Slide with Climbing Wall

The Slide with Climbing Wall offers an extra dimension to climbing. With its stair and climbing wall, it attracts children for sliding and offers an alternative route, too. Sliding is fun play and children try it out, again and again. Looping the stair, climbing wall and the slide, apart from being fun, is great cardio training. Children also train their turn-taking skills and empathy when considering others in front or behind them. When children slide, they train their core muscles, sitting upright while sliding down. This stimulates trunk stability, important for avoiding back and neck pains – a growing problem in children due to sedentary lifestyles. Sliding trains the sense of balance, fundamental for other motor skills. Climbing up the ladder or climbing wall, children train cross-coordination, which trains cross-modal perception, important for instance for reading skills.
