Plum are celebrating 30 years of play and we want to inspire families to get outdoors and stay active this spring! We provide play for every stage of childhood, from baby’s first steps to their first swing and slide, bigger jumps, adventures and beyond.
There is so much more to play than meets the eye, the simple joy is seeing children learn, discover, experiment and grow in confidence through play and create a childhood of great memories.
According to the Play in Balance Campaign commissioned by Persil, almost a third of children in the UK play outdoors for 30 minutes or less a day. Sir Ken Robinson, expert in education, says “Play helps children to learn and experiment, to focus and concentrate, be more self-directed, and to build social confidence. Play also helps children to learn important social values, such as sharing, following rules, taking turns, valuing the choices of others, accepting losing, perseverance, tolerance, open mindedness and empathy.”
Let children be children
We believe outdoor, active play helps to develop these skills and is great for bringing families together to enjoy the great outdoors. Allowing children the freedom of play will create cherished childhood memories for years to come. We want children to have the freedom of play and you the parent the peace of mind.
