ELEMENTAL : HUCKLEBERRY
is a unit for key stage 1 children, providing developmental challenges within a compact and attractive design. The unit is derived from our Klunk design, but adapted to fit into the Elements range by the use of tactile and attractive treated timber throughout.
The overhead ladder is still pivotal in the range of activities on Huckleberry as it provides a rarely encountered challenge; that of taking one’s own body weight through the arms. The challenge develops grip strength, shoulder and upper body strength and core strength. Even if the child is only able to dangle from one rung initially the benefit is unique amongst physical activities. The desire to cross the overhead ladder is a strong one and so this engaging challenge is particularly enduring on Huckleberry.
