The Rope Slalom is a great invitation to play for older children. The bouncy feel will make children come back and try it out again and again. The slick unit bounces back to the child's movements, adding an element of thrill and demanding concentration to every step. Meandering through the vertical ropes of the Rope Slalom, on the bouncy horizontal rope, trains the sense of balance and space. These motor skills are fundamental for cognitive skills such as concentration. The black membranes in the middle are fine for destination making. They can also function as a spot for passing each other. This trains turn-taking skills, training cooperation and negotiation. These are important social skills that help children manage social situations and make friends. The rope is used for seating too adding a bouncy place to meet friends.
