Endless ways to experience the joy of spinning!
Commercial playground spinners or merry-go-rounds allows kids to twirl the day away-- fast or slow, one way and then the next. Spinning teaches kids about how their bodies react to motion -- spinning can be soothing one moment and thrilling the next, and children can play where the fun of the spin enters the realm of risk. Like any playground feature, children want to experience risk, and with spinning, they can safely learn what level of risk feels comfortable.
Freestanding spinners provide a fun way for kids to develop better depth perception, balance and cause-and-effect. The spinning motion stimulates kids' vestibular sense, which is the sense that maintains balance while the body is in motion.
Often collaborative, spinners or merry-go-rounds teach children collaboration. When one child is riding the spinner while the other one pushes, both need to work together to make the ride fun.
Landscape Structures' commercial spinners come in all forms -- individual or collective, sitting or standing, enclosed or open. Explore the many options of spin features below and find the one that is just right for your playground design.
