Balancing and Climbing
So basic, yet so important
They are among the most basic of playground features, but, in terms of development, they are also among the most vital. A somersault bar or a stepping pod may not look like much, but when children play on them, they are two of the best contributors to child development throughout childhood.
Balance cannot be taught, but it can be developed – it is important in just about every aspect of life. Great athletes are often defined by their sense of balance, a young mother carrying her child automatically counter-balances for safety, an elderly person out shopping relies on it to safely enter and exit the escalator. Balancing also helps train the eyesight and the child’s ability to concentrate. When climbing, a child gets both a sense of achievement and cross-coordination skills that will eventually help them learn to read. Basic equipment that is beautifully simple.

Why Choose Balancing & Climbing Play Equipment?
KOMPAN’s balance and climbing options vary drastically, enabling you to create the perfect playground space for your needs and child ability.
Our range includes natural wooden choices alongside sturdy metal selections, allowing children to get used to a variety of different textures and sensations as they play. Combined with this, the varying appearance options and structures allow playground designers to create varying and engaging spaces which immediately encourage children to use them.
Together with the physical attributes, KOMPAN’s balancing playground equipment for toddlers and children uses intelligent, research-driven design to ensure it offers the best development opportunities possible. Climbing during play offers children a brilliant opportunity to practise their gross motor skills and develop a passion for motion. It’s these habits built at an early age that can help build a healthy lifestyle in the future.
Furthermore, balancing equipment for toddlers often encourages or involves an element of group play, whether it be through friendly races and competition or cooperative activities. The unrestricted social interaction that occurs during this group play is unique to the playground environment and absolutely invaluable to communicative child development. Seeing the non-physical benefits of play sits at the core of what we do at KOMPAN, which is why our playground equipment is specifically designed with this in mind.
