Balance Posts with Rope

The Balance Posts with Rope appeal to children immediately. When walking or jumping from pole to pole, children train their proprioception and sense of balance, both skills are fundamental in confidently managing the body in its surroundings. This is important for instance when navigating street traffic safely, but it also plays an important role for children's self confidence. The support rope can be used by those less confident in their balancing skills. Navigating across the Balance Poles with friends teaches children how to take turns. These are important social-emotional skills that are basic to the ability to form friendship and relate to peers. All in all, so much more than play.
