Why Wheels

Why Wheels

We Rock on Wheels is an affordable, mobile version of the We Rock the Spectrum franchise that allows owners to serve families and communities regardless of their location. Each bus features sensory-safe equipment that helps children develop key motor skills, improve their sensory processing, and learn how to better communicate and play with others. With We Rock on Wheels, we bring the sensory play to you! Our buses can cater events, host private parties, entertain at resources fairs, and so much more.

Each one of our buses features sensory-safe equipment that is specifically designed to suit children of all abilities. Our goal is to provide a safe place where all children can learn, play, and grow together.

Our equipment aids all children in the improvement of their sensory functions while they play. Though specialized for children with autism and special needs, the benefits of sensory equipment extends to all children. We pride ourselves in serving children of all abilities, and believe that creating these inclusive environments promote understanding and acceptance.

Our Partners: TUMBLEBUS

TUMBLEBUS has been taking retired school buses and converting them to mobile gymnastic and fitness facilities for more than 30 years. After learning about owners Lindsay and Corey Wall and their passion for providing as many children as possible with the benefits and joy of learning gymnastics, CEO and Founder Dina Kimmel knew We Rock on Wheels needed to exclusively partner with their services. We’re so excited to be working with an amazing family toward our mission of providing a place where all children can be themselves. “Finally a place where you never have to say I’m Sorry!”.

Inside the Bus

Each of our buses feature the following sensory-safe equipment:

Balance Beam

The Balance Beam helps children to build lower body strength and muscle, improve vestibular perception, and develop better motor planning. The end result is that children learn better balance and how to communicate with their body through ligaments, joints, and muscles.

Rope Bridge

The Rope Bridge helps to build lower body strength and teach better balance. Children walk across the rope bridge while working on the vestibular perception of movement in the body.

Rock Wall

The Rock Wall helps children to improve the awareness of their body, develop better motor planning, and work their bilateral coordination. The child’s body weight, combined with gravity, provides additional proprioceptive feedback to joints, helping the child better feel and understand his or her movements.

Climbing Mountain

The Climbing Mountain enhances the body awareness, body scheme, motor planning and bilateral coordination. The child’s body weight, combined with gravity, provides additional proprioceptive feedback to his joints, helping the child coordinate his or her movements.

Monkey Bars

The Monkey Bars work to improve a child’s coordination and sensory feedback. The extra pressure created due to gravity provides additional proprioceptive feedback to their joints, allowing them to work on motor planning, bilateral coordination, and body scheme.

Trapeze Bars

The Trapeze Bars work to improve sensory feedback and coordination. It builds upper body strength while the gravity helps to provide additional proprioceptive feedback to joints, allowing children to better feel and understand their bodies. The swinging motion helps children to work on bilateral coordination and body scheme.

Trampoline

The Trampoline builds lower body strength and helps to teach balance. Children can jump or sit while working on the vestibular perception of movement in the body. This amazing ball of fun also works with the proprioceptive sense for movement in the body as communicated through the ligaments, joints and muscles.

Crash Pit

The Crash Pit is a great fill of sensory-feedback for the kiddos coming off the zip line. Or, you can use it separately for kids to “swim” and play in! They’ll love lying with all the balls, and it’s great for overstimulation as the balls surround the kiddo making them feel safe and comforted.

Zip Line

The Zip Line is a great way to build upper extremity strength, muscle endurance, enhance the ability to integrate and tolerate movement and help give self-confidence as children challenge themselves to hold on long enough to make it to the other end.

Bolster Swing

The Bolster Swing is to be straddled like a horse. The pushing and pulling on the ropes gives it motion from side to side and is a great motor planning and motor sequencing activity.

Daisy Chains

The Daisy Chains are what makes our system unique! All of our buses feature multiple hooks and Daisy Chains to easily swap the equipment, and our many unique swings, in and out. They secure everything into place so all you have to worry about is having fun.

Crash Pad

The Crash Pad is fun and inviting for all children. It’s a perfect landing spot for the children who crave the crash-and-burn input. You can add a weighted blanket and create a calming quiet space, too.

Pommel Horse

The Pommel Horse works to improve coordination as kids must navigate how to climb on and over the apparatus.

Slide

The Slide provides great sensory feedback for children as they experience the speed and pressure when going down.

Hammock Swing

When a kiddo uses our hammock swing, they are not only stimulated with the relaxing back and forth movement of the swing, but they are wrapped up in stretchy fabric that provides them comfort and gentle squeezes, much like the feeling of a weighted blanket. It’s great for children who love to be swaddled or might be feeling over stimulated.

