Inspirational Playground Concept
'Trains, no matter where in the world, all look similar, but distinctive. They transport people and materials and as centrepiece on a playground, they can transport enormous quantities of fun for children ...'
Play Designer, KOMPAN Design Studio
The Train and Wagon present a fun and challenging play experience for big and small children from the age of four.
In the train cab a large dashboard motivates dramatic play and trains logical thinking. The kettle presents as a circular space to climb through, and a 3-dimensional net allows for accessing the space under the train.
The Wagon, apart from inspiring use of language in imaginative dramatic play, stimulates physical play, through climbing and sliding. All the inside and outside meeting points support social interaction.

Turning themes, ideas and stories into playgrounds

The playgrounds come in all kinds of themes and can be moulded and thematised to your local area and community, or to fit a specific environment. Always loaded with the play activities we have developed over half a century. The play structures are made of highly durable and vandalism-resistant materials that make them last for decades to come. Also, they are safe and certifiable like all products we have built over the past 50 years.

Building a playground is not child’s play. It is a major construction. From clearing the area for foundations to finishing off the site, it involves heavy equipment, extensive materials, complex products and expert knowledge. All these factors must be precisely coordinated to avoid delays. Our expert teams have done it many times and are happy to take this load off your shoulders.
