Double Springer, Two Seats

The Double Springer is a whimsical and attractive springer for two. It attracts players again and again, thanks to the combined play invitation for movement and social interaction. The attraction of rocking together is very much based in the movement response and the opportunity for friendly rough-and-tumble play with a friend. The carved handholds and inclined foot supports invite a seated position with a low handhold. This makes rocking together a fun challenge. Furthermore the arm and leg muscles get ample use and training. It trains the sense of rhythm and the coordination. These are crucial motor skills that help children navigate the world securely, e.g. in the street when estimating time, movement and objects. The social dimension and the cooperation with friends train social-emotional life skills such as turn- taking and cooperation. Empathy is trained as well, as players consider others’ limits and limitations.
