This large wooden Tipi Is a phenomenal new element in our product line.

Handholds and ladder slats offer different upper body challenges on a completely safe playground element. Hanging inside in the middle is a length of rope fixed to the ground, which offers yet another climbing challenge!

The whole regal structure is about 12 feet tall to its peak, so it’s an immediate, attractive space in which children can play and make-believe.

Tipi’s play a significant role in our nation's history and can be used to teach units about our Native American heritage, dwellings, nomadic living, the simplistic beauty of useful structures, wind dynamics, design, heat retention, and many other concepts.

In addition, they make wonderful meeting places, provide a fabulous sense of enclosure (that's also well lit), and provide much-needed shade in sunny areas.

Because of the spacing between the slats, and the open sides, the Tipi is relatively transparent which makes supervision from almost any angle very easy.

This is a rugged play element that is good for any age group

This Tipi comes as an easy to assemble kit that can be put up in a few hours. The Tipi should rest on top of solid ground with the base buried in the fall zone material.

The footprint is about a 12’ diameter circle. A 6 foot fall zone is required all around, so its a circle 24’ in diameter.
