The term "soft play" in itself is annoying. The opposite, "hard play", is not in everyday use, and quite rightly so, because it sounds ridiculous. So the word "soft" is redundant. It's just "play". Just say "play".

If I wanted to hide all petty threads and references to rude mothers then I'd be here all fucking day. grin

OT but soft play is definitley a modern term. I remember going to the equivalents when I was young (I'm 25) but when I first heard people taking about soft play, I felt I had missed out. <woe> grin

Like Uni and all that shit

usualsuspect Sun 06-Jan-13 09:45:00

Hard play would be fab. grin

Realistically I know why the word "soft" is used. It's because the toys involved are soft.

But what else are you going to put in a health-and-safety-approved communal playpen? Wolves? Rusty spikes?

loads of mums pushing drugs from the tables near the cafe.

ROAR at wolves

Yeah, White lightning cider for sale in the cafe. A boxing ring for the rude mums to slug it out.

and " leave it, she aint worf it" being piped from the speakers when the industrial type sound effects pause.

No one has mentioned the 'grubby looking child' playing next to ones Rosie cheeked cherub that smells of talc at all times, giving said perfect child all manner of diseases. And nits. Don't forget the nits.
