For younger children, there are many benefits to playing outdoors.
The UK Physical activity advice for children includes outdoor play.
Playing outdoors improves sleep.
It allows the children to have fun through the exploration.
They learn coordination and balance.
They burn more energy.
Outdoor play promotes a healthy lifestyle from a young age.
They make friends.
This creates a positive impact on both the children and their families.
Adventure type play structures look exciting and invite a sense of risk and exploration.
However, young children cannot always safely negotiate these. Themed play equipment helps fill this need. So instead of height, they can pretend to be a captain of a ship, sailing into unknown lands. Or perhaps a train driver who needs to keep climbing up and down into his cabin at each of the imaginary stations.
In a nutshell, themed play structures create a 3D feel to unstructured play.
