The weather is getting cooler, 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 this year.
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 – we have gifts for kids to suit every personality and budget, plus some gifts for the grown-ups, too!
Super for Junior Jumpers
Junior Jumpers are little ones full of energy, who 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.
Sounds of the ocean!
Your toddler child’s present can inspire a world of ocean play possibilities as they deep dive into a sea soundscape on the 4.5ft Ocean Sounds trampoline.
The bouncing mat on this trampoline makes four different sounds inspired by the ocean. As your child bounces and plays, they will learn to associate the sounds with the friendly ocean animals printed on the mat and pad. 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.
Climbing for cool kids!
Older kids can explore the Climbing Cube, which has exciting elements for 3+ year-olds. The climbing frame includes steps leading up to the tower, a cargo net, and double-length monkey bars. An 8ft wave slide will take them back down, and they can hide in a secret camouflage fabric den below.

Fun with Friends
More friends, more fun! Playing with friends is a great way to spark imagination and enjoy spending time with friends.
The perfect kids climbing frame for when friends want to come over, the Climbing Pyramid is a best-selling playcentre for bold adventurers. It’s packed with play from scaling rock walls, scrambling down cargo nets and hiding out.
The Climbing Pyramid is made of premium FSC®-certified, sustainably sourced wood that lasts for years of adventurous outdoor play. The swing arm attachment features two swings for double the fun. Both swings are height adjustable and have durable seats with soft feel ropes.
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 a gift from the Plum Discovery Collection. The collection inspires a love for nature and engages children in STEAM education in the early stages of childhood.

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 our Discovery Nature Play Hideaway.
The Plum Discovery Nature Play Hideaway is a cleverly designed play space that features bamboo wind chimes, a swinging letterbox, and even a built-in planter pot, perfect for encouraging kids to explore and get creative outside.
There are no rules in this den; children can create mud pies and write their recipes on the easy-clean, acrylic painting screen.
The unique shape and construction of the Plum Discovery Nature Play Hideaway brings 360° play and the love of nature to any garden landscape.
Perfect for Pretend Play
Pretend play ignites imagination and encourages children to be creative and act out different scenarios, from driving a taco truck to cooking up a storm in the play kitchen for friends. We have some feature packed indoor role play kitchens that will bring out the inner chef in your little one.
Your kids can unleash their inner chef with the Bakehouse Traditional Wooden Kitchen with Fridge.
The realistic kitchen setup will both complement and brighten up your home with its oxford blue exterior, brass accents and imitation marbled backsplash.
Inspire lots of cooking fun with the light-up and sound hobs, accompanied by a light-up extractor fan and microwave oven. The modular fridge with pretend ice dispenser has lots of storage room for all your ingredients! Spark creativity further with the stainless-steel kitchen utensils, plastic cups with ice cubes and Belfast sink.
Fab for All the Family
Play isn’t just for the kids! This Christmas, there’s fun for all the family with the WEB Trampoline.
This trampoline has an innovative springless design (Woven Elastic Bounce), with original elastic webbing providing an alternative option to spring-based trampolines. Its jumping mat is also 20% larger than traditional circular trampolines with springs, providing more space for trampoline activities and jumping!
So, you can hop to it and get a gift ticked off the list that the whole family will love!
