Easy Quick Setup!
Those kids keep you busy! Bijou is made for quick and easy assembly. Your initial assembly takes just under an hour with a helping hand or two.
1. SET OUT YOUR SUPPLIES
Ensure you have your Bijou Build kit and your pressure treated wood.
2. CHOOSE YOUR LOCATION
We recommend a relatively flat area, free of low-hanging branches or other obstructions. Also, choose a soft surface for staking.
3. ASSEMBLE WOOD TO BRACKETS
It helps to have a couple adults in this step. See product manual for more detailed instructions.
4. ATTACH PANELS
Easily attach your five teslin panels in the order you’d like with the velcro straps provided.
5. STAKE TO THE GROUND
Stake your Bijou Build to the ground to ensure everything stays put.
6. PLAY AND PUT AWAY
When you are done playing, remove the stakes, fold up the tent, and secure it with the included straps. We include easy to carry handles, so 2 adults (it's heavy!) can carry the Bijou to a new location or store it.

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!
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.
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.
