‘Try before you buy’ ex-demo bargains

As well as having a large online presence at, we are one of the few remaining outdoor play equipment specialists who have a full display site and physical shop where you can come and see, try and buy from our full range of active toys. In fact, that is how we started back in 1990 before the internet took off - ‘try before you buy’ was what everyone wanted to do, especially when spending quite a lot of money on play equipment, that not only had to keep the kids happy and safe but also had to look good in the garden. Being able to offer this allowed our customers to make informed decisions having seen their children physically test out all the options so they felt confident that they were buying the right product.

This ethos still applies today and many of you still like to come and see, touch, feel and compare the larger items rather than making a decision on some nice photos, videos and details on our website. You can also benefit from our knowledge, advice and help built up with over nearly 25 years in the business. So, while the Internet is a crucial part of our business today, we feel strongly that it can never fully replace the need to physically inspect the product, particularly when investing in one of the larger outdoor products.

In line with this ethos, we have a large display in our 2 acre farmhouse garden, which offers lots of wooden climbing frames, wooden swing frames, trampolines and children’s playhouses to try out before you make a decision on which one to buy, with our help and advice, if you need it.

We try to keep our display up to date and looking smart by displaying the latest designs and models which means that we often have some ex-demo products to sell off before replacing them with a newer version. These products are still in great condition and have years of play left in them but they are often available at significant discounts to the comparable new cost. We sell all ex-demo products on a first come first served basis and sold as seen so they are ideal for customers who are local to us. We try to keep delivery and installation costs as low as possible by delivering the ex-demo climbing frames assembled wherever possible (depending on access) which can save even more time and money for you!

We are currently selling some of our display wooden climbing frames and wooden swing frames in readiness for the new season in the spring. The full range of ex-demo products can be seen here.
