What is themed playground equipment?
Themed play is a type of symbolic play. Using a particular theme, children take on roles from real-life situations on the playground when they engage in play, imitating actions observed from their experience. The theme of traffic holds an eternal attraction for young children: vehicles are familiar, yet they take you into the unknown. Freestanding transportation-themed playground equipment for toddlers is an excellent way to generate role-play and stimulate language by introducing the concept of dramatic play. It’s a big world out there, especially if you view it through the eyes of a child. So how nice is it when familiar objects, the playground fire truck, the playground train equipment, or truck, all come down to a comfortable, ‘friendly’ size? Themed play vehicles open the doors to hours of imagination and dramatic play. The open-plan design of the themes, like the Railway Carriage or the Mars Rover, encourages children to play together, share plans, and communicate. It is the first stage in forming a community.
The breadth of design in our range of vehicle-themed playground equipment is vast; from traditional Carriages, Fire Engines to Police Cars, themed playground equipment opens the door to understanding the value of traffic and friendships.

Benefits of Themed Play
Children learn through play. And pretend play is a way for children to practice their world. Whether it’s a police car, railway carriage, or race car, themed play encourages children to engage in unstructured, imaginative play that promotes creativity without caregivers’ instructions which in turn stimulates the child’s language development and cognition. When children engage in themed play, they act out social behaviours, and express themselves while practising vital skill sets. Transportation-themed playground equipment is and always will be a playground favorite for younger children.
