New product news: are there animals in your playground?

16 November 2018


We’re thrilled to announce the launch of a new active trail range, designed to encourage activity and physical education in primary school children, through the wonders of the natural world. 

Using five of nature’s most interesting & special creatures as guides - cheetah, peregrine falcon, kangaroo, monkey and polar bear - we’ve created trails that will challenge and inspire your children. Each trail has been specially designed to mimic the animals’ actions, and to test children through a range of physical activities, as helping them to learn about the animals in question.

Ben Pearce, Product Designer at Playforce said, “We’re really excited about the opportunities these new trails offer. We recognise that some children are naturally sporty, but others are not. We see this new range of trails as a way to really enhance a child’s physical development without the pressure of team sports. 

“Because each item mimics the animal’s actions - be that climbing and pouncing, climbing and sniffing, swinging from trees, jumping up and down rocks or shuffling along a branch - and each trail features a sign at the start, footprint thermo markings, an illustration and some animal facts, we think this will be a really fantastic way for children to learn about the natural world, while also enjoying active play.”
