South West Yorkshire
Welcome to Little City South West Yorkshire- A brand new franchise opening September 2021!
We are an entirely mobile role play City for the under 5’s to explore, discover and enjoy. Utilising our bespoke backdrops and specially selected high-quality wooden toys and equipment, your child can fully immerse themselves in their own world. As well as enhancing all of their developmental needs.
The benefit of us being mobile is that we can reach families in a variety of areas and locations making it easier to meet friends and not have to go against the inner city traffic to reach us. The locations of village halls and community centres give the Little City a warm and friendly environment for you and your child to enjoy.
Little city is a structured role play area with the advantage for your child being able to explore at their own pace whether that is driving around in a fast police car or simply making you a cup of tea.
We pride ourselves on being a clean area for your children to play. Hence that every toy and station is deep cleaned before and after you have explored the city.
Little city is a chance for you to have some quality time with your child/children whilst in the knowledge that they are gaining new skills and knowledge simply through play. It is also a chance for families to meet socially and gain new friendships along the way.
Sessions are priced at £7.00 and last 1hr. Most sessions are in the morning. However you may find one or two in the afternoon due to popular demand. Whilst you are at Little City you can also purchase tea, coffee, and light refreshments for you and your little ones.
Little City South West Yorkshire will be covering mainly areas in Barnsley such as Silkstone, Wilthorpe and Darton, and also some regions of Wakefield and Huddersfield.
Hello! Thank you for visiting our page. We are two mums from Barnsley who are beyond excited about introducing Little City to the South West Yorkshire area!
I’m Amy, mum to Ed who is 4 and Remi who is 3. We live with their Dad Joel. I’ve been a Cardiac Physiologist working in the NHS for the past 17 years. Since becoming a mum I’ve been mulling over a change in career and through a bit of research I came across Little City. My boys absolutely love role play and it’s played a big part of our lives before and during lockdown. The concept of Little City grabbed me, and the thought of being mobile and flexible was very appealing as it means I can spend more time with the kids and I’ll be able to pick them up from school.
Hello, I’m Rachael, I’m married to Jody and we have two beautiful children, Bella who is 9 and Gio who is 7. I currently run my own business as a hairdresser and have been in the hair industry for 26 years. I decided to take this exciting opportunity to open Little City South West Yorkshire with my good friend Amy because I love to spend time with children and role play in particular is very close to my heart as it was Bella’s favourite form of play. We spent countless hours playing together in her Cafe serving each other numerous cakes and drinks while Gio would always take care of the till! I am really looking forward to having the opportunity to get to know our new Little City members and hopefully experience some of those magical times with them too.
We are both passionate about bringing the city to Yorkshire and even though neither of us has previous experience of working with kids we are confident that we will create a fun and stimulating environment. We can’t wait to get started, it's been a long time coming since 1st making contact a few weeks before Lockdown number 1!
Looking forward to meeting all of the Little City visitors.

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!)
