Fun for the whole family
The Yalp Sona includes various exciting and supportive games, such as a dance competition, a game where children have to keep a sequence of numbers, or a lightning-fast racetrack. The game begins, and the children can start right away. With each game, the levels build up in difficulty keeping the games exciting, and children make up their own rules, the game remains challenging at all times. We also regularly develop new games that adapt to the changing world of children.
The Yalp Sona interactive dance and play arch is developed for permanent outdoor use. The bow contains a motion sensor that reacts accurately to the children’s movements on the dance floor. All electronics are safely housed in the steel frame of the Sona. The 4m x 4m play floor is freely accessible (even with a wheelchair), and several children can play on it at the same time. The Sona is fun for the whole family: we regularly see parents and grandparents playing with their children and grandchildren.
This is very cutting edge. Children are able to play several games, and the smart can determine who wins. It's all designed to keep kids moving and having fun.
Inclusive Smart Playground Equipment
What makes for good Yalp Interactive play equipment? In the design process of all our play innovations, we asked ourselves these questions. When are we happy? What is typically Yalp? And what makes our products so unique?
We came up with five core principles that we feel are most important when designing new playground devices.
The Sona has been designed to be fully inclusive through flexibility. Not every game will fulfill every user’s needs, but we offer many games with different experiences for different player preferences and playstyles. With the flexibility of changing and tweaking games through our My Yalp platform, the games and content can be adjusted to match the users using the product at that time and is a big facilitator for play.
