The fun thrill of rocking!
We all know and love the seesaw. It’s a classic piece of commercial playground equipment. And what's better than rocking by yourself? Rocking together with a friend!
KOMPAN's seesaws add a social dimension to the joy of rocking. Kids can rock together to develop social skills, either in pairs or in larger groups.
Rocking on a seesaw trains children's muscles, motor skills, balance and coordination.
The spacious design and sturdy back and foot support in many of KOMPAN's inclusive seesaws allow many children of all abilities to play together. Thrill-seekers can securely stand on the middle platform and sense the risk and movement of the others. There's enough room for parents and carers too!
Take a ride with farm animals from the fairytale The Ugly Duckling by Hans Christian Andersen. A large number of players can find space to join the trip on this raft. Safely seated at both ends with hands and feet positioned on secure bars, the youngest will enjoy a good rocking.
The more experienced player can sit, lie or stand on the centre plate, from where they can influence the ride considerably.
All involved players will have to cooperate, to find out how to make the ride a success for all. The soothing movement makes one want to sing and enjoy the rhythm.
Colourful bees and cute shapes rocking hugely motivate children to join in play, rocking together. The spacious design and sturdy back and foot support allow for many children of all abilities playing together. The risk seekers can stand on the middle platform securely, sensing the movement of the others. The spacious platform also allows for socializing and children lying or sitting.
There is room enough for care givers, too. The seats at the end are big enough for older children as well as adults. The fun thrill of rocking, individually, in small or in big groups, will make children return for more.
Rocking on the home seesaw trains the children's muscles and motor skills, their balance and coordination. The spaciousness of the seesaw supports development of social-emotional skills, e.g. cooperation, consideration and turn-taking. Toddlers experience cause-and-effect understanding.
This item of playground equipment is a cut-above the traditional seesaw. The double spring construction not only allows for a more comfortable ride but also for a higher level of safety. If a child should jump off in the middle of a ride, the special strong spring stops the child on the other end from hitting the ground with a bump. In addition, the stabiliser in the middle stops the seesaw from rocking from side to side, as can happen on many older types of seesaw.
The Hopper with its round bodies and vibrant colours invites children to try out the rocking experience. Due to the many body positions and play possibilities invited through the design, children will play for a long time and come back again and again.
The platform in the middle makes a nice entrance point for sitting, lying or standing while rocking the others. Or, while being rocked by them. The rounded seats and foot- and handholds allow children to give it a good go. Rocking on the Hopper is a different seesaw experiences, as the springs allows for users of different weights and abilities to play and cooperate.
Seesaws are great for cooperative play: the child needs to consider the rhythm of the other players' movement to make seesawing work. This is a great trainer of cooperation and consideration. Furthermore, children with e.g. autism get a chance for social play in a secure framework.
This extra back support and footrest are practical additions for children with poor coordination or sense of balance. These simple additions can be attached to one or both ends of the Multi Seesaw.
Octopus is one of the mysterious inhabitants of the seven seas. Alone, in pairs or with co-riders standing on octopus' head, the ride on this seesaw is a great challenge for balance and coordination. At each end there is seating for two players opposite to each other. With eye-to-eye contact, they can coordinate their efforts and experiment with balance and speed. The centre position is meant for standing or crouching and offers a number of handholds, to secure the action, thus offering a safe position, but still great challenge for the more capable players.
The Blazer is a distant relative of the seesaw, but with an Easy Rider twist. The movement, rhythm and melody of the Blazer changes according to the number of riders and their positions. There is room for 1, 2, 3 and more in the middle. Every move counts on the Blazer as children learn how to make it change its motion.
