The butterfly with the coloured wings stimulates both the child’s curiosity and imagination, and encourages the child to go exploring. When the sun strikes the coloured polycarbonate wings, they light up.
The car has a key, steering wheel, gear and ‘speed control’ in the shape of familiar animals – the tortoise and the hare. The key hangs from a galvanised metal chain, which stimulates the senses and fine motor skills, and makes this panel perfect for little fiddly fingers. On the other side of the panel is a beehive and a moving bee, which can fly from flower to hive. The height and the meandering track both test children’s fine motor skills and their sense of movement.
Entry for crawlers and walkers
The crawling ramp has been developed for the smallest children so they can practise their gross motor skills and balance. Read more on page 19. For the older children, the steps are designed with an appropriate number of treads, a strategically positioned handrail as well as movable flowers, which offer increased play value while also training fine motor skills.
In MiniPlay, a bridge is more than just a connection between two towers. It is an experience, and a ‘journey’ that is designed to stimulate the child’s curiosity, gross motor skills and balance. The playful bridges thus distribute maximum play value to the entire play environment.
The iconic faces can be used for language training or as a topic for discussion as part of the child’s cognitive and social development. The panel can also give rise to in-depth exchanges about how the child is feeling. The bee, which can be rotated towards a particular ‘mood’, gives the child something to personify with, so that you can ask “Is the bee feeling happy today?” This makes it much easier for children to express their feelings. The other side of the play panel is designed to encourage discussions about the weather. Here, the red arrow can be moved round to point at the different weather symbols.
Play and development
Play helps to develop the child’s basic abilities, such as learning social rules and gaining an understanding of the world at large etc. All MiniPlay’s play activities support the child’s natural development through movement, mood icons, sloping bridges, domes and more.
The rotating animals are particularly good for encouraging discussions and language training. The four creatures represent different colours; the bottom two creatures crawl, and the top two fly. This soon prompts exchanges about animals and colours, and guessing where the creatures have hidden. At the same time, the game exercises the children’s fine motor skills, cognitive development and language skills.
Safety and closeness
At age 0-4 years, it feels much safer being close to an adult. The height and size of MiniPlay has therefore been designed so that an adult can quickly step in and support a child when playing if a helping hand is needed. The child is thus able to explore and try things out in a safe setting.
Safety is paramount
To ensure that the smallest children can play safely, MiniPlay features non-slip flooring. The series is made of polyethylene, which is approved according to US food safety standards, so it does not matter if a child sucks or bites the material. The entire series is, of course, approved according to EN1176-2018 and certified by TÜV SÜD.
In the shop, the small handle is used to sound the bell, while ‘goods-in’ are received through the rubber hatch. Both activities strengthen the child’s motor skills and encourage role-play and social interaction. The children are kept busy interacting and negotiating, while acting out familiar episodes from their daily lives. The shop is always placed at a low height, enabling shopkeepers and shoppers to communicate easily with each other and swap places
irrespective of age.
The slide is perfect for the youngest children: Going down the slide leaves them reeling with excitement, smiling from ear to ear, and at the same time it trains their gross motor skills and balance while teaching them about gravity, distance and speed. The slide has two handles which are positioned to provide an extra sense of security before launching off.
In the treetops
The world can be seen from a new perspective from the treetops. The impact-resistant polycarbonate dome window ensures that you can safely view the world from above – you can even look out and down thanks to its round shape. At the roots of the tree is a secret cave.
MiniPlay is largely made from maintenance-free polyethylene. The posts are hot galvanized to prevent corrosion and then powder-coated. This highlights the beautiful colour of the posts and makes the surface extremely scratch and impact-resistant while ensuring that little fingers don’t stick to frozen metal.
