Checklist For Climbing Frames For Kids

Checklist for children climbing frames

Safety
  • Use of a climbing frame should not occur before 3 years of age.
  • Up to an approximate age of 7 to 8 years, children should not play on the climbing frame unsupervised. This also depends on the individual developmental stage, among other things.
  • You can also look for quality seals such as the GS or a TÜV seal, which guarantee a high level of safety for the equipment.
  • If in doubt, you should choose a scaffold made of impregnated wood. This is more stable than plastic.
  • Make sure that all screws of the climbing scaffold are covered with screw covers to prevent injuries.
  • You should also make sure that there are enough possibilities for your child to hold on. Choose a scaffold with one too many handholds rather than one too few.
Size
  • The size of a climbing frame is extremely variable and should depend on how much space you have available and how many children should be able to play on it at the same time.
  • From about 2 meters in length you will find suitable products.
  • For more than one child, it is better to choose a scaffold from a length of 3 meters upwards.
Assembly
  • Before buying, check that detailed assembly instructions are included. This is the only way to ensure safe play.
  • If necessary, the seller may even offer an assembly service. If you want to be sure, check this and take advantage of it!
Theme worlds
  • Climbing scaffolds can also be assigned to different theme worlds Pirate ship, Viking ship, castles, spaceships, etc.
  • You can take your child’s interests and preferences into account when choosing.
Accessories and combinations
  • Many climbing frames can be combined with other components
    Swings, slides, sandboxes, etc.
  • If you plan to expand the structure at a later date, you can check directly whether a product offers direct expansion options.
  • For additional protection, you should also purchase fall protection mats, which are laid out underneath the climbing scaffold.
  • If necessary, elements of the scaffolding can also be exchanged to offer more variety. If that’s important to you, then feel free to check beforehand whether there are variable elements here. Often swings can be replaced by climbing ropes, climbing walls by ladders or slides by slide bars.
Indoor climbing frames
  • While most climbing frames are intended for outdoor use, there are also certain constructions for indoor use.
  • These are also suitable for even younger children from about 1.5 years.
  • They are made of lightweight plastic and are usually barely more than 1 m tall.
  • Again, they should not be played with unsupervised to ensure the greatest possible safety.
