Life Science: IONiX is a visual representation of the science of life. Just as nature is a continual cycle, so is play; IONiX play sculptures promotes looping play patterns that encourage longer periods of activity, improve decision-making skills and enhances cognitive development. Each shape and pattern represents design elements found in DNA.

Shadow Play: Vibrant, translucent panels capture sunlight and cast vivid, colourful shadows below. As children travel up, down, in and around the structure, the seven colours of the rainbow are dispersed throughout the play area, transforming an ordinary play surface into an extraordinary play activity that promotes sensory integration.

Mansfield Ski Resort's Tube Slide offers unstructured play on the slopes

If you’ve spent any amount of time at a playground then you’ve seen that small children love to slide down slides. Now you can bring the twisting, turning fun to the slopes by adding a play area for little skiers to enjoy!

As more and more ski resorts look to increase the number of activities on the hill besides skiing, many are choosing to add fun, stimulating play products for children. Mansfield Ski Club, a ski resort near the village of Mansfield, Ontario, chose GameTime’s PowerScape Tube Slide (see above). This unique feature is located at the top of Hector’s Hallow ski hill (a multi-feature area geared towards young skiers), and gives kids a welcomed play break in between skiing.

PowerScape Timbers: Modern & environmentally-friendly take on a childhood favourite

When we were growing up, a clubhouse was a sacred place to let imaginations run free and play in a world of your own making. Kids would build a clubhouse or fort out of almost anything- scrap lumber, branches or even blankets over chairs.

The designers at GameTime, a division of PlayCore and North America’s leading manufacturer of commercial playgrounds, custom play spaces and outdoor fitness equipment, have taken a modern twist on an old childhood favourite with PowerScape Timbers.
