Playing in Puddles is thrilled to announce that we have a winner for our Vuly trampoline comp: Congratulations to the Mountain Community Children’s Centre. The centre’s buildings were destroyed by fire a year ago and they’ve since been operating out of a temporary location while they rebuild. They’ve been fundraising for the past year to be able to replace the many things they lost in the fire: toys, tables, chairs, nappy changing tables, bikes, teaching resources, art and craft items, etc.
We are so excited to know that this fabulous trampoline will be used by so many local children and that it can be used in both their temporary facility and new centre. Thank you to Giselle Lindley for making this lovely nomination.
? And a very big thank you to Vuly for running this incredible competition with Playing in Puddles. If you’re looking for an awesome addition to the backyard this Christmas, check out the Vuly range here: https://www.vulyplay.com and read more about their trampolines below.
We read through hundreds of fabulous entries and some truly beautiful poems – thank you to everyone who entered. We’ll be announcing a new comp at the end of the week: stay tuned!
Vuly Play is an Australian designer and manufacturer of safe, strong and springless trampolines. Vuly trampolines exceed current safety standards, with their team dedicated to researching and developing the most secure and trustworthy products for families today.
The Thunder Medium Trampoline is an award-winning design, and one of Australia’s most popular backyard trampolines. The Thunder is built with changing weather conditions in mind, using UV-resistant netting made and durable polyethylene. Families can enjoy peace of mind with Vuly trampolines, thanks to a superfine mesh that is safe for fingers and toes. The trampolines also have a great range of accessories to choose from including a basketball hoop, water mister to keep you cool on those hot Australian summer days, Pulse bluetooth speaker and more.
Trampolining offers a fun, low-impact exercise that helps children develop their balance and motor skills. The up and down movement of a trampoline incorporates both lower and upper muscle groups, to gently enhance core stability. Bouncing also improves bilateral motor skills, by teaching the brain to safely coordinate movements between the arms and legs.
Childhood and early adulthood are considered key ‘bone building’ years. Trampolining supports the growth of healthy bones, ligaments and tendons – by reducing the impact on limbs by up to 80% when compared with other forms of exercise, such as running.
Bouncing on a trampoline is also an excellent cardiovascular workout, that improves heart health and increases the efficiency of little lungs. Regular cardiovascular exercise is particularly important for children who may spend longer sedentary periods in front of computers or screens.
In addition to its health benefits, trampolining is an inclusive playtime activity for children, that is suitable for all ages and skill levels. Playtime offers children an important opportunity to develop their social skills, including sharing, conflict resolution and personal confidence.
Perfect for Christmas
As well as trampolines, Vuly create swing sets too! They even have a 360 degree swing that acts like a surfboard! It’s another awesome addition to the backyard this Christmas. Check out their range here: https://www.vulyplay.com
