A Balancing Act
Balancing and Climbing
So basic, yet so important
Balancing playground equipment are among the most basic playground features, but in terms of development, they are also among the most vital. A somersault bar or a stepping pod may not look like much, but when children play on them, they are two of the best contributors to child development throughout childhood.
Intelligent playground equipment design combines effective equipment choices with enticing appearances, grabbing the children's attention whilst passively improving essential motor or life skills. Playground climbing equipment strikes this balance perfectly while offering an excellent solution for early years environments, toddlers and older children alike.

Benefits of Climbing and Balancing Equipment
Balance is a stability skill that cannot be taught, but it can be developed. Balance is vital in just about every aspect of life. Great athletes are often defined by their sense of balance; a young mother carrying her child counter-balances for safety, and an older person out shopping relies on it to safely enter and exit the escalator. Balancing also helps train the eyesight and the child's ability to concentrate. When climbing, a child gets both a sense of achievement and cross-coordination skills that will eventually help them learn to read.
Furthermore, balancing equipment for toddlers often encourages or involves an element of group play, whether through tight races and competitions or friendly cooperative activities. The unrestricted social interaction during this group play is unique to the playground environment and invaluable to communicative child development. Seeing the non-physical benefits of play sits at the core of what we do at KOMPAN, which is why our playground equipment is specifically designed with this in mind.
Together with the physical attributes, our balancing playground equipment for toddlers and children uses intelligent, research-driven design to ensure it offers the best development opportunities. Climbing during play allows children to practise their gross motor skills and develop a passion for motion. These habits built at an early age can help build a healthy lifestyle in the future.

Our range of early years balancing equipment includes natural wooden choices alongside sturdy metal selections, allowing children to get used to various textures and sensations as they play.
