HappyJacks Soft Play is a family run mobile soft play hire business catering for the 0-5 year olds with the addition of regular weekly play sessions & various classes for 0-12 yr olds in and around the Eastbourne, East Sussex area.
We provide professional soft play equipment on a fully matted area. Our sessions and equipment encourages your children to use their imagination and at the same time furthering their social skills and co-ordination through play.
We started HappyJacks Soft Play because we were frustrated with the large soft play centres where our little ones would always get pushed about by the older ones or get lost and only have a small sectioned off area for the U5's. With HappyJacks Soft Play we can bring the fun to you where you can keep an eye on your children and feel much more relaxed at the same time, whatever the occasion!

I have an 8 month year old who goes to Happy Jacks twice a week during term time. The venue is great, equipment’s really clean and there are lots for my boy to play with. As he’s so young we play in the baby area where he can play with the baby toys, mess about in the soft play or have some quiet time with me. The class is great for improving confidence and interacting with other babies, it’s something he really enjoys going to. Donna and Jaki who run Happy Jacks are fantastic, they’re very welcoming, enthusiastic and enjoy spending time with you and the children.
My two boys have been going to Happy Jacks once or sometimes twice a week since it opened and they absolutely love it. Jaki and Donna who run the centre are brilliant; they’re really welcoming and friendly and the atmosphere there is fantastic. They make a lot of effort with the children and get them playing all sorts of different games my youngest goes in the baby area and loves trying all their new games whilst my eldest loves the dressing up box and the building blocks. It’s fantastic value for money and it’s something the kids look forward to going to every week.
I take my daughter to Happy Jacks twice a week and she has a brilliant time. There is a ball pit and loads of different toys to play with. Jaki runs happy jacks is really friendly and welcoming to all the mums and dads who are playing with their children. It is a wonderful place to take your under 5’s and there’s always a lovely atmosphere for the kids and adults.
My daughter Penny absolutely loves coming here. It's a struggle to even get her shoes off some days as she runs through the door to start playing! Great for the mums too as little tuck shop has everything a tired mum could want at exceptionally low prices! Caffeine, cake, and snacks for the little ones! We both love happy jacks, penny for a good play and mummy for a good rest!
HappyJacks is simply brilliant! My daughter and I have gone to most play groups in Eastbourne and we believe HappyJacks to be the best.
Run by two very nice and professional ladies, it offers a perfect friendly environment for 0-5 year olds to have fun, learn and most importantly develop social skills. If you want your child to advance HappyJacks is the place.
I’m a fan because before HappyJacks my 19 month old daughter used to be a bit shy, quiet and wobbly on her feet. Now she can say the full alphabet, count to 20, has learnt to climb a slide, throw a ball and mixes well with others thanks to HappyJacks.
With a tea shop selling fresh cakes and healthy snacks it’s also great for parents to meet new like-minded friends and talk. The tea shop ladies are nice too.
With good facilities, excellent activities and a safe environment for babies, toddlers, and young children alike to play in, we rate HappyJacks the no.1 baby group in Eastbourne.

Hi my name is Jaki and I own HappyJacks SoftPlay. I am a former pupil of St.Bedes School and have lived in Eastbourne all my life. I previously trained as a gymnastics coach which included Pre-School Movement, have managed a local 5 star Hotel Health Club and more recently, worked for the Council at their Sports Centres before leaving to have my own children, Alex 6yrs and Abi 3yrs.
I started HappyJacks Soft Play because I was frustrated with the large soft play centres where my children would always get pushed about by the older ones, or worse still would get lost amongst the others. Some soft play centres have a small sectioned-off area for the under fives, but from my own experience and that of my friends, this was often inadequate. I felt that a mobile solution dedicated to the under-fives was the answer. I know when I can easily keep an eye on my own kids I feel much more relaxed, and that's what I wanted to bring to other parents!”
I've always wanted to run my own business, and when I saw the obvious need I jumped at the chance to start HappyJacks. The difference between us and existing softplay facilities is that we're completely mobile, whatever the occasion we can bring the fun to you.
And now with the introduction Pre-School Movement classes and Gymnastics Classes, I have re-ignited my original gymnastics training to!
