We offer a range of ramp options because we know that play with ramps is as essential to early learning as play with blocks is. These open-ended tools spark action, critical thinking, and collaboration. They lead to conversations and invention. They introduce physical science concepts like elevation, force, motion, and balance.
The perfect addition to a classroom or community space, Discovery Ramps are a wonderful tool young children use to uncover the basics of force and motion. Choose between the single or triple set to suit your group and space. Or choose the Discovery Ramps Deluxe Set with Caddy for easy set-up, mobility, and storage. The Caddy is also available as a separate accessory.
Introduce curves to ramp play to explore deeper physics concepts and encourage teamwork, creativity and problem solving. The 25 foot long rubber ramp transforms block play into a roller-coaster of exploration. Lacking floor space? The Marble Rubber Ramp is a perfect solution for small spaces, table tops, or shelves.
Supporting our youngest learners, we designed this ramp set specifically for toddlers & twos. Educators use the ramps with children to introduce the very basics of incline, force, and motion. This set of open-ended parts can be used on its own, along with existing blocks, or for sensory play with sand, water, mud, and slurry.
These ramps are designed with outdoor exploration in mind! Use natural materials like water, sand, slurry, pinecones, and twigs to discover flow, force and cause and effect. Choose between Outdoor Ramps with Sandbags or Outdoor Ramps with Stands to establish a learning space that’s both fun and educational. Take the learning one step further with the Teeter Totter Ramps that add balance as a challenging component!
Ramp courses can be as complex as children wish them to be by adding tubes, tunnels, and unique parts such as Kodo’s Deflector Set. From balls and storage solutions to structural add ons, shop our selection of ramp accessories.
Ramp play compels children to practice process skills such as observation, prediction, experimentation, and data interpretation. Additionally you can expect to see progress with collaboration, communication, and create problem-solving.
“My favorite thing about ramp play is the diversity. The kids are always coming up with new ideas and functions for the materials and really have to use problem solving logic to create. I love seeing kids work together, figuring out how to raise a ramp a bit higher, make the ball roll faster, or problem solve why the ball missed its target. It’s just fun!”
