Sound is an evocative sense that is integral to the development of children. Richter Spielgeräte designs play equipment that encourages children to make and interact with sound, creating fun and a sense of belonging.
Richter Spielgeräte is a German-based company that has been creating exciting and innovative playspaces worldwide for over 50 years.
Richter’s sound and acoustic elements create surprise and joy for children. With a little physical effort, children can experience the relation between cause and effect and are rewarded with a joyful sound.
Richter has an extensive range of sound play equipment that can be suited for playspaces large and small. Below are just some of the options available:
Wind Pipes and Dance Chimes | A simple and unique piece of ground equipment that encourages motor skills by the child having to use their whole body to create a sequence of notes.
Sound Cushions | An attractive activity for all ages that creates tones when the cushions are hopped on or run over. Ground anchors allow for tones to be changed and creates a fun and amusing environment.
Musical Path | A rubber belt that runs over three movable timbers, fixed to the ground at either end. The movement encourages cooperative play and the bells mounted under the beams create enjoyable acoustic accompaniment.
Sound Roller | Individual rollers that can be turned to generative different sounds.
Wind Pumps | Three wooden columns with pump levers that can be raised and lowered, producing air pressure that creates different sounds. Fun for all ages, including the elderly.
Bell Tower | An attractive feature for playspaces that designates a special area and creates a range of sounds. Can even be used as therapy equipment.
Phones | Children can hear each other’s voices 15m apart, creating great fun. Can be used to educate about soundwaves.
Ferraphone | Stainless steel sheets that can be hit with a beater to create a lively range of sounds.
Singing Stones | By placing one’s head into the stone’s hollow and humming, resonance occurs creating a pleasant vibration throughout the body. Fun for parks, museums, education institutes and therapy gardens.
Triangles | A learning experience for children and adults alike, teaching them about sound.
Tubular Chimes | A large structure that creates the perfect sound. Ideal for public spaces, museums and parks.
