Welcome to Little City, Leicester! Does your little one love playing pretend? If so, Little City Leicester is the place to be. Little City is an award-winning mobile role play experience for your little one to explore learning through play, imitating everyday jobs and lives. Whether they want to be a shopkeeper, firefighter, hairdresser, builder, take a twirl in fancy dress or whizz around on our ride-on vehicles there is something for everyone at Little City. We have lots of high-quality toys to help little imaginations run wild.
The miniature city is designed for pre-school children (up to age 6 in school holidays) the sessions are child led allowing children to choose where they want to explore. Each session is 1 hour 15 minutes and group sizes are limited to ensure children have the opportunity to explore every part of the city and it does not become overcrowded. Parents are free to release their inner child and explore the city too or stand back and enjoy seeing your little one immerse in their imagination with one of the refreshments on offer.
One of the best things about Little City is that it is fully mobile and can be set up almost anywhere. We have 10 stations for the children to explore plus an enhancement area that changes often to ensure those attending regularly never get bored. We will be offering multiple sessions across Leicester and Leicestershire on a pay as you go basis. All sessions can be booked online and if you book for 3 or more children you will automatically receive a discount.
Whilst Little City Leicester is the newest city we join a larger team who have won awards and have lots of raving reviews and we cannot wait to welcome you and your little one to Little City Leicester.
Little City Leicester will also be available for hire to schools, nurseries and pre-schools as well as birthday parties.
I'm Gema and I am the face behind Little City Leicester! I first discovered Little City when a friend sent me a link to the website asking if there was anything like Little City in Leicester! My reply no! From then on, I thought what a great idea and quickly became a Little City social media stalker. I loved the concept and look of Little City and knew Leicester needed something like it for all the little people.
I am usually a 'play it safe' kind of person but I believe there is a need for this type of role play experience in Leicester and I know that if there was a Little City in Leicester before my eldest son went to school he would of loved it and for me knowing Leicester has nothing like this to offer pre-school aged children I knew I had to give children in the area the opportunity to attend a Little City. After speaking with Vicki (founder of Little City) I was sold, and quickly started looking at the endless possibilities of role play toys.
I am a mum of two young boys aged 5 and nearly one (lockdown baby - poor child). I am completely outnumbered in a house full of football loving boys and 5 year old who sometimes thinks he's a dog!
As life slowly starts to get back to some normality or a new normal I am so excited to Launch Little City Leicester and meet lots of lovely new people.

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!)
