Imagiplay Play Centre

What's Inside?

Marlowe’s Makes Imagiplay is Dorsets latest children’s play centre for under 8’s. The focus is very much on inspiring children to be creative and use their imagination through play. The centre acts as a drop-in, there is no need to pre-book and playtime isn’t limited to sessions.

The Playroom


The playroom is our main themed indoor play area, our current theme is ‘winter wonderland’.

This area features our large loose parts play set amongst other toys. Our set up is very much focussed around allowing children to be what they want to be, pretend, create and imagine without restrictions. Our play area is spacious and uncluttered. Less is more.

Why not join us for a snowball fight or cosy up in our very unique igloo.

Baby Area

We have a small cosy baby area situated in front of the playroom, enabling you to supervise and interact with your toddlers if you also have a baby. You can make camp around our comfy squishy rug where babies have access to lots of sensory materials and baskets.

We have a play gym and a bouncy chair for our smallest visitors.

The long room is our interactive play area with lots of wall activities to spark children’s curiosity. From ball runs, magnetic to giant pegboards and our latest addition our pom, pom board!

If your child likes to tinker then this is the space for you.

Gravel Pit

Don’t forget the gravel shoot!

The gravel pit has to be one of our biggest attractions. Instead of sand, we’ve gone full-on gravel. Within our large garden children can dig, load and dump truckloads of gravel in our designated gravel pit.

No child’s garden is complete with out some form of kitchen. Forget mud kitchens, that’s a thing of the past, say hello to our new gravel kitchen.

Loaded with real pots, pans and cups children can have a medieval feast. What’s your favourite dish?
