Waterstones, Orchard Square: 3 Reasons Why It’s Great For Toddlers | Child-friendly cafe & play area

I recently discovered how good Waterstone’s book shop in Orchard Square, Sheffield is for kids. Of course, being a book worm, I’ve been in there far too many times but didn’t quite realise how good of a resource it is for children… with the small play area and really nice, family friendly cafe! Here’s 3 quick reasons why I love it…

Waterstones, Orchard Square:

3 Reasons Why It’s Great For Toddlers

  1. There’s a climbing frame and slide in the children’s book section! And a colouring table. Yay! Eric loves this and it’s just a quick option for when he wants something to do and we’re in the city centre. Plus, it’s free to visit.

2. There’s a lovely family friendly cafe which serves nice cakes (including gluten free and vegan options), sandwiches and snacks, plus hot and cold drinks. High Chairs are available and there is a box of toys, with books and colouring, too. Kids can get a free baby chino and there are changing facilities available.

3. Who doesn’t love a good book shop?! Waterstones is a relaxing place to be and if you love books, you’re in the right place. But, it’s also a great place for nice little gifts and educational children’s toys/activities. Aside from a fantastic variety of books for adults and children of all ages, there is a lovely range of gifts, greeting cards, board games and trinkets. I recommend signing up for their free loyalty card – the points do stack up and it’s a great option for treating yourself or using your points for a christmas/birthday gift. Plus, there’s often cool little extras happening for children at this store, such as singing and story time sessions free of charge in the school holidays, childrens book competitions, book singings and much more; I recommend signing up to their free newsletter to keep up to date with that.

Thanks for reading! I hope you found this useful.
