Building machines are a classic on the playground. This engineering vehicle is designed to dig dust and rubble and load it onto trucks in the young child’s imagination. However, the design is subtle enough to be any kind of vehicle in the child’s mind. Flexibility is a cornerstone in young children’s approach to play. The function of the Front Loader is to offer a great ride, well-supported by a footrest and handhold. Young children enjoy the motion and the vestibular stimulation this ride provides, supporting their developing sense of balance.
