Dolphin, Double

Rocking on the Double Dolphin is a wildly attractive playground activity that children will return to again and again. Children are able to control the play by moving their bodies to make the Dolphin rock. They will feel delighted to have the horse respond to their movements. The two sides support the seated position, and the foot and hand holds provide a stable point to stem feet and hands from, to create the movement. There is room enough for two. This supports cooperation and positive social relations. Rocking on the Double Dolphin is also good for physical and cognitive development. When children begin to learn the connections between their bodies and their movements, they begin to make cognitive connections to a range of body movements and sensations. The dolphin theme will spur dramatic play, stimulating language development.
