Our Plum climbing frame upgrade and storm repair

by Clare Mansell

Two years ago we bought Theo a climbing frame for his third birthday, before we bought it I did a lot of research including looking (unsuccessfully!) for a video review on youtube. After it arrived I recorded my own review and discovered that I wasn’t the only one looking for more information as 24 months down the line more than 2000 people have watched it.


So when we needed to do a repair and add a couple of upgrades it seemed like a good idea to film another video! Living in quite an exposed location our climbing frame took a bit of a battering in Storm Katie (as did our house) so we have replaced the slide, added reinforcement where the slide joins the wood and found a way of achoring the frame to the ground (in case it happens again!)

We also used the opportunity to add a swing arm to the frame, which is an upgrade you can buy from Plum. If you’d like to see what the finished climbing frame looks like or to find out more about how we secured it, please do watch the video below.

Thank you to Plum who gave us a discount on our purchases in exchange for recording this video.

I didn’t think that climbing frame could get any better – love the swing addition x

What a fab video review! Such a pro! I think our swing set is plum too. Ours had a little desk on the side which is no longer after a storm caused our outside table and chairs to fly into and get stuck on it! These storms are crazy!! I agree that swapping the seats is so easy!
