INSPIRATIONAL PLAYGROUND CONCEPT

The Plane and Helicopter

"The Plane and Helicopter themed playground takes children's imaginations up in the clouds. They'll discover the rush of flying or maneuvering the agile helicopter and see how much speed they can get under the propellers as they swing back and forth."

Turning themes, ideas and stories into playgrounds

KOMPAN Design Studio

For more than a decade, we've built tailor-made and highly unique playgrounds that WOW both children and adults. The playgrounds come in a variety of themes and can be customized to your local area and community, or to a specific environment. While they look different, each design is loaded with the play activities we've developed for more than half a century. The play structures are made of highly durable and vandalism-resistant materials that make them last for decades to come. Also, they're safe and certified, like all products we've built over the past 50 years.

Loaded with play activities

Stomach-turning

The fireman’s pole provides another thrilling opportunity, encouraging risk-taking and turn-taking. Children train their arm and core muscles, as well as coordination skills, on the way down.

Wind beneath their wings

A thrilling favorite, the swings help children train their sense of balance, coordination and spatial awareness.

On-boarding

The climbing access points to the plane and helicopter train children’s cross-coordination. The cross-modal movement stimulates cooperation with both the right and left part of the brain, a skill fundamental to tasks off the playground, like reading.

Time to relax

The hammock offers a place to rest and take a break from the high-flying fun.

A cozy place to meet

The tangible details at ground level attract children and allow for more users to take part in play, together. The tic-tac-toe panel offers a place to be together, encouraging communication and turn-taking skills. Children train their understanding of rules and strategic thinking.

This is your captain speaking...

The talk tubes encourage communication and social interaction while evoking curiosity and an understanding of cause and effect.
