Octopus Seesaw

Colour LIGHT BLUE

Loading Designer
The Octopus seesaw helps to motivate children to join in play, so they are rocking together. The cartoonish design attracts children and makes them want to play. The sturdy hand and foot supports allow for mild or wild rocking, depending on the child's energy level. The spring base makes it possible for a range of ages to rock together. The octopus head in the middle supports an upright seat and holding tight while being rocked. This allows for more socializing and more children. There is room enough for a care giver, too. The seats at the end are big enough for older children as well as adults. The fun thrill of rocking, individually or in pairs or groups, will make children want to play for longer. Rocking on the Octopus seesaw trains the children's muscles and motor skills,.e.g. balance and coordination. The seesaw supports development of social-emotional skills, e.g. cooperation, consideration and turn-taking.

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.
