National Story Telling Week with the Smart Playground

Published 01/02/17

For the first time ever, KOMPAN has built the fascinating themes of fairy tales into outdoor play designs, and combined age-appropriate physical challenges with a full digital package of fairy tales and virtual games supporting learning, edutainment and fun.


The SMART Playground™

The SMART Playground™ consists of 3 elements creating the ultimate playground experience:


1) THEMED PLAY STRUCTURE

The colourfully themed playground structures have two fairy tales in one product, offering age-appropriate physical challenges for both the younger (l-4) and older (2-8) children. The structures facilitate free, guided and instructed play.

3) THE ULTIMATE DIGITAL CONNECTION

Bring your smartphone or tablet to the playground. By using Apps, down­loaded for free to your device, a link between the physical and virtual world is created. The Apps offer you, on the spot, the popular fairy tales of Hans Christian Andersen, to read, or have read out loud in 16 different languages. In addition, the user will get access to a full universe of learning-supported digital games based on the themes from the beloved fairy tales.
