The kit is designed to encourage social interaction, co-operation and problem solving and comprises 10 inter-related, colourful shapes which can be moved, joined and arranged by children to create new environments for play every time it's used. It is weather proof, soft but robust and requires no installation or safety surfacing.

Working with Snug & Outdoor, the original designer of the playground equipment, Sutcliffe Play has relaunched the kit as Snug Evolution, with a new colour scheme.

A new piece of equipment, The Cog, can be used to create pathways or can be linked to other elements using Snug Noodles. It can also be used as a building block as it fits over both the Bump and the Cone easily.

Andy Love from Sutcliffe Play said: "Snug launched eight years ago and was the result of a 15-year process of research and evaluation by Snug & Outdoor into the way that children behave, react and play in specific environments.

"Since then Snug has transformed many playgrounds across the world including in schools, leisure attractions and even hotels.

"We've also seen Snug play an important role in schools as part of Physical Literacy from foundation to key stage 2. With the addition of our Physical Literacy Resource kit, Snug Evolution stimulates natural exercise and embodies fundamental movement skills."
