Christmas 2020

It is certainly going to be a different Christmas this year

If we have learnt anything this year living with the Covid Virus, it is just how important our gardens and outdoor spaces are – whatever the weather. It has been challenging, but our team have been busy delivering and installing our play equipment into gardens all over the country.

If you are considering purchasing some swings, a sandpit or a play fort for your garden or as a gift to go in another garden NOW would be a good time to get that organised.

Call us today 01577 840 570, email info@caledoniaplay.com or order online.

In this ever-changing situation, we believe that the best course of action is to order now and store them until needed. Our packaging is very plain so won’t give the surprise away although it might be a little harder to hide a slide. With the risk of further travel restrictions, of the couriers being under greater pressure or, even though we are taking all Covid preventative actions, our colleagues needing to self-isolate, deliveries may be disrupted and we want to avoid any disappointment.

So, our plea is to act now – and we (or Santa’s little helpers) will do their utmost to make this Christmas extra special. Buy them a gift that will be long lasting, sustainable, playable all year round, healthy and fun. Our wooden play equipment ticks all the boxes.

And however many we can celebrate with, we can be that bit healthier and meet outside.

Our suggested To Do list

  • Go to our Gallery for inspiration and see what we do
  • Ask the children what they would like (within reason) and send us your wish list
  • Email or text a link to our Website to anyone who has asked for advice on what to get the children/grandchildren for Christmas
  • Ask Caledonia Play to send out a paper brochure to Grandma or people who prefer something solid to look at
  • Order NOW and find a space in the garden or garage for storage
  • Call the office TODAY if you are interested in an assembly – we have capacity, but spaces are filling up

Here are a few gift ideas to get you started

Garden Goal Posts and Rugby Goal Posts – Goal Posts for the active, sporty members of the family – test out their kicking skills.

Cacoons – colourful tents in the air. A peaceful space for your dreamers.

Chin Up Bar – Have you seen one of our newest products? Proving popular not just with the children. For those who like to see things from a different perspective. And if you like to spin too why not combine with the Tumble Bar? Buy the set of two together for a special discount.

Sandpits – Combine our ever-popular Sandpit with an extra Waterproof Cover and save on delivery.

Binoculars, Periscope & Camo Net – for those that like to know what is coming and like to plan ahead. Also for the curious! These pieces can be added to our play equipment or anywhere in the garden to make for a more creative and fun outdoor space. Buy all three for a special discount.


Camo Net – a useful and adaptable bit of outdoor kit. Encourage your builders to make their own dens, or if it all gets too much just hide yourself from the world for a while.

Single Swing Frame – you may not have the biggest garden, but maybe you can fit in our Single Swing. Great for active play but also a good spot for thinking and just being outside.

Double Swing frame with Extension and Slide Frame – a simple combination with space for 3 swings that lets you ring the changes over time.

Garden Play Fort with Swing Extension – Go large. This is a present that will be enjoyed long after the tinsel has been hoovered away. A den, swings, ramp, slide – a bit of everything to keep the children happy, entertained and outside for many years to come.

Family Basket Swing – One of our all-time family favourites. Pile on the whole family – there’s room for 6 – no problem – but perhaps this year only with your household bubble 😊
