When my brother Kai and I were looking online for a nice children’s slide for the daughter of a close friend,
we couldn’t find anything that appealed to us in terms of material, design and style. Almost every slide that
we came across was made from cheap plastic and was more intended for outdoor use.
However, we really wanted to give Mia a beautiful children’s slide that she could play with in her room on rainy days.
As, on the one hand, we believe that a plastic slide is not really suitable for a well designed children’s room and,
on the other hand, children are surrounded by too many plastic toys anyway, the slide needed to be made from sustainable wood.
In the end, we found the first and only wooden children’s slide in a large Swedish furniture shop.
The quality was certainly good but there was still room for improvement regarding the design. In short – the right slide simply didn’t exist!
So what do you do when you can’t find the right product?
That’s right; you attempt to create one yourself. In our case, however,
we needed assistance as we had little previous experience in product design or development.
Therefore, we were delighted to be able to gain the support of the renowned product designer,
Ralf Scheel, who was father to a young daughter himself. Ralf then started work based on the following parameters.
The result of this work, the Jupiduu children’s slide, went way beyond our expectations.
Ralf created a design that combined aesthetics, functionality and fun in an unprecedented manner.
In our view, this makes the Jupiduu children’s slide a stylish accessory for every modern kid’s room and
we hope that you will be pleased with our products and service.
In July 2014, we were able to welcome a very special customer.
The young heir to the British throne, Prince George, received a ‘Blue Whale’ slide for his 1st birthday
(as reported on CNN, CNN Money and CBC among others). We still feel honoured to have received this order and
we are proud to give all childen the opportunity to feel like little kings and queens.
