WOW! Once they try it, children don’t want to stop: the sensation of combined rotation and rocking is so much fun. It is great, challenging balance and proprioception training for older children to manage the rotating rocker. The distance to the ground makes it a pretty conscious choice whether you think you can stay on the Wacky Spinner once it starts rotating and rocking. But for less skilled balancers, there is a possibility to sit, or lie, on the slightly curved rubbery surface. More children can be seated back to back, or stand close together and rotate and rock. This encourages cooperation and turn-taking. When placed more together, the Wacky Spinners invite games with rules, e.g. who can stay the longest. Knowing how to position your body to stay on the Wacky Spinner trains movement planning which is important for instance in sports.

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.

Rubbery, curved surface

Physical

the curved platform makes balancing more difficult when the feet are placed in the middle, and easier when they are intuitively placed along the sides.

Social-Emotional

the rubbery feel adds skid-resistance and a comfortable, steady grip.

Tilted, enclosed ball-bearing

Physical

the movement from the tilted ball-bearing trains balance and proprioception, both important fundaments for movement control.

Social-Emotional

the challenge of balancing on a rotating, tilted platform supports self confidence and risk taking skills.
