Sliding activates children’s trunk stability and their sense of balance and space. These are important motor skills, fundamental for physic confidence.
The Turbo Challenge invites children with its rich choice of wilder and milder play for managing the world confidently. The Turbo Challenge is great physical and social stimulation: Children cooperate and turn-take while spinning, hanging by legs or arms. This trains the upper body muscles, proprioception and spatial awareness, important for confidently navigating the world.
The Hanging Pod is a swaying shelter at ground level and wildly popular among children. The two Hanging Pods invite swaying meetings for all. The constant swaying adds to the fun factor – and it trains social-emotional skills such as turn-taking and empathy.
The elevated level play space creates a fine watch-out point, and running the coromesh is thrilling, as the child can experience height thanks to the transparency.
The Funnel Net trains cross-coordination and muscles when climbing up or down.
The vividly spinning Spica stimulates the sense of balance and social skills such as cooperation and turn-taking. The triangular seat shape invites up to 3 children standing. The Spica trains thinking skills and body awareness - it spins faster when the child holds the body close to the pole and slower when the child lean out.
The Sturdy Drops make for an extremely appealing, swaying break. Sitting, hanging or leaning on the drop is a calming movement, which adds to a social understanding and gives a feeling of connectedness to other players as the movements of the climbers in the big cloud above are replicated into the drops.
The Super Top gives the impression of a large carousel. It has a sun sail integrated as a part of the structure and is designed with activities suited for older children.
At the top, an enclosed area with lots of play activities is accessed through the central net tunnel. The way down and out is a lot of fun via the tunnel slide.
Underneath, we have a lot of dynamic play elements such as eight swaying drops, two sets of turbo challenges, two sliding poles, and three hanging pods.
