2 to 12 years
This line of play equipment was developed to appeal to a wide age range by offering a mix of age appropriate play components that promote interactive fun in a safe environment. To prevent injury of young adventurers, 2 to 12 year old commercial playgrounds will not include; overhead climbing obstacles, moving pieces, or spiral slides more than one 360° turn. Our commercial playground equipment built specifically for kids 2 to 12 years old is designed to encourage child development while still promoting best practices in outdoor play and learning. Please verify required deck height though state and local licensing organizations. We are happy to suggest alternative options if decks need to be lower than 60” to meet requirements. Look for play components that will entertain both preschool and school aged children. Popular component choices are slides, music panels and vertical climbers. When considering playground equipment for children 2 to 12 years old maintain great site lines throughout the entire play area and easy access points near the more challenging obstacles. Young children may still attempt difficult equipment, so adult supervision is a must.

Play Areas for Children 2 to 12 Years Old
Child development experts and parents agree play is an essential part of childhood. Outdoor play areas can help children develop physically, emotionally, socially and intellectually. However children of different ages have dramatically different needs for developmentally appropriate play experiences. Because of this commercial play systems for 2 to 12 year olds must follow unique guidelines. Guidelines have been created by organizations such as the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and the National Program for Playground Safety (NPPS) to help make America’s play areas developmentally appropriate, more enjoyable and safer for all children.
Some examples of age appropriate equipment for a 2 to 12 year old play area are:
- Music Panels & Stations
- Vertical Climbers
- Spiral slides up to 360°
- Rotating Tire Swings
- Duel Spring Riders
