Short Nose Truck

Colour ROBINIA RED

The Short Nose Truck is a great play attraction. With its appealing design and recognizable theme, it ignites dramatic play, fun for younger children. The variety of climb and crawl activities attracts and ensures physical activity that trains important motor skills and major muscles. We know from our KOMPAN Play Institute studies, that manipulative play elements increase the play retention and the dramatic play in very young children. This supports language skills and communication, helping children to understand the world, and to be understood by the surroundings. The variety of manipulative and fun physical activities support dramatic play scenarios, e.g. the gear shift and steering wheel add to the feeling of driving the appealing Short Nose Truck. Dramatic play is the favorite play type for younger children. Apart from building an understanding of the world, dramatic play also trains language and communication skills intensely. The spaciousness and low height of the truck makes it easily accessible.

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.
