Pony

Colour ROBINIA UNT. WOOD

Loading Designer
The Pony with its lovely, chunky seat attracts toddlers for a shorter or longer ride, again and again. Apart from its appealing shapes, the Pony offers tactile variation with its rubber hand holds and smooth, wooden body. Tactile richness is a main motivator, especially in younger children. It supports their under-standing of material characteristics such as weight, smoothness, temperature and flexibility. This is important in for instance risk management. The spring ensures hours, years and decades of fun. The soothing, rocking movement of the Pony trains the sense of balance and the spatial awareness. These are both crucial for body confidence, e.g. in avoiding falling. A well-developed sense of balance is fundamental for the ability to sit still and concentrate. The Pony offers children much more than a mere fun ride.

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 possibility to hold onto more areas of the handhold ensures a good grip, necessary for rocking intensely. This trains hand and arm muscles.

Foot support

Physical

the possibility of footrest supports intensive rocking. Rocking stimulates the senses of balance and space that are fundamental in managing the world securely.

Double seating option

Social-Emotional

the possibility of two rocking together supports cooperation skills. Furthermore, the physical contact with others is great for the well-being of children, measurable in lower cortisol (stress hormone) levels.

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.
