About Us

Whats special about our village?

Mini Buttons is a magical role-play village designed to inspire children to engage in purposeful play that is pure and simple!  Children can pretend to be whoever they want to be, whilst making sense of the world we live in. Our carefully created “role-play pods” are designed to replicate a little village including a cafe, medical centre, vet, construction site, and other charming village favourites that encourage and inspire play with every last detail being considered.  Through role-play, children learn fundamental skills all while making memories and having lots having fun. Our village has been created by a fantastic team Juleigh (owner/designer) & Chris husband and wife, Teree & Chimene (founders of Cutie Patootie) , Fred our amazing Carpenter & Chantel (Dainty Lotus). Juleigh owner of Mini Buttons – has two beautiful children. She not only loves children but has a huge passion for creativity. Through her children, she understands the importance of children’s play and being able to have the freedom to use their imaginations.

Our warm and friendly staff known as our Magic Makers will check you in, introduce themselves and the village in a playful and charming manner.  Children are then encouraged to explore and discover all that our magical village has to offer and the fun really begins when the child’s imagination is set free. Our little villagers choose where to play and for how long.  Our magic makers gently reignite play whenever necessary and parents are invited to engage with their children and encourage exploration too.  While the children play, our magic makers will discreetly clean up and return bits and bobs to each role-play pod so they can be played with over and over again. For the last 5 minutes of each play session, a “clean up” song will be played to encourage children to help tidy up and prepare them for home time. Parents and carers must remain on site and are free to enjoy a delicious coffee made by our skilled barista while chatting to friends or catching up on work at our coffee bar. We offer an assortment of baked goods
