Canadian playground manufacturer Blue Imp celebrates 100 years by giving away products valued at more than $30K

MEDICINE HAT, AB, May 9, 2017 /CNW/ - While Canada marks 150, Canada's own playground manufacturer—Blue Imp Recreational Products—is proud to be celebrating 100 years of success. The fourth-generation family-owned company is observing this major milestone by giving away commercial playground equipment with a total retail value of more than $30,000.

"Very few companies reach this milestone so we really want to mark the occasion," says company executive Verna Scott. "We have completely re-imagined four iconic Blue Imp playground pieces for our new Centennial Series and we want to give them away! We are inviting Canadians to take part in our Centennial Giveaway for a chance to win one of these exciting products for their school or community. It's all about celebrating 100 years of success and sharing the fun."

First up for grabs is the all-new Ocean Wave, a freestanding spinner for ages 5-12 valued at more than $8,500. The Ocean Wave delivers the spinning thrills kids love, features dynamic net components and offers varied play for varied abilities. Dubbed "SPIN to WIN", the contest to win an Ocean Wave runs until May 31 and is open to entities across Canada (except Quebec) who provide playground equipment for public use: schools, municipalities, community associations, service organizations, campgrounds and more. Contest details can be found at or on the Blue Imp Facebook page.

Upcoming contests in the year-long Centennial Giveaway will give organizations across Canada a chance to win even more products from Blue Imp's Centennial Series, including the Giant Stride, ImpMobile and the iconic Elephant Climb. Details on the series can be found at
