Rotating allows children to experience exciting sensations, experiment with speed and feel the sensation of dizziness or their feet leaving the ground.
Powerful movements are required to make rotating playground equipment start to rotate and create the desired sensations. This helps children develop their motor skills and coordination.
They also need psycho-motor skills to control the speed, slow down, brake and finally stop.
Rotating play also promotes children’s socialisation as agreement is required to initiate the movement of shared equipment and control the speed to suit everyone.
