Let Your Students Explore New Worlds With Our Role Play Equipment

Outdoor wooden role play equipment is a key part of every child’s development, and our dens, houses, and hideaways are the perfect places for kids to let their imagination run free. Our Jolly Roger Interactive Pirate Ship combines active play with storytelling, as children of all ages can create their own pirating adventure. 

Dens and shelters can be transformed into shops & home fronts, hospitals, or just quiet places to settle down and read a book. Students love the feel of enclosed spaces as they encourage their imaginative minds to be transported to million different places, from the Eiffel Tower to the Sahara Desert.

Did you know we could make 10,000 of our bestselling outdoor Adventure Playhouses out of the world’s largest tree, the Sierra Redwood? Amazing!

How does Red Monkey Play Support Role Play? 

Roleplay is when your child uses props, settings, and imagination to become another person, animal, or thing. Children do this all the time when engaging in play, and one of the most classic examples is when kids take on new roles, such as doctors.

These are very believable situations for role play, and kids almost certainly will have been exposed to these people or professions to inspire their performances. Roleplay can be tried out in different situations and environments, as well as in the very formal way of role play in a classroom setting. Also, going outside and creating scenarios for children is hugely beneficial as they can use their own imagination, while teachers or carers can simply sit back and observe from afar.

At Red Monkey Play, we understand the importance of allowing students to use their imaginations to make sense of the world around them. Our children’s role play equipment allows kids to recreate the stories they are told, or simply perform their own creative plays, come up with songs and rhythms. Our play equipment provides the space and freedom children need to express themselves freely both physically and creatively, in a safe and secure environment. 

Why Is Role Play Important For Children?

Not only does it encourage physical development, but it also encourages children to explore creative and emotional aspects of themselves. Imaginative play opportunities allow children to develop empathy and social skills, linking stories from books into their play, and acting out scenarios which demonstrate this. These activities also develop an awareness of surroundings and of others, as well as self-awareness. 

How Does Our Role Play Equipment Encourage Role Play?

All our outdoor play equipment is built to develop children’s skills and abilities, the reason why all our range of play equipment and playground surfacing allow children to have a great time in spaces in which they can explore imaginative role-play safely.  

We have a number of different playground equipment which mimics fantastical and exciting settings. Students can pretend they’re in the middle of the Earth, or that they’re a pirate roving the seas. These are suitable for all ages and abilities, including older students and young children. All our climbing frames are fitted with different stations, such as steering wheels and masts, to allow children to role-play more effectively. 

With a Red Monkey Play designed playground, your students can engage in great child-led play, which is not only fun but also beneficial and crucial for their development.
