Playhouses and themed play

What are commercial playhouses and themed play?

Commercial playhouses and themed playground equipment for toddlers are excellent ways to generate role-play and stimulate language by introducing the concept of dramatic play.

It’s a big world out there, especially if you view it through the eyes of a child. So, how nice is it when familiar objects, the house, the train, the truck, all come down to a comfortable, ‘friendly’ size? The open-plan design of the themes, like the Flower House, the  Fire Engine or the Mars Rover, encourages children to play together, share plans, and communicate. It is the first stage in forming a community. 

The breadth of design in our range of commercial, themed playground equipment is vast; from Crocodiles to Carriages, Fire Engines to Jumbo Jets. Themed playground equipment opens the door to understanding the value of friendship.

What are the benefits of commercial playhouses and themed play? 

Children learn through play. And pretend play is a way for children to practice their world. Playhouses and themed play encourage children to engage in unstructured, imaginative play that promotes creativity without caregivers’ instructions. Children engage in themed play, act out social behaviours, and express themselves while practising vital skill sets. 

Other themed play variations are the musical-themed play panels or free play with sand & water play.
