Tractor with Slide

The Tractor is an appealing attractor for dramatic and physical play for younger children. The rich variety of climb, crawl and slide activities attracts and ensures physical activity that trains important motor skills and major muscles. On the platform, a gear shift, a steering wheel and side mirrors add to the feeling of driving a beastly big Tractor. On ground level, multiple varied climbs up and crawls through holes to under the platform ensures ample encouragement to climb and crawl. This trains cross-body coordination which builds body confidence and ultimately stimulate the cross-modal perception which adds to supports to for instance reading skills. Dramatic play is the favorite play type for younger children. Apart from building an understanding of the world, dramatic play also trains language and communication skills intensely. In the case of the Tractor, storytelling themes of farming, driving and building will be put to play.
