What makes eibe special – 10 good reasons
1. Play value
Friedrich Fröbel, the founder of the “Kindergarten” left the meaningful message: “Play does not mean playing around. It it highly serious and deeply meaningful.”
We wish to pursue this guiding principle and give playing it’s merited value. Enhanced play value is a primary focus of the eibe company philosophy. We want to consider every aspect of this feature and meet all necessary requirements for play equipment: eibe play worlds are valuable in every respect. The educational demand in play equipment has considerably increased in the recent years. We think this is a good thing for a child-oriented development of future generations. Children learn through play and movement, both support and challenge all essential skills. It is therefore all the more important, that the educational aspect and expert opinion of educators is included in the design concept from the beginning. However, the expertise of those who work daily with our play equipment is just as important for us. An ambitious educational concept and inspired children having great fun with our play worlds, that is our claim.
