Robinia Themed Play


A matter of perspective 

Themed play is the ticket to exploring and understanding life. Using familiar connotations children are given the opportunity to place themselves in daily situations; filling the car with petrol, steering the boat, routine procedures somehow given age-relevant significance, enabling the child to find its own place in the world. It is the little things that trigger imaginations, the addition of a credit card slot on the petrol pump, helps encourage organisational skills. 

In addition, the presence of an owl, a parrot or an iguana, breaks open new thought processes and by sharing these thoughts and ideas stimulates language and the ability to communicate.

Robinia is the preferred material for KOMPAN’s nature products. Known as Black Locust in its native USA, it is now an intercontinental plant, having first been introduced to Europe just over four centuries ago.

 

The Robinia tree itself is a triumph of nature. As a tree, at every level it performs. It grows in poor soils, it feeds nitrogen into the earth encouraging other plants, it flowers to be the source of Acadia honey, its leaves breathe out Co2. It adapts well in urban areas, gracing many boulevards and streets. When cut as timber, the stump regenerates and grows back quickly. It is highly sustainable. The timber is fine-grained, strong and resilient; it naturally repels fungi and bugs - the perfect material for long-lasting play features.
