Spring riders are a playground classic, but this adorable Frog Prince Spring Rider is straight out of the storybooks! Playground bouncers are excellent additions to any new or existing outdoor play equipment project. Just one spring rider can encourage rocking and bouncing play which is not only an exciting but developmentally advantageous piece of playground equipment.
Proprioceptive and Kinesthetic Perceptions: Spring riders meet the key criteria for enhancing muscle memory and improving hand-eye coordination all while kids play.
Visual Perception Skills: Spring riders require perception skills to assess weight distribution while rocking and bouncing on an unstructured play event.
Cognitive Awareness: It may seem a bit subtle, but young children can actually increase their problem solving skills with a simple spring rider by assessing entry and exit points, determining access strategies, and even incorporate imaginative elements into playground recess.
Perceptual Motor Skills: By promoting body awareness, spatial awareness and directional awareness, spring riders practically pay for themselves in developmental value and benefits to the children who play on them.
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.
Motor Skill Development: Spring riders engage muscle groups in the upper body while building grip strength. This playground bouncer also heavily emphasizes lateral weight shifting in tandem with coordination and balance development.
