Little Treehouse Slide

The House Slide is a nice themed slide for a toddler area. It will draw toddlers in, with its nice, supportive stair and fun slide. Sliding is hugely fun play and children try it out, again and again. Looping the stair and the slide is great cardio training. Children also train important social skills such as taking turns. When children slide, they train their core muscles, sitting upright while sliding down. This stimulates trunk stability, important for avoiding back and neck pains – a growing problem in children due to sedentary lifestyles. Sliding trains the sense of balance, fundamental for other motor skills. Climbing the ladder and learning to alternate feet, stimulates cross-coordination. This is important for mastering movement and eventually for running. It also trains cross-modal perception, important for instance for reading skills.
