Plastic Play Pen Balls

Plastic Play Pen ***

Didn't find your answer?

Multicoloured Play Pen Balls to be precise, the sort you get in children’s playpens. Where can you get them from? The only place I have ever see them was in Toys R Us and they came in boxes/bags of about 50. Argos do them, but again in small quantities. My Googles have not been too useful.
 
I want 500 for a management development programme/exercise I’m doing with several groups of first time managers working for a first tier aircraft unit supplier.

Does anyone know a cheap supplier?

Hi Garry

I think this is what you are looking for:

http://www.softset.co.uk/  they sell ball ponds and the *** to go in them.

http://www.playtec.co.uk/frames_infant_to_pre.shtml

http://www.special-needs-kids.co.uk/Toys-soft-play.htm

These are just three of the companies I found doing a search for "soft play" on google.

Hope this helps.

Jenny

It's for teaching new production managers and Cell Leaders how to conduct Design of Experiment (DOE) processes and then how to record the results under a 5S system: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/5S_(methodology) Hardly Martian. Thanks Jenny

Not sure if you have a Home Bargains or a B&M Store, I got some for a ball pool and they were really cheap

Hi Gary, My wife & I used to run an indoor adventure playground, and when we close the business we threw out over 10,000 of the things (it was a small put of 12x20 feet). I still have about 1000 if that helps - but getting them to you may be a challenge (they are the full size *** - the "play" ones are slightly smaller!) - we are talking 3 large bin bags...

You can order these by the 500 from any of the "sofyplay" providers. Another option is to go to a local adventure play centre and ask to buy some from their pit - as they do replace/ topup on a regular basis - plus they wont miss 500!

Thanks for this Mike - I've gone ahead and ordered the *** now. I'm not sure if the process would work with the bigger ***?

Thanks for the offer Mike, really appreciated.

I used to run an exercise that had similiarities to yours where we used different coloured 6mm BBs!

Maybe this is my problem: I don't have big enough ***!

Hi Garry, you can get these in 200, 250, 300 mmm diameters - the "toy" ones tend to be smaller and thinner plastic than the "pro" versions used in play centres.

good luck with your exercise

Hi Garry,

If your order falls through I have just seen some in a (generally) cheapy shop in North Yorkshire - 100 for £5.99. They appaeard to have a couple of thousand.

Regards,

Paul
