As we enter November, many of you will be contemplating what presents to get the kids, perhaps a climbing frame is the answer.
Every Christmas brings with it new gadgets, gizmos and consoles. All of these are extremely appealing to kids, but it means they will be stuck inside glued to a screen. Maybe this year it’s time for a change.
A climbing frame will help keep your kids happy and healthy year after year. Outside space is a place where children can let their imaginations run wild and get fit in the process. You may not know this, but letting your kids loose on a climbing frame encourages one or more of the four styles of play: imaginative play, social play, constructive play and physical play. Each of these styles involves different ways of playing and have their own unique benefits for your child’s development.
Playing outside is extremely beneficial to your children, compare that with your child glued to technology which can have a detrimental effect on your child’s development. According to the Huffington Post ‘’The impact of rapidly advancing technology on the developing child has seen an increase of physical, psychological and behaviour disorders that the health and education systems are just beginning to detect, much less understand.’’
The primary health benefit associated with a climbing frame is that your children will get their 60 minutes recommended exercise a day. The more exercise they get, the better they’ll sleep at night, meaning you’ll get quieter nights! Your children will be having so much fun playing that they won’t realise that they’ll actually be exercising whilst they play.
Whilst they are playing there is always the concern from parents whether or not a climbing frame is safe to play on. All of our play equipment meets the European standard EN71 and are CE rated. All have been rigorously tested to ensure they meet the required standards – it’s better to be safe than sorry!
You may also ask yourself if a climbing frame is a worthwhile investment. The truth is…yes, it is! Every piece of timber in our climbing frames arrives at your door having been pressure treated. This method forces treatment into the timber. We are so confident about its ability to resist rot and insect infestation that we guarantee you don’t need to retreat for up to ten years.
