Robinia Climbing

Natural Playground Climbing Structures - Robinia Climbing By KOMPAN

A contemporary climbing tree packed with challenges and fun. We all remember that special climbing tree we loved going to as children. We loved it, not because it was easy, but because it was difficult.

Robinia natural climbing structures create the same great feeling for children living in urban areas where trees are few and far between. When climbing up high, a child gets a sense of achievement. Step by step, the child adds positively to his self-esteem. Along the way, the child also develops fine cross-coordination skills, that ultimately help the child learn to read.

Physical benefits of climbing structures

Climbing is fun for kids, they see it more as a game than a chore, so it's an added benefit that the physical activity helps to support their body and skills development. The physical benefits of a climbing structure include:

  • Increased muscle tone and strength from pulling up their body weight
  • Improved fine motor movements through using hand-eye coordination 
  • Improved gross motor movements as they engage their entire body
  • Sharpened visual perception 
  • Refined speed, coordination, agility, and balance

Cognitive benefits

It's not just the body but also the mind that gets exercised when children play on climbing structures. These include:

  • Practicing decision-making skills
  • Completing activities in specific sequences
  • Problem solving

Social benefits

Lastly, the children's social skills start to flourish when playing on climbing structures. here's how:

  • Gaining confidence when faced with challenges
  • Learning to cope with fear and stress 
  • Developing self-reliance when they work on their own
  • Learning to communicate through use of words and actions
  • Learning turn-taking

How to choose a natural climbing structure

First and foremost is quality. Quality should play a major factor when deciding which climbing structure is best for your children, park, school.

Size. How big does it need to be? Most natural climbing structures are big enough to allow around ten or more children on at once, however this will of course depend onthe size of the space you have. You may want to incorporate several smaller structures into your nature space.

Budget. KOMPAN have natural climbing frames to suit most budgets, from modest to extravagant.

What is nature play?
