2017 Winner of the Toy and Hobby Retailer Awards – Preschool Product of the Year!

We are honoured to have won the Preschool Product of the Year Award for our Wooden Teepee Hideaway range!

Plum Play Australia is a specialist in active play, with quality, innovation, safety and fun at the heart of the Plum brand.

A testament to the company’s success in inspiring children to flourish and grow is the upcoming celebration of its 30th birthday this year.

Since it was founded in 1988, Plum Play Australia has grown into a global business, supplying over 40 countries with toys for children aged from 18 months to 18 years.

Plum Play Australia’s product portfolio has accumulated a host of international awards that spans its core range of trampolines, climbing frames, playhouses, swing sets, scooters, picnic tables, sensory play and indoor role play.

As a company, Plum recognises that in this digital age, it’s more important than ever to motivate children to play outdoors and engage with nature in the safety of their own backyard.

The Wooden Teepee Hideaway range allows children to jump, swing, slide, hide and play while giving presence to an imaginary world, and in so doing, creating cherished childhood memories to last a lifetime.

This beautiful playhouse in the shape of a teepee can form the centre of adventure in a garden for a child, offering an ideal space for creative play, picnics and storytelling.

The Wooden Teepee Hideaways are crafted from sustainably sourced, pre-treated FSC wood that will last for years to come and needs no sanding or coating.

The Teepees are available in two sizes: the 2.3m tall Great Teepee, ideal for small gardens, and the 3.3m Grand Teepee for medium to large gardens.

They can be kept natural or considered to be a blank canvas that will inspire creative customisation with paint and stencils to create a unique garden clubhouse.

“One of the most wonderful characteristics of our Wooden Teepee Hideaway is that it lends itself to boys and girls with a variety of interests and personalities,” Jonathan Schaffer, Plum Play Australia founder, told Toy & Hobby Retailer.

“We’ve received feedback from many of our customers with children who have ideas to customise and personalise their very own teepee,” he says.

“From a dinosaur sanctuary, to a fairy garden palace, to a nautical beach shack, to wild west themes and beyond… There is truly no limit to the imagination. It’s also a fantastic bonding experience for family and friends.

“Our new product development team always has their finger on the pulse, setting trends as well as being at the forefront of them. As the first Wooden Teepee to hit the Australian market, we are proud of the impact we have been able to create in the toy industry.”

Teepee Styling with @alittleatlarge – Featuring our Wooden Teepee Hideaway!

When we came across the @alittleatlarge Instagram account we couldn’t be more inspired by wonderlust and fairydust!

Writer and creative photographer for A Little At Large, Narelle and her daughter Tiah have crafted a profile full of cherished childhood memories.

We loved the beautiful beach vibes and couldn’t resist reaching out to see how they would style their very own Wooden Teepee Hideaway!

This blog entry below is a repost, originally written by Narelle at A Little At Large – http://bit.ly/LittleLoves 

JOY Teepee Hideaway

One of the things I love most about having a 5-year-old is finding things to do that ignites both our imaginations, but also creates an opportunity for us to work together to make the kind of memories we will both cherish.

With this in mind, we recently partnered with Plum Play Australia to create and curate our very own Wooden Teepee Hideway.

I have to admit to not being the handiest of handywomen, and my husband had never excelled in the “build it yourself” stakes either. So I posted the task on airtasker.com and within half an hour I had Andrew, my trusty handyman on route.

Andrew made pretty short work of putting it all together, while Tiah supervised.

With the building done and the excitement rising, we hit Bunnings to pick out some paint. Tiah insisted she wanted it to look just like our big house, so Cabot’s Beach House Grey was the winner, a water-soluble wood stain that would be easy to apply and just as easy to clean up little paint dipped fingers.

To the garden shop we ventured, where we picked out some marguerite daisies in bloom and two Chinese star jasmine that we thought would look pretty amazing growing over to form a natural floral arbour in time. A quick stop to Domayne to pick up some joy (you will spy the sign later), and also to Spotlight, for some tulle and fancy lace ribbon.

Completing the painting was the fun part. Tiah worked on the bottom and I worked on the top simultaneously, giggling as we went when paint splashed down on her nose from my drips and my feet from hers. Two coats and we were done. We left it for a few hours to dry and got our accessories ready for the part we both love the most – the styling.

With plants in place and a few choice bits from inside the house (including the gorgeous Sheridan fluffy Icelandic sheep pillow and a sustainable reindeer hide), we were almost ready for the exciting final touches.

A swag of tulle placed over the door (the teepee does come with a roll down awning that affixes with Velcro, we just embellished it a little), some battery operated festoon lights that we got for a song and the final piece – JOY- the battery operated light from Domayne’s Christmas collection that fitted snugly above the door.

