Custom Travel Mug with bottomless tea and coffee!

We've worked with Frank Green to create a custom designed reusable cup. Every time you bring this cup into our play cafe you can use it for unlimited cups of tea and americano coffee. The cup itself is gorgeous - ceramic lined so your drink tastes great and stainless steel so it stays hot. It'll be an indispensable addition to your bag every day regardless of whether you're coming to see us.

Expectant Parent Gift

We'll continue to run our weekly Babes In Arms Club sessions in our event space when we open. These are for parents with babies under one. They're a chance to hang out with other great people who are in the same boat as you. This reward would be for 26 sessions (six months worth) which can be taken non-consecutively so you get your monies worth. It's a gift of friendship with tea, coffee and treats every week in that first year of parenthood.

A Company Away Day with 100% more JOY

Finding an inspiring venue in York to help your team be creative is tough. This reward would be for exclusive full days use of our event space - we think this would be comfortable for about 20 people to do team building exercises or have an away day. It would include morning and afternoon break refreshments and a buffet lunch. Plus a 90 minute exclusive play session for employee or client families when you're done talking shop for the day.

1 Pre Paid Adult Entry Into The Play Cafe

We're charging every adult through our doors a fiver. But before you kick off about that... this £5 is redeemable against cafe purchases, so it's basically down-payment on that coffee and cake you were going to have anyway. Pledge a fiver to help us open and get your adult entry pre paid for your first visit.
