Jump for Joy
Three distinct ranges – Frolic, Move & Play, and Sport – of soft play shapes which assist in the step-by-step development of active growing children. Each range is carefully designed to complement the others and in total they combine to provide a progressively challenging environment for gymnastics and movement activities.
The soft foam shapes are attractive and appropriately scaled in size, colourful and fun to use. Uniquely for products of this type, all three ranges are actively endorsed by British Gymnastics.
The key issue when specifying soft play!
Manufactured in the UK, our premier quality combustion modified Safeguard foam is wrapped within a fire resistant cotton fabric which enables these products to comply with the stringent Sports Council fire test SCFM87 using ignition source 5. The tough colourful PVC coated nylon covering is supple and easily cleaned.
'Endorsed by British Gymnastics'
The soft play ‘start point’ for nursery age (1 to 4 years) children. Each of the four Frolic playstations has been designed to present many movement learning experiences. Using the activity programmes included in the support pack allows non-specialists to structure and monitor meaningful play sessions and provide opportunities to chart and reward early progress.
Jump for Joy will complement Box of Tricks, Gym Time and traditional gymnastic apparatus. As with many other products in the Niels Larsen range, a Support Pack is available to help teachers and coaches get the very best from these versatile ranges of equipment. This complete activity programme includes comprehensive guidelines, task cards and record sheets.

A truly magical experience. A huge 5.5m long softplay ‘carpet’ fitted with Velcro® strips and pads which allow children to build their own structures by ‘sticking’ on up to nineteen different shapes in limitless combinations. Using the Support Pack tutors can carefully promote concepts such as stand, walk, over, under, push-pull, rock and build.

The Sport range is ideal for aspiring gymnasts (aged 7 to 11 years) working within a more formal approach to skill and physical education goals. Every item can be used for a specific activity whilst combinations of several pieces create variety and challenge. Children can confidently attempt basic gymnastic elements encouraged by the soft support of the Sport range or just feel inspired to try all the climbing, sliding and jumping activities their imagination suggests.
Children love the sensation of rolling on their stomach or back. This apparatus is confidence building and promotes spatial awareness.
Designed to assist backward and forward rolls – the feeler strips guide hand positions. Great for sliding or log rolls.
Used to provide support for handstand positions. Velcro® flaps enable apparatus to be joined together thus reducing the risk from gaps. Use to extend and access other pieces of equipment in combination.
This sturdy unit is ideal for traditional vaulting activities and provides jumping platforms and landing areas. A great confidence booster. The three 305mm tiers separate for varied conditioning activities.
