For every child there is nothing that really beats exploring the outdoor environments of a play park with their friends. At that age everything is a new discovery and imagination is king on the playgrounds. But every play park needs an outdoor play equipment supplier in order to kit it out with safe, durable and fun toys. This is where we at Wicken Toys step in.
In our experience, play parks should have plenty for kids to play with and in this blog we create the ideal environment with everything you could possibly need to make a play park a success with children. The essential elements that make up an outdoor play area are garden swings and slides. Without these two toy sets, it’s not a park! Or at least, it’s certainly not a traditional one!
Let’s swing into action shall we? Swings are the heart and soul of a play park, and for us the swings from Plum products are the safest bet to make that heart beat.
The Plum Uakari swing set offers 2 compact swing positions with the addition of two very popular climbing apparatus; a large climbing net and tall rock wall. It’s a wooden swing set with soft rope for climbing. It’s a multi-purpose, multi-use garden swing set ideal for play park use. Moreover, it’s safe!
Let’s not slide around the issue too much! Slides are quite simply the bees knees when it comes to play parks. Kids love them. So you need to make sure you have one that is smooth and safe. For us, this Green Spiral Slide is ideal for children aged 3-12 that consists of 8 gliding parts mounted around a central pole.
Nobody likes a social climber, unless they are under the age of 12! CP Gable Fan and Dormer and climbing frame is a play park ready outdoor toy with roof, climbing apparatus and a tower. It’s big, bold and brilliant!
What’s a play park without a sandpit too? The tp Sherwood Sandpit is a large play area suitable for 2 or more children to get messy and have a muck around in. It’s simple and safe.
Alternatively, you could just get an all-in-one beast of a climbing frame that has a bit of everything.
There’s the Spider Monkey from Plum products that is a compact climbing frame with climbing net, slide and optional swings.
One of our favourites is the Playtime Lincoln wooden climbing frame with free accessories including a two child back to back glider, rock wall, cargo climber, lunch counter, clubhouse window panal and access ladder. It’s the king of play park climbing frames, that’s for certain!
