2012-04-Sunkid sets course for summer
Sunkid is constantly expanding its offer even for summer. Today, the company offers a wide range of wooden play equipment: Starting with a simple shovel up to themed special wooden structures.
The attention-getter by far is the play ship which combines many types of play equipment and operates without buried foundations. So whether it’s a daring pirate captain, pioneer on an expedition ship or even the dignified captain of a dream cruise liner – the ship offers kids the optimal setting for their imaginative play. The large sweeping canvas ensures the necessary sun protection during play.
The example of an installation at the Plettsaukopf reservoir lake on the Schmittenhöhe shows that the vast ocean is not an obligatory backdrop for the play ship. Right in the middle of the mountains, at 1,400 meters altitude, yet still with the “sea of stone” within sight on the horizon: A rather unusual spot for a ship! The idea behind it though is to establish a bridge between the Zeller Lake and the Schmittenhöhe in the consciousness of visitors. In the end, the mountain railway as well as the ship crossing will be operated by Schmittenhöhebahn AG.
Tree house adventure
The pirate tree house is also a spectacular attraction for children. The adventurous design in the form of an oversized skull stimulates the imagination of kids playing here. Could it be a pirates’ hideout where the conquered treasures are piled up? To recover these treasures you could attack from the “wobbly bridge.”
As a last resort, the only thing left for the pirates is to escape in a mad rush through a secret passage disguised as a tube slide. Yet the treasure is left behind – and valuable experiences for the children. Since exploration of your own abilities, getting to know your own limits and overcoming fears (height, speed, darkness, etc.) is an essential element of play. And because several types of play equipment are also combined here, the pirate tree house is interesting for kids of all ages.
