Welcome to Busy Little Monsters!

About Us Busy Little Monsters - Role Play Village

Busy Little Monsters Role Play Village is a perfectly sized tiny town including a salon, café, supermarket, vets, construction site, police station, laundry and village green complete with ice cream stand and soft play features.

This bright and beautiful role play village has been lovingly designed by a former primary school teacher to encourage the imaginations of inquisitive and curious children as they explore, discover and play. The aim is to offer a welcoming, educational and sensory-stimulating environment which provides the opportunity for all children to engage in imaginative and creative play time.

The village is purpose-built for children under 7 years. Steady, confident walkers will love exploring all that the busy village has to offer, while parents with young babies can access the immersive sensory room, full of lights, textures and sounds to delight the youngest of little monsters. Busy Little Monsters’ role play stations have been designed to appeal to children aged approximately 1 year and upwards. From babies to the end of Key Stage 1 (infant school), children will be inspired to play creatively and imaginatively, developing fine motor skills and problem-solving, while being encouraged to talk about their learning along the way. Our soft-play features allow children to explore their adventurous side, encouraging balance, strength and coordination while also learning the importance of turn-taking.

Parents can enjoy a hot drink and cake (subject to availability) from our micro-café while their children explore.

SEN – Our sensory room is available for private hire for people of all ages (please see our booking page for availability or contact us to make an enquiry).


Little Music Monsters

Our popular music and sensory classes have followed us to our new venue! These fantastic teacher-led classes have been running for over 8 years and continue to delight the babies and toddlers of Buxton.

What’s on for Older Monsters?
