Video Tour: What It's Like To Grow Up In The Playboy Mansion
Hugh Hefner's son, Cooper Hefner, leads a video tour of the house he grew up in: The Playboy Mansion.
Cooper's mother is former Playmate of the Year and Hefner's second wife Kimberly Conrad, and at 23, Cooper is Hefner's youngest son. While the Playboy Mansion was a little more family-friendly during Conrad's youth than it was in the decades before, he still has a lot of fun memories to share in a video tour from Business Insider.
Cooper says he enjoys the game house, full of arcade games and a pool table, as his preferred place to hang out. He shows off the jukebox full of old standards (and reveals he doesn't know who Glenn Miller is, if you want to feel old).
Cooper also shows off the animals on the ground. The mansion has a private zoo permit, and lots of rescued birds and exotic animals reside there. Fun fact: We learned on our trip to Animal Tracks that one little squirrel monkey at the Playboy Mansion was attacked by another and injured his hand, so he now lives at Animal Tracks now instead—which, if you can't get an invite to the Playboy Mansion, is a great place to pet exotic animals.
Cooper did not reveal anything about the secret Playboy Mansion tunnels.
