Racer

Colour RED

Loading Designer
The Racer, with it’s whimsical, rodeo appearance attracts toddlers for a shorter or longer ride, again and again. Apart from its appealing shapes, the Racer offers tactile variation with its rubber hand holds and smooth body. Tactile richness is a main motivator, especially in younger children. It supports their understanding of material characteristics such as weight, texture, temperature and flexibility. The slightly sloped seat provides a seating destination which ensures hours, years and decades of fun for many generations. The soothing, rocking movement of the Racer trains the sense of balance and spatial awareness. These are both crucial for body confidence, e.g. fall prevention. A well developed sense of balance is fundamental for the ability to sit still and concentrate. The Racer offers children more than just a 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 because of this children will want to return to the item over and over again. Play value can be described very precisely in developmental terms, looking into the human physical, cognitive, social and emotional developmental stages.

Handhold

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.

Rocking spring

Physical
