Shop By Age

Find affordable, high-quality commercial-grade playground equipment suitable for any age at AAA State of Play. We offer the best selection of age-appropriate products for schools, parks, childcare facilities, hospitals, churches, and more. Shopping by age is the best way to search through our structures, fitness equipment, and independent play items to discover the right products for your project. There’s something for everyone, from infants and preschoolers to teenagers and beyond.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) are responsible for determining the age ranges used by manufacturers and distributors of playground equipment. These groups are categorized based on physical ability, stages of development, and the overall sizes of children. The guidelines allow designers to integrate interesting and challenging elements to keep kids safely engaged in play. Whether searching for equipment to add to an existing playground or planning an entirely new one, it’s important to evaluate the ages of the primary users and purchase the appropriate equipment.

According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), school-age children require at least an hour of physical activity every day. Preschool-age children should be playing throughout the day to promote maximum growth and development. No matter the age, children need to stay moving for the benefit of their health and wellbeing. One of the easiest ways to get kids to lay their devices down and engage in play is to show them elaborate, dynamic, and colorful playgrounds. The benefit of age-appropriate play equipment goes beyond aesthetics and entertainment. It’s a matter of public health and wellness.

In addition, selecting age-appropriate play equipment is crucial to ensure a worry-free and fun playground for kids. While younger children need safe and interactive activities, older children will want to challenge themselves athletically and climb, slide, swing, and run with their friends. It is important to build a playground that caters to the correct audience, as young children may be intimidated by tall structures and advanced climbers. In contrast, older school children may find small slides and activity panels too easy and unappealing. Borders and surfacing can also help planners separate sections intended for use by different ages.

At AAA State of Play, we offer a diverse assortment of play equipment that caters to each age group’s specific physical, mental, and social needs. Our team has organized a selection of popular products by age group to help you easily find the right pieces to fit your playground.

6-23 months: Equipment for infants and toddlers is typically low-to-the-ground and interactive. These products often feature tactile game panels to help the very young learn about the surrounding world. Our items help nurture cognitive, social, visual, and motor skills as little adventurers explore the playground. These structures and activity centers are ideal for nurseries, daycares, and preschools.

Ages 2-5: As they develop their motor skills and hand-eye coordination, preschool age children will begin to explore larger structures and independent play items. Incorporate any of our interesting and suitable early playground equipment like spring riders or seesaws to suit the evolving requirements of small kids aged 2 to 5.

Ages 5-12: Physical and cognitive abilities can greatly differ among kids in this age range. But overall, elementary to middle school aged children are looking for higher difficulty challenges and bigger structures to conquer at recess. Playground equipment for this age group includes net climbers and multi-level play structures with varying elements to challenge older kids while remaining safe for the youngest in the category.

Ages 2-12: Serving a broad age range, playsets for kids aged 2-12 are great additions to daycares and childcare centers, churches, schools, parks, and public plazas. These units feature activities that all kids can enjoy such as slides, learning panels, and musical instruments while also adding formidable tests such as climbers to capture the attention of older children.

Ages 13-Adult: Outdoor fitness equipment is an ideal way to involve teens and adults in a playground environment. The physical abilities of ages 13 to adult require more structured challenges and heavy duty exercise equipment to match. Friends can gather for a quick playground workout on machines with multiple seats or monkey bars for adults, making the experience more social and enjoyable.
