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.”
