organic playground equipment

If you don't have trees to climb, then this certainly looks like the next best thing:


New Zealand company Dreamweavers make all their play equipment from organic, naturally shaped tree branches and strong colourful ropes.

We at Dreamweavers believe that all children need a magical place to climb, play and daydream in. Therefore we create beautiful organic jungle-gyms custom built into your special spot in the garden, whether it’s built into a tree, freestanding, by the pool or tucked away in that secret corner - we build them all. We also specialise in big jungle-gyms and play structures for the school ground.


They look like something kids would dream of creating themselves.


Or something Fred Flintstone would build for Pebbles in their backyard!


Or giant spider webs perhaps.

  3. These are magnificent! And it's not just kids who might want to make them -- I'm already scheming about how to make some of these myself!

  6. A follow up . . . I've been experimenting with a lashing technique I learned from Gever Tulley. I think that's the secret. I think we'll try to make our own ladder next week, although we'll probably resort to nails.
