Providing the 'WOW' factor the bouncing Sputnik is a fabulous and wild play experience. Its responsive movements will thrill children again and again. The den-like Sputnik is accessed via its steep supportive ropes. This climb encourages muscle use as well as motor skills: children need to cling on tightly to the ropes with their hands and arms, and they need to adjust their feet to the constant movement of all the children in the Sputnik. This helps train agility, balance and coordination as well as timing. These are important skills for building confidence in movement and will support e.g. the ability to judge traffic safety. As the den bounces and moves groups of children can sit, stand, lye and bounce. This supports social interaction and the ability to judge the awareness of others around. The den is fun and exciting enough to attract older children – or even parents!
