Jabberwocky is a one-of-a-kind soft play and café, and will remind adults of their days at school studying the famous poem while introducing children to a unique play experience! Your little ones will journey into the heart of the dragon and explore, solving puzzles and having fun, before sliding out via the dragon's mouth.
The play frame was designed especially for the Jabberwocky soft play and café and reaches the highest safety standards. Children age 2+ are welcome to play inside the structure, and there is a baby area for younger adventurers.
While your young ones are fighting the dragon and having great fun doing it, parents and guardians are welcome to relax in the café. Jabberwocky is situated in a beautiful Victorian building and the food and drink on offer is just as elegant! Why not have some artisan coffee by Glen Lyon Coffee, choose from a great selection of teas, sip local hot chocolate or even have some locally-produced ice cream? They also serve nutritious food—in child-sized portions, too—and there's even a reading cycle bookshelf, where you're free to take any book you like as long as you bring one to swap.
Jabberwocky also offers birthday parties, with extras easily available. As you might expect from a soft play inspired by Alice in Wonderland's author, they include Mad Hatter's Tea Parties! Your child and their guests can enjoy face painting, magic parties, messy play, discos and even 3D-printing parties.
