The Single Hammock Small has been specifically designed for younger children and is the perfect addition to a junior play area. Even with high energy, younger children need opportunities to sit or lie down and relax. With one side higher than the other, the Hammock mimics the slight incline of a bed with a pillow.
The Hammock itself is made of flexform and, connected with rope to mounted posts, the hammock can be rocked side-to-side, creating a comforting, rhythmic motion. This can be particularly soothing, comfortable and/or enjoyable to children with unique sensory needs.
The Single Hammock Small (1200mm x 600mm / approximately 4 feet by 2 feet) is a comfortable addition to a Junior play space. It offers an area for socialization, relaxation, and creative play, as younger children can sit, lie down, and gently rock.
Swinging has always been popular with children of all ages, and the hammock offers a different type of swinging experience that can be experienced solo or with another small friend.
The Single Hammock Small is a kinetic play experience that can provide a comfortable space for children to unwind or wind-up. They may relax and look for cloud shapes or animals or pump the Hammock to rock swiftly. Friends can sit together and chat, or children can lie down on the flexform for a break.
When swinging on the hammock, children have the opportunity to practice their coordination, spatial awareness (if others are around), and movement skills. It also offers a space for regulation and relaxation. The motion of swinging is important for proprioception and vestibular development and fosters coordination and movement skills.
The Single Hammock Small is suspended from black locust posts. The Hammock itself is black flexform rubber with small holes for drainage. The flexform rubber is held by black steel core rope.
The Single Hammock Small is an accessible ground-level play feature when situated on an accessible path or surfacing.
