What better way of getting from one playground favourite to another than by bouncing? Being ‘Tigger’ for a moment is a terrific fun-filled way of improving motor skills such as rhythm, balance and proprioception - the way your nervous system relays information of every movement and adjusts accordingly. A sort of inbuilt gyro system.
The Jumpers are amongst the most anonymous of playground features, like silent rubber mats they hide until pounced on. Once spotted they become an irresistible attraction - the children looking like bunnies hopping in meadow. Square or circular, they come different sizes, and can be combined to create a time-absorbing jumping game. In planning a playground the Jumpers are a useful tool in ‘gluing’ themes together, linking one aspect to another like a conjunction.
