Pollux

Colour LIME

With its spinning, swaying angles and shapes, POLLUX attracts thrilling balance play in 6-15 year olds. The inclined spinners invite smaller or bigger groups to spin until they get dizzy - a favourite activity of school-age children and will attract them for a long time, again and again. The overhead rocking activity and the swaying ropes with UFO discs support the development of upper body strength and cooperation with peers, it is also great fun for those seated on top being rocked. The Rocking Tube makes a challenging climb to the triangle plates. The wide variety of spin, climb, sway and hang activities train the child's coordination and sense of balance, which are important motor skills. The meeting points encourage cooperation and turn-taking, skills easily learned in play.

Play Value

Play value is the value gained from play, the value that makes the child 'want' or developmentally 'need' to undertake the activity and thus gives the play item holding power. Play value can be described very precisely in developmental terms, looking into the human physical, cognitive, social and emotional developmental stages.
