Playground Animals

Since 1927, Miracle Recreation® has understood the importance of outdoor play spaces and playgrounds. Over the years, we’ve been creating innovative designs and developing playground equipment for school-aged kids.

Our playground designs such as caterpillar, turtle, ladybug and jungle animal equipment bring the thrill back to outdoor spaces and shape the future of play. Our sculpted play elements are unique structures that can fit a range of facilities, environments and budgets. With options ranging from coral reef climbers to alligators, we’ll help you create a safe and thrilling playground that kids of all ages will love.

Sculpted Play Elements

Most kids have an interest in and a love for animals. From black bears in a forest to pufferfish swimming deep in the ocean, our sculpted play elements will complement your playground design and capture the interest of kids of all ages. 

These products are made of GFRP (Glass Fiber Reinforced Plastic), which is much lighter and friendlier to the touch than GFRC (Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete) products. Less weight means they are easier to install and less costly to ship.

Benefits of Including Animals in Your Playground Design

Whether you are reconfiguring a current playground or preparing to design a brand new one, there are several benefits of including animal playground equipment like turtles and ladybugs in your plan. These eye-catching animals will encourage kids to:

  • Get outside and be active: Given today’s indoor distractions and electronics, it can be hard to encourage kids to get outside and move around. An innovative and visually appealing playground filled with caterpillar equipment, for example, will grab their attention. Playground animals help get kids outdoors and enjoying the fresh air and sunshine, which can enhance their health and overall well-being.
  • Socialize and take part in imaginative play: Because of how realistic our playground animals look, kids of all ages will be able to let their imagination and self-expression run wild. Whether they are pretending to be a zookeeper or go on a safari adventure, they’ll be able to socialize and play together while stimulating their imagination.
  • Take part in hands-on learning: Hands-on learning encourages a deeper understanding of and passion for a variety of topics. Kids can learn a great deal about nature and biology by exploring the outdoors and learning more about the animals they are playing with on the playground.

High-Quality Playground Equipment You Can Count On

Our jungle playground equipment is constructed out of GFRP, which makes our sculpted play elements lighter and more friendly to the touch. This material delivers several additional benefits, including:

  • GFRP has a very high strength-to-weight ratio, with tensile strength similar to steel
  • Low weights per square foot mean faster installation and lower shipping costs for you
  • Our UV-resistant materials withstand the sun’s harsh rays
  • Non-porous construction prevents freeze and thaw cracking as compared to similar concrete products

Playground Animals for Any Space

Our playground animals can easily be adapted for a range of facilities and outdoor spaces, including:

  • Parks and recreation
  • Schools
  • Daycares
  • Churches
  • Urban environments
  • Neighborhoods and HOAs

When designing new playground animals for your space, our team will work with you and take into consideration everything from the location of your desired playground to input from any stakeholders. Whether you want to make a statement or encourage active play in your community, we can help you achieve your goals.
