Play Collections


Real world collections of everyday household items are a great resource for encouraging your children to engage in role play, helping to support their learning and understanding of the real world while stimulating their imagination.

Before I throw anything out or in to the recycling, I always consider whether it might be repurposed for one of our many collections. Do the same and you’ll be amazed at how quickly you build up your own.

Here’s just a few of our role play collections and ideas for what to include:

Hairdressers – Bottles, toiletries, old hairdryers or straighteners (with the cord cut off), brushes and combs, telephone, mirrors, scissors (just make sure they’re children’s ones!), diary, hair magazines.
