Evaluation

Possessing a formative beauty like an abstract sculpture, the three intertwining rings are packed with many features that are waiting to be discovered by kids playing with them. In addition to climbing up, sliding down, running up, going through, hanging down and finding other ways to move around and play, children can pretend to be on a vehicle or in a house or play hide and seek. Just enough space surrounding the structure perfectly stirs up the children's imagination. You can visualize that the stark white playground equipment will pick up some color over time as it wears out through use and exposure, blending beautifully into the environment.
