About

Anna, inspired by her children, set up a play centre with a difference.

The new mini role-play experience for young children is the brainchild of Anna Anderson from Meads. With three children, she spotted a gap in the local market for imaginative play experiences, rather than the traditional soft play offering.

Former nanny and entrepreneur, Anna said: “The ‘mini city’ concept is not an entirely new one. A large one opened in London in 2015 but what makes us very different is our Centre and pop-up ability. We aim to travel to venues across Eastbourne as well as nursery schools, festivals and events.”

The scaled down version of a typical town, provides role-play adventure and imaginative play sessions for children aged up to 7 years old.  KiddiCity, run by kids, comprises 11 play zones, each was designed in Eastbourne and made in East Sussex.  These include an Diner, Fire Station, Supermarket, Park equipped for picnics and barbeques, a Construction Site, Medi-Centre, and a Garage.

Role play is credited with helping small children develop communication and problem-solving skills – many of whom will have missed out on imaginative play opportunities with peers over the pandemic. By encouraging children to develop their own storylines, we empower them and help build their confidence.”
