Every child loves to role play

At home our own toddlers and pre-schoolers want to constantly play at being hairdressers, police officers, bakers, serve in cafes, dress-up and of course, go shopping. Tiny Town Play offers local children the opportunity to do this with the best quality, (mainly wooden) equipment and toys. That you would struggle to fit into your own living rooms.

Tiny Town Play is a place where your little ones can dress up and get into character through imaginative play.

Role play is more than just fun. It is an important element of learning. Children learn from experience: from what happens around them, from what they see, hear, smell, taste and touch. To absorb those experiences and make sense of the world, they need to be engaged in imaginary play. Encouraging our children to play and have fun will develop healthy connections and choices in life.

As children play, they develop fundamental cognitive, social, emotional, and physical skills. Young children also learn practical life skills such as dressing themselves, how to cooperate, and share with others. Playing is a child’s way of engaging and pretending. It creates alternate realities to the real world.
