Wall mounted Gadget Panels are the simplest starting point for any play area particularly where space is limited and for hygiene and safety reasons, it is unacceptable to have loose ‘bits and pieces’ lying about on the floor that can be stolen or poses a safety risk from tripping and swallowing. Children interact with Gadget Panels by moving handles, balls and cogs in a pattern that uses the children’s fine motor hand & eye coordination and memory skills. In addition, several Gadget Panels are strikingly themed to provide a high level of sensory stimulation in their play.
Gadget Panels are designed tougher than toys, they have a solid core construction (i.e. unlike plastic ‘toy panel options’ that with minor abuse will crack and break) making them tough for commercial applications where you can expect children will abuse them such as in unsupervised areas in waiting rooms, receptions, retail, parents rooms, restaurants, etc.
Playtec Gadget Panels are supplied with a mounting frame or box manufactured from High Density Plastic (HDPE); ready to be installed onto existing walls. Refer to the brochure for dimensions but the weight ranges from about 15kg for the low profile 40 mm deep Gadgets up to about 25kg for others.

Kidea Panel Mazes are designed to a lower price point, comparable to plastic toy panel options you may come across, but with a more durable, solid core construction.
