Triumph Climber - A multi-level climber where kids of all abilities can play, to help improve motor skills, coordination, strength, and dexterity.  This leads to self-achievement and great self-esteem.

Cozy Coon - a comfortable place where one can retreat or just hang out.  Especially designed for kids on the autism spectrum, this little pod provides a sense of enclosure for children who are over stimulated.

SeeSaw - all children of all ages and abilities get to join in the fun.  The seesaw gives support to children who don't have core strength.

Congo's and the Cabassa are designed at a more accessible angle and height.  These instruments can be played comfortably by all children including those with mobility devises.  The Cabassa produces a metallic rattle as it spins.
