This adorable Snail gently greets children who arrive to play. Snails are known to represent wisdom, steady progress, persistence, patience, peace and harmony. This Snail represents all of these characteristics with high play value and a fun personality!
With colour-coordinated hand holds, children are invited to climb up and over the shell which features gapped cladding. Climbing holds have been designed on the back, shell, and side of the structure. Children can crawl through, sit inside the shell, or perch up high on its head. The metal antennae, with a bar between them, give personality but also function as hand support. The tallest point of the Snail is 6 feet. The back of the Snail includes a transfer bench seat.
Three pre-designed colour palettes are available (Green, Orange, Blue), or clients can choose two stain colours to customize the Snail to match a theme. The Snail is a perfect sculptural piece for so many play types. With spaces for social and active play, all children will find a way to interact with the Snail.
Like the other critters, the Snail is suitable for many types of spaces that are both traditional (child care, playground) or non-traditional (public space, commercial space). While it is designed for younger children, there’s little doubt that older children will also be attracted to this familiar critter.
The Snail is constructed with a marine-grade plywood frame and is cladded in Accoya. The antennae are stainless steel.
The Snail is an accessible ground-level play feature when situated on an accessible path or surfacing.
option for no stain, up to two stain colours OR stain as predesigned in Green, Orange, or Blue
