Art Frame

Whether for learning through play or for a more structured approach, it is hard to understate how important confident mark making is to a child’s education. Unlike many other outdoor drawing boards, our Art Frame is freestanding and can be easily moved around to wherever it is most needed. It is equally useful as a focal point for outdoor lessons or out in the playground as a fun break time activity. As it is double-sided (with a chalkboard on one side and whiteboard on the other) two or more children can use it at the same time.

Technical Information

Product dimensions: 660mm (W) x 1245mm (H) x 1152mm (L) Chalkboard and Whiteboard sizes: 1200mm (W) x 800mm (H) Recommended minimum use zone: 2660mm (W) x 3245mm (H)  

Little Brave’s Tipi

Our Tipi makes the perfect den for all your little brave’s. Having been designed primarily for the key stage 1 age group it is just the right size for a mini pow wow.

The Tipi is freestanding for positioning on a flat and level surface, it does not need to be dug into the ground. Whether you are installing it yourself or having us do it for you, it comes ‘flat packed’ and is very quick and easy to assemble.

Pirate King’s Galleon Play Boat

When designing the Pirate King’s Galleon we wanted a play boat that would offer a balanced combination of physical and imaginative play as well as provide an area for social development and learning. The equipment has many ways to entertain, challenge and educate.

The ship’s ‘bridge’ consists of a 1m high platform partially covered by a simple timber roof and features a stainless steel slide, fire pole, ship’s wheel, ladder and scramble net. A small step down leads to a lower 600mm high single platform, from here you can scramble across the ship’s ‘rigging’ and onto another low platform or negotiate the double ropes to walk the plank or simply take a break on the crew’s bench. Atop the 3.6m mast is the classic skull and cross-bones pirate flag warning anyone that comes close to keep a close watch on their gold! At either side of the front platform is a scramble net, perfect for helping you board a rival vessel and seize their treasure! At the front of the boat is the crew quarters with a bench and 4 dome-shaped porthole windows so you can keep an eye out for passing mermaids even when below deck.

Sand & Water Play Scales

Both incredible fun and a valuable learning tool, our Scales are a great choice for any sand and water play area. Children will not realise just how much they are learning as they move water from one bucket to the other or weigh out sand in equal measures. They are a great way to move science and maths lessons out of the formal classroom.

The Scales can be supplied fitted to a timber post or they can be fixed to an existing structure (the post of a shelter for example) in order to minimise costs and take up less space in your playground.

The buckets are in a flexible, robust material and are supported on chains of equal length.

Water Play Station

Our Water Play Station combines the majority of the individual pieces of our water play range into a single multi-use water play unit. It includes our Water Wall with mirror; Water Table & Pump; River Run and our Water Wheel & Chute. This is a great way to maximise play and learning value from water play in your outdoor space.

The Water Play Station is a closed system with a water storage tank so there is no need for a mains water supply.

If you have more space then why not expand your sand and water play with our Play Scales and covered Sand Pit.

Water Play Station Features

Water Wall
A timber wall with numerous wooden channels to provide different routes for water to flow down depending on the chosen start point and the positioning of the rocking junction channel. Children enjoy discovering the fastest and slowest routes and watching the water flow down the wooden channels and plastic tubing

Mirror
Fitted to the reverse of the Water Wall is a mirror that provides another layer of sensory interaction.

Water Table & Pump
The heart of the Water Play Unit is the pump and table. The hand cracked pump is fed from (and drains back into) a water tank under the table.
The pump is used to fill a half barrel water container via an overhanging pipe.

River Run
The River Run is made from channels in a safe and durable thermoplastic sheet (HDPE) mounted at 40 degrees, to create a system of interconnecting ‘rivers’, with ‘lock gate’ switches to be opened or closed to direct the flow of water from the top into a timber gutter that collects the water at the bottom of the run.

Water Chute & Wheel
A timber water chute with an integrated safe and durable thermoplastic (HDPE) water wheel spinner flows into the container on the ground.

Boat

The Boat with a rubber mat deck is an imaginative play and seating system measuring some 2.25m long and 1m wide with seating for a small group or as a play boat securely anchored to the playground. Ideal for play or group work.

This can be supplied for £545.00 + VAT + Delivery

Sand Pit And Sand Table

The Sand Pit / Stage has a non-slip GrasseDeck™ sectional lid that easily lifts off in lightweight sections to provide seats.

Hard wearing and durable this lid will support people stepping onto it whilst also preventing spoiling of the sand by debris and animal activity. In addition, the floor has a substantial polycarbonate base which prevents weed growth and separates the sand from the underlying ground.

The walls hold the sand of 200mm. Typical Sand Pit sizes are Mini 1.05×1.0m or Large at 2.1×1.0m (other sizes, as required, are available). We usually find that the Mini requires 9 bags and the Large 25 bags of sand.

The Sand Table benefits from a lightweight lid made from 16mm polycarbonate with a secure ply top to prevent spoiling of the sand by debris and animal activity. In addition, the floor is a substantial marine ply base. The sides hold the sand which averages 100mm.

Typical Sand Table sizes are Mini 1.05×1.0m or Large at 2.1×1.0m (other sizes, as required, are available)
We supply 8 bags of play sand as a starter pack.
