The flexible pirate ship allows you to steadily expand your pirate ship, so that your playground investment can stretch over a longer period of time. The advantage of Merkurius is, among other things, that you can place the two sections at a distance to each other, which allows more children to play on and around the pirate ship simultaneously.
Merkurius has many movable parts: a ship’s wheel, compass, anchor, rubber slats, telescope and so on. You can also play in the Captain’s cabin, where you will find the treasure chest, dungeon, diamond panel, rubber slats, the moveable crab and many other play activities.
There are big windows on each side of the cabin so that adults can keep an eye without disturbing the children engrossed in their play. There are two aft decks, one 90 cm high and the other 140 cm. On the top aft deck, you will also find the lantern, which lights up when the sun shines through the shockproof polycarbonate. It is also from here that you can go down the slide.
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.
The posts are powder-coated in beautiful colours to match our theme worlds while also being protected from rust by hot-dip galvanising.
The coloured polycarbonate makes playing extra fun for children as they see the world anew through the windows and domes. Polycarbonate is extremely impact-resistant, whatever the temperature. The material is also UV-protected to prevent the boards from fading when exposed to sunlight.
Children love role-play. It improves their understanding of themselves and their surroundings, because by imitating the world around them, they learn more about patterns of behaviour, social interaction and handling emotions.
With multiple play zones, the play equipment accommodates different play activities and a wide age group while also allowing several children to play at the same time without disturbing each other.
Children love hiding places that make them feel secure and offer quiet moments to talk and share secrets. Also, children from many different age groups use hiding places as part of their play.
The slides are made of polyethylene, which is heat-resistant and therefore does not get too hot to touch in the sunshine.
Making cross-lateral movements with your arms and legs strengthens coordination between the right and left sides of the brain. This is important for children when starting to learn to read and write.
The play equipment offers ample opportunities for children to engage in cooperative play. It grows their social and language skills, which is key to developing relationships and friendships.
The many moving parts support the development of children’s fine motor skills. Through the stimulation of their fine motor skills, children learn to make small precise movements which, among other things, make it easier for them to hold and control a pencil.
