Kids Slides

Let’s be honest, slides provide a feeling of never ending fun for both children and grownups, but you don’t need us to remind you of that! Here at Wicken Toys, we supply a wide range of garden slides that are perfect for your back garden, giving you an easily accessible outdoor slide that you can use whenever you fancy. Our kids slide options come in a variety of sizes and styles, meaning you can find the perfect fit for both the space you have at your disposal, and the age of the children that intend to use it.

We all dream of a play haven in our back garden for our kids, right? Well if you’re looking to create a spectacular space for your own children and their friends to never want to leave, then Wicken Toys’ selection of childrens slide products are the perfect choice. You can choose from free standing garden slides that can be an integral part in your full filled set up, flanked by trampolines and playhouses to create the ultimate setting. Or, if you are building your own climbing frame set, you can buy the slide body on its own to fit in with your personal design.

Looking for something bigger and more spectacular? We also offer more creative, larger outdoor slide options for public climbing frames. We have slides that are suitable for platform heights 4ft, 5ft, 6ft and 7ft. They are ideal for thrill seekers and have enclosed sides for added safety.

How do I clean an outdoor slide?

Like anything, outdoor slides can be prone to dirt and grime, and may need a clean from time to time to keep them looking as good as new and to make the space around them look as attractive as possible to ensure that children never get tired of playing there.

To keep your slide at its slippery best and free of dirt, you should first clean it with a mild cleaning detergent and some warm water to scrub off any dirt you can see that has accumulated over time.

Once your slide is looking clean, you should then wax the surface to give it is slippery appeal that makes children want to go, go and go again!

What age can a child use a slide?

Slides for kids are designed to be a way of giving them that exhilarating feeling of speed and freedom, whilst keeping them safe in the process. Of course, the more a child grows, the less fun the smaller slides become, and they will want to move onto something bigger and steeper.

If you are looking to introduce your child to a slide, then we recommend purchasing a small model for your home so you can ensure their safety. They should be able to go up or down a slide with no assistance between 23-26 months depending on the incline.

From here, depending on the size and incline of the slide, and the size of the child, they will be able to experiment with slides that they are comfortable with. Usually with slides, it is up to the discretion of the parents to decide which one is right for their child.

So, if you feel like your child is old enough to use a slide for enjoyment, you can check out our dedicated display park with outdoor slides of all kinds of sizes and gradients to look at in person and see if it’s right for your child.

Are slides safe?

If used correctly and common sense is applied, slides are safe for everyone who uses them. Of course, if a smaller child is left to go down a larger slide alone, they could risk injury upon impact with the ground below. This is why you should always keep an eye on smaller children when in the presence of taller slides.

Users should ensure that they slide down a kids’ slide with their feet getting to the bottom first and sat up whilst doing so. They should never go down head first or lay down. They should also slide down alone and check that the bottom is clear before descending to avoid colliding with others and potentially causing injury to other children too.

By following these measures, slides for kids can continue to be a safe and enjoyable addition to any garden, park or playground.
