The Straight Swinging Ring Ladder is a familiar playground climber that features an overhead beam with seven hanging ring grips that children swing across to get from one side to the other. This is significantly more fun than a standard overhead climber with fixed bars, because of the added variance of the swinging motion. In addition to encouraging children to exercise their arm and upper body muscles, this activity challenges their agility and coordination as well. If they reach for the next ring and miss, they simply have to try again on the next swing. The ergonomically shaped ring grips are both comfortable and easy for children to hang on to. They are wide enough to be easy to grab, but not so wide that two hands can easily fit on them, which encourages children to keep moving and alternating between their left and right hands. The Straight Swinging Ring Ladder is designed for children ages five and up.
