I was invited by Playstreet to come along with my daughter, Ava and try out the pop up role-play centre in Broadstone, Dorset. This was perfect for us as the forecast for the day was looking miserable and with not much planned at home (and with the prospect of back-to-back PawPatrol or getting the paints out) I was eager to get out of the house and try an indoor activity. So we went along Playstreet or the real life "Cbeebies' Biggleton" as Ava called it!
Playstreet is a role play pop up centre, set up with little pods for the children to play in. There is a mini cafe, shop, theatre, post office etc and lots of ride ons which proved to be a great hit with the kids. As this activity is 'pop-up' meaning the locations change around Dorset you need to follow the Playstreet's Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/Playstreetdorset/ (and website coming soon) to find out the location and dates.
We visited the United Reformed Church Hall in Broadstone and this had ample parking nearby (thankfully as the weather was awful the morning). There are refreshments and seating available for the grown-ups so you might just be able to enjoy a cup of tea in peace (if you're lucky!)
Emily Sills who runs Playstreet is passionate about encouraging babies and toddlers to explore their imagination and learn through play. Her experience as a mum of three and background as primary school teacher has helped Playstreet grow into a great place to do just that.
Playstreet is also available for parties and private hire for weddings and private functions which is which a great idea!
If you are looking for an indoor activity for babies/toddlers in Dorset definitely check out Playstreet. Spaces get booked up pretty quickly so follow on Facebook for up-to-date session information and for upcoming dates: https://www.facebook.com/Playstreetdorset/ Thanks for having us at Playstreet, there are not many places in Dorset where Ava could live out being Frozen's Princess Elsa who was riding a fire engine in a post office! - we'll be back again!
