Little Play Place was born when Rayna and Robin were both longing for an imaginative play space for Juniper. She is Little Play Place’s official toy tester and will often be found helping (and playing) around Little Play Place!

Meet Robin


Also known as Grandma, Robin was born in Brooklyn, New York and made Tampa Bay her home in the 1980’s. She is a mother of three and grandmother of three (and growing)! Robin has over 20 years experience in the medical industry. Her past experience also includes owning & operating a medical communications and education company with her late husband. 

Little Play Place was designed for purposeful play and carefully curated learning opportunities. We are not only a play space, but an intentional space to make memories and help your child learn, grow, and reach their developmental potential.

The fun is in the exploring! Pretend play encourages a child’s imagination and creativity as well as supports their social and emotional development.

Each play space has been designed with the assistance of our Play Panel™ composed of parents, early childhood educators, play therapists, pediatric occupational therapists and speech pathologists.

The Little Littles is our baby area. It features sensory toys and a few role-play dress ups designed to provide interest and stimulation for the smallest of people.

Sunshine, heat, cold, or rain, Little Play Place is Tampa’s best all-weather spot for making childhood memories.

Little Play Place an indoor Tampa Bay play space providing imaginative play, fun, and learning to develop young minds.

We are a mother-daughter (and grand daughter) small business born in Carrollwood, Florida. We believe that kids should be allowed to be kids!

“This is the most adorable play place I’ve ever been to! It’s not the type of physical play place with mats and large spaces to run, it’s completely unique and perfect for imaginative play!

There are multiple different areas like a salon, an office, a grocery store, a house, a school, etc… and everything is at your kids level. It’s extremely clean, bright, and cheerful.

There is also a small section in the front for younger children with a pikler triangle and soft mats and toys.

Seriously, if you need something to do during the day with your kids GO HERE. If there is a subscription, this would be the perfect gift from grandparents!”
