Physical Literacy Products
What is Physical Literacy?
Physical literacy is the desire, confidence and ability to be physically active for life. It involves the development of fundamental movement skills that permit a child to read their environment and make appropriate decisions, allowing them to move confidently and with control in a wide range of physical activity situations.
Play is the inspiration for all Gonge products, which are carefully designed to challenge children’s physical abilities, develop cognitive skills and encourage social interaction. The stimulating range of products combines educational principles, beautiful design, excellent quality and the highest safety standards. Mix and match them all to create an amazing, colorful obstacle course for use inside or outside. Appropriate for children 2-8 years of age.
Gonge products are made in Denmark.
