About us - Eduplaying



Eduplaying produces human powered, interactive installations for playgrounds, outdoor STEM and science education and audio information.


Today kids are attracted by interactivity. Interactive installations bring kids back to the playground and make them move!

Eduplaying’s playground installations speak the language of today’s kids: interactivity. Using games, sounds, light and buttons our installations engage kids in exciting play. Eduplaying’s products are stimulating the senses, giving an extra dimension to playing, both for kids and adults. Our products are designed to get people moving while having fun.

Our aim is to connect the world of screens and computer games of present-day children to the outdoor playground. We want kids to spend more time playing outdoors. Let's get them moving!

Interactive installations bring kids back to the playground and make them move again. It is the solution for 21th century challenges!

Eduplaying has a clear vision on playing, learning, childhood development and interpretation. In order to continuously shape our thoughts we constantly study independent research, set up research projects our-self and partner with leading play experts and university partners in a variety of best practice fields.

Children - and adults! - of today are playing less than any previous generation, and this lack of play is causing them profound physical, intellectual, social, and emotional harm. Eduplaying develops innovative, kid-inspired play spaces, using modern technology. Our vision is to create ecological play spaces which stimulate both kids and adults to move, connect, create and learn. Eduplaying distributes its products worldwide. We sell our products also through resellers. Our products have proven themselves for over ten years in many playgrounds all over the world!
