Busy Little Monsters Role Play Village is a perfectly sized tiny town including a salon, café, supermarket, vets, construction site, police station, laundry and village green complete with ice cream stand and soft play features.

This bright and beautiful role play village has been lovingly designed by a former primary school teacher to encourage the imaginations of inquisitive and curious children as they explore, discover and play. The aim is to offer a welcoming, educational and sensory-stimulating environment which provides the opportunity for all children to engage in imaginative and creative play time.

The village is purpose-built for children under 7 years. Steady, confident walkers will love exploring all that the busy village has to offer, while parents with young babies can access the immersive sensory room, full of lights, textures and sounds to delight the youngest of little monsters.

Busy Little Monsters’ role play stations have been designed to appeal to children aged approximately 1 year and upwards.

From babies to the end of Key Stage 1 (infant school), children will be inspired to play creatively and imaginatively, developing fine motor skills and problem-solving, while being encouraged to talk about their learning along the way.

Our soft-play features allow children to explore their adventurous side, encouraging balance, strength and coordination while also learning the importance of turn-taking.

Sensory Room: SEN – Our sensory room is available for private hire for people of all ages (please see the booking page for availability or contact us to make an enquiry).

Children can enjoy ‘real life’ situations through role play and play pretend as any of the roles in the brightly coloured and wonderful little village – and it’s all at their perfect size and scale.

Teacher-led activities to nurture your child’s imagination, creativity and love of learning through play.

Guided activities are optional and children with more energy may enjoy exploring independently.

Former teacher and class host Holly enjoys patrolling the village and interacting with the children so they can make the most of their experience!

In line with the EYFS curriculum, Holly loves to encourage Talk for Learning to support children’s language development.

Parents can expect the highest standard of toys and equipment, to provide the best opportunity for quality imaginative play as well as being a safe environment for your children to enjoy.

Parents can enjoy a hot drink and cake (subject to availability) from our micro-café while their children explore.

“It was our first time at Busy Little Monsters today and my son LOVED it! Holly was fabulous (as she always is). The resources provided were excellent quality for really in-depth role play, the stalls were engaging and fun too! It’s such a lovely resource to have in Buxton. I also have a 3 month old and the baby area was fantastically filled with age and stage appropriate toys so that the experience was fun for them too. You have found regulars in us!”

“Today was our first visit to the pop-up play village & my 3 year old absolutely loved it. All the ‘stations’ are so well thought out with top quality, beautiful accessories for each. We’ll definitely be back again soon.”

“Today we came to play for a second time xx Matilda who’s 3 loves it, and Wyatt who is 1 is learning each time we come how to play Nicely with the toys.”
