The Spark Series Lotus Step Climber is a climber that uses a combination of both plastic and metal components to create a unique and interesting climber. Each of its four steps are highly detailed pieces of rotationally molded plastic that are made to look like flowers in bloom. This gives the climber a beautiful and natural appearance which adds to the visual appeal of any play structure that it is added onto. The large, flat tops of each step make it easy for children to balance on them, and they can also hold onto the central metal post for additional stability as they climb. This is a compact climber whose small size helps both the children climbing it and the person fitting it into the play structure and installing it. Since the Spark Series Lotus Step Climber is a vertical climbing piece, it does not take up very much space in the play structures design or use zone.
