2.Slide is the original experience of "speed" for the baby. The slide with different lengths and slopes brings different speed experience to the baby. Most of the baby's first feeling of speed comes from the process of playing on slide.
3.Developing coordination ability and enhancing body control ability. The baby needs to master their own balance and speed in the process of playing on the slide and gets some body coordination exercise.
4.Promoting the movement and development of brain. The baby who often plays on the slide will has very good balance, good balance is the basis of athletic ability.
Ⅱ.How do the children of all ages play on the slide?
8 months -1 year old: At this time, the baby can play on indoor low slide. But the baby can not control the balance of his body, Mom and Dad have to full protect children beside the slide in the process of sliding down.
1-2 years: Under the protection of their parents, the baby can play on a straight slide with relatively small slope and let your baby understand the rules of the slide.
2-3 years old: Try to let baby slide on a small slide. Guiding the baby to control the sliding speed by two ways of holding and release on both sides of the slide, feel to maintain balance and friction.
3-4 years old: You can let your baby try a large slide and a spiral slide. Consciously develop babies’ body coordination. In the case of safety and nobody there, try to let your baby crawl backward from the bottom of the slide to develop coordination of the child's limbs and strength in the hands and feet on the smooth slope.
Ⅲ.Safety apparel for playing on the slide

Skin abrasions: If the wound is bleeding, we must clean the wound first and then disinfect. If there is bruising, cold packs is available.
Notes: Pay attention to skin scald, actually the temperatures of the exposed plastic slides in summer are surprisingly high. It will also generate heat by friction when the baby slides down and will inevitably burns little ass.
