KOMPAN invented a new way of rocking, and we have been rocking the world since 1970
This is where it all began: A red hen on a bright blue spring. The Crazy Hen was the world's first play design to deliver a fun and more functional alternative to the traditional seesaw. And you don’t even need a friend – or a counterweight – to get rocking! Springers and rockers are classic pieces of playground equipment with a strong appeal to all children. Every Springer and rocker is just waiting for a child to unlock its imaginative potential.
Springers are more than just rocking fun. The rhythmic movements help stimulate language development in young children and build their understanding of causality.
Springers and rockers come in a wide variety of designs and materials. Find the perfect addition to your preschool, school, or park playground.

The playground springers that we helped innovate are now a staple of the school playground environment and for good reason. Eye-catching and enticing, springers are designed to immediately grab the attention of the children and draw them. It’s this natural attraction that plays a major role in the effectiveness of any play equipment, which is why springers continue to dominate the playground environment and remain a top choice for schools and community hubs alike.
The innate attractiveness of playground springers isn’t their only advantage though. At Kompan, we strive to produce fun play equipment that balances attractiveness with effective development opportunities. Our springers embody this philosophy by giving children the platform to test themselves and develop multiple skill sets through play.
Physically, springers help develop key gross motor skills surrounding balance and weight management. Whilst most time on a springer is spent sitting, the balancing skills that are practised can quickly translate and help with walking, running and sporting ability both immediately and in the future.
Additionally, the rocking motion that springers provide is extremely unique, helping young minds become accustomed to new sensations and offering a healthy platform for them to adapt and learn how their actions affect the wider world. It’s softer cognitive skills like this that subliminally encourage children to challenge themselves, test their potential and thrive in the face of adversity; habits which play a massive role in future achievement and attainment.
