The mission of Robinia Sport Line is to offer to the children the maximum of the motion and exploration experience.

The benefits of the robinia playground equipment that promotes sport are the development of movement, functional abilities and skills, emotional development, cognitive development, personal development as well as social and moral development.

With our Robinia Sport line we wanted to offer the children the amusement that once nature gave to their ancestors.

Our robinia playground equipment promotes the development of movement and functional abilities and skills as the children gain awareness of their own bodies and their motor skills abilities when overcoming obstacles. Adjustment of movement passing throught different activity segments also requires the ability of the individual. As our robinia playground equipment is composed from a lot of different activities and each one has a wide range of difficulty levels. That promotes the development of coordination, speed, precision and power. The acquisition of several sports, knowledge about movement and developing spatial orientation also happens during play activities on our robinia playground equipment.

Emotional Development when children playing on our stuctures is shown as releasing tension, relief and pleasures emotions such as getting self-confidence and self-esteem, experience the satisfaction, overcoming conflicts and problems and goal achievement.

Cognitive Development that our our robinia playground equipment promotes consists in the development of sensation and perception, learning about and exploring the environment, developing imagination and creativity on the locomotor area, problem solving and development of social cognition.

Our robinia playground equipment also promotes personal development. The children get accustomed to self-determination, they develop autonomy, get to know themselves, gain self-confidence and improve self-esteem, learn about the world, different applications and entering the adult world.

The social and moral development is seen in integration and foster communication, development of social competence such as developing perseverance, order and discipline, mutual cooperation, understanding and respect for others, development of self-control so that excessive aggressiveness, impulsivity are diminishing. Conquering social rules and norms is an important part of playing on our robinia playground equipment from Robinia Sport line.

Professionals recognize that the social skills that children develop on the playground often become lifelong skill sets that are carried forward into their adulthood. Independent research concludes that playgrounds are among the most important environments for children outside the home. Most forms of play are essential for healthy development, but free, spontaneous play—the kind that occurs on playgrounds—is the most beneficial type of play.

Exciting, engaging and challenging playground equipment is important to keep children happy while still developing their learning abilities. These should be developed in order to suit different groups of children for different stages of learning, such as specialist playground equipment for nursery & pre-school children teaching them basic numeracy & vocabulary, to building a child's creativity and imagination with role play panels or puzzles.

There is a general consensus that physical activity reduces the risk of psychological problems in children and fosters their self-esteem. The American Chief Medical Officer's report (Department of Health, 2004), stated that a review of available research suggests that the health benefits of physical activity in children are predominantly seen in the amelioration of risk factors for disease, avoidance of weight gain, achieving a peak bone mass and mental well-being.

Evidence suggests that children who participate in physical activity improve their self-esteem. Ekeland, Heian and Hagan (2005) and Gruber found that exercise programmes had a significant positive effect on children's self-esteem.

Commentators argue that the quality of a child's exercise experience can affect their self-esteem. Ajzen TPB (1991) promotes the notion that children's self-esteem is enhanced through the encouragement of physical mastery and self-development. It can be seen that playgrounds provide an ideal opportunity for children to master physical skills, such as learning to swing, balance and climb. Personal development may be gained through the enhancement of skills, such as playing, communicating and cooperating with other children and adults in the playground.

It can also be seen that public and private playgrounds act as a preventative health measure amongst young people because they promote physical activity at a stage in children's lives when they are active and not yet at risk from opting out of physical activity.

Children have devised many playground games and pastimes. But because playgrounds are usually subject to adult supervision and oversight, young children's street culture often struggles to fully thrive there. Research by Robin Moore concluded shown that playgrounds need to be balanced with marginal areas that (to adults) appear to be derelict or wasteground but to children they are area's that they can claim for themselves, ideally a wooded area or field.

For many children, it is their favorite time of day when they get to be on the playground for free time or recess. It acts as a release for them from the pressures of learning during the day. They know that time on the playground is their own time. Source 

As we want our robinia playground equipment to be very durable, we produce it from hardwood. Robinia playground equipment will withstand many generations of children playing as Robinia is the Europe’s most durable wood. As it is a hardwood it’s resistance is compared to Teak and Iroko. Robinia is a naturally durable timber up to 20 years and more (class 1: very durable according to EN 350-2). Robinia wood is very hard (7,560 N), even harder than Teak (4,740 N), Iroko (5,610 N), English Oak (4,980 N) and Scots Pine (2,420 N), but at the same time very tough and elastic.

As Robinia wood has a high content of natural preservatives, we do not treat the wood with chemicals. This is also a huge advantage for the owner of the play and park: he can decide to never paint the robinia playground equipment.
