Design/build of natural playground structures
Kinsol designs sustainable, nature-based playground equipment that supports social interaction and creativity. Our play pieces are designed to encourage children to use their imaginations. Nothing is scripted.
We believe that little hands respond to the natural feel of materials such as wood and stone in a way that deeply connects them with nature. Nature-deficit results from an absence of this sort of connection, and our playgrounds are one part of the solution.
Our play pieces are intended to help children explore their physical environments through balancing, jumping, climbing, swinging and sliding. Learning to take incremental risks and experiencing the joy of overcoming obstacles is an essential part of early-childhood development. Our play equipment is designed to support this type of self-led exploration, with features that are suitable for different age groups from 18-months to teens (moms and dads welcome too).
