The Evolution of Snug

02 March 2016

Sutcliffe Play has given Snug, the large scale, flexible, loose parts play system a comprehensive makeover with a new name, a new colour scheme and a new piece of equipment.

Working with Snug & Outdoor, the original designer of the playground equipment, Sutcliffe Play has relaunched the kit as Snug Evolution. 

Snug Evolution’s new colour scheme will transform playgrounds into dynamic and creative playscapes for children to explore, create, discover and learn.

The kit is designed to encourage social interaction, co-operation and problem solving and comprises 10 inter-related, colourful shapes which can be moved, joined and arranged by children to create new environments for play every time it’s used.

Sutcliffe Play has also introduced even more play opportunities with the introduction of a new piece of equipment.  The Cog can be used to create pathways or can be linked to other elements using Snug Noodles. It can also be used as a building block as it fits over both the Bump and the Cone easily.

Andy Love from Sutcliffe Play says:

“Snug launched 8 years ago and was the result of a 15 year process of research and evaluation by Snug & Outdoor into the way that children behave, react and play in specific environments.

“Since then Snug has transformed many playgrounds across the world including in schools, leisure attractions and even hotels.

“We’ve also seen Snug play an important role in schools as part of Physical Literacy from foundation to key stage 2.  With the addition of our Physical Literacy Resource kit, Snug Evolution stimulates natural exercise and embodies fundamental movement skills.”

Snug Evolution is weather proof and requires no installation or safety surfacing. It is soft and tactile yet robust enough to withstand the rigours of the playground

Andy Love concludes:

“Snug Evolution allows children to take control of their play and helps them to learn through physical and imaginative play.”
