We focus on designing products that open up a wider range of play opportunities for all children. To do this, we look at playground favourites and the general play experiences enjoyed by many children. We also think about the barriers to play for children who may not normally have access to all equipment. We give those products a makeover – or we start from scratch – and come up with new ideas that all children will love.
Thanks to our continuing dialogue with key charities and leading UK and European organisations, we have a genuine understanding of the types of barriers to play that can affect many children.
Moving equipment provides great levels of sensorial and motor stimulation for all. Children experience speed and controlled movement. This type of play equipment can enable children to acquire or improve their body control and synchronize their movements. Items of equipment including swinging and active movements are a source of positive and unusual feelings for children. These movements can combine coordination, elevated sensations and an awareness of height with fun and speed.
Sensory play equipment and play environments are crucial to a child’s development. Tactile experiences provided in the play space help develop and exercise the user’s sense of touch, smell, vision and sound. This provides the opportunity for a child to have their whole body involved in play, whether it be rolling down a hill, getting wet or playing in sand. Inclusive Play can help provide the opportunity for a child to feel at least one of these experiences.
Music is the universal medium of communication, enjoyment, relaxation and brain development and stimulates parts of the brain related to reading, maths and emotional development. Bring music into your play area and provide children a free accessible facility by using any number of our tuned instruments.
Swings are a playground favourite and a very necessary part of our range as every child has the right to enjoy the wonderful, freeing sensation that the movement of swinging brings.
Electronic play equipment is a new phenomena sweeping across outdoor playgrounds all over the world. The key to long term sustainability is to create products that are inclusive, have multiple functions or choices and where the power comes from a renewable source. We think we have the best solution; all powered by the energy we create from moving our bodies!
Multiplay equipment offers a range of play activities in one solution. Inclusive Play are proud to provide a range that is truly inclusive, accessible to all and offers a range of challenges that will suit a wide variety of needs.
Although we have provided you with PiPA to help you design more inclusive playgrounds, we also understand that having a better grasp of the product mix and the design layout would also be useful. We have designed 7 different Inclusive Play Packages to fit various budget levels, which include products from across our ranges to make your play areas more inclusive.
