We’ve had a great time selecting the furniture for our new nursery. We’ve decided to furnish our nursery entirely with Community Playthings, who build furniture by hand from solid wood. Community Playthings design furniture and toys for schools and nurseries which encourage open-ended play, making sure a child’s imagination is never limited by what they play with.
About Community Playthings
We design and manufacture furniture and play equipment in the UK for primary schools and early years settings. Together with visionary educators, we have been creating beautiful learning environments for over 50 years.
Designed for children
The way that children play influences our designs. Each item is designed to support open-ended play, making sure a child’s imagination is never limited by what they play with. The environment children play in has a great effect on them. Calm, protected areas allow children to concentrate on their play. Children who have ample opportunities for play go on to become eager learners. Our furniture is modular and adaptable, enabling the environment to be changed and developed.Creating environments

Anyone who visits our workshops soon understands why Community Playthings products are different. They are designed, made and sold by a community of people that have been caring for children since 1920. Over 50 years ago we started selling toys and furniture that reflect our care and love for children. Believing that children thrive on imaginative and open-ended play, the first products sold were wooden blocks – the same shape and size we still make today!
