Children love being active and having Fun! here are 5 reasons why it’s important to get children outside!
- Stronger bones: Today’s children don’t get enough sun and are at a risk at becoming VitaminD deficient which can causing health risks.
- Trimmer and more healthier children a longer lifespan and healthier adult life. Doctors estimate that obese children lose three to five years from their life expectancy.
- Longer attention spans: Children who stare at TV and video games all day have less patience and shorter attention spans.
- Better at making friends: Children playing together outdoors relate directly with one another, create games together and improve their “people” skills.

Pathfinder Climbing Frame
Pathfinder Climbing Frame has been around for several seasons, which shows how popular it has been in a market where climbing frame designes are normally changed annually or bi-annually! A great sturdy design and attractive colour scheme make this wooden play system a great buy.
The Pathfinder Climbing Frame is manufactured from cedar wood which is treated with a water based, factory applied redwood colour stain. The wood is pre-cut and pre-drilled so when it is delivered to your door by our helpful delivery drivers it is ready-to-build. The pack consists of two boxes which contain all wood, hardware and accessories.
The swing beam has two belt swings and a 2-child back-to-back glider, although this can also be used by one child if required.

We thought to help future customers build there climbing frame we would give them the below pointers!
1) Sort wood
2) label with chalk or something that is easy to see but washes off.
3) Sort all hardware into individual steps and label
Right now you are ready for building, it took 2-3 people about 8hrs, the wood is quite fragile it is pre treated though which is great. This set is for smaller children not big ones I have 2 nephews aged 3 and 8 and the recommendation is 60kg per swing seat so its suits them just fine. It looks good in the garden and my children are happy also.

Columbia Climbing Frame
The Columbia Climbing Frame is a beautiful wooden playset, designed to be built at home. The set comes flat packed (ikea style) in two boxes including all wood, hardware and accessories (swing, slide, 2-child glider).
The Cloumbia Climbing Frame is manufactured from Cedar wood and is pre-stained before leaving the factory. Cedar is naturally resistant to rot and insect infestation so unlike Pine it does not need pressure treating with chemicals to ensure it lasts when outside. The wooden parts also come labelled (all main parts) and pre-drilled and cut where necessary to ensure home-build is as easy as possible. All you’ll need is some power tools and a few hours to spare!
The Cloumbia Climbing Frame features some great accessories including an 8ft (2.4m) wave slide, 2 belt style swing seats and a 2-child back-to-back glider, although one child can use this on their own if desired. There’s also a flat step ladder and a rockwall on the opposite side of the fort structure to the picnic table. The picnic table can seat four children comfortably.
The set features a large green tarp roof with a matching picnic table roof. The slide, swings and metal brackets are all matching green. The slide bed is yellow, as are the grab handles at the top of the rockwall ladder.
