The end of the year is in sight, and the festive spirit is in the air, so this is the perfect time to start planning Christmas ideas and gifts to spread the Christmas magic from presents to playtime!
Plum Play recognise that every child is unique in their interests and abilities. So, we have created a handy gift guide to help you find the best outdoor and pretend play toys to surprise your kids with this Christmas to suit every personality and budget, plus some great Christmas gifts for the grown-ups, too!
Super for Junior Jumpers
Junior Jumpers are little ones full of energy and will love a trampoline to bounce away the day and bounce off all that energy through healthy, active play.
There’s a Plum Play Trampoline for everyone, from 18+ months to big kids. A Plum Play trampoline is a present that is sure to put a smile on your child’s face this year.
Jump with the Trolls!
Your toddler can jump into a Trolls world of adventure with Poppy, Branch and Barb on the 4.5ft Trolls Junior Trampoline with Sounds.
The bouncing mat on this trampoline makes six different fun Trolls sounds. As your child bounces and plays, they can jump with the Trolls and activate the sounds they will recognise from the movies. The sound box is battery-powered and easy to install. The trampoline is made from durable materials and has a galvanised steel frame for weather protection.
Ideal for Ambitious Adventurers
For kids that love adventure, we have epic climbing frames that will help nurture their curiosity and bring out the independent explorer in them.
Adventure play will build your child’s confidence as they push their boundaries to new heights and develop new skills. With climbing frames for 18 months + we have something for all families this Christmas.
My first climb!
If you’re looking for gift ideas for preschoolers, little ones will love the My First Wooden Playcentre with its mini rock wall and secret den. It is a great wooden climbing frame to create magic first time moments for you and your toddler, making hours of laughter and play all the way to their brave first climb.
For kids that love to climb!
Older kids can explore the Wooden Lookout Tower Playcentre with Monkey Bars, which has exciting elements for 3+ year-olds. The climbing frame includes a ladder leading up to the tower and a rock wall with hand and foot grips and monkey bars. An 8ft wave slide will take them down, and they can hide in the ball pit below deck.
A perfect gift for kids this Christmas would also be the Plum Tamarin Wooden Climbing Frame which contains all of the features that your children will need to spend hours monkeying around. Two swings for double the fun, a wooden ladder leading to a play deck and a wave slide. This wooden climbing frame is perfect for encouraging agile and active play and will help your children burn off all their energy!

For the Cool Kids
Keep the kids cool this Christmas with the Premium Metal Double Swing and Glider with Mist.
This swing set has a unique water feature that hooks up to your water pipe for outdoor water fun, with two swings for twice the enjoyment and a glider, so even more friends and family can join in the fun.
The frame is larger than standard swing sets. The extra height means a bigger swing, perfect for keeping children active even on the hottest days.
Fab for All the Family
Play isn’t just for the kids! This Christmas, there’s fun for all the family with the Space Zone II Trampoline.
This trampoline is perfect for aspiring gymnasts; with Springsafe technology separating the jumper from the springs whilst maximising jumping, it’s sure to give the best bounce. The trampoline frame is also protected against rust, and the unique Tramp Klamp bracket secures the leg and frame joint, adding extra stability and more opportunities to push the bouncing boundaries!
It also comes in a range of sizes, up to 14ft (with a free trampoline accessory kit when you buy a Space Zone Trampoline and use code: FREEKIT) and supports up to 125kg, so you can hop to it and get a gift ticked off the list that the whole family will love!
Garden Explorers Will Love
Garden explorers enjoy digging and planting. They like to forage and find and aren’t afraid to get their hands dirty, pop on their wellies and go on a garden expedition.
Garden explorers will enjoy play equipment from the Discovery Collection. The collection inspires a love for nature and engages children in STEAM education in the early stages of childhood.
Explore the Discovery Collection here.
Great for Nature-lovers
Nature-lovers are naturally curious about the outdoors. They want to jump in muddy puddles, help plant the veg patch and hunt for minibeasts in the garden. We think kids who love nature will be at home in the Plum Discovery Woodland Treehouse.
The Plum Discovery Woodland Treehouse allows little ones to climb, slide and discover adventure and messy play. Little ones can interact with nature as they discover wildlife hiding in the garden, engage in active play, and keep a lookout from the playcentre as the seasons change.
The Woodland Treehouse includes a built-in potted garden, create and paint easel and bamboo chimes to help develop little ones’ love of nature and add sensory elements to play.
For Alfresco Festive Picnics and Play
Kids can enjoy festive treats alfresco-style with the Surfside Wooden Sand and Picnic Table.
This innovative table provides the perfect place for little ones to sit and enjoy snack time in the fresh air. Then, when snack time is over, the tabletop can be easily removed to reveal the sand and water trays, so your kids can enjoy hours of sand and water play.
Encourage creative play. Will they dig for buried treasure, go on a deep-sea adventure or build sandcastles? This table is so versatile that kids can let their imaginations run wild and immerse themselves in sensory play.
