The Buddy Bench concept originated with Christian Bucks as a way to bring kids together to get to know each other and make new friends. Christian's idea began with fundraising for a park bench. Buddy Benches are a wonderful addition to any playground or school yard. The Buddy Bench is considered a “Friendship Bench” that helps children socialize and provides an area that children can go to if they are feeling lonely or left out on the playground. This signals other children that they would like to be included. A Buddy Bench on the playground is highly favored by parents, children and educators. This 4-foot engraved buddy bench is ideal for any location that would benefit from its comfortable, spacious seating. One line of engraving is included and engraving is available with or without epoxy full colors at no extra charge. Engraved Logos are also available.

To save weight and shipping costs this 4 inches Buddy Bench uses slightly thinner boards, 1 1/4 inches thick x 5 inches wide compared to 1 1/2inches x 5 1/2 inches boards on a Traditional Bench.
