Our crocodile features three steps at two levels. When playing on the crocodile, children have to concentrate when moving from one step to the next. This trains both their balance and their eye-foot coordination. The latter is particularly important for the development of children’s fine motor skills. It may seem illogical, but in fact, children must develop eye-foot coordination before they start developing eye-hand coordination, which they use when holding tools or learning to write.
At the playground, the crocodile can serve two purposes. It is a fun item of balance equipment that can stand on its own or be part of a larger obstacle course. At the same time, its thematic design also sparks children’s creativity and imaginative play. It fits perfectly into the pirate universe, but can easily form part of other theme worlds as well. For example, in LEDON Explore’s deep jungle or in a LEDON Castle moat.
The polyethylene boards are 100% recyclable, and contain no hazardous chemicals. They are approved according to the specific requirements of both the EU Toy Safety Directive EN 71 and the US Food Directive.
A 3 mm rubber coating ensures a firm footing for children, even when it is raining and in frosty weather.
Children use their whole body to keep their balance and coordinate their movements on the play equipment. Balance and coordination are fundamental to children’s physical and cognitive development, and it is therefore important that they are stimulated from an early age.
Every function and detail on the play equipment trigger the children’s creativity when playing. Imaginative and creative play is good for children as it strengthens their ability to be flexible and creative in their problem-solving.
Balance equipment is ideal for competitive games such as tag. The games are motivating, and teach children to test their skills and know their limits.
Children use their major muscle groups and strengthen their gross motor skills when playing on the play equipment. Gross motor skills are vital for both their basic motor development as well as their fine motor skills.
Children’s games are often fast-moving, and they must be aware of where their playmates are. This effectively trains their spatial intelligence, which is important for being able to judge distances, their sense of direction and recognising places etc.
