Spring riders are a playground classic, but this 4-Way Spring Rider has given the old metal spring rider a face-lift! Safe, durable and affordable, this multi-child spring toy packs a real punch for the price!
Academic Benefits of Spring Riders: By endorsing unstructured play, spring riders can have a truly profound impact on children's educational capacity, social skill development and even overall intelligence.
Cognitive Awareness: It may seem minimal, but young children can increase their problem solving skills with a simple spring rider by accessing entry and exit strategies, and even incorporate imaginative elements into playground recess.
Gross Motor Development: Pediatric development studies have shown that children ages 3-5 require different kinds of large motor equipment (such as playground spring riders) for optimal development. Balance and coordination come largely into play with the motion used while spring riding.
Affective Self Evaluation: As a solitary playground event, the spring rider inspires self motivation. Spring toys additionally require some degree of fear assessment and accepting the challenge of climbing onto an unstable type of playground equipment. The typical playground bouncer can be a bit more challenging than traditional ground-level play equipment.
Spring Rider Safety Standards: We all know how important playground safety is but we often overlook the developmentally appropriate need and desire for risk taking on the playground, especially with preschool playground equipment. Spring riders provide an unknown and often unpredictable motion that children gladly embrace. This controlled risk taking playground equipment is ideal when coupled with appropriate playground safety surfacing.
