This weekend, we went to check out the new soft play in Poole. I went with my three children who are 5 and under and we had an absolute fabulous time.

The first thing I noted when I walked in was how spacious the place was. There are not too many tables so it feels very open, as well as it being a beautiful space.

They also have just received a 5 star BCP Food Hygiene rating (December 2023)

There is a soft play of tasteful colours that match the aesthetically pleasing look of the place. The soft play was great fun with lots of dynamic spaces, slides along with a designated baby area and a ball pit.

There is a very large space towards the back with a beautiful and extremely large natural coloured rug on the floor. It is a perfect place to sit with your little ones if you don't want to be up at the table.

There is opportunities on the rug to play with toys, role play and read books as well as the soft play. The rug area is a calmer space and encouraged children to use their imagination and play together or alongside one another.

The children loved having a babycino and some yummy snacks!

Easy to park, even on a Saturday.

The parking was free and I was even able to get a child space.

It was a very small walk from the car park space to the soft-play, so we walked and I didn't need the buggy.

The toilets were clean, with a nappy changer.

There was clean highchairs available

Tables and chairs in clusters

Hot drinks, beverages and snacks available
