Themed playground equipment: accelerating their imaginations
Themed play is a type of symbolic play using a particular theme. Children have the ability to take on roles from real-life situations on the playground when they engage in play, imitating actions observed from their experience.
Young children are fascinated with themes involving cars and driving. Vehicles are familiar, yet the destination is unknown and ever-changing. Transportation-themed playground equipment for toddlers is an excellent way to drive role-play and accelerate language by introducing the concept of dramatic play. It’s a big world out there, especially when looking through the eyes of child. Consider how nice it is when the behemoths of the road are at a approachable size. The playground fire truck, playground tractor, and playground train are no longer wonders to gawk at, now they're waiting for the kids to take the wheel! The open-plan design of the themes, like the Railway Carriage or the Mars Rover, encourages children to play, communicate, and imagine together. It's the first gear of forming a community.
With traditional carriages, fire engines and police cars, our wide range of themed playground equipment opens the door to hours of imaginative, dramatic play and gives them the keys to new friendships, one drive at a time.

The Benefits of Themed Play:
Children learn through play, and pretend play is a way for children to practice their world. Whether it's behind the wheel of a playground fire truck, race car, or police cruiser, themed play encourages children to engage in unstructured, imaginative play that promotes creativity. There are no caregiver instructions; a freedom that stimulates a child’s language development and cognition. When children engage in themed play, they act out social behaviours, and express themselves while practicing vital skill sets. Transportation-themed playground equipment is and will always be a playground favorite for younger children.
