Robinia Playgrounds for children from 1 to 4 years of age
The Montessori Project Story - Equipment for organic Robinia playgrounds
In the spring of 2014 we designed the first polygon for the development of children from 1 to 4 years of age from Robinia hardwood. No such type of playground equipment was found on the market till than - we researched in the years before the international fairs in Köln and Nürnberg and the internet. To evaluate this novelty we contacted the nearest Montessori kindergarden and showed them our first sketches of this original idea for Robinia playgrounds. Their reaction was: »We have not seen anything like this before and it really is what the children of the age from 1 to 4 years needs for the maximal development of all their skills. We would love to have this organic Robinia playground equipment in our kindergarden!« This respons was a confirmation to us that we were on the right path. In May 2014 the first polygon was produced and installed for testing reasons.
In June 2014 we tested the organic Robinia polygon with children using it and a Montessori kindergarden teacher observing their play. We asked her to describe the reasons why this polygon is good for children that uses it and she wrote an extensive professional report that in the short says this:
»This unique polygon allows:
1. The development of movement and functional abilities and skills
- Awareness of their own bodies and their motor skills abilities.
- Adjustment of movement requires the ability of the individual.

Than we understood that our simple idea for new Robinia playgrounds was something really great!
So we tested the polygon in conformity with EN 1176 with Bureau Veritas, that is the leading international company in testing playground equipment in Slovenia. From there on the success began as this organic Robinia polygon is one of our best-sellers. The clients in our country let us know that they were totaly satisfied with their purchase. Than we expanded our equipment for Robinia playgrounds to other European markets through our re-sellers and this polygon was the first Robinia playground equipment that we loaded for export. The City of Madrid, the capital city of Spain, recognized the great value that this organic Robinia polygon has and wanted it for their children.
In 2020 we designed a new set of this polygon which I am presenting you in this picture:
