Great backyard addition

Finding something that a 15 and 5yo can both enjoy is really tough but they both get something out of the Bijou! The customer service was great, quickly replacing one damaged board and solar light. So happy we purchased this.

Versatile and fun!

Ok, so I think I bought this for my nephews. But I’m a piano teacher so maybe it all started out as a way to occupy siblings of students as well. But it didn’t just stop there. I was in my yard the other day and decided to hang out in one of the hammock style parts and ended up taking the best nap. My sister in law carried a book in there the other day and read for an hour.

Now don’t get me wrong, the kids love it. It’s exciting and fun and very different from other play structures. I watch people slow down on bikes and cars and admirer it as they pass. The neighbors have all asked permission to play as well.

I can’t recommend this enough. It’s a whole bunch of fun for the price point that it’s in. And maybe even well beyond that.

Mainstay Duo is legit

First impression was surprise at the heft of each Mainstay (without wood) in a good way. The panels feel super durable. Our daughter and her friends play on it regularly and it’s held up through that and several thunderstorms perfectly. Pictures don’t do the bridge justice. The rope is much thicker in person and this is coming from someone who rock climbs and is used to rope. Every aspect of the duo easily holds up to an adult’s weight.

I know this is marketed as something to set up and take down and that feels practical for a single Mainstay but with 2 and the bridge between them it doesn’t make sense to do on the regular so plan accordingly.

Did need to modify a couple of things. The bijou sway swing and the upper supports of the bridge tend to slide down the wood over time. Was a super easy fix to screw a plastic spacer into the wood to give the ropes a positive stop to prevent the sliding and doesn’t affect the ability to fold and store.

We’d buy this all again if something somehow happened to it.

We ❤️ Bijou

Thank you, Amanda & Bijou team, for creating such fun products for the entire family. We ordered two mainstays and the rambler for our daughter. She and her friends couldn't get enough of them before we put them away in our shed to prep for the colder weather coming (bonus points for being able to fold these up and put them away easily). We just ordered the sway and A frame swing arm adaptor kit and know that it will bring even more fun for all of us once spring hits. Our friends said how they just ordered the mainstay for their kids as well, and I anticipate seeing more and more of them pop up along Long Island as word spreads about how fun they are. Bravo, Bijou!

Bijou Build in TX

We ordered the mainstay duo and it has been wonderful. The kids love the rope bridge and swing (Bijou Sway) as well as the blue platform. It provides a decent amount of shade and does not seem to overheat in the sun. We expected this, but it definitely took a lot more time than estimated on the website to set up. That being said, the materials are high quality and the directions were generally easy to follow. We purchased the wood locally instead of shipping it so you have to factor that in to your total build time. We are excited about all the modular pieces and how the kids (currently 5,3,2) will be able to use it for years to come. If it is helpful, here are some other install details:

We live in Dallas and have artificial grass in our backyard. We were still able to install the stakes; however, I imagine it would have been easier to do on grass. Also, there is a slight incline in our yard and we had to shift the location of the two mainstays so they could be on mostly level ground. It is pretty big! We have an 8 foot privacy fence and the top of the mainstays show above that. Thus far it seems to be holding up to the extreme heat we have experienced this summer, but time will tell. Unfortunately installing it on artificial grass makes it more difficult to fold up and store.

FAQ

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.

It’s actually 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, which comes with all the fixin’s and five 10ft pressure treated 2x4’s to be exact.  It comes automatically with your kit, but if you would prefer to get the wood from your local hardware store, you can indicate that at checkout as well (the price will adjust automatically). There’s no fancy cuts- just good ol’ 2x4’s. 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.

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.
