‘Smart’ equipment, spray park highlight newly renovated area
A recreation center in Long Island expresses excitement over their nearly completed playground renovations which will centrally feature the KOMPAN Ugly Duckling and Tinderbox "smart" castle. "This new playground... will greatly enhance our Recreation Center and provide countless hours of enjoyment for our youngest residents,” says the town's mayor.
The Hans Christian Anderson fairytale inspired castle features several access points, a stairway, a challenging climbing wall, a corkscrew pole, and a slide. The colorful structure includes numerous activities including Ugly Duckling and Little Mermaid themed moveable pieces, and small shelters and benches beneath. Excitement is expressed at the castle's Smart Play option, a QR code offering access to matching stories and activities available through the KOMPAN Play Gate app. Click the link below to read more about how the castle design encourages social development through role play, physical development through active play, and language development through the accompanying stories in the app.
