Themed Play

children playing in a car themed playground equipment

What is themed play equipment?

Themed play equipment uses themes that are familiar to young children. Children can take on roles from real-life situations and imitate actions from the real world in the playground.

The theme of traffic is familiar to children from a young age and is an excellent way for children to use their imagination and create their own games. Our range of freestanding transport themed equipment includes fire trucks, trains and carriages. All of these units are familiar to children and are all a comfortable friendly size for younger children to enjoy.

Themed play can help improve children's communication skills, imagination and social skills as they make friends while playing. With a wide range of themed units to choose from we have units to suit all budgets and sites.

Benefits of Themed Play

Children learn while playing and role play and imaginative play encourage children to imitate themes from the real world in the playground. As children play they are improving their language and communication skills as well as improving their social skills. Children will come together and create their own games without instruction as they are comfortable with the familiar themes - more themed equipment is available within our range including playhouses and toddler units.
