That is why all their activities are specially oriented not just around good clean fun, but around getting great exercise and developing in all kinds of other ways!
We thought we would share with you some of the reasons soft play areas are some of the best types of play areas your child can experience, and the ways in which we provide recreation that’s both fun and healthy!
Studies show that active play aids a child’s physical, mental, social and emotional well-being as they mature. Soft play centres are among the most comprehensive and safe ways for kids to develop.
One of the advantages of soft indoor play areas over outdoor areas is that they are designed to be safer with a lower risk of injury.
A child with a developed sense of danger will be more comfortable climbing an indoor frame with a cushioned landing, for example, than an outdoor
structure. Since climbing, when done safely, is a form of exercise that develops coordination and limb strength, it is an important activity for a child to practice.
With a ball pool, foam and soft padding throughout, soft play areas make for safe fun that nevertheless feels thrilling and gets kids’ heart rates up as they navigate a rope bridge or climbing net!
Tamba Tamba provides some fantastic equipment and features that are crafted towards healthy and fun play. Activities based around climbing and swinging develop core strength, but even segments of the play area that do not seem to need physical exertion still develop the mind and body in really important ways.
For example, activities where careful stepping or balancing are required, are great for developing a child’s coordination.
And explorative play – where children are allowed to work through obstacles
without help – is great for developing confidence and letting them find their limits and potential.
As well as running and jumping, many of their activities encourage communication between children, which fosters vital emotional and social skills. Youngsters’ physical and emotional health set the path for their future development, so now is the time to set your child up for the healthiest and happiest life available by letting them play often!
