Little Explorers – A World of Challenge and ExcitementWednesday, 15th August 2012 12:00 am
Welcome to a world of challenge and excitement where Little Explorers can discover vibrant colours, experience movement, and let their imaginations run wild.
Playdale’s new, exciting modular range, ‘Little Explorers’, is available in 11 standard configurations which have been tailored for toddlers, offering boundless activities.
Every piece has been designed to allow children the freedom to open their minds and create their own magic and fantasy. The possibilities are endless and are only limited by their imaginations.
The new range has been developed following extensive research with child psychologists to create climbing and activity units that help nurture and enhance children’s physical and cognitive development.
Each unit features a mixture of climbing, crawling, imaginative play and role play; providing varied levels of difficulty and challenges for the budding explorers to learn and grow.
The ‘Little Explorers’ have been manufactured to coincide with the new guidelines that nurseries adhere to, therefore every piece of the equipment has been designed to challenge, develop and inspire.
Some of the features include:
- interactive Play Panels and steering wheel;
- a Shop Counter with posting holes;
- see-through coloured panels that change their perceptions of the world;
- a variety of entrance points that present a range of challenges;
- Rope Bridges, Ladders, Ramps, Net Bridges, Slides, Tunnels and Swing Bar, all designed to allow children to progress and develop their physical skills;
- a Ball Store for practicality and extra storage space.
Richard Stevens, Design Engineer at Playdale, said: “This was an exciting project to work on as it took us back to the fundamentals of how children grow and learn. The challenge was to picture how this age group perceives the world and provide an environment in which they can develop. Through research and testing we have created a product that provides diverse physical challenges, whilst allowing imaginations and creativity to run free.”
