Welcome to Little City Epping and Harlow - the award-winning mobile role play experience for toddlers and preschoolers.

If your little one loves to role-play, then come and visit our toddler-sized city! Whether they want to be a shop-keeper, vet, builder, fire-fighter, take a twirl in fancy dress or whizz around on our ride-on vehicles there is something for everyone at Little City!

Designed for confident walkers up to the age of 5 years (we extend this up to 6 years during school holidays) the sessions are entirely child-led and packed with high-quality toys to help your little ones learn. Group sizes are limited to ensure the city doesn't get too crowded. There are 10 different bays to explore, plus enhancement areas, at every session!
Little City is fully mobile and can be taken almost anywhere! We offer sessions across Epping and Harlow and the surrounding areas, including Sawbridgeworth, Ongar, North Weald Bassett and Roydon.

Little City sessions are pay as you go, with no termly fees. Sessions are £8.50 per child for 1 hour and 15 minutes playing time. There is no additional charge for accompanying adults or non-walking siblings. If you book for 3 or more children you will automatically receive a discount at check-out. Refreshments, including hot drinks, can be purchased during the sessions.

Booking is essential and tickets for public sessions are available via Bookwhen. To keep up to date with where we will be holding weekly sessions; check out our Facebook and Instagram page.

Little City Epping and Harlow is also available for private party hire, preschool, nursery, school and SEND group hire.

We can't wait to welcome you for some role-play fun soon!

Hi, I’m Alison the new owner of Little City Epping and Harlow. I live in Bishop’s Stortford with my partner, Paul, our two children Anna (6) and George (8 months) and our very naughty, but much loved cat, Bluebell!
I’ve been a teacher for 18 years, mainly in Reception and Year 1, so I know how important and beneficial role playing is to children’s early learning and development.
I first discovered Little City while scrolling through social media (in the middle of the night whilst holding a restless baby George!) The bright backdrops and gorgeous toys immediately caught my attention - plus it looked like everyone was having so much fun learning through their play!! Coincidentally a few days later, a friend mentioned she had been to Little City with her toddler and said how amazing it was - I knew I needed to find out more and then I was hooked! I contacted Vicki and here I am…
I am so, so excited to be joining the Little City team and cannot wait to meet lots of lovely families and their little ones for some role play adventures!


Little City Online Shop!

The toys we buy for our cities are ones that we think not only look good, provide lots of wonderful play opportunities, but are also are built to last.

All the products available in the online shop are items that we've tried and tested: the kids love them, and we love them so much, we want you to be able to take them home (and we know they're durable as they get a LOT of play at our sessions!)
