The race track steals the show with toddlers and pre-schoolers on the Motion structure. While this play structure meets the technical specifications for ages 2-5, it was uniquely designed for kids ages 2-3. We recognize that there are huge developmental differences between a 2-year-old and a 5-year-old. By ages 4-5, many kids naturally gravitate to the “big kid” equipment on the playground. Motion is a smart choice for younger children, packing 16 activities into a compact space to keep them busy and entertained in a safe, developmentally-appropriate way.
Plus its whimsical, modern design and affordable price make it an attractive add to your playground.
Even more, designing Motion is as quick and easy as it gets. With one model and one price, all you have to do is choose your colors, and even that’s easy with our recommended palettes.
