The Marco Polo Explorer Center is manufactured by SportsPlay Equipment. Unlike many early childhood play systems that are often plastic posts, the Marco Polo comes with heavy-duty 3.5-inch steel posts. The attraction of the Marco Polo play set is not limited to the neutral kid-friendly color scheme. Kids will have a terrific time on the slide from a three foot high deck. A fun fossil climber provides access up to the deck. The two activity panels entertain kids and get them in the mood for adventure all while providing them an education. The counter panel is great for developing young minds on basic math. The compass panel is educational and needs little guidance on how to operate. PlaygroundEquipment.com offers the Marco Polo Explorer Center as a entry-level playground suited for early childhood programs at private schools, daycare programs, and churches that require commercial quality at a fraction of the cost.
