Enliven Your Play Space with
Fuzzy Friends are an immersive, inclusive new feature from Playground Grass. These sensory characters are designed specifically for preschools and early childhood development centers to encourage imaginative play as children interact with colorful, tactile mounds.
Meet the Fuzzy Friends!
Engage the Senses for a Richer Play Experience
Children engage in tactile processing when they reach out and touch the fuzzy, synthetic grass-covered mounds. Fuzzy Friends give kids access to the soothing feel of natural grass.
Children can receive and process "Thoughts of the Day" from the Fuzzy Friends and work to apply them to their own lives. Teachers can take this a step further by covering social situations to teach kids healthy behaviors.
When kids see Fuzzy Friends on the playground, they can't help but gravitate towards the colorful, appealing mounds featuring endearing faces. Exposure to different colors, textures, and dimensions further enriches the playing and learning experience.
Perfect for Daycares and Early Childhood Development Centers
Our four sensory characters each represent a different disposition/personality trait and are designed to help students better understand their emotions. When a group of students sees a Fuzzy Friend on the playground, an encouraging "Thought of the Day" will be just a scan away.
