Olta was really accommodating during the planning stage and the decorations and theme were exactly what we wanted. The entertainment they provided was great for the kids and the helpers on the day really helped to ensure the kids had so much fun. It's a great space and Olta and the team obviously really care about the kids. I would highly recommend it as an event space and the play space and classes look great as well. More...
I worked with the Owners of OKABALOO for two weeks, arranging the camera system for them. There were constantly professional and highly passionate about doing their best in every detail. I will most definitely have my daughter birthday there. All the best OKABALOO!! More...
Had a wonderful time while celebrating the birthday of my nephew! I especially appreciateed the fact that there was a designated area for us , the grown ups :-), to hang around and entertain, while kids were having fun. Great place, delightful atmosphere, and very responsive hosts. I highly recommend it, and I am definitely going back. More...
Great place for a Birthday party, educational class or free play. Pace is very big, amazingly clean and well decorated!
Was very happy to find a late easter event happening here today since I was working the holidays and I am very happy ! My 2 year old and I had so much fun with the staff and other parents with their kids. They had a fun filled event that we all enjoyed and they were great with the kids. I found out they have many activities to accomadate my daughter age group. It is a bit pricy for classes but very nice people More...
We love it here! We came for the play space and had a great time. My 2.5 year old really enjoyed the legos and foam blocks. They also have an awesome variety of books to wind down with and enjoy some quiet time. Plenty of room to play with well cared for, engaging toys. The upstairs space looks like a spacious and tasteful party venue (suitable for younger and older kids.) They also seem to have a lot of unique classes and events.Okabaloo is a very clean and cheerful place to go in the neighborhood! More...