Tiah was glowing, her teepee was more beautiful than we ever imagined and proud as punch, she immediately rounded up the neighbours, including Grace, the friendly dog from next door to join in the housewarming. We did not expect there to be jumping- well maybe just from Tiah – but when Grace joined in the festivities, I could not help but snap a moment I know we will smile about well into the future.

As a play space, the teepee is ideal. We have a small yard and its compact footprint fits perfectly. As for the materials themselves, we were thrilled with the excellent quality. Even our handyman Andrew commented, saying how well cut the pieces of timber were, no rough edges and everything fitted together so snuggly that he said it should last a lifetime. Thumbs up Andrew.

We created some beautiful memories building and styling our teepee, but the ones I am most looking forward to are the ones still to come. I know this will be a place where carefree summers will be savoured, where tea parties will be hosted and treats from the pantry smuggled. There will be secrets shared, giggles giggled and good times had with friends. And not forgetting Grace, who pops in pretty regularly for a snuggle and random joyful jumps.

Introducing… The Plum In-Ground Trampoline!

 

inground_4

 

Earlier this week, Plum Play launched one of their brand new products to the Australian market… The in-ground trampoline!

 

The in-ground trampoline has been specifically engineered for sinking into the ground, meaning that there is no need for an enclosure. The unobtrusive design blends seamlessly into the garden, allowing for limitless play!

 

With a galvanised steel frame, Plum’s In-Ground Trampoline promises extra protection from rust and degradation. The trampoline frame uses super thick, 2mm gauge steel to deal with the added moisture in the ground, giving strength and longevity.

 

Each trampoline leg is held in place with Plum’s patented Tramp Klamp brackets. The Tramp Klamps fit over the leg and frame joint, reinforcing the steel frame structure for even greater stability and protection from the elements. Shorter length legs help the trampoline sit flush into the ground and reduce the size of the hole to be dug.

 

Plum’s In-Ground trampoline is fitted with a vented jumping mat and safety pad, specifically engineered to reduce airflow through the trampoline and optimise bounce performance. It’s the perfect trampoline for junior gymnasts and aspiring acrobats.

 

Worried about dirt? Each trampoline is fitted with a retaining wall to provide a barrier around the trampoline, preventing soil and dirt from falling underneath to preserve the jumping space.

 

So, why should I purchase an in-ground trampoline?

 

In-ground trampolines offer a number of benefits including:

 

  • Overall safety – As the in-ground trampoline sits flush with the ground, the height off the ground when bouncing is significantly reduced. This means that off-track bouncers simply jump onto soft grass.

 

  • Garden design – One of the main reasons our customers love in-ground trampolines is because it blends seamlessly into any garden. It makes gardening and cutting the lawn a breeze, as there is no need to move the trampoline to get underneath. All Plum In-ground Trampolines come supplied with a green cover, meaning that you can prolong the life of your brand new purchase.

 

  • Encourages creative outdoor play – In-ground trampolines allow for children to add a whole new dimension to their outdoor games. They can use their creativity to form new outdoor games that incorporate the bouncy surface.

 

  • Great for first time bouncers – The Plum In-ground Trampoline offers free, open play, meaning that little ones can easily bounce. With an in ground trampoline, there is no need for little ones to climb up onto the trampoline and through a net to jump.

 

The Plum In-ground Trampoline is available in 8ft, 10ft & 12ft.

The Ultimate Easter Egg Hunt!

The Ultimate Egg Hunt

What better way to celebrate Easter Sunday than with a traditional Easter egg hunt?

Plum Easter Egg Hunt

The Great Outdoors

Weather permitting, there’s nothing like an outdoor egg hunt!

A garden or outdoor space will provide plenty of hiding places for your loot. Behind plant pots, buried in flower beds or stashed underneath garden furniture  are all perfect places to obscure the eggs.

Keep your audience in mind when looking for places to hide the prize. Up a tree might be just the right height for you but your little ones may struggle (unless you want to hide some eggs for yourselves of course, which we also strongly encourage!).

If you have any, outdoor play equipment also provides some handy nooks and crannies to hide chocolate!

Easter Egg Hunt 4

Be Clued Up

Little ones will love to hunt high and low for their eggs, so set them free!

Keep the suspense built for older children by leaving a trail of clues around the garden.

For the ultimate explorers, creating a map of the garden with a trail will help them as they navigate their way to the chocolatey treasure. Don’t forget the x to mark the spot!

Egg Hunt 3

Keep it Fair

Split children into teams or consider colour coding your eggs to make sure the littlest ones still have the fairest chance.

Egg Hunt 2

 

Happy Hunting!
