What a find. These absolutely fun Playgrounds are apparently being constructed all over Denmark. We love the originality and the fact that they are constructed to the highest European safety standards. Thinking we need to plan a trip to Denmark just to go play on these playgrounds ... and I'm talking not just the little kids!
We are going to give you a visual feast here ... showing some of the playgrounds created by the company Monstrum. But be sure to hop on over to their site to see all the other original playgrounds they created. their focus is on visual design, motor challenges and safety. According to Monstrum ...
"The foremost purpose of the playgrounds is to challenge the motor skills of the child at all levels. The most successful playgrounds have a clearly defined age group or is divided into separate areas to meet the specific age groups needs. Nursery children need comfort, presence of adults and smaller challenges and older children need speed and difficult challenges, contex and elements like tree houses (seperate from the nursery kids).
Younger kids are driven and inspired by watching the skills of the older kids (mentors), and the older kids are driven by the small victories in which they can measure there own advancement with heights, length and speed."
Kudos to Monstrum!
