The Little Hippo's have fun at Brean!

20th August 2014

Hippo’s team of ‘Little Hippo Kid Consultants’ had a fantastic day out at Brean playing with the new Interactive Play Platform and Splash Zone that has been installed this summer.   The multi slide was the Little Hippo’s favourite feature as they enjoyed going on it with friends and the water splashing in their faces!  They also enjoyed soaking each other with water from the tipping trough as well as shooting water from the water cannons at a selection of targets!

Little Hippos are our very own team of "kid consultants" who give us advice and ideas for our latest designs and product development. Ranging from 1 to 13 years old, the Little Hippos play a vital role in our design and testing process.

Putting our products through their paces is a key function of the Little Hippos. We test, trial and monitor the performance of our products and how children interact with them. The Little Hippos provide us with critical feedback as to what they liked, disliked and would like to change.

A big Hippo thanks goes to all of our Little Hippos who came to play at Brean!

Play Platform and Splash Battle for Brean Leisure Park

20th August 2014

Hippo has made a ‘Splash’ at Brean Leisure Park by installing a highly interactive Play Platform and Splash Battle at the Park’s new Indoor Splash Pool, in time for the summer holidays!  The Play Platform is constructed of four levels and incorporates high and low level features to cater for a wide range of age and ability groups, allowing children to play both on poolside and within the pool.  Features include themed showers, tipping buckets, water wheels and spray rails.  An interactive mast provides surprise and anticipatory excitement as well as big splash play with its large tipping bucket and splash board.  Children can exit the Play Platform via one of Hippo’s exhilarating slides.  A multi slide provides great competitive play amongst children racing each other to see who can splash into the pool first!  A single lane tube slide with special visual effects adds to the excitement.

A Splash Battle featuring squirting cannons enables children to aim and shoot water at a selection of targets, including a water wheel which then splashes the water onto those in the pool below it.

Finally a Splash Zone for toddlers and less water confident children focuses on sensory and low level play.  Features include interactive play panels, interactive channels, short masts, a spray hoop and a water web.  These features will promote tactile play and enable children to manipulate the flow of the water coming from these features.  Two bright and vibrant slides dedicated to toddlers complete the Splash Zone.

"From the design and planning phase through to installation the service Hippo provided was first class, our project had numerous contractors all on site at once and Hippo worked seamlessly with the rest of the team."

"We couldn’t be happier with the final product that Hippo delivered, we’ve got a really modern and different looking structure that is already proving a real hit with our customers. From the first moment we open the area in the morning through to the end of the day the area always has customers using it which is fantastic to see. The Hippo team did an excellent job and I would certainly recommend them to anyone looking to install water play equipment."

New Play Features for Haven Holiday Park, Burnham-on-Sea

27th June 2014

Hippo has recently installed a range of high and low level water play features at Haven Holiday Park, Burnham-on-Sea, in time for the summer holidays.  

The indoor teaching pool has been transformed into a highly interactive, fun and exciting water play area aimed at increasing water confidence.   A short mast supplies 2 interactive water channels with a flow of water which toddlers will enjoy manipulating through the channels and back into the pool.  Older children will love the surprise and anticipatory element of the large tipping buckets, water wheels and shark showers which are suspended above the pool on a span pipe.  High level water spraying, tipping and showering at regular intervals will create a big splash of excitement amongst the whole family.
