Children’s Outdoor Play Equipment, Playhouses & Climbing Frames for Domestic or Commercial Use


It’s a fact that children love to play outdoors all year round. Not only that, it’s a great way to ensure that they get all of the health benefits associated with fresh air and exercise, of which there are a lot, a small example being…..

1. Exercise

Exercise is incredibly important for everyone, but especially children, as their bodies have not yet fully developed. Running, riding bikes, having snowball fights and climbing are all activities that will provide so much more than just playing on video games will. They allow proper growth and development of bones, muscles, coordination, imagination, problem solving and social skills.

2. Vitamin D

Vitamin D is provided by the sun and is essential for promoting elevated moods, energy levels, memory and overall health. Even 10 to 15 minutes worth of time spent outdoors, whatever the weather is enough to deliver the daily requirement of vitamin D.

3. Boosted Immune System

It is well known that immune systems are boosted when they come into contact with everyday muck, bacteria, pests etc on a regular basis in the open air. This means fit, young bodies, that can deal with the normal things thrown at them like allergies.
