Creative Playthings

Leading brand Creative Playthings has over 70 years of experience in the outdoor play equipment industry. Since forming in the USA in the 1940s, Creative Playthings has become one of the biggest residential climbing frame manufacturers not just in America, but internationally, too!  With a legacy like that, you can be sure they know what they’re doing.

If you’re looking for high-quality wooden play equipment for your children, you can’t go wrong with an outdoor playcentre from Creative Playthings. Despite their long history, the products that they manufacture are innovative, keeping up with the needs of families throughout changing times. One of their durable climbing frames can last for decades.


Customisable Outdoor Climbing Frames

One of the best parts about Creative Playthings wooden climbing frames is that you can choose between complete sets or modular climbing frames. This means that you can save time by ordering a fixed design, or cherry-pick your child’s favourite features to build an outdoor climbing frame with all the exciting elements they could ever want to play with.

This is especially beneficial for young families with growing children. The last thing you want is to invest a lot of money into a climbing frame that they’ll grow out of in a few short years – but with modular Creative Playthings playcentres, you can add and remove parts whenever you like to update the system in line with your child’s needs as they get older.

There are three main designs, each of which has two different styles to choose from. Firstly, the Creative Playthings tower gyms (Williamsburg and Lexington) is the most adaptable. Secondly, the Creative Playthings clubhouse gyms (Ridgefield and Yorktown) feature an enclosed clubhouse with a roof and balcony porch. Last but not least, the Creative Playthings climber gyms (Manchester and Norfolk) are constructed in an A-frame design with room for multiple features on the bottom level.

Quality Wooden Climbing Frames

As you can see from each product picture, every Creative Playthings is made from sturdy yellow wood. This isn’t just any timber – it’s specially treated Grade 1 Southern Yellow Pine. Grown in managed forests, sanded and kiln-dried, then beautifully finished with a light brown stain, the manufacturing process ensures consistently high quality.

Since Southern Yellow Pine has a high density, it’s the best structural timber to use for wooden climbing frames, which need a strong load-bearing capacity and holding power. These premium Creative Playthings wooden playsets are exceptionally robust as well as being visually stunning, providing a lovely golden colour and grain pattern.

Every wooden climbing frame is backed by the Creative Playthings Limited Lifetime Warranty, so you can be confident in your purchase. Order your ideal outdoor wooden climbing frame from the Wicken Toys website today and make your kids’ dreams come true.
