Delano, Minn. (PRWEB) February 13, 2013
Expanding on its line of inclusive play products, Landscape Structures Inc., a Delano, Minn.-based commercial playground equipment manufacturer, has introduced the We-saw™, a seesaw that was specifically designed to accommodate kids and entire families of all abilities. With its center platform and molded bucket seats at transfer height, this multi-person seesaw is accessible, promotes social inclusion and is great for facilities focusing on multi-generational solutions.
Nearly 14 percent of children have one or more special needs ranging from autism to cerebral palsy. It has long been recognized that children with differing abilities often have difficulty playing and socializing, and more attention must be devoted to addressing this issue on the playground. Additionally, there are an increased number of caregivers who are injured military service members and part of an aging population whose needs are important to consider so that entire families can come to the playground for fun and recreation.
The We-saw provides a truly inclusive play experience, encourages collaborative play and teaches kids about balance. It accommodates multiple users, and the We-saw’s walk-in seating allows for easy access and transfer for those with mobility issues. Kids experience a gentle rocking motion on the We-saw, and in-ground bumpers help prevent the seats from making contact with the ground, which not only extends the life of the product but also protects the safety surfacing. Even more, everyone that climbs aboard the We-saw will experience a fun, user-controlled ride.
Landscape Structures is committed to providing play experiences for children of all abilities. With its design philosophy, which addresses the environment, the play experience and variability, and other inclusive play product innovations like the OmniSpin® spinner and Oodle® Swing, the company helps bring children with and without special needs together to play learn and grow on the playground.
