Plum Climbing Frame FAQs

• What size Plum climbing frame should I buy for my child’s age?

Here at Wicken Toys, we pride ourselves on offering products that any child can enjoy, no matter how big or small! We understand that kids grow at a fast rate, so they may soon discover that a Plum climbing frame that once suited their size isn’t as appropriate anymore. If this is the case, then a new climbing frame may be on the cards.

To decide on which size is the best for your child, we recommend carefully reading the dimensions of each of our offerings and comparing them to the size of your child. In most cases, a simple eye test is enough to decide on whether your child is not only too big/small for a climbing frame, but also if they’re ready for the upgrade.

If you feel like your child may experience fear and discomfort on a larger Plum wooden climbing frame, there is no harm looking for a slightly smaller model to ensure they receive as much enjoyment as possible.


• How long do Plum climbing frames last?

Due to the durable nature of the materials used in the construction of a Plum play climbing frame, you can be sure that you’re going to receive many years of use. This makes them some of the most exceptional value-for-money options around. No matter how rigorously they are used by your child or many children, the FSC-certified pressure-treated timber that we use ensures they will stand tall for the long term.

You can benefit from a Plum climbing frame for at least 10 years, ensuring that it can stick with your child for the majority of their childhood. Even if your outdoor space is met with challenging weather conditions during the lifespan of your climbing frame (which, let’s be honest, is inevitable), then your climbing frame will still be able to maintain its durability and strength during the toughest seasons.


• Which is the best Plum wooden climbing frame?

In truth, all of them! At Wicken Toys, we make sure that we offer a Plum climbing frame that is suitable for any child. Not only through their size, but also with a range of features available to suit any preference. For example, would your child prefer a well-rounded solution that includes many additional extras? If so, be sure to check out a Plum climbing frame with slide from our website or display site today!

If you want something a little more simplistic that takes up a smaller area, then a standard Plum climbing frame may be all you need. Regardless of what you think is best for your child, we have all of the solutions to increase the likelihood of finding your ideal frame.


• Are Plum wooden climbing frames safe for toddlers?

The majority of Plum climbing frames are suitable for children starting from 3 years old and up, meaning that toddlers at least 36 months old should be able to play on the equipment safely. Additionally, there are specially designed Plum play centres for toddlers that make an ideal first climbing frame for children aged between 12–18 months.

Most Plum climbing frame play centres have a max load of 40–50kg for each component, which allows toddlers to grow into play equipment for slightly older and bigger children. Some of the popular models that are safe for young children 3+ years old include:

  • Plum Premium Wooden Lookout Tower (also with swings/monkey ladder)
  • Plum Climbing Pyramid Wooden Play Centre
  • Plum Climbing Cube Wooden Play Centre (also with swings)
  • Plum Discovery Woodland Treehouse

When they get older, your child might be more interested in a larger and more exciting playset, like the expansive Giant Baboon, Woolly Monkey, Warthog, Bison, or Wildebeest models.

You can also find Plum climbing frame accessories that are suitable for toddlers, such as a high-back baby swing or a nest swing for slightly bigger kids.


• Where should I put my Plum climbing frame?

Before choosing a Plum climbing frame, you should have already measured your available outdoor space. A suitable place for a Plum outdoor climbing frame should be a clear space with flat ground that isn’t too hard, such as grass or bark chips.

There also needs to be 2 metres of clearance around the structure in all directions. This means there shouldn’t be any other play equipment, trees, plants, washing lines etc within this zone. If you choose equipment that needs to be anchored into the ground, you may have to pour some concrete to follow the instructions for installing the ground anchors.

Once you’ve selected the area you plan to install the frame and taken careful measurements, you can browse the types of climbing frames you’re interested in on the Wicken Toys website. Keep your measurements to hand so you can compare them to the product information while you’re narrowing down your chosen models. 

Remember that you also need to keep the age and size of your children in mind when selecting a Plum climbing frame that’s suitable for their age and weight range. Be sure to check the product details thoroughly before placing your order.


• How can I maintain my Plum wooden climbing frame?

As long as you look after your Plum play centre, it should last for a very long time. The wood has already been pressure-treated to prevent rot and infestations, but you should still clean your Plum climbing frame any time you notice it getting a bit dirty.

To do this, wait until it’s completely dry, then use a soft brush to remove dirt from the structure. If metal and plastic parts need cleaning, such as swings and slides, use a damp cloth and a mix of soap and warm water to wipe them down. Try to avoid using harsh cleaning chemicals.

At least once a year, usually in the autumn after a summer play season and before the winter sets in, you should remove any loose parts and then apply a wood treatment. This should be a water-based wood stain that’s safe for use on children’s outdoor play equipment.

Don’t worry if you start to notice small cracks and splits appearing in the timber. This is normal, due to the wood shrinking and expanding in response to temperature and weather changes. In most cases, it has no effect on the strength of the wood or the overall integrity of the climbing frame.
