The Oasis Creator is incredibly engaging sand play unit that will having children playing hours and hours. The crane is worked horizontally as well as vertically either by turning the grey plate or pulling the chain. The sand bucket will go up or down when pulling the chain and will stay put when the chain is let go. This in addition to providing fascinating sand play, is a great training of children's logical thinking skills. The negotiation and cooperation of moving the sand helps develops social-emotional skills. The sand table's sieve and tube lead sand away, training young children's understanding of object permanence: that things can still exist when out of sight. The sand wheel and showel adds a quieter sand play corner. The platforms are open and can be accessed in multiple ways, allowing for all users to play.
