outdoor play equipment

  • Put a bit of bounce in your back garden

     

    Since we are getting closer to summer it’s time to open up the back gardens again to the delight of outdoor toys... well, at least to the delight of your children! It’s important to give them some activities to independently partake in at home and nothing quite beats that than the introduction of trampolines into the environment.

     

    Wicken Toys offers a highly varied range of trampolines that could suit small to large families and a variety of different sized back gardens. We have garden trampolines for very small toddlers, large full size heavy duty trampolines, cages/barrier trampolines designed for safety, plus many more.

     

    See if any of these tickle your fancy...

     

    The tp Junior Trampoline is a great way to improve standing, balance and jumping skills through play, suitable for 12+ months and for indoor and outdoor use.

     

     

     

    The JumpFree Trampoline Base Net 12ft and 14ft has netting that wraps around the base of the trampoline and prevents young children and pets from walking under the trampoline while someone else may be jumping up and down. It’s a very safe trampoline for children of most ages to use.

     

     

    The tp 8ft Capital Trampoline is suitable for 6+ years ages. It’s a no nuts-and-bolts designed frame which is easy to set-up with a weatherproof trampoline bed with quality padding. The easy slot-together frame means that taking in apart and piecing it together is a piece of cake.

     

     

    The Super Tramp Wallaby High Performance Trampoline is a heavyweight performance rectangular trampoline. There is no other rectangular trampoline that will match it on performance, quality and value. It’s a good choice for the whole family once again suitability ranging upwards from 6 years of age.

     

     

    Trampolines in the garden provide a great source of fun – even for adults! In summer, when the sun is shining and the warm air makes in perfect for relaxing in the garden, there’s nothing quite like watching the children laugh and play and bounce around.

     

    We discount all the products that we sell but at the moment we are able to offer the tp Sovereign trampolines at unbeatable prices, you will not find any other trampoline to the same specification at the same low prices. The Sovereign trampolines are being sold with a tp bounce surround and a tp ladder in 10ft, 12ft and 14ft sizes.

     

    For more information on our trampolines, outdoor toys and play equipment please contact us and we can help you to find the right toys for your children this summer.

  • Making your garden safe for playtime – a guide for parents

     

    Wicken Toys is one of the biggest distributors of outdoor toys for children. We are all about giving children the perfect playtime activity toys but we also are stern supporters of child safety, particularly outdoors.

     

    We wanted to provide a guide to help parents continue to support their children’s activities outdoors with safety as a top priority. If an environment is not safe to play in, the kids should not be allowed to play in it! It’s as simple as that.

     

    Public playgrounds often are considered the most likely place for accidents to happen or for there to be potential dangers, but if you are creating an outdoor play area for your kids in the comfort and safety of your own back garden then it is the most easy to control environment.

     

     

    Garden fences are hopefully lining the perimeter so young children cannot wander out into the streets or into the roads. Make sure your garden is secure in terms of fencing for both the safety of your children and the security of your home.

     

    If you have bought garden swings then you need to make sure that they are good quality, durable and well manufactured pieces of equipment. DON’T buy second hand outdoor toys as this is the most unreliable of purchases that can easily affect or directly injure your children. Always buy outdoor toy products brand new from a trusted retailer or source. Garden swings are the bread and butter of garden activities and toys after all, so give your kids the very best and safest experiences you can provide.

     

     

    Many parents know that children at different ages require different levels of supervision. Below 5’s often need to be kept at very close watch and even at arm’s length. They can very easily hurt themselves, especially whilst playing, so strict supervision is essential. 5+ is the start of an age where children learn to do things independent of their parents and spend more time playing with other kids. If you are providing play space outdoors for your children and their friends you know you can let them play more freely.

     

    If you own or have purchased climbing frames for the brood, once again only purchase them from trusted sources that come with guarantees. Climbing frames are ideal for groups of children to play on and as long as the climbing frame has been constructed to a professional level then you should be able to rest safe knowing that the children can enjoy themselves without fear of rickety bridges and rusting towers.

     

    Keeping your garden and the outdoor play area safe is all down to common sense really, however, as far as the public playgrounds are concerned if you see unsafe conditions or anything that could be deemed as a danger, report it immediately to the playground operators. Most playgrounds have contact information stencilled on the gates or on sign posts. Adults need to take an active role in the community, especially public areas for children where potential problems can be eliminated before they cause any harm.

     

    Children should be able to have fun on the garden swings and on the climbing frames and enjoy their time outdoors. Have fun but be safe.

  • This summer play parks need to invest in quality outdoor play equipment

     

    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!
