There is a garden-full of possibilities for little ones in Happy Hollow! Children from infants to kindergartners will squeal in delight at the whimsical, botanical wonder that awaits them. Forest friends hide under leaves, rest on vines and even hang to the side of the cheerfully colored playhouse.
The Happy Hollow is an interactive playhouse bursting with possibilities in active play, sensory stimulation, motor skill development and imaginative play, that will flourish with your little ones as they grow. Whether slipping mail through the mailbox, playing a song on the snail drum, or ascending the rock climber to slide down the leaves- children will make memories with friends, gain skills, and enjoy the garden of Happy Hollow for years to come.
Sensory Development - Children will find textures to trace their hands over, hear a symphony of sound from the different animals of the house and see flashes of colors. The movement of colorful beads in Ferah the Firefly will catch a curious eye. Carl the Caterpillar’s colorful rings clink and clank together as a child grasps and pulls them. All of these activities help toddlers develop and grow.
Inclusive Play - The Happy Hollow was designed to encourage inclusive play in diverse classrooms. The interior and exterior keep play near the ground so that everyone can reach. Whether children are playing house in the fantastic interior or exploring the many small wonders on the outer shell, everyone can play together.
Motor Skill Development - Children will flip levers on the front of the Mailbox with Chimes and work their whole arm to spin Bertie the Bluebird by the window. Each animal companion and even some of the plants, present tasks that work on the development of skills that will eventually lead them to be able to use a pencil, throw a ball and many other motions that are necessities for growing children.
Indoor or Outdoor Play - Designed to be mobile, the Happy Hollow fits well in both indoor and outdoor environments. Children can experience the nature-inspired elements of the structure outdoors, immediately connecting the insects and animals to the area around them. Or on days when the weather is less than ideal, children can find a safe retreat filled with warm friends.
