Our Story

Rug Rats Soft Play Hire! Available throughout the wider Christchurch area. 
Hey, I’m Christina and this is my family - My husband Tom, our two “Rug Rats” Ava and Mason, but we also can’t forget Freddy our dog. We are the faces and paws behind Rug Rats.
A bit about us, Tom runs his own building company creating amazing spaces for families all over Christchurch and as for me - well I’ve been home raising our two little ones and it’s been a ride to say the least! After having Mason at the end of 2021 and Ava’s Birthday falling 3 weeks after his birth, I was trying to pull together a beautiful party for her during that hectic newborn stage. We got there but it did get me wondering what would have made it easier. Christchurch was lacking gross motor, active party options that come to you, specifically for our littlest loves and this made me think why not look into that more. With ideas circulating at those early morning feeds, it hit me, Rug Rats - Soft Play! Open ended, imaginative, cute colours and most importantly – FUN! So here we are ready to bring you this amazing service, catering to all your little ones events - if you have under 5’s attending we are here to help you entertain them!
We look forward to you joining us in our exciting venture and creating memorable moments for your “Rug Rats”. Hope to talk to you soon.
