Playtime is climbtime! Our original, award winning and bestselling play frame, the Wee’UN triangle is inspired by the philosophies of Emmi Pikler and supports a child’s natural desire to explore their environment and their abilities through free, open-ended play.
Climbing is just one function of the Wee’UN – it can also be a baby gym, tunnel, a bridge, a tepee, a den…the possibilities are endless and the Wee’UN will grow with your child for years and years of fun!
Rosie says: “Wee’un is how we say ‘wee one’ in Northern Ireland when we refer to a child, so it seemed like the perfect name for our first ever activity frame! The Wee’UN is suitable from birth. It’s ideal to use as a sensory gym for newborn babies, progressing to a fun tunnel for sitters and crawlers, and a fantastic support for little ones as they find their feet, pulling up to stand and then cruising along!”
As your child develops, the Wee’UN helps develop their gross motor skills by supporting dynamic yet safe physical movement, building your child’s confidence as they get to grips with climbing.
The Wee’UN’s single rung top provides a stable, central point that helps your child balance as they progress towards getting up and over the top – an achievement that boosts their confidence whether it’s for the first or the 100th time!
The self-supporting frame is super strong. When it’s not in use, simply remove the knobs, fold flat, and then reinsert the knobs to lock closed – this means it can be safely stored anywhere, or even hung on the wall!
The Wee’UN is compatible with all Wee’UN accessories including the ladder and slide for truly open-ended play.

Environmental values are at the heart of everything we do. We’re passionate about safeguarding our planet for future generations and therefore we hold ourselves and our suppliers to high standards on sustainability. All our timber is sourced from FSC or PEFC certified suppliers. We work hard to ensure that we generate minimal wastage during the manufacturing process, and any offcuts we do create are recycled. We also use planet-friendly, water-based paints and we ship our products in recycled cardboard boxes with no plastic packaging, using carbon neutral courier services where possible.
Giving back to the planet
As well as sourcing all our timber from sustainable forestry sources, we’re giving back to the planet through our partnership with Just One Tree – which means that for every sale of our Wee’UN, Finn, Slide and Tearmann, a tree is planted.
