Real Customer Reviews
A backyard dream!
While struggling with the decision to commit to a giant play structure, we came across Bijou Build. It's been the perfect addition for our backyard. Both our son and daughter use it for climbing on, swinging in and playing make-believe. The materials feel very high quality and the few times we've taken it down, it was easy to pack up and store. Can't wait to see what else they come up with to add on!
Fun & functional for the whole family
I was a little hesitant to venture beyond a standard swing set but am so glad I did. The panels & climbing net are super sturdy and well made. Aesthetically it looks attractive perched prettily in our yard. The lights really make it look magical. My hubby and I appreciate that we can easily take it down and store it. Also super thrilled to support a mom owned business that is creating something that can live for years. We originally purchased for our younger daughter but our teen wants to use it for a glamping themed party. I can see this getting a lot of use!
I love this thing! It was super easy to set up and our kids think the solar lights are magic. I really love that we didn't have to make a huge commitment with where we put it. We haven't put it away yet, but when we need to we can fold it down and pop it into the garage. I also have plans to take it to my parents house when the kids do their annual summer trip. Would definitely recommend!
From The Founder
From The Founder
Hi, I’m Amanda Lacy, inventor, and founder of Bijou Build. I live in a beautiful seaside village in Maine with my 3 children, 1 dog, 1 leopard gecko, 5 fish, 4 chickens and 1 husband.
We came up with the idea for Bijou when we were looking for an outdoor play structure for our children in 2021. We saw a lot of old, unused structures that took over people’s yards and we wanted something better.
With over 10 years of experience in product development for major global brands, including a focus on compliance and safety, I knew I could make something my kids would play with and that I wanted to see in my yard. We are working to make Bijou the future of play. No single use play structures and no single way to play.
With 3 kids, I’m always looking for ways to simplify my life and as the Lupine Lady says, make the world a more beautiful place. Join us on this mission. We can’t wait to see how you and your family Bijou.
Our open-ended and modular design allows your kids to explore and play endlessly. The level of customization and play you get with your Bijou Build play structure you can’t find anywhere else.
Single-use, plastic playsets are often clunky, uninspiring, and bad for the environment. The Bijou Build’s teslin panels made of recycled material are not only sustainable, they look beautiful too.
There are so many ways you can Bijou and you can repurpose it as the years go by and the kids grow up, making it an environmentally responsible and stylish choice.
Bijou is the first play system designed for families. Kids to teens to adults can enjoy Bijou in different ways. The Solar panel and 100LEDs make a magical hangout space and the Sway is the perfect place to enjoy your morning coffee.
Bijou offers UV protection and an fun way for everyone to get outside.
Just about anywhere! It’s an outdoor play structure, but you can use it in the backyard, at the grandparent’s, the lake house and more. We do recommend a relatively flat and soft surface, so the Bijou is safely staked to the ground and the kids can play to their heart’s content.
It most certainly can! Bijou uses outdoor pro grade materials. Steel hinged bracket is powder coated steel with UV resistant coating. The metal hardware is stainless steel and the anchor feet are UV injected nylon.
The panels are made of 50% recycled water bottles and are a permeable UV Teslin material.
Bijou includes 2 storage straps so it is portable, but it is also a sturdy climbing structure so it does need to be staked down.
We also use pressure treated lumber so it is decay and mildew resistant, however, this does make the assembled Mainstay approximately 150lbs
Of course, the sun will breakdown anything given enough time, so it’s always best to store Bijou when it’s convenient or you aren’t using it, but not required, just suggested for longevity.
It’s easy peasy, lemon squeezy! Your initial assembly takes just under an hour with two adults. After that, whenever you want to Bijou, just pop it open, stake it to the ground, and get playing in just a few minutes.
Check out our Assembly Video here.
You need a Bijou Mainstay from us, which comes with all the hardware, panels, hinged bracket etc... and then you need 10ft long 2x4's from your local hardware store. If you order the wood with your Bijou, we will arrange for it to be sent from your local Lowes or Home Depot. We designed Bijou to use standard construction grade lumber that you can find locally. No fancy cuts needed, just 10ft length pressure treated 2x4's right off the shelf.
You will also need an 8ft step ladder and a drill to assemble the Bijou with the included wood screws and a power drill.
With that, you’re ready to get started. Assembly time with 2 adults is approx. 1 hour
We meet or exceed all US safety standards for Children's products and Children's outdoor play equipment including ASTM F963, F1148, EN71-1 and EN71-8. We’ve tested Bijou to the highest standards for use and abuse, torque and tension as well as weathering and UV testing.
Anyone with imagination! Kids, teens, parents, and grandparents alike. Bijou Build’s nature-inspired aesthetic and modular design means it works for your whole family through the years. 250lb max weight.
Years and years! Our fabric panels have been tested for a variety of climates and extended use and abuse scenarios. Plus, your pressure treated wood stands up to the elements and, well, kids. We want your family to use your Bijou and make memories for years to come.
No! it does not. We purposely designed the panels to be as permeable as possible while still providing UV protection and shade. Bijou doesn’t hold water or wind so it is more sturdy and stable.
If your Bijou does ever get marred, simply spray down with soap of your choice and water and give a bit of a scrub with a brush. Similar to outdoor cushions etc…
YES! You have the option to order with wood or without. It couldn't be more simple!
Bijou uses standard construction grade pressure treated 2x4s available at your local hardware store.
Bijou doesn't require ANY special cuts and uses standard length wood at 10ft, so you can grab it right off the shelf.
It is important to use pressure treated wood for it's strength and durability in outdoor applications.
