Kinetiscape

Silver
2008

Kinetiscape offers a unique playscape experience that connects imaginative play, exploration and cognitive development. It challenges children to make discoveries in their environment and within themselves and provides the feel of an organic, growing environment as it moves with active children. A governor underneath utilizes weights and centripetal force to make it safe to spin without fear of moving too fast. Because it is flush to the ground, kids need not fear missing a step or getting an arm or leg trapped. Children have complete freedom to slide down, climb up or take cover underneath the playscape. Kinetiscape encourages them to utilize larger muscle groups as well as build a sense of mastery and independence.
