PARAMUS, NEW JERSEY, (June 14, 2024) – The first-of-its-kind Planet Playskool entertainment center opened at Westfield Garden State Plaza Thursday, June 13th,, welcoming City Officials, youth ambassadors and beloved Hasbro characters for a Grand Opening celebration like no other.

Bringing immersive and imaginative play to a new and younger demographic expands the mall’s appeal, something that remains a priority as we continue to grow with our community.”
