Excavator

Colour ROBINIA UNT. WOOD

Loading Designer
The Excavator is a magnet for construction play. It attracts builders in a wide age span to dig, transport and turn sand. It will absorbe children in play, again and again. When digging, the children need to navigate the handles and shovel. This is a huge task on coordination as well as logical thinking skills. When the sand needs to be re-located, the children will have to use their feet to turn the Excavator up to 360 degrees, to the desired destination. The fine motor and gross motor skill training going into this is considerable. The Excavator can accommodate solitary as well as social play, such as turn-taking and negotiation. These skills can be hard to teach, but children acquire them when they do construction play. These skills are fundamental for the ability to form friendships.

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.
