(EDINBURGH, SEPT. 18, 2019) – Inclusive Play is pleased to announce an expanded partnership with GameTime, a PlayCore company. Headquartered in the Fort Payne, Alabama.
Inclusive Play is the only company in Europe to specialise solely in inclusive play equipment and we are excited to be launching our products, manufactured in the UK, into North America. GameTime is a leading manufacturer of inclusive playgrounds, custom play spaces and outdoor fitness equipment with global distribution.
In 2018 GameTime began distributing Inclusive Play’s IP12 Wheelspin the first roll on roundabout developed on the market. The first of its kind. This extended partnership will make GameTime the exclusive distributor of Inclusive Play products in the United States, Canada and Mexico. Paul Hoenigmann, Director of Inclusive Play said “Our mission is to design, develop and manufacture quality products that enable children – no matter what their ability – to play together. With GameTime, we will be able to bring inclusive play to more people. It’s an exciting opportunity with a leading manufacturer in the play industry, a company with inclusion as a core value.”
Among the Inclusive Play products available are the IP20 Infinity Bowl, a single user spinner with a unique design to allow access and self-movement; IP09 Fusion, a multi-user spinner designed at transfer height for people of all abilities providing additional postural support when in use; IP16 Butterfly, a modern, inclusive take on the traditional seesaw; IP05 Orb our unique tactile & sensory play element.
Parks and recreation leaders from across America will get a first look at these new products at the 2019 National Recreation and Parks Association (NRPA) Conference and Expo September 24-26, in Baltimore, Maryland. Visitors will be able to try out the products for themselves and learn from Inclusive Play representatives what makes them beneficial for community playgrounds.
“NRPA is a great showcase for Inclusive Play’s products and for our new partnership with them” said Tom Norquist, Sr. Vice President with PlayCore, “Inclusive Play has long made it their mission to adapt popular playground activities or create innovative new products that make play possible for children of all abilities. Their commitment to inclusive play mirrors our own. We are proud to partner with them to bring their unique offering to North American parks and playgrounds.”
About Inclusive Play: We aspire to create products that will excite everyone and make it possible for all children to play together. We strive to create unique products that punctuate, not define a play space, embracing the true meaning of inclusion. To do this, we look at playground favourites and the general play experiences enjoyed by many children. We also think about the barriers to play for children who may not normally have access to all equipment. We give those products a makeover – or we start from scratch – and come up with new ideas that all children will love.

We work with park and recreation professionals, schools, landscape architects and youth organizations to create outdoor recreation solutions for every generation. Play and fitness projects should be fun, fast, and easy. These solutions shortcuts are a great first step to guide you in the right direction. We bring together the right corporate, civic and nonprofit partners to build healthy, active communities that make the world a better place for children and families.
