For the body material of the kids indoor playground. There are three main materials. One is wood material, the other is fiberglass material and rubber material.

Usually, wood material is common in indoor playground for home. It is natural, non-toxic and inexpensive. If you have a tight budget, you can buy this material indoor playground equipment. On the one hand, if your country is rainy and humid, it is unwise to buy wooden indoor soft play equipment. Unless you do some anti-corrosion and moisture-proof treatment on the wooden materials. Otherwise, its service life will be greatly reduced.

For fiberglass material, it is a hit in shopping mall, walking street,  theme parks, amusement parks, schools, kindergartens, restaurants and cafes, etc. FRP material is strong and durable. What’s more, the surface is very smooth and the shape is changeable. It can be made into different shapes of amusement equipment. The most important thing is that the surface of the amusement equipment made of this material is very bright. So even if you use it for several years, it will still look like new. Fiberglass material has longer service life than wooden and rubber material. Surely it can serve for over 10 years under normal use. Of course, the price will be higher than the other two materials.

As for rubber material, it is rich in color and has strong plasticity. Therefore, it has a strong appeal to children. However, its service life may be shorter.

Other material

  • Plastic components: All plastic parts inside are made of LLDPE and very child-friendly.

  • Floor mat: high-density EVA foam sponge, odor-free and environmentally friendly.

  • PVC soft leather: easy to clean, highly ductile, and highly flame retardant.

  • Filling: high-density pearl cotton and sponge double materials, thickness ≥6mm

As a professional kids indoor playground manufacturer, I can responsibly tell you that the above materials are child-friendly, cheap and durable.
