A happy child smiles while sitting on the end of a slide that is part of play equipment.Outdoor playtime is important for children, but care needs to be taken when choosing what equipment to buy. You need to consider the age of your children, the types of equipment that they are likely to benefit from, and take a few other things into consideration too.

This planning stage is very important, so before you place an order with us, factor in the following when you're gathering information.

Assessing Your Play Area Needs

As you begin researching play equipment, factor in the following info.

The size of your play area

How big is your play area? Use measuring equipment to find out how much space you have. This will help you decide the size and quantity of equipment to buy.

Your budget

We have play equipment to suit all budgetary needs, so consider what you can afford. If you run any kind of organized play facility, you might be able to source funding if extra money is needed for your play area, so research local sources.

Your existing equipment

Will you be replacing any of your older equipment? If so, will you be replacing it with something new or will you be looking for something similar? We have play equipment of all types at Kids Gotta Play, so consider what you're looking to replace and browse our selection to find what you need.

Assessing The Needs Of Your Children

The play equipment you choose must be suitable for the needs of the children using it. Therefore, consider the following.

The age of your children

What will be the youngest and oldest age of the children using your play area? Consider this and then browse the equipment that is right for your intended age range. Some equipment is age-specific, while other pieces of play equipment can be used for a wide range of ages, so factor this into the equation when buying.

Special needs and disabilities

Some equipment types are more suitable than others when considering the special needs of the children in your care. Research the pieces of play equipment that will support the needs of your children and get in touch with us if you would like support in choosing the right equipment.

Fitness and exercise needs

Choose play equipment that will help your children develop different physical abilities. From climbing nets to trampolines, you will find what you need at our store for all of your children's fitness needs.
