Soft Play Centres

playing at soft play centresThis is where you’ll find our soft play centre reviews. We visit a ton of soft play centres with our son, mostly in Oldham, Saddleworth, Tameside and the Rochdale areas, but sometimes further afield when we’re taking breaks around the UK.

Bear in mind that whenever we review a soft play centre, we do so based on our experience of it which can be hugely affected by the age of our son. For example, we’ve been to centres we love where parents of older children find there isn’t enough for them to do. Similarly, some of the best rated soft play centres in the North West didn’t really work out for us because the offering for toddlers wasn’t particularly good.

Our oldest son is 2, so he’s kind of too big for basic toddler areas but not really big enough to hold his own on a huge frame or massive slides. So do bear in mind when reading our reviews that your experience might be different for any number of reasons.

Incidentally, if anyone knows any amazing soft play centres in the North West, do contact me and let me know. I’m always up for trying new ones :)

We live really close to a soft play centre – we can literally walk there in 20 mins or drive in 5. But it’s fairly small and with an 11 month old, we’re focussed really…
