My dh is due to be made redundant at the end of the year after working for the same company for 32 years!
Anyway he is thinking of the future & has come up with an idea for a business, but would like feedback from various sources.
He is thinking of opening a soft play area with a difference in that it would be mobile, (built inside a double decker bus)so that he can take it out to rural areas where there is not much chance of some families being able to access this type of activity without own transport. We live in West Sussex in one of the larger towns & although there is a small area here the nearest big ones are in other towns which, apart from one, you would need to drive to, to access the soft play.
Would mumsnetters be interested in using this type of facility & if so what would you like to see included, bearing in mind its small size.

hi badger - somebody operates that type of thing round here (midlands) and hires the bus out for parties - it's a huge success.

my neighbour used to run a similar scheme in that it was a bus that travelled around the area, setting up at set points during the week. They used to do usual things like painting, dressing up, water play, etc. I think it was very popular. Good luck to you.

That already exists here and apparently is quite popular. Not used just by people who can't get to that kind of area because if you are that rural then u would drive.

NOt something i would use but i don't rreally know why tbh

I live in town and am lucky enough to have loads of soft play/toddler groups but that sounds like a great idea for people 'in the sticks'
