Play Smart

For the first time ever KOMPAN has built the fascinating themes of fairy tales into outdoor play designs, and combined age-appropriate physical challenges with a full digital package of fairy tales and virtual games supporting learning, edutainment and fun.

The result is a new patent pending product line setting completely new standards for what a playground can offer.

Three Key Elements for SMART PLAYGROUNDTM

Themed Play structure

The colourful themed playground structures have two fairy tales in one product, offering age-appropriate physical challenges for both the younger (1-4) and older (2-8) children. The structures facilitate free, guided and instructed play.

The Fairy Tales

The Little Mermaid, The Ugly Ducking and The Tinderbox are loved by children and adults all over the world. Fairy tales are designed for the child's world and spark role-play and imagination. They contain universal truths and provide moral insights.

Digital Content

By using Apps, downloaded for free to your tablet or smartphone, a link between the physical and virtual world is created. The Apps offer you, on the spot, the popular fairy tales of Hans Christian Andersen, to read, or have read out loud in 16 different languages.

More than just for fun.

When designed to really promote child development, playgrounds can significantly improve children's health, learning and social interaction. In fact we see play as nothing short of fundamental to a better life.
