Fun & Challenging
The large Robinia Play Owl provides children with multiple play elements. The multiple ways to reach the top of the owl require the children to be creative in their way of thinking, should they go through the center of the owl, scale the wings or even try scaling the front? Climbing the wings or front of the owl supports muscle strength from fingertips to toes, as well as cross-coordination skills. The multiple ways of scaling the owl, allows children to grow with the playground, by starting with the most accessible access to the top to gradually working their way towards the most difficult accessway. When reaching the top, the children are rewarded with a thrilling slide down the tailfeather. The wide slide allows the children to share the exhilarating slide, supporting cooperation.
