The Wild Things Play Project is an indoor play centre at The Mall, Cribbs Causeway. We were kindly invited to visit to check out the new room that has been added since we last visited.
The play centre incorporates a lot of natural materials through the wooden tree house playframe, sand play, and bark chippings. There are buckets on a pulley system that you can fill with bark chippings or sand, hoist them up and tip the contents down chutes – ready to do it all over again! These were a big hit with my two!
I did a lot of chasing around the playframe and going down the slides! My two also really liked the play house in the sand area.
The new room is huge and makes the play centre feel very spacious. The room has a tent (pictured above), wooden blocks, more sand play, climbing apparatus, and other toys.
You can find it right in the middle of The Mall, above the Gromit Shop and Food Court area.
It is a great alternative play space to a soft play in Bristol. Great coffee and cakes!
