We believe Blue Rabbit wooden climbing frames provide excellent value for money, which is backed by excellent customer service. Read on to see why you should purchase a Blue Rabbit climbing frame.

Blue Rabbit Climbing Frames – Value for Money

Blue Rabbit climbing frames have the theme value for money, running through the whole of their range. From conception and design right through to production value for money is what Blue Rabbit is about. Value for money means a product that is made to last, a product that is designed using the best materials. For example all the plastic components like the slides and swing seats are UV-stablised making them colour fast and not likely to fade in the sun. Similarly the polyester canvas roofs are all waterproof and UV-resistant. The ropes on the Blue Rabbit climbing frames are polyhemp rope, which is kind to young hands and consist of almost indestructible resin – so built to last.
