  • Playing house - opening the doors to playhouses this spring

     

    As the weather improves and we see more sunny days ahead (the recent snowfall notwithstanding!) it’s a good opportunity to start thinking playhouses for the kids. At Wicken Toys we have some ideas about the best playhouses currently available and what we think will give your children the most fun during spring time.

     

    Playing at home for kids can be turned into a much more exciting experience. Playhouses are a greta way to encourage imaginative play for pre-schoolers. They can cater to children playing by themselves and with their siblings or friends.

     

    The key attraction for children is that they can role play and the educational merits of playhouses are that children (knowingly or unknowingly) can practice social skills while enjoying their playtime. Think about it – playhouses are basically platforms for children to pretend to be their parents by “owning” and “living” in their own house. They adopt etiquette very quickly.

     

    With a playhouse kids can play inside or outside in them. They are designed as outdoor toys but work just as well inside the house on those cold or rainy days. With spring weather and signs of summer spreading across the UK there has never been a better time to encourage children to play outdoors!

     

    Playhouses come in different shapes and sizes that can suit individual gardens and homes respectively according to their specifications.

     

    The Forest Wooden Cabin Playhouse is a compact lodge with window frames and fabric door perfect for children aged between 1-10 years.

     

     

    Go from small cabin house to fortress castle and tower set (which boys tend to go crazier for!) Children will instinctively recognise that the Castle can be a fairy palace, a Wild West fort, or a stage for medieval chivalry and pageantry.   Then they can run accross the bridge into the tower and act out some other imaginary tale.

     

     

    Or for something a little more scaled back and not quite so epic, you can find the All Out Play Jungle Hut more appealing. It has a wooden floor as its base and looks great in gardens.

     

     

    Choose from a standard playhouse or a hybrid playhouse / Climbing frame by All Out Play. All Out Play playhouses look great in any garden, solidly built and strikingly unusual.

     

    Playhouses blend well into any environment. Each design includes an enclosed space that is great in all sorts of weather, but also allows your children to play securely in their own private fantasy world.

  • Who we work with at Wicken to educate children at playtime Part 2

    In our previous blog we started to explore the manufacturers that we collaborate with in order to provide the finest quality outdoor toys for children that give them plenty of active play whilst assisting them with their learning and development.

     

    We looked at Creative Playthings Special Pine and the Playtime Series which leaves us with the remaining toy manufacturers that we work with in order to produce the best outdoor toys1

     

    Continuing the rundown...

     

    TP TOYS

     

    Tp toys use both square cut and round wood.  Their products have many different accessories that will keep children busy for hours.

     

    Tp's Toys design top of the range outdoor toys from climbing frames to wheeled toys. These products teach children about balance and co-ordination, which are essential abilities that need to be absorbed and practiced from a young age.

     

    ALL OUT PLAY

     

    All Out Play produce inspirational play equipment that encourages both creative and physical play.  All Out Play is a family run business manufacturing their own designs here in the UK.  They have put a range together that combines a traditional playhouse with play features found on more traditional playsets. The result is fun castles, forts towers, turrets, galleons and more.

     

    The focus is heavily on creative play. Children learn how to use their imaginations to maximum effect and in so doing discover a lot about what they want to be or what they like to do.

     

    PLUM PRODUCTS

     

    Plum products are a family run business and have been trading for over 21 years.  They have a range of play centres that are designed to suit different age ranges, levels of activity and sizes of garden.  You’ll find that Plum Products combine all of the educational merits of those mentioned above.

     

    And that’s the end of our rundown on our manufacturers and how they help to educate children of all ages.

     

    What we hope you will find with our outdoor toys is the perfect combination of safety, quality design, economical price and educational merit. Not all learning is done in the classroom. The most important learning is out in the world when children play amongst each other.
