A TRADITIONAL WAY TO PLAY

Who doesn’t love to swing? Swings are a basic, traditional, tried and true play element at a park or playground. Children and adults love the pure joy of the “sensation of flight” playground swings offer. You can find the Expression Swing, a GameTime exclusive and the industry’s first playground swing that promotes intergenerational play as adults and children swing together eye-to-eye, here at Park and Rec Pros.

Swinging helps develop fine motor skills—grip strength, hand, arm and finger coordination. Swinging develops a child's core muscles and helps with the development of balance. Spinning on a swing stimulates different parts of a child's brain simultaneously.

Swinging and spinning — trigger important body systems to develop and function properly. Playground movement build gross and fine motor skills, along with core strength. Those movements enhance the vestibular system — the sensory system that helps with balance and coordination — and develop proprioception, or body awareness.
