WOW – a world of sand play options! The Sandworks unit attracts and holds children in cooperative and deep construction play for a very long time. It is a playground favourite to build with sand. Installed where there is an option to find water, the Sandworks is a very popular play unit. The levels up to the highest platform motivate running up and down, which is great for active play. The platforms are all interconnected with funnels which fuels the attraction for children in seeing sand run through funnels: is it the same sand going in and out? How long does it take to go through? Can it be hoisted back up? The shovels run sand up and down. All of these activities hugely benefit the child’s logical thinking skills and the understanding of material character. The levels invite cooperation in transporting materials, stimulating social skills.

The Fountain water tap is a fantastic play invitation. With its unique universal design it attracts all children in play again and again. The yellow tap only pours water when pushed, and when the child lets go of it, the water stops running, teaching cause and effect to children. It is put at a height where everyone can reach it. Streaming water holds an eternal attraction to children, and when merged with sand, the play experience becomes magical. Pushing the tap and feeling the sensation of water streaming will stimulate children’s thinking skills and their understanding of cause and effect. Furthermore, the tactile stimulation is intense. Merging water with sand will inspire hours of creative play, shaping and building sand, getting to know the changing characteristics of sand when it is dry and when it is wet and can be shaped.

The Mermaid’s Fountain has vivid, warm colors which attract children again and again. The richness of tactile activities to be explored invites deep play and makes the child want to stay and play for a long time and revisit, again and again. The basin table levels support explorative social play across ages and abilities. All children can see the other children playing, get inspired and keep contact with one another. The yellow basin can be emptied by pulling the black water stoppers. Children will do this again and again to watch the water running out from underneath the basin. The red water tub with dispenser is placed at the side to be accessible for all. It works by pushing, making it possible for all to tap the water. The red basin can be turned to supply water in all directions. There is ample table space, allowing for creative play with sand and water. With the proper surfacing, the piece can be used and accessed by all.

The Rotating Table is a wonderous sand play experience for children: the lower table can be turned, so that sand or other materials can be shifted through the holes or down on a platform. The upper table has a sand bowl for mixing materials. There is a sieve to filter materials through and a funnel to shift materials from the upper to the lower table. The lower table can be turned to transport materials around to friends on the opposite side of the table. All these play options stimulate an understanding of cause and effect in the child, that feeds into logical thinking skills: if the lower table is turned, materials can be collected or discharged from the higher table. A wealth of manufacturing possibilities in the Rotating Table, producing or transporting, motivate cooperation and dramatic play, and thus communication skills.
