Is all necessary hardware included? Are there instructions?

Absolutely. All hardware and assembly/mounting instructions are included with the products.

How do I clean Playscapes products?

Our products have been designed and manufactured for use in healthcare facilities, where issues of infection control are most stringent. Our items are made with commercial-grade materials and should be included in the same cleaning protocols as furniture and other high-contact surfaces. Frequent cleaning with most commercial disinfectant solutions will not damage or diminish any of our product finishes; but the use of ammonia on acrylic may cause cloudiness.

What’s the product warranty?

Playscapes products are warrantied against defects in material and workmanship for two years from the date of shipment. Click here for the full warranty statement.

Can I return an item?

Play houses, murals, and custom orders are not returnable. Other Playscapes-manufactured items may be returned up to 90 days from the date of shipment, are subject to a 25% restocking charge, and will be inspected.

How will my order be shipped?

What does it mean when an item “ships via freight line”?
