WiLD THiNGS Play Project: Indoor play doesn’t have to be plastic to be fun!

What is the WiLD THiNGS Play Project? Indoor play doesn’t have to be plastic to be fun!

We believe that all children, regardless of whether they grow up in the countryside or inner city, deserve to experience play in the natural world. But as parents we found the only real play available on the high street was generic, plastic, overpopulated and noisy soft play (not to mention the sugar-fuelled food and drink!).

We’ve set out to bring the feeling of wide open spaces to the city – reWiLDing urban spaces in a way never seen before. Our immersive indoor play area uses all-natural materials to recreate the feel of outdoor play and allow kids’ imaginations to run WiLD.

More than just a play space, we’re a thriving hub for all things child-based in the local community – from kids birthday parties to craft workshops and storytelling.

We think there’s a better way to do things round here – come and say hello and see for yourself!

Soft play reimagined A different way to play

We are not a soft play – we’re something different. When you visit our indoor play area here at Cribbs Causeway, you won’t find plastic foam covering every edge and corner, or ball pools hiding a cushioned floor.

When the confines of a traditional soft play environment are removed, we find children play a different way. They slow down, they take more care of each other and their surroundings – making for a more meaningful, creative and sensory play experience.

At our urban indoor playground you’ll find lots of wood, wood chips, sand, buckets and chains. Rest assured, our playground is fully certified. There’s certainly more hard surfaces, hidden nooks to explore, and natural, real-world forms to experience. This is done deliberately to allow children’s imaginations to roam free and experience first-hand nature play in a way many children, particularly those who grow up inside a city, may not often get the chance.

WiLD THiNGS Play Project: An indoor play area with cafe in Bristol

Designed for kids AND adults to enjoy Barista coffees and artisan teas come as standard

Of course our play space offers oodles of fun opportunities for the children to play. But play is more fun if it’s intergenerational and we’ve designed our spaces with this in mind. Children love to play with their grown ups, so you’ll find plenty of seating and joint play opportunities littered throughout our space.

As parents ourselves, we know a truly spectacular play experience needs to cater for adults as well as children. And we’ve gone to great lengths to design and curate a beautiful space for parents to appreciate just as much as the kids. Sit back and relax in our play cafe with a barista coffee, TeaPigs tea, indulgent hot chocs and an outrageously mouth-watering selection of cakes and snacks.
