Junior Spica

Colour RED

The large rotating movement of the Junior Spica attracts toddlers. The low seat invites both seated and standing use of the Junior Spica, thus supporting different body positions through its use. This makes it a versatile piece, which can be used alone or with a friend, seated or standing, pushing or pulling. The Junior Spica is a playground favourite again and again. Placed two or three together, the Junior Spicas motivate social play, also between children who want to avoid too much physical contact. The toddler age is when children gain the ability to form friendships, and the Junior Spica supports shared experiences within play. The rotation trains the child’s sense of balance and space, which is crucial for body awareness and the control of body movements. This is fundamental to navigating the world confidently.

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.
