Kangaroo

Colour MEDIUM GREEN

Loading Designer
The Kangaroo, with its hugely inviting look and function, attracts and supports children’s play. The rocking sensation provides a great movement response. Movement response is among the top play sensations that there are. Apart from the fun, this adds a feeling of control to the child’s play behaviour. The responsive movement also trains the understanding of cause and effect in young children: that actions have an effect on the world. This stimulates logical thinking. Rocking the Kangaroo trains the child’s sense of balance and space as well as leg and arm muscles when holding tight and pushing their feet hard into the foot supports. All of these basic motor and muscle skills help train the child’s bodily cognition, supporting important life skills such as being able to sit still on a chair, concentrate, or navigate traffic securely.

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.

Handhold

Physical

the vertical handgrips ensure a firm grip at different heights, necessary for rocking intensely. This trains hand and arm muscles.

Rocking spring

Physical

response to movements adds to spatial awareness and sense of balance. These are fundamental motor skills that help the child's ability to sit still on a chair which takes a good sense of balance.

Cognitive

trains the understanding of cause and effect: when I move my body, the spring responds with movement.

Foot support

Physical

a good footrest supports intensive rocking. Rocking stimulates the senses of balance and space that are fundamental in managing the world securely. To rock intensely also supports coordination and muscle strength.

Theme

Cognitive

suggests a theme and supports dramatic play, which stimulates language and communication skills.
