Step Up - The Explorer
Add to wish list

Product Code: SU160250

£3,705 ex. VAT

The third of our Step Up range, The Explorer includes four interlinked platforms to encourage a variety of active outdoor play and help children gain confidence in skills such as balance and co-ordination

The Explorer has one large 1.8m square platform to the rear, a central 1.5m square platform and two 1.2m square platforms with staircases.

The clever design of the Explorer enables free flow yet contained play where children can learn and practice social skills such as sharing and turn-taking as well as gaining confidence in physical skills and enjoying the sensation of being “up high” and getting lots of fresh air 

Walkways from each of the staircase platforms lead to the central platform and another walkway then leads from the central platform to the rear platform.

The entire structure is protected with balustrade rails painted in bright and attractive colours, and the stairs in black anti-slip rubberised paint.
