The Bite-Sized Backyard is a place for all the littles to have endless outdoor fun. One of the great things for parents is that every kid is given a temporary wristband that will have their parents contact information and will also have their picture taken. This system makes it very easy to keep the kids safe and in case someone walks away by mistake, they will be returned quickly to their parents.
