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 leopard gecko, 5 fish, 4 chickens and 1 husband.
I came up with the idea for Bijou when I was looking for an outdoor play structure for my house during the Covid-19 pandemic. I saw a lot of old, unused structures that took over people’s yards and I knew I wanted something better.
With over 10 years of experience in product development for major global brands, 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.
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. Bijou must be staked down for safety.
It’s actually 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
You need a Bijou Build design kit from us. This includes steel hinge top bracket, 5 panels, 5ft hover platform, 5 anchor feet, 15 ground stakes, 2 carrying straps and all hardware needed. You will also need five 10ft long pressure treated 2x4’s to be exact. You can purchase your Bijou with or without wood. If you would prefer to get the wood from your local hardware store, you can indicate that at checkout (the price will adjust automatically). There are no fancy cuts- just standard 2x4’s right off the shelf. The 2x4’s should be construction grade pressure treated for outdoor use.
You will also need an 8ft step ladder and a drill to assemble the Bijou with the included wood screws.
With that, you’re ready to get started!
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. Weight limit 250lbs/ 113kg.
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.
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.
