The Shop @ Playful Acre: Our Why

The Shop @ Playful Acre

We love to be outside.

This is why we created this shop, which carries everything from books to binoculars, and tents to trail food. We want you to have the equipment and information you need to get out and explore.

Whether your passion is hiking, biking or birding—we love it all. Our staff has years of experience in the outdoors, so we can provide you with tips on where to go and what gear will work best for your next adventure.

Our goal is always to help people fall in love with the outdoors as much as we did!

We're passionate about inspiring people to be outside.

You probably already know that we're passionate about inspiring people to get outside and explore the natural world. But we also understand that a lot of people may not have grown up with access to outdoor adventures, or haven’t had the opportunity to learn how to explore them responsibly and safely. That's why we are proud to offer a variety of services, from educational guides on our website, to workshops and events at our brick-and-mortar location in Cincinnati.


We believe that our education programs are necessary for a balanced life.

We believe you should be able to learn at your own pace, and in the order that suits your learning style. We believe that knowledge is not a commodity, and we try to keep our prices as low as possible. We also believe that learning should be fun! And because we enjoy having a laugh, we sometimes include jokes or fun facts in our courses!

We believe in our mission.

We believe in our mission.

It's to inspire and support families to get outside. It's to educate people about the value of being outside. It's to help preserve outdoor spaces around the world, particularly those in or near urban areas. It's to help people find the joy of being outside in their everyday lives, and it's about preserving that magic for future generations.

You can get inspiring stickers, journals and more from our shop.

At the shop, you can find a wide range of products that will help you and everyone else you know get started on this exciting adventure. You'll find stickers, journals, and a ton of other things that are just waiting to help inspire your next great act. If you're looking for gifts for friends and family, why not give them something that will encourage their own adventurous spirit?

Your support makes a difference!

Supporting the programs that brought you here is another way of giving back in a very tangible way, and helping to ensure that our mission to spark creative adventure and discovery in visitors remains strong. Your purchase goes to support our family and our education programs and will make a difference in the lives of children around the world.
