At Imagination Play we let you use your imagination to create the ultimate play time!

We understand that children need to experience certain types of movement for brain and body development. That’s why at Imaginationplay we endeavor to design and build playground equipment to encourage the following types of movement and explain how these movements develop young growing bodies.

 

Balancing, rocking, bouncing, rolling, swinging and spinning activities.

These types of movements promote vestibular development which is linked to balance, inner ear and general co-ordination of children.

 

Applying or receiving pressure, being underneath, squeezing into tight places, being on top or looking out, hanging upside down or balancing.

The types of movements are more commonly known as proprioceptive development. This development is strongly connected to spatial awareness and understanding restricted moving within a defined space.

 

Walking, running, skipping, hopping and jumping.

The above also includes sliding, hanging and climbing. These movements are gross motor development which involves using the larger muscle groups and promotes strength and co-ordination.

 

Pressing buttons, turning handles and grasping objects.

By using fingers and hands for small tasks develops coordination and cognitive reasoning more commonly known as fine motor development.

 

Throwing, catching, reaching and grasping grips and handles.

General hand/eye coordination are one of the most important development attributes with the above actions.

 How do our products or our business philosophy improve the play experience for children?

We understand that children need to experience certain types of movement for brain and body development. Our exciting products are complemented by inspirational and beautifully designed play spaces that every child, regardless of ability, can enjoy!

Play helps children’s development in many ways. Playing gives space to children’s imagination and fuels creativity. Through play, children get to know their physical possibilities and limitations. Challenges and risks teach them to evaluate situations and find ways to go further than before. Playing together with other children helps to develop important social skills.

Unfortunately, playing in general and playing together with other children in particular is not self-evident for every child. Children that have an impairment are often hindered by the fact that many play opportunities seem to be designed for able bodied children only. This can make it difficult for children with an impairment to play with other children, to have fun together and to develop important skills.
