Loading Designer
The classic Albatross seesaw motivates children to join in play, rocking together. The whimsical design, a KOMPAN classic, attracts children. The sturdy hand and foot support allow for mild and wild rocking. The spring base makes it possible for different ages, even adult and children, to rock together. Risk seekers can stand on the middle platform, sensing the movement of the others. The platform also allows for socializing, lying or sitting. There is room enough for a caregiver, too. The seats at the end are big enough for older children as well as adults. The fun thrill of rocking, individually, or in pairs or groups, will make children play for longer. Rocking on the Albatross trains the children's muscles and motor skills,.e.g. balance and coordination. The Albatross supports development of social-emotional skills as well, like cooperation, consideration and taking turns.

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.
