I had heard some great reviews about the place so we went to check it out today.  The Kulick Community Center is located in Ferndale, south of 9 mile, west of Woodward.  Only a few minutes from either I-75 or I-696.  Map it on Google. It was very easy to find and the parking was convenient.  
Rosa in the Moon Bounce
We walked into the community center and entered the office which was up a short flight of stairs to the right.  There were a couple of other families ahead of me, but the line went quickly and the woman behind the counter was delightful and very helpful.  She took my information and gave me a scan card to use on my visits.  What is nice is that I didn't have to pick the Kid's Corner or the Gym, we did both.  And because they are right across the hall from one another, we could go back and forth between the two many times.  Also, we could leave and come back on the same day and it only counts as one visit.   The lady behind the counter then showed me where to scan my card on each visit and where the rooms were.  Rosa and I took off our coats and shoes and went into the gym first.
The gym!!!
The gym is, well a gym, filled with balls, a few foam hockey sticks, some big soft toys to climb on and a moon bounce.  The moon bounce was a great hit with Rosa.  At first she had difficulty climbing in and out by herself, but she figured it out and joyously entered on her own, jumped for a minute or two, then came out only to do it again about twenty more times.  Her second most favorite thing in the gym was the rubber balls.  She really enjoyed throwing, kicking and chasing after them.  The other children there also seemed to be having a great time.  
Look at all those toys, and that is just some of them.
After about an hour in the gym we moved onto the play room.  Wow!  There were a ton of toys to play with.  Balls, blocks, dinosaurs, cars and trucks, pretend kitchen with food, baby dolls and furniture, balance beam, climber, basketball hoop, puzzles, chalk and a chalkboard, books and more.  It was amazing.  Rosa spent most of her time playing with the dolls until she discovered the chalk and chalkboard.   We both had an amazing time.  She got to play and meet new friends, and I got to meet and talk to other adults.  This is such an amazing community resource.  Everyone was really friendly.  I'm looking forward to visiting again.
