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, but they also 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.

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!
