PlayTown Express recently moved its bouncy houses and giant slides from Hopkinton to Southborough. There are also ride-on toys, a traverse wall, and a little town with a small workshop, café, and market. Open to the public Monday through Saturday, the fun includes a play area for infants and wi-fi for parents.