What Parents Say

"BEST PLACE!… My kids go here every time school is out for winter or spring break. Dina is amazing, place is clean, she brings in all sorts of people to make it interesting for the kids. My kids love Coach K who show up all the time. All the mats are new and everything is kept tidy there. It is safe as Dina always has staff members watching the kids all the time. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Kids Gym. And its across the street from CPK!.. U guys are great!…"

-- Ken and Monique F. – Tarzana

"We recently had my daughter’s 3rd birthday party at this gym and it was a blast! The staff was so helpful and professional. You could see the joy on all the kids faces all afternoon! My 6 year old attended the “camp” during the Thanksgiving holiday. One day was “rock ‘n roll” themed. She came home so musically inspired that she pulled out an old box of instruments and got her little sister and I to join her band! We spent the rest of the day creating our own rhythms in her bedroom!"

-- Kim W. – Woodland Hills

Dina, I wanted to thank you for opening your facility in Tarzana to our program and to our families. They had a great time! The families in our program have so few opportunities to experience places like yours and have the chance to interact with their child in a safe, positive environment. I look forward to having more events at your gyms in the future and being able to give more families the opportunity to have positive, fun interactions with their children, in addition to helping parents learn about various child development and relationship focused information.

-- Melissa Miller, LMFT

My hyper child and my younger child both LOVED this place. Clean, fun and is super equipped with sensory stimulation. Thanks DINA!!!

-- Jenny R. – Winnetka

This is a great new place to come and play with your kids! They have different equipment than what you can find in normal places, so it keeps my kids interested. Also, there is so much to do there, but the space is not too big, so it’s not overwhelming, and i can easily keep an eye on my little ones. I also love the arts and crafts corner in addition to all of the gym space. This place is really a gem. I also went to a birthday party here just a few weeks ago and I’ve never seen kids have as much fun at any other gym-type birthday. They were having an absolute blast! This is not just a gym for kids with special needs… it really is for everyone, and such a special place because of that! Very very cool new spot.

-- Danielle P. – Valley Glen

Just love this place!! it is not only a perfect environment for children on the spectrum, but also for regular kids who just want to have a fun time. My boy loves to be there and enjoy all it has to offer! Dina, the owner, is a wonderful person and really cares about children. Her personality can be seen throughout the gym and for me it is my “happy place.” Thank you for creating this magical space!

-- Anne M. – Valley Village

We love this place. My son is 5 and his dad feels like this is one of the few places they cay really play full-out INSIDE! The zip line, trampoline and crafts room are a huge hit with my son.

-- Deborah S. – North Hollywood

My son is almost 3 and has recently been diagnosed with autism. I am constantly looking for places to bring him that aren’t too crowded and that have things that he likes to do. ?We were greeted by the owner when we arrived and she was extremely warm, helpful and hospitable. She has a child on the spectrum- and she is passionate about the gym and how it helps kids with sensory issues,etc. It is really nice to talk to someone who loves what they are doing and are making a difference for kids like ours. The place has E V E R Y T H I N G.

-- Karen V. – Burbank

I absolutely can not say enough good things about Dina Kimmel and this wonderful place she has made for all the children!!! My son, who is 5, is constantly requesting to go to We Rock the Spectrum – It is above all (even Chuckie Cheese!) his favorite place. The staff is warm, helpful, knowledgeable, professional, fun and caring. Dina, (Owner) is so amazing as a person, that her passion and love for all is so reflect in the work she does. Guys, this is SO MUCH more than just a gym for kids. It is a healing center,.. a place to let go and be free, ..a place to be happy!

-- Shelley B. – Studio City

This place is amazing! My wife and I had been looking for a good place to bring our 4 year old son for a while and heard about “We Rock the Spectrum Kids Gym” from a good friend. Our son is on the Autism spectrum and we have had a hard time at some of the other places we have visited. We walked in, and the owner was very helpful. Our son warmed up to her right away – not something he usually does. He then had a great time on the various swings and the trampoline, even interacted with some of the other kids there. We will be heading back there again this weekend (maybe he will even try out the zip line this time), and hope to be bringing some more friends with. GREAT FIND!!!!!!

-- Jim M. – Tarzana

This place is a dream! I have 2 1/2 year old twins who are both on the spectrum. This place is perfect for them, they love it and ask to go to “the gym” Dina, the owner, knows my children by name and always gives them a warm greeting. So much to do, lots of fun! The weekly support group has been awesome for us to meet other parents for support and information.
