How can you design a playground with intelligence? It's a combination of choosing visually-appealing equipment that grabs a child's attention and helps them improve essential motor and life skills, all in the background of their play. Balancing playground equipment "strikes this balance" perfectly for children of all ages; it's an excellent solution for toddlers and older children alike.

Benefits of Climbing and Balancing Playground Equipment
Balance is a stability skill that isn't taught, but rather, developed through repetition. Balance is vital in practically every aspect of life. We see it in a great athlete defined by their superior sense of balance, a parent carrying their child counter-balances for safety, and an older person relies on it to safely move about their environment, like using an escalator. Balancing also helps train the eyesight and a child's ability to concentrate. When climbing, a child improves both their sense of achievement and cross-coordination skills, factors that eventually help them learn to read.
Balancing playground equipment often encourages or involves an element of group play, whether through a competitive race or friendly cooperative activities. The unrestricted social interaction during this group play is unique to the playground environment and an invaluable step in child development. Seeing the non-physical benefits of play sits at the core of what we do at KOMPAN, which is why our playground equipment is specifically designed with this in mind.
Together with its physical attributes, our balancing playground equipment for toddlers and children uses intelligent, research-driven design to ensure it offers the best development opportunities. Climbing during play allows children to practice their gross motor skills and grow their passion for physical movement. When healthy habits are built at an early age, it can lead to a healthy lifestyle throughout adulthood.
