These days there is no much in the media about children being hurt or going missing which is why so many parents are now reluctant to let their children out of their sight. Obviously this is not always easy and you still also need to let your child have fun and enjoy the outdoors, but you still want to be able to keep an eye on them, especially at a very young age.

    Hi, I agree totally. It used to be that kids would be running around outside by themselves out of sight of the parents, but now parents won’t even let their kids more than 10ft away at all times.

    There is also all the talk off too much TV & computer games ruining kids health (which I may not fully agree with), so a way to get kids outside playing, exercising, and using their imaginations is always going to be good.

    Climbing frames, especially the really cool wooden ones are expensive, sometimes really expensive. But I suppose they will last for years, so if you break it down over this long time period (and potentially several kids worth of play), it is a good investment.
