Waterplay releases new equipment to stimulate curiosity and mindful play

Waterplay releases new equipment to stimulate curiosity and mindful play
October 3, 2018

Leading aquatic play solutions company Waterplay® Solutions has launched the Waterways collection, a unique group of products designed to inspire curious young minds through interactive, collaborative play experiences.

Designed for a range of commercial and municipal installations, Waterways encourages free, continuous skill building play through interactive elements designed to encourage exploration and discovery.

Commenting on the value of skill-building activities in childhood development through skill-building activities, play theory expert Dr. Beverlie Dietze explains “play is such an integral part of learning and building experiences that we carry through to adulthood.

The Waterways product collection encourages peer and multi-generational collaboration, investigation, critical thinking and problem solving through the use of versatile weirs designed to block, catch, dump, guide, splash and plug the water. These products will inspire thoughtful, engaging play that keeps ‘waterplayers’ coming back to learn more and test their theories and abilities.”

Available now to the global market, Waterways is designed for all ages and ability levels and is comprised of five separate products that can stand alone as individual features or be used in conjunction to create a larger, more dynamic play experience.

The unique construction features only one surface connection point per feature making the design easy and cost effective to install and maintain.

Introducing the new product range, Waterplay President Jill White stated “when conceptualising the Waterways product collection we wanted to explore how we could create endless play value in an inclusive, compact, easy-to-install, modular design.

“During the process, we engaged external experts to consult in play theory and strategy, and also met with the design community to better understand the challenges they face when working with traditional play tables.”

Explaining the pre-release testing of the product, White added “the group of Waterplay product testers ranged in age from two to 12 and each age group engaged with the product in such creative ways.

“They investigated, they pushed, pulled, and plugged, they splashed, they spun, they used their knees, hands and even elbows to block water, they helped each other reach and stretch their bodies to engage in elements that were just out of grasp, and they squatted down to get in close to investigate elements that are nearer to the ground.”

Debuting at the NRPA National Conference in Indianapolis, Indiana, USA, on 25th September and set to be displayed at a range of other industry events, Waterplay is excited to share how the Waterways product collection will fit into your next play project.

White concluded “we really can’t wait to share this product with the world. Installers and designers will love how simple and versatile the product is to work with. The play value is endless and it looks stunning.”
