Art on the edge of nature
Dolphins and bugs, ants and bees, snails and ponies, the Robinia Springers take creatures from nature and craft them into an artful, wooden play format. The Springer is a KOMPAN invention, an icon in the playground and with Robinia, it becomes a three-dimensional attraction. Apart from modelling insects, animals and mammals, the warmth and tactility of Robinia translates wonderfully into other favorites adding a new chapter in the Springer story.
The Springer is a ‘go-to’ feature when placed in any playground. Children are drawn to the joy of rockin, an activity that trains the sense of balance and spatial awareness – senses that ultimately help the child to develop concentration and to navigate spaces safely. The Robinia Springers fall into two categories; those based on creatures which are largely solo experiences, and the springer version of the seesaw. Both encourage the children to share, one in taking turns and the other in cooperation.
