Swing, 8 ft H, 1 Shell Seat
Of all the play activities, the bird’s nest swing is the favorite: children love it, as it can be done individually and together. It is a great facilitator of fun rough-and-tumble play. The shell nest seat is shallow and easy to enter and so welcomes multiple users of all abilities and most ages. This makes the swing a thrilling common experience, day after day, for hours and hours. Swinging, apart from being tremendous fun, trains the children’s ABCs: agility, balance and coordination, as well as their spatial awareness. These motor skills are crucial to being able to judge distance and navigate traffic safely. Swings allow for standing sitting, lying – and even jumping off. All these activities train the arm, leg and core muscles. Jumping off builds bone density – the majority of which is built up during the first years of life. Finally, this swing supports social skills such as taking turns and cooperation.
