Plum Climbing Pyramid Review – best climbing frame for kids

A trip to the play park is always welcome, but sometimes there just isn’t time! And having recently enjoyed (or not) the ordeal of potty training, too many trips have been cut short due to unforeseen brown events.

We’re lucky to have a garden that can accommodate a climbing frame. Having our own climbing area adds a little more fun to the garden, and gives our little one somewhere safe and close to burn off all that excess energy! Read our Plum Climbing Pyramid review to find out why this is our top pick!

Plum Climbing Pyramid Review

This is the climbing frame we ended up buying, and we have no regrets. It’s fantastic and has loads of different options for playing, climbing and exploring!

It was delivered in three sets of wood, with all fixings supplied. As for tools, a power drill was pretty much essential, along with a set of spanners, a tape measure and spirit level. Putting it all together was no easy feat, and took 3 adults about 4 hours. But, the instructions were clear and all the parts were well packaged and labeled. All the wood is strong and sturdy, and it really does seem like it is built to last.

Fun fun fun

Size wise, it’s just about OK for our three year old. He’s quite tall, and already an excellent climber. He loves the slide and the climbing wall, and can spend literally hours doing laps round and round. It’s easy to see that this will be a toy that will last for a number of years, both in terms of its physical durability and the play options it provides.

We chose the Plum Climbing Pyramid because of the den that is made within the pyramid. This gives some welcome shade on sunnier days, and also mean that younger children can play without having to climb up. Within 10 minutes of it being put up, it became his “house” and we were invited inside for some dinner – although considering the effort it took up, the meal of grass that he served was somewhat lacking.

The back of the pyramid has a net and ladder

The slide also has the potential to be hooked up to a water hose. We’ve not done this yet, but again is another reason why we feel that this is an investment we will be enjoying for many years. Little features like that, and the excellent build quality make this our top pick for children’s climbing frames.
