In May 2018 a new place opened called World of their Own,which is a vintage Wild West themed play space, unlike anywhere else we’ve been.
This place encourages role play and imagination. It is set out like a mini town with a Bank, Saloon, Jail and Shooting Range. With plenty of fancy dress to choose from, kids are encouraged to get into character.
The guys running this place are excellent. They have put a lot of thought into the design, right down to the padded floors, to create a safe space.
Aimed primarily at 4 – 9 year olds it is definitely suitable for younger ones. We first took my son when he was 14 months old and he loved the bouncy castle, climbing through all the tunnels and running in and out of the Saloons and Sheriffs Jail. We had great fun trying on all the different cowboy and girl outfits.
Although all ages are welcome at the session. They also run sessions exclusively for pre-schoolers.
Spaces are limited at all the sessions so book via their website or Facebook page.
If you are looking for somewhere for an amazing kids birthday party, look no further as you can also hire this venue.
After the kids have had a play you can either visit the Grass Roots cafe it serves really delicious homemade food or eat in the Cowboy Cantina.
UPDATE FEB 2020
Last week we visited World of their Own at their new home on Hornbeam Park.
We were already big fans of this place and were delighted when we heard they were moving here.
It’s the same great offering but ever so slightly bigger. There’s some extra bits as well as a coffee shop saloon, where parents can chill with a coffee and cake while the little ones play.
They have general play sessions three times a day Tuesday to Friday and have specific toddler play sessions on Tuesday and Friday mornings. We went to the Tuesday morning toddler session where we met cowgirl Jessie who kept the kids really entertained with special missions campfire games and singsong. Well known from her time at Performatots the kids instantly warmed to her
The cafe area is a lovely addition in the new place. They have a highchair available for little ones and a toilet with baby changing room.
The new venue is really accessible by public transport with it being two minutes walk from Hornbeam Park Station.
There’s exciting things to come later this year. They have a space upstairs which will be transformed into an Enchanted Fairy Village 🧚🏻♀️
