Opinions clash at this time every year – with the kids finishing school, it means a summer of fun for families the country over...or several weeks of struggling to find something to keep your children occupied and entertained! Well you need look no further as we’re bound to have something ideal here at Wicken...
From climbing frames and play houses to swings, slides and swimming pools we’ve got all the play equipment you’ll need to entertain and enthral kids of all ages. The outdoors is a wonderful place and it’d be a terrible shame to let any good weather we may have slip by unnoticed without taking advantage of the sun while it’s there!
We firmly believe that outdoor play is an unmatched social learning tool, teaching children about balance, coordination, teamwork and cooperation as well as encouraging the development of imagination and independent thought. Just think of all the adventures your kids could be having with the Plum Wildebeest Play Centre and its walkways, turrets, slides, swings, sandpits and lunch counter. Setting your children down in front of the TV might be an appealing option this summer, but nothing beats the inspiration and exercise offered by a fresh-air climbing frame set such as this.
Alternatively check out the fantastic range of above ground pools we stock – from 8ft to 18ft there’s a pool for every size of garden (and swimmer!). Swimming is a form of exercise that uses an awful lot more muscles than you might think, and is a great way of cooling off if the sun gets a little warm. Remember to stock up on sun tan lotion! Oh, and don’t let the kids think they’re the only ones who’ll be using it – there’s plenty of room for Mum and Dad to take a dip too! Having a pool is also an interesting way to teach your children more about safety, responsibility and following rules – try letting them make their own ‘No Diving’ signs for another fun activity.
If you’re at all in doubt or undecided, head down to our outdoor display – after all, it’s the biggest outdoor collection of swings, climbing frames, trampolines and generally fun play equipment in the country. It makes sense to try before you buy! An image and a description will only tell you so much, of course, and a trip to Wicken Toys for a trial session will surely bring a smile to the faces of your little ones.
We hope you can make the most of the summer while it lasts!
