Inspire a love of nature, engage children in STEM education and discover the advantages of early play!
The research is quite clear that the best practice in early childhood education is to break away from structured activities and allow for more play and investigation. This kind of learning early in life builds skills and interests that serve children throughout their school years and into adulthood.
In 2017, Plum® introduced the award winning nature play collection designed to get kids out into the garden, experimenting with STEM activities. The Plum Discovery® collection combines learning and play all year round whilst inspiring natures little ambassadors to get messy in the garden with outdoor role play. Children can interact with nature as they discover wildlife and engage in sensory and active play as the seasons change. Little green fingers can cut and trim the buds and shrubs to create their very own mini eco centre. All Discovery® toys have been made from FSC® sustainably sourced wood, include a bamboo wind chime, easy clean painting screen and mini growing station for beginner gardeners.
“The collection brings families, friends and communities together.
The idea is to use non-linear unstructured play features to stimulate
imaginative engagement. Our new design is feature rich and gives 360°
play. We have continued the rustic, earthy look & feel, discovery products
feel like a part of the garden, like they are were grown in the woodland.”
