Spica 1

Colour LIME

Loading Designer
The quirky shapes, toothy top and triangle platform invite the curious 6-12 year olds to investigate the Spica. The rotation point of the Spica is at the centre and it takes exploration and problem solving to master how to spin. The curved pole can be held on to at any position and the child will figure out that leaning in to the pole will increase the spinning speed and leaning out will decrease the speed. Mastering the rotation element stimulates the cognitive skills of the child, in particular the logical thinking. The agility, balance and coordination skills are challenged as the Spica invites different body positions when spinning. The triangular shape of the seat allows room for up to three children, stimulating the social skills of cooperation and turn-taking.

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 thus gives the play item holding power. Play value can be described very precisely in developmental terms, looking into the human physical, cognitive, social and emotional developmental stages.
