Tractor

Color ROBINIA RED

The Tractor will attract younger children with its recognizable theme again and again. The theme spurs dramatic play in both younger and older children. Dramatic play is supported by the manipulative play elements: gear shift, steering wheel, and funnel. Dramatic play builds communication, language, and social skills. Children learn how to express themselves and how to be understood by friends and surroundings. The crawl-through tunnel invites activity and stimulates motor skills such as cross-coordination. Cross-coordination enhances children’s ability to use both sides of the brain, supporting the internal structures enabling reading and thinking. The children also train cross-coordination when climbing to the thrilling reward: a stomach-tickling ride down the slide. Sliding stimulates balance, which is fundamental for mastering any physical activity. When deciding who to go next, children develop empathy and turn-taking skills. The tractor is a great facilitator for social, dramatic, and physical play.

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.
