"The Together Glider from Little Tikes Commercial allows all children to play together. This playground feature is another step toward transforming your recreational space into a universally accessible area, making room for children with disabilities or kids who use wheelchairs to participate in fun activities. In order to make the together glider full wheelchair accessible you can purchase a ramp separately to make sure that all children can be included.
The Together Glider helps promote social development for children of all abilities by giving them an inclusive structure they can all enjoy. This glider is a fun, accessible playground structure that encourages inclusivity and unstructured play for every child at the playground.
There are attached benches for children who want to sit down on the glider, and there are plenty of added support rails for kids who want to stand. This motion play equipment allows for unlimited hours of fun for children of various backgrounds and abilities.
All children ages two to 12 can enjoy this inclusive playground glider together, providing an opportunity for meaningful social inclusion in an accessible play space."
