Introducing Gavin and Hannah Pearce husband and wife team from Essex and their fabulous concept for todays children.
Climbing Tikes is an Essex based business and has been set up by a husband and wife team who know just how important it is to encourage our children to play outdoors. As a family business you can expect to see an excellent service and most certainly you will not be treated as a number.
Climbing Tikes frames have been sourced from a very reliable European manufacturer and are not the flimsy overpriced product that can be seen in most garden centres or high street toy shops. Climbing Tikes are the sole distributor of this product in the UK and can offer excellent deals on delivery and even assembly if required.
When I first discovered this company it was like a light bulb moment... of course this is what we need to get our children away from the front of the TV and computer games and out having fun, learning vital skills for the future.
It has long been a worry of mine that due to the TV and gaming age that we are all in, even down to the very little ones toys... that children are not getting enough opportunity to explore and be creative in the way that perhaps our generation was. When we were children we would go out first thing in the morning with a packed lunch and come bag just before dark, we would clime, run, play and explore whilst setting our imaginations free.
Due to the growing influence of gaming and of course the ever apparent danger that our children are no longer safe to play out all day unsupervised as perhaps we were, children are being less creative through no fault of their own or their parents. As a creative in a creative industry we are just not seeing enough creative playtime with the youngsters and this concerns me for our future and our future generations... if we continue in this vain we will have a next generation of very tech savvy people but potentially with a lack of creative resurgence.
For me Climbing Tikes is the ideal solution, it provides all the elements that we as children would have encountered yet within the safety of the back garden. If yo do one thing this winter for your children, take a look at Climbing Tikes you will not be disappointed. Gavin and Hannah will be only to happy to answer any questions, you can contact them via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
